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.

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 :-)

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.

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…
