Bitcoins of ''THE HR'' awards!

 HR awards are crucial marketing strategy tools! HR magazines, Assessment companies, other consulting companies have mined and minted this Bitcoin very well! @people matters, now @jombay (Jan 17th Mumbai), @SHRM, @DDI etc have all played it well to the HR gallery! Great job by all these players in making HR a boardroom discussion topic!

R&R matters and matters much more to the deprived sections like HR, the much critiqued function. People like @Ram Charan and now @Vinit Nayar with @Richard Rekhy pronounced its demise by 2020. Awards may save this function, at-least this is what the Kodak Moment of HR may be believing in! 

The Oscar of HR awards as the compere and some mafia HR leaders on stage on People Matters AYIL 2017 award show called these awards for Emerging HR Leaders below the age of 35 yrs. Leaders on and off stage took pride in calling themselves HR mafia! Welcome @Godfathers! You truly deserve seats in the Khap panchayats now!

This year 13 jury members (only 3 women) selected 11 winners and 9 are women! Interestingly none of the winners come from any company that jury members represent! Is that a rule or real outcome People Matters?

In last 6 years of People Matters AYIL awards number of winners have fallen consistently each year from 35 to 11 this year. Does this mean, we have poorer lots falling into HR function? When jury members are the same as Dwarkanath mentioned during the show, selection bar too must have been consistent. There are mix of MBAs from top tier to MSW graduates in the list. Some with 3 years of experience and some with 14 years plus got recognized as Emerging Leader. One MSW took 14 years to get where top tier folks reached in 3 to 4 years! Some presenters called the 9:2 winner ratio an outcome of @building-diversity? In other words can we call this a forced-selection or simply gender-based reservation?

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. Our model traces its conceptual roots to the psychologist Abraham Maslow’s “hierarchy of needs,
