Strategic Human Resources Management
770 480 Kanhai Chhugani

Human resources should never just be a glorified retention department for employees.  Human resources should be a safe space for all to feel comfortable coming to and talking about whatever is weighing on their minds.  HR should also be an opportunity for companies to learn more about their employees without being invasive or prying.

When a problem arises, human resources management should be able to identify, solve, and learn from them to reduce wasted resources.  In order for human resources management to work efficiently, they need to address cultural, personal, and business strategies.

Sometimes the most efficient of an HR Manager can end up with egg on his face

Here’s how to cope with such a scenario

Haresh Mehta couldn’t  undo April 29, 2015, the day a flunky in his human resources (HR) team accidentally shot off a “You didn’t get the job” email to 60-odd  applicants, including candidates already short-listed for the job!

To be fair, in any manual job, some bloomers can’t be avoided. Others can at least be prevented, if you take the right steps to decrease the risk of messing up. HR Managers who have lived through such nightmares suggest you pin down exactly what you need before reviewing vendors, picking software, filing reports and short listing candidates . Ask questions. Run pilots. Tear apart the charade of smooth-talking sales reps and grill people you want to hire. Leave no stone unturned in doing your homework and then some.

Take a cue from Mehta. He had to send a recall mail but the damage was already done. Rather than look for a fall guy, he later felt compelled to issue a personal apology to all those rejected candidates, explaining what had happened and why they weren’t being considered for the job.
