Student of Masters in Human

Indian Institute of Social Welfare
and Business Management have
taken initiative to start e magazine.
The magazine besides unleashing
the creative potential of the
students will help in sharing
knowledge. The magazine will also
provide an interactive forum for the
students of IISWBM and other
Business Schools. I am indeed very
happy for this, being Head, MHRM
and Director, IISWBM.
The economic liberalization has
spurred industrial growth and
brought in fierce competition. The
industrial growth has created
segments of industry, which can be
categorized as sectors.

The market is customer driven. The
customers require products, which
meet their specific needs in terms of
functions, quality, cost and
availability. To produce, sell and
service these specific products,
special skills are needed. In order to
survive and grow, the future
professional managers will have to
be equipped with these special skills.
Those of the management
institutes, which can cope up with,
these special requirements are going
to flourish.
The management institutes will
have to develop students as
professionals. Mere academic
knowledge with the budding
managers is not going to fully serve
the needs of the industry. The
personality of students has to be
transformed into a professional
manager, having ability to survive
the stresses and strain of the
competitive market conditions and
possessing necessary special skills
needed for the specific sector.
This will mean that the students
have to be observed and trained in
campus. The management courses
will have to be residential to enable
the faculty to observe and develop
students as professionals. In order
to cater to the special needs of each
sector, the students may have to
choose the area of specialization
from the day they join the training
in a management institute.
Selling pharmaceutical products is
very different from selling
insurance. Similarly production of
steel is different from operations in
an electronics industry.
The industry has to be a partner of
management institutes in training
of students. In addition, resources
in terms of the faculty with
experience in specific sectors will
have to be provided. This perhaps
will be most difficult to obtain. In
the absence of adequate in house
resources, the institutes will have to
depend on outside help. Persons
with suitable experience in the
industry, and penchant for teaching
may be able to establish educational
consultancy companies to cater to
such needs.
A new system of education is fast
emerging in which the institutions
partner other management
institutes for mutual help through
online teaching. A large number of
colleges catering to distance

education already exist. Many of
them have specialized resources in
some areas. These institutes have
already perfected distance
education. Their help in selected
areas ‘on line’ will be needed more
and more. The systems like
education through video




conferencing and virtual classrooms
in the required areas may have to be
introduced.
The e magazine, which is being
launched, should be able to meet
some of these emerging needs in
management education. I see a
bright future for this magazine. I
congratulate the students for taking
this initiative. I wish them success in
their endeavour.

The recent accounting fraud at Satyam
Computers Ltd, one of the top five IT
companies of India, has raised several
questions on corporate ethics and
accountability, the Role of Regulators in
Corporate Governance and also the age old
issue of privatizing profits and socializing privatizing profits and socializing privatizing profits and socializing privatizing profits and socializing
losses. losses. losses. losses. And it is very much evident from the
fact that corporate India and their sponsors in
the Government are trying to project this
fiasco more as an aberration rather than a
deliberate act. There is a noticeable reluctance
to acknowledge and address, the systemic
issues involved both on the part of
government as well as the judiciary although
SEBI is now trying to probe insider trading
charges against the Satyam Board members.
Since the period of liberalization, Indian
corporate, backed by the Government have
tried to emulate the American financial and
corporate governance systems by making the
economic activities more liberated and
curbing the scope of vigilance. One of those
drawbacks of liberalized capital markets is that
it leads to an obsession with the stock market
valuation of firms. The problem gets
compounded when the firms feels the
pressures to make huge sums of money in a
very short period, through speculative capital
gains rather than real value addition. As a
result of this prevalent trend, the American
system has been badly exposed in the recent
sub-prime meltdown and the consequent
bankruptcies of leading financial entities. But
as we all know the Federal government came
to the rescue of these big shots sighting
socio-economic reasons. Frankly this is quite
a familiar scenario all over the world and India
is no exception in this regard.
The same thing happened with Satyam, the
manipulation of accounts was going on for
years in innumerable ways basically to inflate
the firm’s profits in order to gain from higher
stock prices and market capitalization. And
through this Ramalinga Raju had made huge
capital gains in the stock market and also
being an IT company enjoyed an almost zero

