Seminar On “Recent Trends In HRM” by Dr Suvendu Das
A seminar on ”Recent Trends in HRM” was held on 12th Sept 2019 from 3:00 p.m.- 5:00 p.m. in RCM premises as part of HR Club Activity for Management students. The Chief Speaker Dr. Suvendu Das, Managing Director, Hiteisee Consulting Services, gave a detailed presentation with insight into the recent developments in HRM and the required skill set for a job profile in the field of HRM. He emphasized that students must understand the need to keep updating their knowledge skills if they want to crack a job interview at the first go. He spoke about the necessary attributes a candidate should have to grab the opportunity by creating a good impression on the recruiters. This is because the biggest challenge lies in the question ‘Why should a company hire you?’
Mr Das elaborated the difference between hard skills and soft skills to be possessed and their importance in the job selection criteria. He explained that acquiring hard skills which involves knowledge and training about hardware and software can be easy but acquiring the required set of soft skills for job selection is a bigger challenge. This is because if we do not change our mind set in order to adapt ourselves to face the upcoming challenges, it is difficult to survive in today’s competitive world. So we should always follow the principle of ‘Survival of the fittest’ and groom ourselves accordingly.
Overall the Seminar was very productive in allowing students to be aware of current practices in HRM as well as providing them with a set of guidelines to be followed if they are hungry for success.
