I have recently taken over as the HR on site for a R&D BPO. Before i start plunging in on the job,, I wanted to find out what the managers expect interms of having an HR onsite. SO far the HR had been taken care by the HO in Mumbai
Please help with some suggestions
Thank you

Why not ask them? Arrange a meeting (no moe than one hour) of all managers for three purposes:
1. Introduce yourself. Put a face to the name.
2. Get feedback from the managers as to their rassessmnet of the Home Office's HR action/ inaction/ effectiveness/ ineffectiveness. What they like and what they didn't like and what they expect from local HR. More importantly what local HR expects from them.
3. Arrange for a follow-up meeting in 3 months to get two-way feedback as to the satisfaction of the managers with the local HR and vice versa. Solicit ideas for areas of improvement.
Hope this has been of some help.

Frankly the guys who decided to place a HR person on site, should create a job profile for the HR incumbent on site. You may ask HO to outline their expectations and KRAs for the HR job onsite.
Having said this, is the strength of your own employees or the your contract employees LARGE on site? What are the areas of interface between an employee working on site and the HO? (know from the past).
As one can imagine, your tasks as an on site HR person may be restricted to Attendance Control, Leave Administration, Wage & Salary Administration, Time Discipline and possibly liaise with clients, counseling your employees for grievances etc. But that would be too small job content to place an entire HR person.
All that I am saying is on the presumption that your company's strength on site is substantial but not too large to start a "branch".
Happy to help always, but did this mail in clarifying thinking?
