Employee retention cannot be a One-Night stand 3

Employee attrition continues to among the top 3 challenges that Organisations face. In spite of this several organisations deploy knee jerk reactions and strategies in an attempt stem it. The fact is that retention will improve only when the actions being taken are consistent and the success is constantly measured There are 2 parts to reducing attrition: Knowing exactly why employees leave. Building & Monitoring action plans. Based on the

The ability to hire good talent has become that much more difficult and now both hiring & retention have become big issues that need to be dealt with urgency. With companies fighting for talent , it has become all the more important for companies

The increasing trend of Outsourcing exit interviews 4

  • By -

It’s been a 7-year journey and when we set out explaining to our clients why they should outsource their exit interviews, we were met with quite a bit of resistance. Core Competency The most common objection was that its core HR. While everyone is entitled to their opinion, I believe that core HR is mainly about using the information gathered by the third party, to engage with employees better. Sitting

How proactive is your HR team? 2

  • By -

We recently completed an engagement with a subsidiary of a large multinational company with more than 200,000 employees in over 100 countries across the globe. The objective of the engagement was to find out what the ‘Employees think of the HR Dept’.  In the past AceNgage has worked on several employee engagements initiatives to find out:   1. Why employees quit 2. Why candidates did not inspite of accepting the

What is employee engagement? 2

  • By -

There are a zillion definitions of what employee engagement is and if you type this question on Google you will get about 2,24,00,000 results in about 0.43 seconds. That said, I would still like to add my 2 bits 🙂 In my opinion highly engaged employees have 2 things working for them – the organisation & their manager. Engagement with the Organisation An employee feels that he/she is engaged when

Some lessons I picked along the way 5

As I look back at 2014, I believe that it has been a good year, overall. The political situation is seemingly more stable, stock market is booming, fuel prices are falling and there is a lot of hope among the people I meet. Personally, the last year was a whole lot of fun and there were few things that I picked up. Call them, lessons, best practices or just worldly

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

Before you ‘fire’ them, remember you have ‘hired’ them !! 5

Unlike in the past, we hear of employees being laid off a lot more often these days and rightly so. While it may not and should not be the first option it’s almost always in the best interest of the organization. We are all dependent on our clients and if we lose business it’s natural to ask the employees working on that particular project to leave. In a way they

How difficult is it to be nice? 5

I was travelling by Spice jet recently. Honestly, its not one of my favourite airlines as they have a general reputation of being delayed especially in the Vizag – Bangalore sector. But then, since I didn’t have any choice (there are no other evening flights from Vizag to Bangalore) I was forced to take it . I reached in time to find the girl behind the counter having a fairly
