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.

Info Deals is an IT company that was finding it difficult to carry out some of their HR tasks, namely  recruitment, payroll and benefit administration etc. As they had already invested heavily in technology in the past, mainly in accounting software and mobile office systems, they were a little wary this time. They needed a solution that could easily integrate into their legacy systems, while automating all their routine HR tasks.

HR Department ProgressIt was in the 80s.

When Mr.Harish Goyal got his first job. How he had waited for his appointment letter from the personnel department. In fact, his first few days in the job required him to spend most of his time with the personnel department filling out forms and straightening out administration of legalities, leaves, remuneration and perks along with compliances with law and other such logistics.

In 2014, when his daughter waited for her appointment letter from the HR, Harish was pleasantly surprised.

From the traditional Personnel department to a dynamic Human Resource, so much has changed and how.
