Facebook to faceforward...the real world is lot more fun!

We have a facebook profile, a linked in profile, a blog, perhaps a web page and much more to hold on to in the virtual world..All this and loosing touch with the real world, so far explored by being at a mall or a movie..

How about having your yearly calendar and filling it with things like, 2 trip to the heritage site, 80 miles away, walking through the lovely mountain range across the state, having picnic there; build a small documentary on your small v-cam over the best street food in your city, participating in 2 walkathon, 2 cyclothon supporting healthy heart and sponsor a school campaign; attending 2 seminars on non-conventional career opportunities; going for a paint-ball game, an org walk through the village across borders, going for a blood donation campaign, attending crafts exhibition by NGOs; listening to 4 lecture sessions by experts from "education , media, law and science and tech"; learning salad making,  mock tails martini from city's best chefs; attending rewards ceremonies for the unsung heroes; 2 carrom and TT competions, 1 shooting and 1 horse riding session.

Can we have our own calendars for the year, very customized and so varied and colorful?

I strongly believe, we need such calendars for all of us, kids, moms, elderly. We all cannot afford to go through a Disneyland experince but we can have many such adventures and bits of exciting and fun packages, filled with learning and a worthy possession of knowledge and skills for life. More so, it takes out of your chair, where you FB or email. Getting out and exploring life is fun. Meet real people, real facts of life and enjoy the offer of nature and much more that society can offer. All such participations that you make for such events, makes you look at life more saucier than a 2 hour weekend BBQ or Sizzlers.

I wish I could build a strong clubs of enthusiasts from different fields and passions in life, who could organise events across, adventure, food, drama, music, movie, festivals, carnivals, hertitage, sports, culture, media, health and life support,  social causes and much more.


Events driven by clubs specislised in all these areas can create plethora of events through the year to keep people from corporate, academics, families, Graduates who need to undergo lots of GRADUATES MATURITY PROGRAMMES LIKE ONE AT HIGH PLACES AND SAAHAS CAMPS, to stay ahead,  healthy, hearty and engaged with life and self, connected to society that we built as we could not live alone. Then why live alone and lean on FB for connecting to society alone? Come out , form club, organise events, live life with people. Learn and lead a purposeful life.

What is The Hay Group Total Reward Framework

The Hay Group Total Reward Framework A new way of understanding reward Reward strategies must be anchored in business reality to be effective. Which means linking it to your business strategy – and the needs of your employees as well as your organisation. Our Total Reward Framework helps you optimise reward, no matter how challenging the conditions. The issue 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] . The Hay Group Total Reward Framework takes strategy as a starting point – and it focuses on total reward: every financial measure together with no

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! If we dive deep, we will find that the key factors of Education, Experience and Quality of Education, Quality and relevance of experience and education are not calculated granular! A diploma holder technical manager gets the salary benchmarked for the top T-school manager with top quality experience in a challenging and break-through

Well-known interviewing technique “laddering,” the Means-End Chain!

Courtesy HBR article...  The 30 Elements of Consumer Value: A Hierarchy ( Understanding Consumer Decision-Making with Means-End Research - Rockbridge ( Many of the studies involved the well-known interviewing technique “laddering,” which probes consumers’ initial stated preferences to identify what’s driving them In our research we don’t accept on its face a consumer’s statement that a certain product attribute is important; instead we explore what underlies that statement. For example, when someone says her bank is “convenient,” its value derives from some combination of the functional elements  saves time,   avoids hassle,   simplifies,  and  reduces effort.   We have identified 30 “elements of value”—fundamental attributes in their most essential and discrete forms.  These elements fall into four categories: functional, emotional, life changing, and social impact.
