In conversation with an Uber driver 2

  • By -

Uber is in the news for all the wrong reasons. The problems they are having are not just India centric. A judge in Madrid has ordered a temporary halt to the service and Thai authorities say the firm lacks proper registration and insurance. I have been using Uber fairly often and happened to use Uber yesterday too. I naturally picked up a conversation with the driver to gauge what he

People management lessons I’ve learnt from my Dog 5

The first few months are critical. Frappe(our Golden retriever) is close to 3 years old and is fairly independent. However, when we first brought her home we made sure that we were always around watching on her. Toilet training takes time and we had to show a lot of patience during the early days. Getting her used to our home meant we had to spend time with her. We had

How important is it to be dressed ‘right‘ for an interview? 3

These are questions that most candidates attending interviews have.  Our guest writer Ciara who represents Quintessentially People shares some useful advice on dressing for an interview.  Research the company culture You should already be

Why in-house exit interviews do not yield insights? 5

Traditionally, exit interviews are done by the in-house HR teams. The objective is to capture the employees’ feedback at the time of leaving. This is done on the last day in most organisations and is a one on one session with the HR SPOC.

Management lessons from Modi @ Madison 5

  • By -

A lot has been said about Modi’s speech at Madison. He enthralled the 20,000 crowd with his gripping speech and by the end of it he was being hailed as a rock star. Bono, Beyonce and The Beatles have all played at Madison I got myself thinking about what he does differently and how he manages to garner such attention and adulation. When I thought about the qualities he displayed,

Consistency is the key 5

We had to get our house renovated and hence had shifted out to another house. I am now back to our old house that looks new!! The new windows, the fresh paint smell inspires me also to look different (read new ) . The workers pushed my treadmill to the balcony and the additional work load didn’t let me do any exercises (You are right, its an EXCUSE, excuse, excuse). I

Importance of Exit Interviews 4

This blog has been written by one of our counsellors [Sheetal] at AceNgage. During our lunch hour conversations she suggested that we write a post on why Organisations should conduct exit interviews (or outsource it to an expert) which is when I decided that she is best equipped to do it since she personally has done over a few thousand exit interviews so far. “I have already put down my

Corporate lessons from a cricket match 6

India lost the only 20-20 match that they played in England to end their rather disastrous tour. While the loss on itself will soon be forgotten what made news was the way Dhoni decided to handle the situation. India needed 17 from eight balls. India needed anything, anything from Rayudu: a four, a two maybe. But Rayudu couldn’t manage to score. Two dot balls, one on leg, the other on

Office Mahabharata 6

I received this interesting message this morning and decided to use it in my blog. Unfortunately (like a lot of very interesting stuff that we receive via email, texts whatsapp messages and face book posts) I am not sure about the origin and hence cannot give due credit to the person who originally wrote it . The writer has drawn interesting and funny comparisons to our everyday colleagues at work

Advantages of using a recruitment agency 3

I am in conversation with 2 clients’ simultaneously to build an employee referral program as part of their recruitment strategy. Companies have started focusing more and more on Employee referral programs as their preferred recruitment channel since it is more effective and less expensive.
