Mumbai Talk on ‘Diversity & Inclusion’ – August 12, 2017

IMG_7150All Things Talent, after the immense success of its previous talk in Pune, landed in Mumbai this time to organize another successful talk on 12th August, 2017, which focussed on the significant concept of ‘Diversity & Inclusion’.

The event mainly catered to HR Professionals who were interested in obtaining a better understanding of Diversity in the workplace, holding considerable prior experience in Diversity & Inclusion Initiatives.

IMG_7007‘Workforce Diversity’ describes the differences, similarities, and unique features that exist in an organization’s workforce due to the mixture of gender, ethnicity, race, nationality, disabilities, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity, religious beliefs and other such factors.

Like various other aspects of an organization, this too is a double-edged sword, as it comes with both advantages and challenges, which can often be tricky to deal with.

To create more awareness on how to extract the maximum potential from this diversity of workforce, and to minimize the conflicts arising out of it, All Things Talent invited several influential HR hiring and recruitment experts to this talk in order to facilitate a discussion wherein HR professionals could gather keen insights on present trends in managing workforce diversity and the initiatives taken by various organizations to create a more engaging and inclusive environment, which takes into account this diversity.

IMG_6985Mr. Anoop Kamat – Head Talent Acquisition at Johnson & Johnson, talked about the importance of constant monitoring and measuring the impact of D&I initiatives, to keep a check on whether they are actually making a difference or not. He also talked about how D&I initiatives involve ‘betting’ on a new person or new talent, as he/she is pitched to the senior management. This betting, explained Anoop, counts as an important move to instill confidence in a new employee, who is already coming to terms with a ‘culture shock’ associated with a shift in organization. He also highlighted the importance of keeping D&I initiatives simple and integrating them within existing frameworks rather than going for an entirely new one, which may complicate the entire process.

IMG_7042Mr. Ashish Bahl – Head Leadership Hiring at Ocwen Financial Solutions Pvt. Ltd. , broadly centred his talk on the prevailing gender biases in the Indian society and the lack of female representation in the employment scenario. He gave the audience an insight to the biases which exist in households and how they often tend to spill into the workplace. He then elaborated upon the necessary tools which play a significant role in removing gender biases from the hiring process, such as blind auditions and introducing gender-neutral job descriptions. 

IMG_7068Ms. Vinath Hegde – Head CRM at Eureka Forbes, conducted a special session on the ‘EuroAble’ story, an initiative by Eureka Forbes. As explained by Vinath, EuroAble is a BPO of Eureka Forbes which is entirely run by specially-abled workforce. This is one of the projects formulated and launched under the leadership of Vinath as Head CRM. She spoke about the challenges faced by her in setting up this initiative and also about the pride with which all 130 members of the BPO come into work everyday. It was indeed a very moving and inspiring account which earned Eureka Forbes heartfelt respect and gratitude of everyone around.

IMG_7105Ms. Deepa Shankar – Diversity & Inclusion Consultant (Erstwhile, Head of Human Resources at Bristol-Myers Squibb), shared her views on the different focus areas of D&I initiatives based on different societies. She supported this point by taking examples of India and Japan, which are largely patriarchal in nature and as a result focus more on gender diversity and less on the generational differences in any workforce. She also raised some pertinent points on the shared responsibility of the HR and Leadership to drive the D&I initiatives in an organization, as the HR alone can only disseminate the information and not really implement the initiative unless it receives a solid backing and support from the leadership.

All four presentations were followed by a Q&A session by the audience members wherein the speakers resolved any queries pertaining to their respective presentations or on the theme of the talk, in general. 

The event concluded with the presentation of mementos to all the panellists and proceedings were taken forward to a lunch session, which marked the end of all the sessions.

In totality the event turned out to be a huge success, as evinced by the feedback received by our team and we thank all our esteemed guests and speakers for making it so!

See you soon, in a different city, with a new theme!

