Hi all...
i need your views on Employee commitment. Let me be more specific and give u the problem that i face... we recruit a lot of freshers in the HR team... as u wud agree the work does need commitment and timely completion if we need to build a good culture as we r 'HR'.... When freshers join an organization, they do not understand the need for bein committed to the work they do. I mean in terms of not meeting the timelines, not completing the said work... taking things very lighting.... it generally takes them 4 months to understnd the corporate life and take the rest of the 4 months in understand the nature of biz.. this takes away 8 months of the organization's time in training that person and in a year they tend to leave...
in the same context i want to understand... how should one drive commitment from these freshers... in the span of few months than the long periods...
look forward to ur views...... thnx..parmita

To aviod this type of probelms, the induction program is designed, give them complete picture about your comany policies which includes timely competion of work, discipline and all, assign the task in regular bases and ask the reporting manager to check on the task given to them. i think these may helpful

First of all a departmental induction should be done explaining all the activities of the department and concerned people. And after that I think assinging a mentor or Buddy at work with whom they will work and assist him all the activities he does will help them to learn the practices of the organization. To review their performance ask for monthly feedback from mentors.

Hi Parmita,

Let's accept this - every employee (say every individual) keeps looking for betterment in life. This is not the case with HR or freshers only.

You are right when you say that it takes time for freshers to actually understand corporate requirements. But, the committment depends on many things -

1. Employees maturity and understanding of his career path
2. Market recognition and brand value of the company
3. Employee benefits and remuneration paid
4. Career opportunities at the company
5. Work environment / culture at the company

We cannot expect one to work with a particular company unless the employee wants to continue for a good amount of time. You have to give weightage to all your requirements and your expectations. At the time of taking freshers, be very clear as what are your expectations from the employee and how this job opportunity would give him a good learning for better career prospects. Give the freshers a clear idea about the company, growth plans, milestones achieved, why its a very good place to work and what are HR policies, rewards, etc. Also, take freshers from good institutes, which give the students good exposure to corporate culture in their curriculum. I have seen that freshers from good institutes adapt to corporate requirements very fast and they know the pros and cons of joining a company and continuing for sufficient tie.

Remember the Health and Hygiene theory of motivation - Even you are having healthy conditions at workplace, employees would keep looking for better Hygiene.

Hope this helps..

In most cases this has to do with the company's performance management strategy,
-How effective are the immediate superiors in their induction process?
-Are the goals shared, communicated and agreed?
-Does it matter not to perform?
-What are the rewards of performance vis a vis non performance?
-Are you not putting all the workload on them-b'coz they are freshers-and simply demand performance?
-Does the organisation have a see through system-not one where a new employee is always told where you want to go-if they can't see it, they can't go there!!!!
-May be the freshers have already enlisted your company as a good training ground and not a good place to work for-what incentives are there to contain them?
I hope this helps a bit....

Hi Nebmuk,
I agree with you. I have seen that Freshers are lost in companies. Not because they dont want to work, but because they are not communicated well their roles and responsibilities. So, the onus is on the companies to get the best of the employees.