10


tax regime and also floated real estate
ventures like Maytas, which was again heavily
rewarded with land and lucrative contracts by
the Andhra Pradesh Government. So beyond
any sort of reasonable doubt it can be stated
that Satyam has made maximum utilization
of its corporate image and status to maximize
profits. And during this entire time whilst
Satyam was busy making unfair profits it did
every possible thing to evade its social
responsibilities. But sadly the government
cannot escape its social responsibilities or in
such cases we can say it has to bear the losses
created by the private sector.
.
But in this case the Government's decision to
defer the bail-out package for Satyam is
unquestionably appropriate as bailing out
Satyam by using tax payers’ money, would
amount to yet another squalid instance of
socializing private sector losses. Apparently, it
has recognized the fact that considering
financial help for a hoaxer is not a social,
economic or ethical option. More so, when it



recognizes the failure of different government
mechanisms such as auditors, regulators and
banks. But at the same time to address the
interests of more than 50000 employees of
Satyam and save the global reputation of
“Brand India”, the government has to ensure
that the enterprise continues to function
viably so that the jobs and salaries stay
protected.
The Satyam incidence is not a stray incidence
at all, majority of the companies indulge in
such practices to a variable extent. A private
sector company adhering to unethical
standards and drawing off public money to
serve personal ends of its promoters and CEO
does not deserve any pity or leniency. And
the bail-out of Satyam would only fuel the
issue of privatization of profit and
socialization of losses. But let’s face it
‘maximizing profits in minimum time’ is the
name of the game in the era of capitalism and
LPG. So without moving away from today’s
paradigm of liberalized markets “liberalization
with regulation” is the need of the hour.

Walter Landor, one of the greats of
the advertising industry, said:

More rightly put A brand is a A brand is a A brand is a A brand is a

mind of the consumer mind of the consumer mind of the consumer mind of the consumer
Most people have a general
understanding of brands, which are
omnipresent1 in this commercial,
market-driven society in which we
find ourselves. An important aspect
of brands is that they are abstract.



Think about the following brands.
What abstract quality does each
invoke for you?
N NN Nike ike ike ike, , , , Pepsi Pepsi Pepsi Pepsi, , , , Starbuck Starbuck Starbuck Starbucks ss s, , , , Volvo Volvo Volvo Volvo
If you are like most consumers,
each of these brands has an
identifiable personality. The goal of
the Pepsi brand is to ensure that
your mental construct of Pepsi is
not about colored sugar water; it is
about re-establishing your
connection with your youth
whenever you drink a Pepsi. Volvo
makes cars, but what they really
provide is safe transportation for
you and your loved ones. Nike
markets sneakers, but in actuality
identifies the inner athlete, the

12


talented, confident, successful
competitor lurking inside. Starbucks
sells coffee, but what each Starbucks
cafe represents is a warm,
comfortable gathering place. The
marketing theory is that by
associating these abstract, highly
compelling qualities that consumers
desire with specific products, those
consumers are more likely to
purchase those products, and to
derive pleasure, and thus value,
from those products, far beyond
their utilitarian benefits.
Personal Branding Personal Branding Personal Branding Personal Branding
“When Tom Peters first wrote “When Tom Peters first wrote “When Tom Peters first wrote “When Tom Peters first wrote
about Brand You, it was cool. Now about Brand You, it was cool. Now about Brand You, it was cool. Now about Brand You, it was cool. Now

Personal Branding is the art of
attracting and keeping more clients
by actively shaping public
perception..