Pune Talk on ‘Employer Branding’ – July 29, 2017

All Things Talent, after the immense success of its previous talk in Bengaluru, ventured into the new territory of Pune this time to organize another successful talk on 29th July, 2017, which focussed on the popular concept of ‘Employer Branding’.

IMG_1660

The event mainly catered to HR Professionals who were interested in obtaining a better understanding of the essentials of Employer Branding, holding considerable prior experience in Talent sourcing and Branding communication.

Employer branding is the process of promoting a company, or an organization, as the employer of choice to a desired target group, one which a company aims to recruit and retain. It is a term commonly used to describe an organization’s reputation as an employer, and its value proposition to its employees, as opposed to its more general corporate brand reputation and value proposition to its customers.

IMG_1726

To create more awareness on the understanding of effective employer branding as the combination of market research, advisory services, communications and marketing to achieve both a credible and desirable brand position, All Things Talent invited several influential HR hiring and recruitment experts to this talk in order to facilitate a discussion wherein HR professionals could gather keen insights on some of the best practices in Employer Branding and the initiatives taken by various organizations to create a more sustainable employer brand as a living, vibrant and attractive entity.

IMG_1662Pratyush Nandkeolyar – Head Recruitment, India & APJ at BMC Software, drew the attention of the audience to the days when he had just started off in the HR industry. He briefly described the changes which took place during his years in the industry, where every process went from paper to digital. He emphasized on the fact that Employer Branding begins with ‘Recruiter Branding’, as the recruiters, in a IMG_1680way, become the first representatives for their respective firms, to a prospective candidate. Adding a more personalized touch to the entire process, he also mentioned that all stakeholders have to be dealt with using a combination of professional and personal outlook. He then moved on to describe the ‘Strategic Talent Acquisition Road Map’ developed by him which helps him perform his role in a more holistic manner.

Sarang Brahme– Global Social Recruiting & Talent Branding at Capgemini centred his discussion on the importance of ROI, as everywhere, investments are made keeping in mind a projection on its returns. Thus, he connected the dots to reach a point where the journey of a candidate was seen through the lens of a consumer’s journey and vice-versa. The audience found this session to be highly interactive, thanks to Sarang’s efforts to take live suggestions and views on the concept of Employer Branding, from the audience members.

 

Manjula Rao – Vice President HR at Firstcry.com spoke about the difference in IMG_1732Employer Branding strategies for an E-commerce start-up and a well-established corporate organization, keeping firstcry.com as the case in question. She talked about the difference in attrition levels, being zero for mid to senior level. Lastly, she highlighted the importance of employee advocacy and testimonials in being great ways of sharing real stories.

 

All our panellists also answered the queries and questions put up by the audience members. The event concluded with the presentation of mementos to all the panellists and a lunch session towards the end.

IMG_0955_SnapseedThe event mainly catered to HR Professionals who were interested in obtaining a better understanding of the essentials of Employer Branding, holding considerable prior experience in Talent sourcing and Branding communication.

Employer branding is the process of promoting a company, or an organization, as the employer of choice to a desired target group, one which a company aims to recruit and retain.

IMG_0591_SnapseedDebolina Dutta – Director HR at VF Corporation, brought to light her own research thesis on Employer Branding and was kind enough to share and discuss her own findings, as part of this thesis. Her discussion centered around the fact that it is important for an organization to be perceived as ‘fair’ In terms of its practices and attitude towards its employees. She also shed light on some critical factors such as Work Environment, Job Security, Organization Policies, etc. and that these may not be same for all, as they are subject to change with a changing Target Audience.

IMG_0658_SnapseedRupali Sharma – Head Talent Acquisition at RedBus – ibibo group gave valuable insights into how RedBus transformed its Employer Branding strategy and the changes which followed, by taking the example of their ‘Career Openings Page’.

He summed up his talk by shedding some light on what role important stakeholders play in this process, and how it is ultimately important to stay true to the core values of the product as well as the organization.

 

IMG_0879_Snapseed
