Building Social Business: Indian firms are superior in Talent Management than their global peers

Building Social Business: Indian firms are superior in Talent Management than their global peers | Transforming HR | Scoop.it
Gautam Ghosh summarizes an article that claims that India Companies have a competitive advantage in the way they manage talent and development:

1. For many years public sector undertakings have invested in leadership capability development and their head of HR has historically been a member of the board. Family-owned enterprises have made similar investments and recently transformed HR so it can more effectively support talent building.

2. A well-trained and closely-knit talent fraternity: India’s graduate education system produces top HR leaders from its institutes of management

3. Strong individual commitment to talent development

4. While Indian firms have flexibility to support employees’ feelings and emotions, multinationals are often bound by rules and regulations that prevent the type of empathy and coaching that can support success

5. Indian companies can offer large wealth creation opportunities through stock options or shares.

Like it or not, we're in the grip of a digital Stockholm syndrome

Like it or not, we're in the grip of a digital Stockholm syndrome | Transforming HR | Scoop.it
The funny thing about Facebook is that it is turning our real friends into virtual friends.

This week saw the rise of the "Facebook is a temporary phenomenon' meme. This article had the funniest Headline.

''You can take it with you,'' Facebook says. ''We are your passport to the past, your home away from home, the country where you will always be welcome.''

''What's the catch?'' we ask.

''And it's free,'' they say.

''What's the catch?''

Sometimes a voice whispers in my ear that we can carry it with us everywhere because it amounts to nothing. But what do disembodied voices know?

So this week when I noticed all those undiscovered pictures were set to be tagged, I shrugged and rolled over. Complain? Why should I?

Quit? Never!

Why bother running? You'll never make it past the border
