He tells us the changes and patterns he’s observed over the years and what he expects will happen in the future.
How long have you been working in the field of HR?
Close to 12 years.
How have things changed from when you started to now?
If you talk about HR or Recruiting (considerably a sub function of HR), it is an evolving function and lots of thought leadership and experiments have been done to identify/spot talent. Tools galore and interviewing and assessment techniques are being used to make hiring a more objective process. We have certainly moved beyond the ‘pigeon-holing’ period of hiring and now are in a time where we see a war being waged over talent in India, which is evident in the face of the start-up revolution we are witnessing.
