Retail boom in India-Jobs offered before one joins BSchool!!

In a bid to woo best young talent, HR managers are competing hard and innovatively!!

Some of the tactics in vogue:

-arrangement with some of them to absorb 100% output
-reserving seats for employees wanting to upgrade –and giving sabbatical and promotion to encourage employees
-short term courses for self development

There is a strong need for doing things ever so this fast changing world!

One of our clients –the METRO group hired people for their Hyderabad distribution centre –about 4-6 months ahead of the launch-and sent them to Bangalore for on the job orientation. With people coming in from different industries and cultures, it was very imperative for them to ‘unlearn old habits and learn new practices and best practices”
