For all those who are new CiteHR has inspired DELCH (Delhi Cite HR Group) into being. The group actually started in 2005, but had its ups and downs. Thanx to some real entrepreneurship shown by a spunky bunch of HR people, the activities have been revived. What follows are the Mnutes of the Meeting' held on 13 Jan at Okhla.

Delch had decided to meet on 13th January 2008 at 10:30 am. After a bit confusion over the venue, it was finally decided that the venue would be Sanjukta¡¦s Office, at Amkette, Okhla. We are still in the process of finding a central venue to our next HR meets, so that everyone finds it convenient.

It was somewhat emotional for me as Sanjukta has decided to move to Chennai. This was the last time she was attending the Delch meet. It was with her initiative that the Delhi HR meet was started and I am personally thankful to her for bringing us closer to each other.

It was quite nice to see some students from IBA joining for the meet. Infact they arrived half an hour early than the scheduled time!! Also we had Geetika (GEETI) who is one of the key members of the earlier citehr Delhi meet.

Members Present:

1. Sharat Paul

2. Raj Rajeshwar

3. Akshita Ambesh

4. Keerthi Kalyan

5. Dev

6. Gaurav Goel

7. Meha Pushyami

8. Chitra Anand

9. Navinder Singh

10. Geetika Suri

11. Manjushaa Verma

12. Pankaj Hirani

13. Govind Bisht

14. Rajesh Kumar

15. Sushma Rawat

16. Sanjukta

17. Anuradha

As most of the people arrived till 11:15 AM, it was getting late for a formal introduction. Two topics were decided earlier:

One was to be covered by Gaurav and the other by Navinder.

We started with Navinder¡¦s Topic ¡V 360 degree feedback. The presentation is attached for all to gain knowledge. He threw light on key issues, organization trends in using 360 degree, its importance. There was some discussion about how organizations use 360 degree. Some members were of the opinion that 360 degree is followed in their organization without the inclusion of the clients/customers. Some others said that this may take the form of 270 degree. Our discussion still continues on what basically should be included in 360 appraisal. Or it depends on what the company or management decides 360 degree is.

Everybody was so involved that for the first topic only we had crossed an hour. Gaurav had the next topic. But we thought it would be unfair if the important topic was just quickly covered. So we decided to keep the topic for the next meet.

Then we had a brief introduction and we all sat to discuss some key issues. We were all eager to ask Geeti about the previous HR meet and what led to the discontinuation. She showed us a presentation of the previous HR meet and the last they had in August. Delch started in October.,

Some of the suggestions and outcomes in our discussion:

„« Chitra suggested that we should set up a committee so that there is a structured process.

„« Naveen suggested that we could involve the management or Siddharth to be more precise in our meet. He also suggested that a group can be created in Cite HR for the Delhi people.

„« It was also suggested that some amount be taken from the members so that we can arrange for the venue, and other basic things.

„« All the members have contributed Rs. 100 as registration fees. The 4 students were exempted from this.

„« There were some problems which had cropped up in the previous meet. We had to plan out things so that things can go smoothly.

„« It was decided that the meet are not only an individual¡¦s concern but has to be taken collectively. Members were requested to come forward and take the charge.

„« It was decided that like the previous one, this time also we will have 5-6 group leaders and they will coordinate with their groups.

Agenda for the next meet

„« Recruitment Practices ¡V Past and future: By Gaurav Goel

„« Motivation: By MDS Mann (Tentative)

As it was getting closer to 2 pm, we closed our discussion, not before promising each other that we will try to be there in the future meets and taking our motto ¡§LEARNING BY SHARING¡¨ to a higher level.

Hi Team,
Anu & Naveen thanks for the beautifully crafted minutes.
It was both a pleasure & opportunity to spend time with you on the 5th Meet of Delhi people. The discussions & the brainstorming session not only contributed to enriching our individual knowledge, but also forced us to do our Homework :-) again. I am sure all would agree with this.
On a personal note after a long time I came across group which believes in the concept of the CITE HR FAMILY & intends to stay connected as HR Professionals purely for knowledge sharing with no individual monetary interests.
Looking forward to the next meet.....What say DELCH
Cheers !! to the Delhi Gang :-)