External brand External brand External brand External brand
The external brand is how one
projects oneself to the world. There
is an element of choice here. One
can decide what to say or write in
order to convey a certain image.
One’s projected image will influence
what others think of him and how
they might choose to interact with
him. One may stumble upon this
image accidentally,
or one can deliberately target a
specific type of image.
I think the best external image to
project is the one you believe best
reflects who you really are. Being Being Being Being
oneself simply means being honest. oneself simply means being honest. oneself simply means being honest. oneself simply means being honest.
Paying attention to one’s external
image needn’t become an ego trip.
Really it’s just the opposite.
Becoming aware of how others see
one helps one identify blind spots
within oneself. Then one can work
on those blind spots to help one
become more internally congruent.
Internal brand Internal brand Internal brand Internal brand
In addition to one’s external brand,
which is how most people think
about personal branding, one also
have an internal brand. This is what
one thinks of oneself.

I believe there are three areas you
need to focus on when assembling
your "BrandYou" strategy
(1) Develop your brand. (2)
Package your brand. (3)
Communicate your brand

(1) (1) (1) (1)D DD Developing your brand eveloping your brand eveloping your brand eveloping your brand
During the development of
"BrandYou" one needs to ask
oneself some basic
questions. For example: What
are my values? What do i love?
What do i hate?
What am I insanely great at
doing? What am I most proud
of?
What do I want to be? What is
important and valuable to me?
What do i want to be known
for? Basic, fundamental
questions, yes. And yet,
sometimes these are the most
difficult to answer. But they
must be answered and must be
true.

The three pillars of a good brand
are authenticity, consistency,
and clarity. This holds true for
ones personal brand as well. One
uses these three pillars as one’s
guide when evaluating one’s
brand. By delving deep into
oneself during this process and
working hard to define who one
is and
what one stands for, one’s brand
message will become clear. It will
be clear to others
precisely because it is clear to
him. A clear message is a
message people can trust.
Personal brands do evolve
overtime somewhat, but they
remain essentially consistent at
the core.

(2) Packaging your brand (2) Packaging your brand (2) Packaging your brand (2) Packaging your brand
Companies spend tons of
money on the packaging of their
goods and services. Why? After
all, it is the actual product or
service that is important; the
packaging is superfluous, right?
Wrong. Like it or not, superficial
or not, people judge products
(and people too) based in part
on appearances. First
impressions, as we have all been
told, are huge. Packaging for a
new shampoo or an iPod Mini
certainly makes sense. We can
understand that. A package for a
physical product has to attract,
inform, and persuade the
customer to buy. But the
packages of a brand — even a
physical product — is much
more than the wrapper

Absolutely true. No matter what
your "thing" is — engineer,

Literature professor, whatever!
— standing on the merits of
your great work alone is not
(usually) enough. People have
got to know about you and
your great work. They have got
to meet you, see you. If you
want people to talk about the
wonderful things you do, then
you must give them the
opportunity to experience you.
This means attending
networking meetings (both
social and professional) and
getting involved in external
organizations in your field. But
do not limit your involvement
only to organizations in your
direct field. Some of the best
contacts may come from quite
unexpected places, but you will
never know unless you get out
there and mix it up.

Personal branding may have been a
cool idea in the '90s when Tom
Peters first wrote the article for Fast
Company. Today, personal branding
is essential. The market place is
crowded and the labour market as
competitive as ever. To make your
mark and rise above the noise, you
need to have a clear idea what
you're all about and what you have
to offer (and to whom). What
makes you different? What do you
have to offer that is demonstrably
different, better, cooler? Dig deep
inside yourself and find out. Once
you have your message down, clear
and concise, make the opportunities
to tell your little piece of the world
what you're all about and how you
can help.

