Are you a Smart HR Manager? This was the theme of the one day Siliconindia HR Symposium held on Februrary 26 in Bangalore.

The event provided exceptional networking between the Human Resource executives, HR Professionals, Consultants, Academicians, Researchers and the speakers, brought all of them on a single platform to explore various aspects of the theme “Smart HR Managers of 2011”.

Smart HR managers adopt a structured approach for making their life easy while hiring new people and retaining the existing ones. This structured approach to talent management involves systematic processes at each stage of human resource management- from searching talent, managing talent and talent engagement. The event had Prithvi Shergill, Senior Vice President, Human Resources, Inclusion and Diversity - Accenture India who shared his expert views on this at our event.

A session on ‘Organization’s Future: Employee learning & development’ was addressed by Dr Pallab Bandyopadhyay, Director Human Resources, Citrix Systems who said, “Current trends in Learning and Development is to make people learn in a manner so that they feel they are in control, so trainers are out and facilitators are in, learning is more holistic now and the emphasis on making them learn "Why" first before "How" In a scenario where emphasis has shifted from employment to employability you will not exist if you do not learn and develop continuously”.

Among the other aspects of HR technologies and competencies that were addressed at the event, was the topic ‘Outsourcing: A strategic solution’ for which Nayana Prabhu, Lead Consultant Corporate HRD from Wipro, said, “To any process that can be standardized and therefore needs to be repeated again and again without any change is ripe for being ‘outsourced’. The HR processes that do not lend themselves to be outsourced are culture building, creating the originations identity & the talent building processes”.

Overall it was an enriching symposium for all HR professionals, which provided an exposure to diverse areas such as Organizational management, Personnel administration, Manpower management, and Industrial management from excellent speakers who gave in their expert views and presentations on different topics.
