This has been a rather quiet year. No crazy CEO saying something audacious, no groundbreaking/ gossip-worthy HR breakthroughs nor any organization doing anything questionable (OK – this may not be true). Either the world of HR has gone quiet or I am revolving outside the loop. I would like to believe it is the former. … Continue reading Nothing new under the sun
I recently wrote a post on ‘5 YEARS LATER: WHAT WILL HR LOOK LIKE?’ At the time of review with my editor, he referred to a recent round table where one of the speakers had commented, "We are always speaking about the next 5 years...but how about the next 20 years; no-one is speaking about … Continue reading The danger of looking too far ahead
This entire week, I have been entering work at 8am, one of the consequences of the ‘wake up before 6am’ challenge. The early hour is nothing short of magical - the floor is still empty, my colleagues from halfway across the world have stopped sending emails and the ones here are yet to begin. I … Continue reading 31-day challenge: Sacred Hour
I am a big fan of experience. I think it holds innumerable lessons and deserves to be chased after like a thief in the dark.

One could fit in a variety of experiences into a single year and another could live … Continue reading Too little experience
The first 90 days are crucial to your career. Those who ace it live an easier life that those who are left making up for time lost. Start strong.
Logic dictates that if the definition of an HRBP varies across organizations, the measures of success would too.

However, I suspect it can cut across most HRBP roles and maybe for all for of HR too. … Continue reading How to: Measure success of an HRBP
The past two months have slipped between my fingers. I realized I had been doing the exact thing I advise everyone not to do. I had let work take over my life.
February has been crazy busy and that is an understatement. I keep thinking that the next day will be better and it ends up being just as busy. Now I have just pinned my hope on March. Almost everyone who has crossed paths with me this month, has heard me say – “March will be … Continue reading Day in the life of an HRBP #1
I spend a tragic amount of time browsing through videos on YouTube. I am on a constant quest to cut down the hours (yes, hours) I spend with my eyes glues to the screen with absolute zero takeaways. Which is why, I love videos that actually deliver real value to the viewer. Even better if … Continue reading #Influence Greatness
That is a question we would all like the answer to, wouldn’t we? I tip my hat to the person who coined this term. While Dave Ulrich popularized ‘HR Business Partners’ in the 1990s, I am not entirely sure where it first originated. Whoever did come up with the term, without doubt, takes the Oscar … Continue reading What does an HR Business Partner (HRBP) do?
