Qualities that we Look For While Hiring:
Credibilityreliability – Most importantly, I needed to feel that a candidate was believable and trustworthy.
Teamplayerism – In an organization of any size, collaborative skills are essential. Did a person enjoy being part of a team, or would they rather fly solo?
percentism – How motivated did the person seem? How much could you on count them to go above and beyond when you most needed them in a crisis, or on a tight deadline?
HR Challenges:
The ever green biggest challenges in HR would be acquisition and retention. Today if you See any successful organization they have managed their acquisition and retention considerably well .

May be few more factors which can be considered

Advice For Fellow HR Leaders:
well rather in giving adivce i belive in seeking adive form the every one.knowledge is only weapon which i helpfull making successfull carrer and knowlege is spreaded in lenghth and breath ..
Improving Education system
I reckon education system in India is one among the best in the world ,only place where we lag is identifying children about their talent and we need to allow them to grow in the space and in there filed of interest.
Parents need to know the importance of right education to their kids, and they should not enforce they wishes on their kids .

Good education in India today is available to only those children who economic conditions is good .they is need today that talent should be identified in grass root level and they need to be trained irrespective of their financial and personal back ground.
Pain Points:
1. Removing their misconceptions from their mind( it can be before anybody joins or even after they join).
2. Unrealistic expectations form both management and as well from employees .
Current HR Trends:
Social media is one of the most upcoming trend in HR industry today .social media had today changed the face of HR industry by its vast reach among the pool of talented people ,the speed at which its developing amazes me every time .
It can be used for Talent acquisition, Branding and marketing ,and retaining the employees in any organization.
Apart from this there are few trends in today’s world .which are mentioned below.

1. Outsourcing of HR Functions: The Virtual HR Organization
2. The Healthy Workplace: Wellness, Work-Life Balance
3. The Impact of Technology
4. Talent Management: Leadership Development & Succession Planning
5. Corporate Values and Culture
Attract good people, Retain Better Performers and Advance the Best:
According to me, there are three main areas on which to focus: the quality and market position of your product or service, environment, and compensation.

Key factors like.
1. Environmental factors
2. Corporate culture
3. Smart and Talented Staff.
4. Comprehensive Training plan
5. My opinion on compensation comes last (Pay-for-performance or equity).
Recruiting new generation:
Oh yes really true Gen Y are highly ambitious ,talented and spirited folks that can be seen anywhere in today world.
Recruiting them wouldn’t be a big concern ,since education system in India is so vast that they are available in plenty. But of course hiring the right GEN Y is really challenging task .I believe the regular interview process may not be sufficient enough to identify GEN Y ,we need to come with a new process which can actually create required interest ,once it’s done retention of these GEN Y will be little easy.
Also being HR we need to make them understand that money or luxuries will always a negative in fact on their growth graph ,they need to strive for excellence and we need to make them strive and achieve the goals
