Human Resources Consulting Practice
The manpower resources in an entity is rightly characterized as the single most valuable asset that holds the key to either make, or break, the brands they represent. Attracting and retaining quality people and motivating them to peak performance, are now the buzz words in corporate boardrooms and corridors as every organization competes for scarce talent. Regardless of size, spread, nature of business and geographical location, investment in human capital, is by far the most promising and rewarding avenue for modern day entrepreneurs. Companies are faced with the daunting task of adopting a harmonious approach to people management on a global basis while respecting domestic and regional sensitivities. Acquisitions, mergers, demergers and other forms of corporate restructuring and privatization inject new imperatives in human resource management prompted by the need for relocation and the shifting and creation of new job responsibilities.
