Speaking on re-engineering human capital, Mr. S. G. Prabhakharan said, “The strategy of managing Human Capital has changed over the years and is perhaps the biggest challenge for Human Resource or Human Capital Managers today.” You may have process and technology in place, but in order to have a successful business, you have to learn to manage your people, he added.
Sharing his views on the theme, Mr. V. Srinivasan told that re-engineering should be applied to three important areas – Hiring, talent retention and performance measurement. Human Resource departments should only felicitate the recruitment process, but hiring right candidates and retaining them is everybody’s responsibility.” A culture of meritocracy also is an important aspect of re-engineering Human capital,he added.
