Hi, I am Suresh. I am on the lookout for a practical handbook in HR Management in India. Although I am an MBA in HR, the whole of my career was in administration. Also, I am not familiar with ESI, EPF, etc. If I get some practical knowledge in HR, I can easily find jobs in that area, I suppose. Could you suggest or provide some useful resources?

Suresh, I am planning to do a course in practical HR. The objective of the program is to make budding HRs more employable. Though the program is meant for B School students, I believe it would help people like you. The program was offered to two batches of one of the major B Schools in Kerala and was successful. The program contained five modules covering Labour Law, Compensation management, forming of statutory committees, Negotiation and Industrial Relation activities and Domestic enquiry procedures. Please keep in touch for more details.

You have an MBA in HR yet you know nothing about HR???????????

How does that work?

You have just spent time and money doing a course to gain an MBA. What on earth did they teach you, and more importantly, what did you learn??

Please enlighten us.

In India most of the Universities offer courses based on a curriculum which may not have practical exposure. Though the Faculty Members know that they are doing injustice to their students, they are helpless because they are more concerned about their curriculum. Therefore, some Colleges engage outside resources possessing industrial exposure and offer add on courses out of the syllabus so that they get some exposure and become employable. The students should not be blamed for their inability. Many students teach how to face the real situations only after joining some organisations. Very few, like Suresh, extended his interest to study the practical side of a subject so that he can be employable. You should appreciate him. It is regretting to see your post which is very negative and demotivating. Sorry.

I am sorry you feel that way Madhu.

However I am sure you understand my concerns about this sort of thing. But, on the plus side, your explanation does go a long way towards explaining why there are so many posts here from people working in HR who have absolutely no idea what they are supposed to be doing.

It really is a very sad indictment of the education industry in India, if they are not equipping future employees with the skills they need to find jobs and excel in their chosen career. This problem is exacerbated by employers not allocating senior staff to train the junior staff in their duties. They do themselves a great disservice, and this can be detrimental to the success of the organisation in the long run.

As far as education is concerned, I am not singling out India here either, many other countries have similar problems. Employers here in Australia are screaming to the government that universities and colleges are not providing job ready people who can hit the ground running on day one.

India is touted as a future superpower and they need their people to be educated with real-world knowledge, and able to take on the roles that will help the country soar and achieve great things.

True. The faculty members in many colleges are not even able to complete their scheduled lessons and when they focus on the academic side, the practical training which is needed to make the recruiters happy will be left out. The students also feel that it is good if they concentrate on the examination point because at the end of the day, it will be the marks obtained in the examination that is going to get highlighted. A student who has gained very good exposure to practical HR if not gained good marks will lose his career and that he may not even get an opportunity for higher studies. There marks obtained in the qualifying exams will decide whether he should study further or not. Therefore, there should be some arrangements so that the faculty members can continue with their curriculum and people like us can guide the students through some practical things so that both objectives will be met. We stand for that.

To meet the growing needs of budding HR professionals, who have learnt only theories to pass their exam, I have developed a module containing 16 topics of approx 2 hours duration... it is titled...How to become an HR Professional. Am filling the gap between MBA HR qlfn and Corporate HR! If interested, please revert. Classes are conducted online.
Best wishes
