Greetings from Team usHR!
We are excited to present to you the 3rd Anniversary issue of TogetHR!
Our baby steps started in September 2011 as ‘usHR’ became the first HR club in the pan-IIM community and we also became the first IIM to launch its own HR magazine. We take this opportunity to thank our founders, our student coordinators over the years, the faculty and administration staff, and above all you, the readers for the constant support and encouragement! Egged on by your enthusiasm, as we continue our journey, here we are with yet another issue of TogetHR!
The Cover Story of the issue, ‘Bringing Together HR and Finance’ talks about how and why two seemingly contrasting functions are working together in an increasingly challenging global business scenario.
The Conflux section features an interaction with Mr. Yogi Sriram, Senior Vice President Corporate HR from Larsen & Toubro. A person with immense experience, he fielded our questions and threw light on various opportunities and challenges faced by big companies today in areas like employee engagement, talent management and use of technological tools.
In the Concoction section, we bring to you a variety of handpicked articles covering the latest trends in the modern business and HR scenario. ‘Contract Labour in Manufacturing sector In India’, ‘Influence of Social Media in building Employee Relations’, ‘HR-A strategic Business Partner in Startups’ (Article of the Issue), ‘The Changing Dynamics of Talent Acquisition’ and ‘Forced Rankings Being Forced Out’ are topics covered.
The Corporate Nuggets section covers one of the well-known names in the consulting industry and one of the famous recruiters across Indian B-schools, Deloitte. We examine the company’s policy trickling down from its vision and mission statement to its human resource policies in domains like talent management, rewards and recognition and learning.
The Campus Buzz section features a report on ‘decipHR’, the inter-college HR case study competition conducted as part of IIM Shillong’s annual B-school fest ‘Khlur-thma ‘14’.
