The Human Resources industry is complex, yet always evolving, thanks to the broad range of topics developing due to the current economic climate. Factors like globalization, an aging workforce and decreasing loyalty of employees are creating a radically different HR Environment and pushing companies to alter their HR Strategy.

The “Strategic HR Summit“ organized by SiliconIndia on the June 25th in Mumbai, addressed the issues of how one can adjust to these trends and stay ahead so that your company remains competitive and does not flounder.

What are the HR Trends, Challenges and Obstacles? The future role of HRs as a leader/facilitator in organizational development was explained by the inaugural keynote speaker Vikas Shirodkar, Vice President - Human Resources, General Motors India. He said, “With the amount of outsourcing and automation, administrative and procedural roles are falling away. The main role of HR in future will be managing the culture within the organization and emerging as the performance consultant within the organization and preparing the organization to face the changing environment. An HR must emerge as a leader and integrate talent development with the business of the company”.

Many companies today are asking following questions: How could we move our Talent acquisition from a reactive to a pro-active approach? Are our top talents placed on our key positions? “Succession Management is a strategic HR area which is the key for organizational excellence and competitive edge. In order to make it more effective and facilitate creation of leadership pipeline, this initiative should be there in the CEO agenda in terms of time investment as well as commitment and conviction. HR should act as a change agent and facilitate the process”, said Barttanu Kumar Das, Sr. Vice President & Head-HR, Blue Dart Express.

Sudhakar Rao, Director - HCM Solutions, SAP India addressed the audience on ‘Future of Human Capital Management’ and said that people are the most important asset of an organization and the last great source of competitive advantage. Mr.Raamann Ahuja talked about how by calling oneself a 'Business Manager' rather than a HR person, will bring significant shift in the mindset from focusing on what business really needs rather than just an HR perspective on why talent needs to be hired and why it needs to be retained.