HR: A Strategic Partner or Strategic HR: A Strategic Partner or Strategic HR: A Strategic Partner or Strategic HR: A Strategic Partner or Strategic
HRM. HRM. HRM. HRM.
What is HRM(Human Resource HRM(Human Resource HRM(Human Resource HRM(Human Resource
Management) Management) Management) Management)?
HRM HRM HRM HRM is a management function
that recruits, selects, trains, develop
and maintains people for an
organization. Thus it is a holistic
approach towards management of
people working in an organization
who contribute to the achievement
of organizational objectives.
SHRM(Strategic Human Resource SHRM(Strategic Human Resource SHRM(Strategic Human Resource SHRM(Strategic Human Resource
Management): Management): Management): Management): Wright and Mc
Mahan (1992) defined SHRM as ‘the
pattern of planned human resource
deployment and activities intended
to enable the firm to achieve its
goals’.
Thus in simple terms it’s the
organization’s intentions or plans
of achieving the goal or objective of
an organization through its people
i.e it is concerned with those issues
and practices relating to the people
(Human Resource) that affect or
are affected by the strategic plan of
the organization.
How is HR a strategic partner strategic partner strategic partner strategic partner?
HRM proponents and executives
have empathized over the years that
HR acts as a strategic partner to the
organization. But questions like
how is it a strategic partner? How is how is it a strategic partner? How is how is it a strategic partner? How is how is it a strategic partner? How is
it measured? it measured? it measured? it measured? often intrigue the
students as well the organizations
alike. Many firms believe or have
the notion that good human
resource management practices
helps in building the “core
competencies” of the organization
which in long run acts as a
competitive advantage but they
struggle to identify and quantify
the effects of these practices on the
strategic initiatives of the firms.



16

To resolve such problems and
answer the above questions several
organizations have adopted various
measures such as:-
1. Deloitte developed the
Human Capital Management
Value man (HCMVM HCMVM HCMVM HCMVM) to
demonstrate the contribution
of HR initiatives towards
shareholders value and helps
management prioritize and
align their HR investments
with company’s overall
strategic objective.
Some firms use Cash Flow per
Employee (CFPE CFPE CFPE CFPE), instead of
profits as a measure
of firm’s success because it
directs the attention of the
management to HR of the firm
and its strategic role.








Cash flow per employee =>(Cash
flow / number of employees) /
(total investment / number of
employees) = (Cash flow /
capital invested)
CFPE shows the average
contribution an employee has to
make in relation invested by the
shareholders.
2. HR scorecard HR scorecard HR scorecard HR scorecard : HR audit in
conducted, it assess HR
competencies, culture,
business linkage and assigns a
score to each of these.
3. 3. 3. 3. Benchmarking Benchmarking Benchmarking Benchmarking: In this
method comparison is made
on basis of selected HR
performances indicators of
organizations in the same
industry so that the firm
knows how well its HR
practices compare with the
“best” practices in other
successful organizations.

4. 4. 4. 4.Business Excellence Model Business Excellence Model Business Excellence Model Business Excellence Model
(BEM) (BEM) (BEM) (BEM): In this method all the
areas for business success are
covered which serves as a blue
print for total organization’s
performance. It is adopted by the
Tatas and is named as Tata
Business Excellence Model
(TBEM).


17



Thus we can say that HR acts as a
strategic partner of a firm in
attaining competitive advantage
because a firm can adopt a new
technology available in the
market, can imitate the work-life


practices of another firm but it
cannot imitate an employee’s
sense of belongingness and
his/her commitment and loyalty
towards an organization.

You win some you lose some....... You win some you lose some....... You win some you lose some....... You win some you lose some.......
Merely a factor, you can’t say
Facets so many, you cannot essay;
Dynamic and turbulent you got to admit,

Yet Byzantine so much you hate to explore;

Managing it is an art that deserves to be studied,
It has to be understood, observed and examined;

Controlling it is a science that requires finesse,
With perseverance and patience develops expertise;

‘Human’ is the element that bodies this rhyme,
In dealing with it, you win some and you lose some, every time....

The MHRM department campus is a mix of technology & harmonious
academic environment at its best. Class rooms equipped with A/V facilities,
WI-FI all round, cooperative and highly qualified faculty members, well
stocked library and all other facilities needed for a proper academic
environment. The campus is always abuzz with life, academic and co-curricular
activities that take place regularly under supervision of the distinguished
faculty members.
This year has been a memorable one in terms of the events that have taken
place. July was marked off by a splendid welcome to the 2008-10 batch of
MHRM department where the new entrants introduced themselves to their
seniors and the faculty members and got acquainted with them. This was
followed by a fresher’s party for the 2008-10 batch in August, where different
