Rajorshi Ganguli, CHRO, Alkem Laboratories Pvt. Ltd. is a force to reckon with in the pharma industry. With over 15 years of experience under his belt, he is someone who understands business context with great precision and accuracy. It was our absolute pleasure to have him with us for the 7th episode of our thought leadership series – Dialogue with Darwin. Here are some highlights from the power-packed session where he shared with us his perspective on the rapid and constant change in the talent pool.
Read on to learn about his experience of aligning the entire talent pool to one vision and so much more.
Aligning entire talent pool to one vision:
According to Rajorshi, it is important for HR’s vision and passion to reach the last person on the floor so as to make it fruitful. If communication is missing or flowed, execution cannot happen smoothly. Continuous communication is key. Given that the talent pool is changing rapidly with the influx of millennials, it is now a must for HR to leverage technology to drive its vision.
Takeaways For HRs to tackle the changing talent pool:
Using technology to connect with the millennial workforce by creating platforms of open communication are a must for HR today.
Relooking at the current policies to understand if they are archaic and have lost touch in the current context.
Rewards and recognition framework needs to be revamped. Usage of technology in terms of rewards & recognition is a must. Using continuous feedback can be a good start.
Sensitizing the managers to handle the aspirations of the new, diverse talent pool. The way to handle this workforce cannot be what it was 15 years ago.
View on working in a specific sector:
According to Rajorshi, HR issues remain the same at the core, no matter which industry you go to. However, spending a large part of his career in a specific industry has helped him deep dive and understand the business context better. The 15 years he has invested in the pharma sector are an advantage for him.
Things that have changed about Rajorshi:
He believes that we can’t change everything. “Therefore it’s always better to focus on one thing that gives you maximum result. Also, take people as they are. Know your priorities and get going.”
