Dear Saumya,
I appreciate your concern on your connect to the employees of your organisation.
HR stands for Service and Advisory role.
I think you first convince your customers with two influencing areas; 1. Provide best of the HR support and service and 2. Design few good Employee Engagement initiatives.
I believe this will create an acceptance of yours in the new group.
Hope this will help.

A fact that employee engagement drives financial performance within an organization.Firms with high engagement levels tend to perform better financially. But unfortunately there's often a disconnect between the techniques that organizations use to boost employee engagement and the things that actually motivate and inspire employees.

Some suggestions -

1.) Maintain “open door policy” HR communication with employees to encourage them to bring questions and concerns to your attention.

- Always be open, flexible and approachable. Assess your own effectiveness in all areas of your communications, including words, tone of voice, body language and listening as it plays a key role in developing positive relationships with employees.

- Build trust with employees by consistently “walking the talk.” Make it a point to take out time & personally interact with employees at their work stations

- If your company is just too big then you might have a couple of small group meetings, lunches or team outings.

It will make them feel good about themselves. This in turn will make them like you more.

2.) During such interactions get their ideas and feedback which will not only break the ice, you might learn some valuable information as well.

3.) Share relevant information on an ongoing basis to increase employees’ knowledge about the company & their role & responsibilities in it.

4.) Develop a habit of appreciating individual employees and the overall team for performance that exceeds expectations.

5.) Adopt a constructive approach in conflict prevention and resolution that enable you to serve as a role model for employees

6.) Take initiatives to organize team building activities to enhance employee’s skills and effectiveness when working as a team effort

As an HR representative always be polite, patient & act respectfully in all of your workplace interactions, regardless of the circumstances.

If you want other employees to approach you as an HR professional, then you should
First approach them - at their workstations.
Smile and make general conversation
Share a tea or coffee with someone other than your own friends / HR team.
Sit at a table for lunch with employees you don't know.
Get involved in the Induction for new employees - you will create relationships like this
Once they see you as a person, then they will approach you as a person and not HR, and you will get to know what is actually in their minds.
I've tried all this - it works!
All the best
