1. What is my current work attitude/approach?
My work as an HR majorly concerns with enabling my employees/managers achieve organizational goals through collaborated efforts and self-motivation. Hence, my work for me is a medium to influence, engage and motivate. It also involves strategic management of purpose, goals and expectations of individuals, in alignment with organizational values and growth.
2. What have I done so far and what am I currently involved with?
I joined as an HR Intern in a start up and took this opportunity to learn about HR and Entrepreneurship. As soon as I joined in, I got deeply involved in the process of shaping the organizations policies and procedures related to Appointment, Compensation, Benefits, Workplace and Team Ethics. After the intense and careful journey through paperwork, I took up the never-ending task of forming the organizational culture and its set of core values. We are still working on it.
My current challenge includes exploring the world of Recruiting, Hiring and On boarding. This includes evolving our Hiring Process while streamlining it with our mission ‘Simplifying Complexity’; and developing a quality based system of processes for Training and Growth; in order to meet individual growth expectations and provide skills based training that aligns with organizations vision.
3. How did I enter the world of HR?
After working through different profiles/organizations for 6 years, I left my job 4 years ago to start my own venture. A home based Bakery that customizes delicious cuisines from across the world, into healthy products of nutritional value. While my goals were clear, I lacked experience in terms of building the right business model and managing production. In time it made me realize the importance of people. Even geniuses cannot build a castle alone. We need people for everything. We need people to design, people to plan, people to produce, people to market and people to sell.
It is then that I realized how Human Resource is closely linked to Entrepreneurship and that in order to manage anything, one first needs to know how to manage people. I am learning and growing at each step of my journey and consistently direct my achievements to enable the overall growth of my organization and its valuable set if employees.
