Dear Sriram,
The biggest gift you can give him is:-
1. Call him atleast once in a week and show your care.
2. Make yourself available just at a phone call.
3. Visit his house at least every 15 Days with Flowers and Sweets.
4. Touch his feet when ever you meet him anywhere.
5. Keep his photo on your table, so that when ever he comes to your office and if he sees his photo, he will be happy.
I dont believe in materialistic gifts as he already might be having the best of today's technology. So better give him the above gifts.

Just check with some insurance companies and find out whether you can get a Mediclaim policy for 5 to 10 years for the entire family where the entire family can get cashless medical treatment.
There are several tailormade policies available. when you enquire your insurance advisor may come out with some policies suitable for this family. Try this, after medical expenses are becoming too costly these days.

I find it amusing to go through the wonderful gift ideas.

What is his age ?

I presume must be 60 (the normal super-annuation age) !

Is it not very young (if one considers how human life expectancy and health has improved in the last century) !!

If you do not believe me, look at how young and healthy some of our Bollywood and Hollywood stars look. I think Syl Stallone, Arnie Schwarz, Sean Connery, Big B, Rajnikanth ... to just name a few; would positively feel offended if one were to suggest retirement or retirement means old age and inactivity !!

In fact these days "retired" persons are more active and productive than "non-retired supposedly active" young persons.

Secondly, I suppose this is not a company gift; but a personal gift from HRs and close associates ??

If so; do you know him well enough to know about his hobbies, passions or taste ??

Even a small gift that is compatible with his hobbies, passion or taste; would bring more happiness and joy.

I am strongly against gifts that reminds a person of his chronological age and forcing (by making such suggestion or having such expectations) a person to lead an inactive, invalid and almost comatose life.

These are not gifts but condemnation and insults; a sentence, better not awarded.

Depending on your budget;
if he is an avid reader - gift him a Kindle or any e-book reader;

if he is a Do-IT-Yourself addict, give him a good hooby-toolset;

if he loves gardening, give him a good 'bonsai' tree or precious plant;

if he loves to drink, gift him good vintage;

if he is a fitness-fanatic, gift him a suitable excercising equipment;

if he is car-freak, give him a suitable vehicle related gadget - sat-nav equipment, car dvd player etc.
The list can go on. One needs to sensitive and genuinely friedly - two qualities a good HR must have or develop. One must think of such gifts as one would like to get for oneself; for if one wants to stay alive longer, some day he too, will retire. Let us apply some thought on it; and choose a gift which is an expression of appreciation, love, respect and the fact that you know the person well.

Warm regards.

Dear Mr. Sriram,
You could give him a large framed group photograph of your entire team [HR or all depts], with the border or the picture comprising everyone's signatures/wishes.
Also, you could gift a painting or a holiday package.

From India
As a testimony to his domain (HR) , a large photo frame with two sides:
one side: a picture of himself all alone (probably from the archives when he joined the company)
2nd side: a large group picture of him with all staffs that can be collected (specially those who he has recruited and are available in the company now)

Dear simmy2009
Thanks for expressing your amusing obsession and a sense of humour.
It reminds me of a limerick :
A silly young fellow named Hyde
In a funeral procession was spied
When asked, "Who is dead ?"
He giggled and said,
"I don't know; I just came for the ride !"
Warm regards.

Dear Ms. Neelanjana,

Queries in this regard, if not related to the above threads should be posted differently and seek for advise / answers.

My Thread was related to "Gift to Boss" and your issue is completely different. Kindly act sensible and be careful in such silly things.

As a CiteHR member, we never want you to go without any guidance , as this forum is most enriching and highly rated knowledge sharing platform.

I would appreciate your interest in the field of HR and wish you all the best for a promising career in HR.

I would say, a professional course in HR , like what you are pursuing now is the best launchpad . Make sure you cover all the areas in this course and make use of the contact / study classes. Try attending different work shops and seminars on HR Topics. Be a part of a good management library and have frequent access to books on Human Resource Management and related subjects. Once you have completed the same, you have set your fundamentals right and now look for enriching your job.

Decide whether you are staying with the same company or not. If you are choosing to be with current company try to intervene and diagnose why HR is missing and been dormant. If you can influence the management to change thier mind set and build up a HR dept, it will be a challenging thing to do.

If you are choosing to move away from the current company, look out for options in other industries which are recruiting HR Talent, apply directly or through reference and prove your mantle in the interviews. Most of the companies will have organized set up of HR, which will give enough exposure and opportunity to grow and build a career in HR.

Hope i have done justice answering to your query

Feel free to be in touch.
