The human resource in most companies function on a more important role in the wake of a quickly evolving employee market.

There has been a strong focus on the work culture and employee welfare, and the challenge of development of employees. Human Resource industry also faces challenge with its role being evolved with the technology.

Adarsh Mishra, CHRO, Panasonic India told BW Businessworld, “HR is riding a rush of change. One of the major challenges that exist is the identification of the right workforce which alongside its superior skill-set can also seamlessly blend within the company’s culture. The role of HR today has become extremely diverse, ranging from organizational issues and virtual team management to the process of employee counselling and personal consoling. Thus the challenge for HR’s today is the development of a culture, which creates the correct impetus without compromising company’s interest.”

Neeru Mehta, VP, Human Resources, GlobalLogic India told BW Businessworld, “Indian IT industry is at an inflection point where business models are redefining themselves. HR leaders need to partner towards driving people interventions necessitated to envision the digital tomorrow as this transformation happens where mediocrity will have no place.”

Neeru added, “Traditional Pyramid viewpoint no longer applies and newer workforce segments are necessary. Very real people challenges at enormous scales would need to be dealt with ranging from dealing with a reluctant workforce who have been in a traditional comfort zone to nurturing the new breed of millennials. HR teams who can drive re-skilling and up-skilling will survive the test of strategic business partnership.”

About managing the millennial workforce, Adarsh Mishra added, “Millennials enhance the creative energy around and motivates everyone to work with a similar sense of excitement. As HRs, we must make sure that we are able to cultivate their professional desire in the right direction and make exceptional talents out of them. Apart from talent recognition, millenials are also looking for perks like flexible schedules, opportunities to work remotely and employee- centered workplace to enhance their personality and build their self-esteem. Subsequently, developing robust employee retention strategies are an absolute necessity for HR. The experience and intuition of talented human resources experts is invaluable in this regard.’’

Accommodating corporate culture with a varied work environment structure is an enormous test for pioneers of each industry, not simply HR experts.
