The question is "Who can be HR Head?"
Very general question but can be answered. At one point or many points of our professional life as employees we all had good and bad experiences with an HR Head. So here it goes......(it would seem we might be looking for a Saint but that's what it is) An HR Head should have the following. . . . . .
1. Strong Leadership - Like that of King Solomon guided by God's Wisdom and Values to be able to lead people
2. Very good Communicator - to be able to cascade policies, hand down decisions to erring employees and even superiors, be able to motivate and push people and objectives to greater heights
3. Very good Entrepreneural and Business acumen- to be able to align people's and his/her department's goals to the bigger strategic corporate business objectives
4. Very good Managerial Skills - should be one of his/her basic skills

Hi all HR Professionals, I would like to know that SAP training is essential to be a HR (payroll)? If Yes, kindly explain Pooja Sharma
Hi Boona,

Your doubt has a meaning. Not all companies have a big HR department. In a department of two, when existing manager resigns, his deputy becomes the Manager by default... so a one man show. Of course, the calibre and skills required for Manager-HR would vary across companies. In some, you need to be sharp, skilfull and energetic. In some, you need not possess anything. The second type of company is more now a days. So it is upto the deputy to decide what his management expects. Depending on the Manager's efficiency and experience, a team will help you to learn and get trained. I am Head-HR and Corporate HR trainer in Chennai.

Hi Pooja

SAP-HR is not always a must. End-user knowledge will do but even if don't have it, no problem. The software implementation team will train you. You have to be serious about it only when you go as SAP (HR) Functional Consultant. I was once a faculty for SAP-HR in Chennai but now I did not get to go into functional aspects.

I don't thing Pooja, SAP & Payroll are specialists' jobs. As a HR person if U have overall knowledge as to how the system works and how the flow of information/data gets/fits into the software & its processing is good enough. In some situation U may need hands on training such as creation & updating of master data and define what type of reporting U would require and when. U may have to develop some modules of MIS reporting periodically. Supposing U R an Engineering graduate with an MBA in HR & incidentally U got exposure to SAP is an added advantage rather than essential. Afterall U R not a programmer. And A Payroll module, in most places, is the domain of Finance & Acs. Yr. best roll will be in Labour Laws enforcements, maintenance of statutory records, returns, etc. needless to say in recruitment, replenishment, placement/induction, training & retraining, refresher courses, court cases, final settlement etc.

In one sentence if we want to tell, a HR person should have the quality of a head and a heart.If we want to borrow the language of Adi Shankara, we can say that a true HR man should be an "Ardhanaarishwara" i.e. he should have all the good qualities of a man and a woman in equal measure. I personally feel the concept of Adi Shankara is an apt description of a true HRman. But he should display the qualities of a man when required and the qualities of a woman when needed. To know when to display which quality at what time is a quality that comes from rich experience. But good judgement comes from experience and experience comes from bad judgement!

The term "full & final settlement" refers to the settlement by which either to make payment or recover (net) finally to an employee leaving the estt. In other words completion all formalities in respect of a person leaving the estt. either on a/c. of resignation, retirement(either voluntary or compulsory-superannuation), death, permanent disablement, medically unfit etc. and see either full payment is made w.r.t. PF/DLI/Gratuity/Salary/leave/bonus etc.
In this HR person obtains all declarations, forms, update records in respect of a person's service till the last day and forward the same to the Acs.for final settlement. While NO recovery towards other dues are possible from PF & Gratuity which settlement cannot be attached even by a court order, dues to employer could be recovered from other heads.

Actually an HR person should put forth all his abilities and the staff of the company towards the company goal. The progress of the company should be simultaneously effected with the growth of a staff. If a staff is not developing his qualities effectively, the company's progress will also be affected.
So HR person should be like a mother in a family.

sharing very good Recruitment MIS for you all... Your Feedback appreciated Arjun 9224408539
