Dear All, I have been assigned a task by my MD of preparing and presenting to the board the latest and most innovative HR practices that are being followed at the moment. The idea is to introduce some good new HR practices in our organization. I have some ideas, but I would appreciate if the seniors could provide me inputs and insights into what are the latest practices in HR that are being followed around the world (including India).
Warm Regards,
Gaurang Shah

Also companies are improvising on their appraisal systems by introducing new techniques like 360 degree appraisal and Management by objective.
Companies are also standardizing their recruitment process inorder to have the best of the talent by having aptitude test etc.

A survey for employee satisfaction can be conducted throughout the organization. The feedback given by the employees may help improve the process & introduce new practices Thanks

Employee recognition : Spot Awards, Annual Achievement awards, Outstanding performance award, Best Employee award etc. A scanned copy of letter of appreciation along with their photos should be displayed in the notice board. The letter should excel their achievements, i.e how different are they from others? On what grounds were they nominated? How could they serve as role model for other employees....

Together WE - In-house magazine : Once in a quarter these magazines gives a snapshot as to what is happening in their company which includes sharing Company growth, Management Objectives, Customer satisfaction, List of new customer sign-up, Sales review, Customer delivery and feedback, Partnership details, Up coming projects etc. The company also prints the contributions given by the employees such as Motivation stories, Paintings, Poetry, Riddles, Jokes, Technology related articles, Safety and Health related ppt, Nature photographs taken by employees etc.

Reach US : Its a online forum that is available in intranet site of that particular company where employees can post their issues related to work, work environment, HR Policies, Training needs etc. Once in a month HR head along with their executives will have a open meeting with the employees (without mentioning the name of the employee) to resolve it then and there.

Quality Session Meeting : Department wise team meet will be conducted by HR where in which each employee comes up with new ideas and concepts to improve the Quality of work, also how to deliver the same on time, how to reach out for customer satisfaction, technology growth, significance of team work, knowledge on advanced technologies etc., At the end of the meet, department head nominates a employee and gifts him a prize for his innovative and creativeness

Chat : Internal chat will be provided for employees – Easy way to communicate.

An Idea : Its an online forum in the intranet where employees can share their ideas and views on celebrating Annual day function, Kick – off party, Festivals, Get-together day, Birthdays etc. For every best and unique idea there will be a surprising gift.(Movie tickets, team out, team lunch, chocolates, An official day off etc.)

We care : HR should conduct Free Health Check-up for all employees once in a year as well as should call in Doctors/ Psychiatrist for seminars on various topics chosen by employees via poll. Blood donation camps can also be arranged as a part of social service.

Quote for the day : This is done department wise. Any one employee from each department should write a quote on their white board. HR should decide the best quote for the day. The department that gets the highest points for the month would be offered a gift. Gift is again based on the number of points that they accumulate (Hats, Shirts, Coffee mugs etc. with Company logo)

Thank you everyone for your inputs. These are great additions to my presentation. However, I am also looking at innovations in HR that have been brought to India from abroad. I am talking about HR processes that are not part of the normal or traditional HR practice.
I hope to receive inputs along these lines too.

Dear Gaurang
We r never satisfied in our present position. We always aspire for more and remain in expectation. The fulfillment of them only gives us little contentment for the time being. Therefore whatever novelties u offer they can not be a source of permanent satisfaction and contentment.
Further each and every employee wants to be acknowledged as better than other known as recognition- one of the most sought after motivating factor.
It is better U judge from the aspirations of the Employees what exactly do they want? Please do not promise any thing but keep them hoping that they will certainly get them at the appropriate time.
Let some grapevine of these thoughts percolate among your workforce also.

u can even try n include flexi time, flexi schedules which offer the employee flexibility to work anytime in 24*7 environment, compressed work week, home working or telecommuting, work life balance initiatives, social responsibily acts engaging ur employees too.

Dear Gaurang, You may also suggest an ERP system, to create paperless working environment and to make procedures easy for the employees. Regards, Salahudheen
