We do a lot of transactional job which is actually boring. While things become interesting when we see our idea is taken up or any practice is implemented. Regards Sarit :icon6:

Interesting to me. I am very very junior to all of you. Just started my career in HR.

Hi Shiva,

if you keep doing whatever you have mastered - it will be boring..

But try something innovative... it will be fun.

What I am doing now is - "performace metrics" - really different from the usual ones.

That is- I will take each job, break into 10 different tasks, set the standards for that, create checklists, deviations initimation checklist and dead line :-)

Hmmm they call this KRA/KPI - but mine is even more detailed and gets indepth to the task.

ALways HR is a topic in which you can create so many innovative concepts. Keep thinking.

And if you still feel bugged - just take occassional breaks and go on long drives, with loud music., and a great book to read - else just chose photography.

And get back to work with a whole lot of energy.

Dear Soju,

I do agree with you it was same alike when we started the career and it is like the same with every body who come across a 3+ years in the same path.

Where as my question is any new things are practices can we do here in HR?

HR is a daily learning process - no body will bore if he/she chooses the way to learn the good things everyday instead of repeated tasks. Regards Pankaj Chandan

Dear Chandan,

While you particulate into a stream for some years it will be obvious to you. You can't avoid doing repeating tasks.

Where as this post is indented, to innovate or learn the new things than the general practices of HR.
