I invite you all to watch this special show at India HR LIVE, where we are honored to present words of wisdom from the Founder & Initiator of HRD movement in India, Dr. T V Rao on a special show airing this Tuesday, 27th August, 2013 at 8PM IST / 9.30 AM CT / 10.30 AM EST, where he will be talking about the Future of HR: Opportunities and Challenges.
A new Human Resource Development system emerged in India in 1974 with Dr. T.V. Rao and Dr. Udai Pareek heading the movement. It was started as a “Review Exercise of the Performance Appraisal System” for Larsen & Toubro by the duo from the Indian Institutes of Management, Ahmedabad (IIMA) which resulted in the development of a new function – The Human Resources Development Function.
As they envisioned, the function has evolved from a transactional function to not just merely seen as a business partner but as a business propellant.
HR function has become the integral part of a business and HR professionals help turn aspirations into actions by focusing on talent, culture and leadership in successful organizations. But in some organizations HR is still behind the veil and continue to limit themselves by doing small things and not focusing on long term impact on intellectual capital management.
Now, when it comes to what’s next in HR, it is ideal that we take notes from the person who revolutionized the function as The Human Resources Development Function.
Join us, while we discuss the Future of HR: Opportunities and challenges with Dr. T.V. Rao–
