First Day at School 1

My son started going to a new school a few days back and was going through separation anxiety. He repeatedly kept telling us that he wanted to go home and that he could start the next day etc. He was crying until we reached the school gate at which point one of his teachers took him from us and asked us not to worry. The teacher looked pleasing, confident and

Increasing Joining Ratio 1

In the recent past I have seen that Companies are getting more creative and are looking at different methods to engage with employees much before they even join the company. This proactive approach goes a long way on ensuring that the new employees feel a lot more valued. It also reduces first day anxiety levels as employees are briefed on what to expect, whom to meet and also for outstation

Nobody wants to be a bad Manager 1

Its been busy on the personal & professional front like it always ‘appears’ to be , in most of our cases 🙂 HR teams are busier these days , most of them trying to ensure that the Managers complete the ‘task’ of sending out the Annual appraisal scores of all the team members. Don’t you wonder why this gets done only with several reminders , and in the very last

Oh the challenges of recruitment 1

  • By -

My friends in BPO Recruitment teams across several companies are in a terrible mood. Everyone seems to be pissed off with their jobs, hate their peers and are upset with their colleagues. The problem seems to be common. They run a stiff number target ( gosh when will employees be referred to as people and not numbers), somehow manage to meet the target, only to be told that the quality

Its been a while since I last wrote and I can now see why I find it difficult to discipline my 3 year old 🙂 AceNgage recently celebrated its 3rd birthday and one of the biggest lessons I learnt was to keep my eyes and ears open to what Customers say as that will always keep me in sync with what they want. It goes back to what my Dad

With the market looking up and attrition numbers gradually increasing, more and more companies are looking at what is causing their employees to leave. While the best way to understand the root cause of attrition is to have a heart to heart conversation with the attriting employee, it would also extremely useful to talk to employees while they are in the company to identify if there is a potential threat

Better Feedback, Better Decisions 1

Most of you would have read about how US president Obama managed to get the US health reforms bill passed. Definitely a feather in his cap as it will benefit millions of Americans across the society. The most important part is that he is reported to have taken the opinion of the citizen while drafting the bill. Now how cool is that ??!! Now why can’t we in our own

Appraisal Satisfaction Survey – The Need of the Hour 2

  • By -

It is appraisal time and everyone is running behind deadlines and trying to complete the process within the stipulated time. Something I have never understood considering that appraisals & feedback should be a continuous process. One thing that you hear the most during this season is the dreaded word ‘ Bell Curve’. No one knows what it means and the ones who do , cant seem to care to explain.

What do we want from our jobs ? 1

  • By -

A couple of weekends back I was having drinks with a few of my friends from the HR world at TGIF ( I passed by it this evening and it was closed , due to the tragic incident that took place at Carlton Towers earlier this week) and the conversation led to a discussion around what do employees expect from their jobs ? We debated a bit and Money was

Bye Bye 2009 1

  • By -

I wonder what 2009 will be remembered for, or will people even want to ever remember it .We at AceNgage too, had our ups and downs, more downs that ups, predictably. Through the year I met a lot more HR heads than in the previous year. I would joke with them, that earlier they had the money to spend, but not the time, now they have the time to spend
