Increasing relevance of Recruiters-Role for ERA

In an earlier blog, I did hint about this!
'[T]he Hyderabad chapter of Executive Recruiters Association is embarking on some attempts to unravel the mysteries /challenges that the booming Indian industry has been facing- especially in the areas of talent acquisition and management.
ERA Hyderabad is having a series of 'power meetings' involving Business leaders, HR and recruiting fraternity -across industries to deliberate on the 'pain points' each one of them is facing. Concerns emerging out of a weeklong series of such 'industry specific' meetings will be analysed-and it is hoped that ERA shares possible & viable solutions at its National convention on September 5th in Hyderabad! '
Well, as I write -two of the 6 power breakfasts scheduled are over!! We had over 20 business leaders from IT/ITES and the Services track -taking time off-and sharing their concerns. There are already some definite takeaways-and we are are hoping to work on the deliberations!!

Just to give you a glimpse of the seriousness and the expectations of ERA- here is a concern expressed by a leader :
"ERA / ERA members could offer a special niche service to social sector organisations like creating a separate recruitment web site like devnet.org has done, preferential rates for recruitment, linking corporate CSR arms to social sector organisations, offering volunteering and sabbatical opportunities for corporate executives etc."

Over the next week- we have leaders from Pharma, Infrastructure, Manufacturing -and one exclusive for the HR thought leaders across industries- promising to air their views. Should you be aware of any business leaders from Hyderabad who could add value & contribute -do feel free to reach out to me! ([email protected])

PS: The latest issue of the mag Business Outlook- featuring 12 niche businesses- does feature a recruiter, Ms Saundarya Rajesh of Avtar Career Creators , a firm that helps women find work-home balance, by finding part-time work for them!! Well, she is an ERA member!!
