Dear Swastik,
I simply dont have words to describe how very thankful I am. The tasks that you mentioned is exactly what I am doing currently. Your justification of them is jus what I needed. But Swastik, all the cribbing that I am doing in this thread is not because I don't want to do filing or because I want to change any system. My complain is because 80% of my office time is spent around in waiting for work. From your vast experience, can you give suggestions to tackle that?

THIS is Awesome fine example of someone who knows to be creative and find work even wen there isnt any Kudos to Swastik from my side. Two thumbs up. :D

Dear Leks,

I might be sounding a bit philosophical but remember two things which helped me.

1) Always look at what you have and what can be done and not what you could do with what you dont have.

The free time you have you can start things which you feel is missing from office. For example:

(i) You have an excellent opportunity to interact with people in your organisation and build up a relationship which is one of the foundation pillars of HR. 90% of a HR's work is done through the relationship network he creates.

(ii) You can start a birthday wishing programme.

(iii) You can draft various manuals like: Induction, Discipline ect.

2) The next thing always remember, you should be competing against your ownself. Remember always ask yourself am I better than what I was six months back? If Yes, then find out what more can you do to be better and if No try to find how to overcome the shortfalls. Once you start competing against others you will always feel frustrated and dejected. The grass always looks greener on the other side.

Thank you Sunayana for the compliments.

Kind Regards,
