Hi Friends,

I am sure you are all waiting eagerly to know what happened in the Second citehr Meet at Bangalore. I sincerely regret for the delay in posting the same. More than anybody, I am sure my friends at Bangalore who attended the meet and also those friends who didnot make it to the meet due to personal reasons are anxiously waiting to know what was discussed during the meet. I really don't want to keep guessing! Here is the report.

Though as many as 30 plus friends registered for the meet, finally 17 people landed for the meet thus upgrading from DARING DOZEN to SWEET SEVENTEEN! Again the Rain God spoiled the party by making the registered friends to decide against going for the meet!

Many new people turned up for the meet due to efforts from Mr.Siddeshwar and Mr. Amruth Kumar. Though this was our Second Meet , this time we drew the schedule for that meet and the forthcoming meet, allotting specific time for each item of the meeting. This was proposed by Mr. Kurien and everybody agreed to the same.

Srinaren proposed the name of Mr. Rajaram to become the Moderator for the day's meet. Mr. Rajaram spoke at length regarding meeting every month and discussing some useful topics for the benefit of the HR Community.

Since many were new, Mr. Rajaram wanted everybody to introduce themselves at length so that one can remember them well. But it was really a difficult thing to remember all the new faces by their name. Mr. Amruth Kumar, Great Scope, a trainer by profession came immediately for the rescue of the members by suggesting to play a simple game, so that everybody remembers everybody's names easily. He was so confident that everybody will come out successful! Everybody agreed with the proposal. I am sure you are also waiting to know what was the game!

Well, Amruth schffled few people from their original places and told Rekha to start the introduction. After her, the person who is sitting next will tell Rekha's name and then his/her name and introduce herself/himself. The next person will tell Rekha's name and the second person's name and his name and his introduction! This procedure goes on. The last person that was Siddeshwar was fortunate enough to tell the names of 16 members! The game was a big success and everybody knew everybody's name!

Though we wanted to have discussion on few topics , because of lack of time, we could discuss only two topics. The first topic which was raised was - How to retain employees for a minimum of 3 years? This was put across the board by Siddeshwar.

The discussion was started by Rekha, our Fire Brand Member! Under the present cirucumstances, it is very difficult to retain a person for 3 years! 3 years will be a very long time as the opportunities are aplenty! For a person to stick on to his job, is not only the salary or perks even the atmosphere, the collegues, the avenues for the growth, job satisfaction , all will play an important role. Unless all these are there and last but not the least, recognition has to be there. Even with proper management's decisions and actions, if we can retain an employee for one year, we should feel good!

A discussion was started by Mr. Kurien in the last meeting that was H.R. should not be Human Resources as Resources is something different which is only to be quantified! Joining in the discussion was Col. Rajaram, our new member into the forum agreed with the same and told R should represent Relations and not Resources. Many of the members agreed with the argument and everybody understood, it is the relations with the employees, the organisation can do wonders. That means, the HR people should start thinking that only the relationship with the employees, will help in achieving the goal, vision of the organisation.

Mr. Kurien lastly promised that he will screen a movie on the motivation in the next meeting which was scheduled for November 12.

The Moderator, Mr. Rajaram concluded the meeting by choosing the moderator for the next meet and that was Mr. Kiran Kumar.

Afterwards it was Chilli bhajjies, Maddur vada and Pakoras tickled the tastebuds of members in the rainy evening. Hope that was the grand finale!

Then it was the photo session! I am sure you are all waiting for the snaps. No more waiting. Here it is.......

Hi Shubha,
Thanks for having made up your mind to attend all the future meets. You will be having clear one month time. When you are fixing any programme, you should remember the citehr meet day! As a punishment for having not attended the second meet, you have to get atleast 5 friends of yours for the next meet! Is it ok?

Hi (Cite Contribution),
After a long silence you are back in action! It's great! Thank you very much for your encouraging words. We will try and put the details of the meet. I made it short because taking the clue, somebody may post a topic for discussion so that the matter widens. As I am very busy with my work for the last one month, I request somebody who attended the meet to post the discussions in detail so that we can have the views of the members.
The most important issue was whether we have to call HR as Human Resources or Human Relationships. As I am writing this, a strong urge in me says I should post this as a new thread for discussion. Please do participate in the discussion.

HI Team HR
Thanks srinaren and sidhu for the lovely postings of the pics!
Today i heard a new designation....HUMAN RELATIONS-BUILDER.
Does this not go along with our line of change required in the portfolio building which is consistent with the actual work Hr really does?
Is it time to make our announcements about our next date
and see the HR build up!
Look forward for round three!
