Report on Parivartan The Slum Education Programme


1st September, 2013 activity of Parivartan, a CSR initiative of the Institute of Technology and Science, Mohan Nagar, Ghaziabad, aroused a sense of fearlessness and courage among the slum children of Vasundhara, Ghaziabad. The slum class started with the English names of fruits, flowers, vegetables and related briefings. This was followed by the names and identification of different colours. PGDM students volunteers did this activity quite interestingly. They showed the children colour boxes in the book and asked them to identify the same colour in the dresses of themselves. Sonia Tuteja, a senior batch PGDM volunteer held the leaves and stem of a tree and asked the stu-

dents to name the colour. In the last session of the days activity, the slum children learnt a new and
popular poem Veer tum badhe chalo, dheer tum badhe chalo. Saamne pahaad ho, singh ki dahaad ho, tum nidar daro nahi, tum nidar dato vahi. The one who could repeat accurately won a glow-ball with a bulb inside. At the end of the class, biscuits and chocolates were distributed among the children around 100 in number. Volunteers for the day included PGDM first year students Shipra Rai, Nitin Srivastava, Vaibhav Gangwar, Ravi Prasad, Kanchan Srivastava, and Pallav Prakash who were led and directed by faculty coordinator Prof. Gopal Krishna Dwivedi.

The two day National HR Conference - Responsive HR started on 20th September, 2013 with the inaugural address by Director General Dr. A. K. Puri in which he said that in his more than 37 years of working experience, one thing has been very common and obvious that people (superiors, subordinates and peers) are to be helped and taken care of for increasing their output and efficiency. That

is the job of HR, no matter with what name we address it. With this interesting and easy to understand proposition, the first day of the conference commenced that was scheduled for the paper presentation by the students in which total 9 teams presented their quality papers. The second day of the conference i.e. 21st September, 2013, was scheduled for two technical sessions and one panel discussion in which experts from top industries shared their work -secrets, experiences, foresights and future strategies with the audience and participants. In the inaugural session of the second day of the conference, the Chief Guest Mr. R. P. Singh, Director HR & Legal, IFFCO, appealed for bridging the employability gap and advised exercises to keep the body and mind fit for bearing the work pressure. He emphasized that an efficient HR professional should know how to emotionally satisfy the employee and the employer both. Keynote speaker Mr. Pankaj Bansal quite interestingly elaborated world -wide opportunities and challenges before the HR professionals today. He said that there are 30 HR companies listed in US

but in India there is none. He gave an interesting and farsighted mantra to future managers Never
under-estimate yourself in long term and never overestimate yourself in short term and advised sincerity, hard-work and attachment with the job. The inaugural session was followed by technical sessions 1 and 2, in which senior HR professionals from top industries discussed the current HR scenario and different HR functions with an emphasis on traditional and service functions of HR.

The topic of technical session 1 was Current Scenario of HR that was beautifully carried forward by Ms. Harpreet Dutta, Executive Director & Chief People Officer, ABC Consultant, who addressed the participants in an interesting and interactive way. Starting with the questions on the basic functions of HR, she discussed total quality management and said that an HR professional should definitely meet the self-expectations. Mr. Manish Srivastava, Director, Emserve, raised a question Is your EVP equal to CVP? where EVP stands for Employee Value Proposition and CVP stands for Customer Value Proposition. He concluded that customer and employee both are important for any organization therefore the employee should have a feeling that the HR department of the company is responsive to them. Mr. N. C. Sharma, Head -HR, Country Inn, was another appreciated speaker of the first technical session who started with the primary functions of HR and said that the way your employee feels is the way your customer feels. He strongly supported the views of Mr. Manish Srivastava, his co-speaker. The second technical session commenced after the lunch. The topic of this session was Difference

in HR functions: Traditional v/s Services. Mr. Rup Kumar Sengupta, Director HR, PSI started the
session with the comparison of traditional and service functions of HR and forecasted future expectations from HR. He advised tactical and proactive approach in all actions with the focus on need. Second speaker of the second session was Mr. K. R. Kaushik, Head External Affairs, Gujrat Fertilizers, who initiated his address with the question if human is a resource or the controller of resources. He, after comparing traditional and service functions of HR, discussed the role of HR as facilitator in service sector. He advised no discrimination among employees saying discrimination brings disasters. The two day National conference came close to the conclusion with the panel discussion on the Nature of HR Function in 2020, which was intelligently and interestingly moderated by the area chair Dr. P.U.B. Rao. The speakers in the panel included Prof. R. P. Ojha, IMI, Delhi; Dr. Subhash Masters, Advisor, Human Capital and Dr. M. S. Rau, Executive Director, ISTD. Moderator Dr. P.U.B. Rao started the discussion with the expected nature of HR function in 2020.

He broadly pointed out that future will have more corporate psychologists but the basic functions of
HR will remain same. He gave an interesting example of cars saying that we have sophisticated cars today but whether new or old, all cars have a steering, four wheels and a windscreen etc. The proposition put forth by Prof. Rao was followed by Prof. R. P. Ojha who forecasted that in future HR functions will shrink but opportunities will increase. He gave an example of emails which were warmly welcomed years back but are now considered as outdated because people now want instant response devices. Similarly, HR functions will also change and we need to prepare ourselves. Dr. Subhash Masters started with a relieving line that whatever may be the name but HR functions will always be there. He emphasized the need to understand the business models especially the beneficial ones. Dr. M.S. Rau shared his views starting with an interesting note that everyone should have some extent of HR in oneself. He expressed his disappointment for just fire-fighting contemporary functions of HR instead of post-mortems i.e. analysis of cause and consequences. He appealed for redesigning HR functions and refocus on customer satisfaction. This successful panel discussion not only presented eye-opening facts before the participants but also gave them a chance to get their queries and apprehensions answered by the experts.
