being an HR, is it mandatory to take permission of sales head for one to one session with other employees

Hi, Do you mean a one to one session with sales employees? Or otherwise, HR just need to send a schedule with a valid reason for a one on one. I guess thats enough. Regards Kalpana

Thank you kalpana for your reply.
if i receive a negative feedback about an "sales manager" from his junior and if i need to verify the same from others by sitting "one to one ". in that case, is it mandatory to share the reason of "one to one session" with sales managers // sales head.

You need to involve the sales head since the manager concerned is part of his department. You can either meet up with the sales head and tell him the facts and the need to do a one on one or you could tell the sales head to join you in the meeting with the concerned sales person. If I were you, I will tell the sales head to join me in the meeting. This will help in ensuring his buy in, for any decision that needs to be taken post the meeting, since he is part of the deliberations.

Please hear the other side also.Do not be judgmental without talking to the concerned in line with Principles of Natural justice.You have to hear his version also from the perspective of Employer (Sales Manager) you should act as Facilitator to resolve the grievance impartially

Dear Santu,
What is the motive/purpose behind this exercise ? Is it routine and customary to have independent one-to-one with sales team without the knowledge or involvement of sales head ? If there is no such precedent take it very cautiously. After all they are also part of your stream unless HR wish to take stock of sales situation to establish or rule out some agenda behind this. In any case, what if you go ahead without the involvement of sales head and you land up in all sorts of negative feed back about sales. Are you going to revamp the team ? How many of them ? What is the mandate & who gave this to you, what level you are in the hierarchy ? My hunch is the entire sales team going to be loyal to the head except a few disgruntled bunch. You have to be clear before taking next step with a plan-A at the same time ready with plan-B as well.

It is customary to to talk to group head, tell him the purpose of one-to-one conversation and win his confidence. Of course, if you are seeking feedback about sales head then it is different.
