One of the major responsibilities
of a human resource professional is
to source the right talent for the
organisation. Recruit the right person
for the right role. Job mismatch leads
to confusions and eventually decreas-
es overall productivity and output.
Orienting new employees to their
jobs must not be neglected. Mere
piles of documents and employee
handbooks are not sufficient to wel-
come a new employee. Boring and
unrealistic employee induction pro-
grams often leave employees in a
state of dilemma. Design a suitable
induction programme which not only
acquaints a new individual with the
systems, policies of the organisation
but also makes him feel comfortable
within the system.

to upgrade the skills of its employees

Management can also sponsor the
education of their employees for
them to sharpen their skills and

automatically go to their reporting
bosses for them to evaluate their per-

This way superiors can also keep
a track on their employees progress.
Subordinates must be able to walk
up to their manager s cabin in case
of queries. The "Hitler Approach"
does not work now a days. Problems
must be discussed on an open forum
for everyone to give their suggestions,
feedbacks and ideas. Do not ignore
even the minutest problem.
Any problem left unattended may
lead to a serious situation later on.
Each employee should have a say in
major decisions of the company. This
way employees feel attached towards
the management as well as organ-

Defined Job Responsibilities
Job responsibilities of employees
must be clearly defined to expect the
best out of them. Key responsibility
areas must be designed in line with
an individual s past work experience,
educational qualification and area of
interest. KRAs ought to reflect essen-
tial functions of one s job.
Employees must be motivated
from time to time for them to work
harder even next time and for others
to draw inspiration from them. The
talents of good employees must be
recognised either by offering them
lucrative incentives or giving them
a decent salary hike.
