"Haji Ali ", Mumbai

'Haji Ali' song form movie 'Fiza' inspired me to visit 'Haji Ali' and I could not wait for it. I listened to this song many a times in the past but it registered just as a song with great melody, nothing much..

Last week, the 16th Feb 2011, morning. Came back from a jog at VNIT and was cooling off at sofa. Asked Yogesh, my colleage and a new InfoCepts joiner, who stayed with me a the guesthouse, if he had the Piya 'Haji Ali' song on his drive and he did the favor in no-time. Played it and I could not control my tears through the time this song played. It cleasned me.
I got inspired to re-define and speed-up for goals in my life , the way I was contemplating it for quite sometime but could not crystalize due to some reason. This song and the 'moment of truth' was a defining time and I decided to meet 'Haji Ali' and was there on 19th Feb morning.
It was a feeling like coming back to my home and appeared like I knew everyone there and the place was welcoming me. I did smile and cried with pride and gratitude.

Remuneration tends to be one of the worst-managed parts of an organisation’s cost structure. But with 10-70 per cent of total costs wrapped up in it, reward cannot be ignored, particularly in a downturn. To be effective, reward programmes must reflect the needs of the business, now and in the future. Only if they are tied closely to company strategy, business performance and the needs of employees can reward programmes deliver the ROI that is needed in tough times[MK1] .

Aon Hewitt Total Rewards Framework

Aon Hewitt Total Rewards Framework The Aon Hewitt model and approach believes in considering Total Rewards as a business tool and very much linked to overall business objectives!
Reward as understood is a very complex mechanism and some efforts of correcting the base pay and titling in a hurry by many MNCs in India have done a bigger crime by trying to correct it by market adjustments without looking at the talent map, complexity and expectations out of role and mapping it against the benchmark. Titles in India are a big misnomer and hardly any survey on compensation ever probes and captures and calibrates the tangible outcome based bench marking!