17th January 2008 From India, Delhi
hey anu, as said by you to discuss something on HR, I juz encountered a new term, "JOB SCULPTING". IN THE MOST SIMPLEST FORM, ITS "THE ART OF RETAINING EMPLOYEES" LOOKING FOR MORE REVIEWS.. GAURAV
17th January 2008 From India, Delhi
Yup Gaurav
We can discuss what job sculpting is all about. Gr8!!!!!!!
There are so many new things coming in HR and as HR professionals we should know and use the right terminologies so that we excel in our work.
Hoping to get more reviews!!!
Hi Katyana
We have not yet decided about the venue. But we will decide it within the next week and the 6th meet would be sometimes in February.
18th January 2008 From India, Delhi
Thanks a lot Navinder for excellent presentation. I always wanted to know more & more about 360 degree appraisal… Ups! 360 degree feedback…Your presentation was Kamal combination of all information & I also like the appraisal joke which you have mentioned in your slide. Now my concept is very much clear … Thanks a lot for sharing…
We should also thanks to Sanjukta.. she has organized all in her office… It was the last meeting with Her.
And all rounder anuradha… & her minutes of meeting! I truly appreciate her efforts.
As per my opinion every body (Including me) should come forward & take initiatives. This is the only way we can learn. We should grab this excellent opportunity.
So stay in touch & say cheers to DELCH…

I think the slogan mentioned on the site is very apt to describe my own feelings " Knowledge grows when you share it". Lets all continue to grow, my friends!
18th January 2008 From India, Delhi
arre bhai, koi job sculpting bhi discuss kar lo, if anybody knows anything about it....
n plz put the latest HR glossary, i think one word a week can get all of us thru this race of HR profs...
so come on guyz, put in your thoughts...

18th January 2008 From India, Delhi
Hi Gaurav Job Sculpting ke barre mein aap hi kuch batao becoz I think this is a new term and it’ll really nice if you share something about this topic. Sushma
19th January 2008 From China, Beijing
i will share whatever i know, but thats quite less..
well as i told already that its the art of retaining people.

hereby we sculpt/carve/design the job in such a way that it fits according to person's competencies and when a person gets 100% from his/her job, the efforts on retention part can be minimised.
somewhat opposite to job design or job evaluation.
suggestions and feedbacks are welcome.
19th January 2008 From India, Delhi
It was really nice to be there in the meeting. It feels great to learn with friends in a friently atmosphere. In a childs language i can say it i learn while playing. dev :lol:

Anuradha had written :-

Hi Delch...

A very good morning to all!!

Hope everyone is enjoying the weather!

There are some issues which I wanted to discuss with all of u.

1. The next meet:

We can have the next meet in February on either of the following dates.

3, 10, 17, 24

Please let the group know your convenient date so that we can unanimously decide upon the date.

2. The venue:

As you all know we are in the process of selecting a venue preferably a central location. So, Please pour in your suggestions and if anybody can arrange for it, let me know.

3. The speakers:

As we have already decided that for the next meet, Gaurav and Mann would be taking up their individual topics, I would request them again to send us the topic as well as the time to be taken for individual topics.

4. The team leaders:

We had decided previously that we will alot team leaders for a group of 5-7 members. For the previous meet, we had Sanjukta, Rajesh, Meha, Gaurav and Anuradha as the team leaders. I would request Delch to let me know if you will be interested in leading the team. I would request all the members to please provide me with their contact number and their address or the place they reside, so that people from the same location can come together for the meet.

I can understand that everyone is busy with their respective work, but would seriously want everyone to atleast remember each other's name. (kabhi kabhi thoda yaad kar lo yaaro!!)

Waiting for your responses

I had written :-
Thanx for the mail....ive put my thinking cap on...
I think 17 Feb should be fine for a meet...after the valentines day, lest we have hearts popping out of someone's sleeves!
Venue - a big question mark!
Team leader - I think we can continue with the existing team leaders and change it during the next meet - keep it on agenda!
More views welcome!

agreed with navinder..
but i think 10th would be more fine as one of my team member suggested it to me. after that, she has to go to her hometown on 12th.
as for leaders, its completely fine with me atleast and if any changes we can discuss in the next meet.
just a request:
plz dont call us speakers as it sounds that i am going to give a lecture which i dont want.
secondly as some of us discussed with the "IBA" guys to bring their lecturers so that they can enlighten us, i dont like this.
see, i liked the way we people discuss things and i seriously dont wanna it getting formal.
if a prof from some college will come and give us a lecture or a presetation, the whole purpose of conducting the meet will demolish.
however, trainers are more than welcome anytime.
hope i am able to put across my point.

