This project aims at identifying the current issues and challenges that Human Resources faces, recognizing the level of knowledge required by aspiring HR managers and benchmarking the HR skills and knowledge with the syllabus of XLRI and three other Indian and international programmes.
The objectives of the project are:
1. To identify the issues and challenges HR faces
2. To find out the level of specific knowledge, and skills required for HR managers in making 3. To draw the profile of HR professionals, and
4. To benchmark HR skills and knowledge with HR programmes in India and abroad
A questionnaire containing three parts, designed by Professor Srimannarayana, was administered to the respondents.
Part 1 – 42 HR issues
Part 2 – 63 Knowledge and Skills
Part 3 – General information required to draw the profile of HR professionals
In order to ensure objectivity of the data, the Professor had asked for the questionnaire to be administered on HR professionals with a minimum of two years of experience. Also, we were asked to approach at least two respondents who belonged to the following categories:
a) Manufacturing Organization
b) Senior Management Position
c) Public Sector Undertaking
On obtaining the responses (11 in number), the data was analysed using quantitative and qualitative techniques. Through this process, the most relevant and critical HR issues, skills and knowledge areas were identified.
The shortlisted issues, skills and knowledge were then compared and benchmarked with the syllabus of the two year HR programmes of XLRI and three other Indian and international institutes.
Based on the above comparison, certain suggestions have been made in order to align the course syllabus with the relevant HR issues and skills of the present day industry. The filled in questionnaires have been appended to the report.
