Avtaar-HR Transformation with theatre

Recall my first corporate job-My first interaction was with the ‘HR’.A young, dynamic person who presented himself as your friend in a new setting. He played the host, the ‘raju’ guide to all new processes, people and systems. The more I was getting acquainted about my single role in marketing; I realized he had multiple roles. From recruitment, administration-‘getting my ID processed’, to appraisals, policies, engaging employee with events-‘traditional day’ and so on. He would occasionally also play ‘the agony aunt’ –lend his ears to grievances, department needs and dynamics. HR would also function as ‘google’ for all organizational people matters.

A Lost Art Found Online

Stamp collecting, ground post and letter writing, together, have had a shifting status in the wake of this meme, or mass idea, of ‘snail mail’. It appears that speed is paramount in today’s communication, not surprisingly.