Hi Delch,
Anu thanks for taking your precious time and reminding us.
In my view 17th or 24 th of Feb. is fine.
Venue I am trying to get something in Central Delhi which is not yet final.Wish me luck for that.
Speakers we already have two for the next meet,but we can have some backup for exigencies.
I stay in Noida and my contact no is 09810212549.
22nd January 2008 From India, Delhi
Hi all,
I fully agree with Gaurav, we must not let these lecturers spoil the show. In fact, it was me who suggested this earlier, because I found the concept of IBA students attending also a bit vague....after all we also are not lecturers! At that time I thought, why not get someone from IBA who can also contribute. Maybe, there is a someone in their faculty who would contribute positively. However, any collective decision in the interst of the group is welcome.
Also, the registration fee must be given by all, as I firmly believe in a two way process...and the amount is not much.
22nd January 2008 From India, Delhi
Hi All
I think learning is important. So we should learn slowly and steadily and not jump at learning everything at one time. All the Delch members are taking initiatives to share and contribute in their own way. Navinder is right when he says that registration fee shuld be there as it will be used for venue and the materials in the meet.
Hope people will pour in suggestions.
22nd January 2008 From India, Delhi
Good Morning Delchies…
Wow! It’s actually good to see members are sharing views. I fully agree with Gaurav, Navinder & Anuradha. I am also trying to find out some central place for meeting. Let’s see kya hota hai.
I haven’t received any updated list. Please members check your yahoo group mail & citeHR on regular basis & share your ideas.
As per Navinder, we will make further conversation on citeHR… So I am here..
Meha Pushyami
22nd January 2008 From India, Bangalore
Hi Folks,
I think we should focus on things so that we can share the views and gain knowledge. I don't think its an issue if the faculties come and share the knowledge at their own will. Again that will be a more formalized way and an added advantage to this forum. We should keep our doors open to every knowledge resources.
This is my idea only and rest a common discission is always welcomed...

hey sunaina,
keep checking the forum and this thread to know more.
i think my wish of getting 100 members on the last meet of this year,i.e., december will certainly fulfill.
i agree with navinder on the fees part, even i am a student yaar :wink:
keep discussing new terms all, so that we do not become stagnant.

Dear Delch..

A very good morning to you.

Hope everyone is doing fine!

I think we can tentatively keep our next meet on 17th or 24th February depending upon the availability of the venue. Rajesh and Meha are trying hard to get some place. If anyone gets a place, please notify it to the members so that we can all do our bit of work.

We will have the same group leaders as were in the previous meet and for the next set of leaders we can discuss that in the forthcoming meet.

So the group leaders are:





Please post your details as it will be easier to allocate members. We are yet to receive some of the updates from the members. I would request all the members to please indicate at least their contact number and location( whether Noida, GUrgaon, Dwarka, etc.). Please do not wait for someone to call or personally mail you. I think its everyone's responsibility to contribute towards the core objective of learning. Would prefer if the details come by Monday.

please post your queries and suggestions

A gr8 hi to Delch
I had gone out of station and am back today evening only. I agree with Meha that each and every people is busy but can make some effort to come forward and take the charge. Anyways we would request again to members to update their details. We will start calling people from Monday. So people who have not given their numbers or emails, please do so.
Delhi is getting cold. We need some heat to warm up things. So everyone ready!!!!!!!!!!!!!
30th January 2008 From India, Delhi
Hello Delchies,
Hope everyone is doing fine!
We all are trying to add more experienced people in our forum. As you know, Satish has given us an idea to call all senior HR members. We can learn so many things from these people if they join us. Navinder, Anuradha, Satish, Raul & I are working towards it. But we all want you people to come forward and help us in implementing these ideas. Seriously speaking Delhi HR forum (DELCH) really wants you all.
When we learn something from each other, we're formed by the experience.... we are authors of each other.. - Doc Searls
Together we can make wonders.

Hi Friends
Finally the venue have been finalized. As said by Navin, the date which has been finalized is 23rd February 2008,Saturday. The timing is 4 pm - 6 pm.
Gaurav, I can understand that you have a genuine problem. But if it is possible to modify your plans, we all will be happy. We r getting confirmation from people for 23rd. SO buddy, as Meha said its the problem of venue, we have to take a decision.
Navinder has been the back end support for the Delch group. He has continuously praised Meha and Anuradha, but it was through Navin's efforts that the venue was finalized. So Now we need to thank and appreciate his work. Also Kishan had played the most wonderful part here as Navin has mentioned in his post.
So we would look forward to meet everyone at this meet. For any query post on this thread or at our group mail.
14th February 2008 From India, Delhi
I have just spoken to Arpan....he has yet to confirm the timings. Initially, he was wanting to book it for the time slot 1-4 pm, to which I have expressed doubts, as many of us are working, and it is lunch time. He shall call up and confirm again.
14th February 2008 From India, Delhi
Hi all,
Kishan has finally booked the YMCA hall for 01 March, Saturday from 5-8 pm, as there were some problems as regards the timings for the 23rd Feb.
So, the fresh date is confirmed for 01 March...Finally! Good for Gaurav too... he is finally going to give us some GuruGyan!
I shall also be forwarding the email confirmation from Kishan to the yahoogroup id.
Cheers to life
14th February 2008 From India, Delhi
hey navinder, thanx.....
n m not going to give any gurugyan yaar, it will be very simple thing that we all know already but do not give it a thought sometimes...
