Employee wants both good in hand salary and other benefits but if company didn’t provide additional benefits then employee focuses more on Net Take Salary while negotiation.
Q: As you are associated with many companies since more than 10 yrs of work experience, are you satisfied with HR department of those companies? Are they able to play the role expected from them?
No, not up to the mark. Because, they also have to follow the orders of management, that’s why they would not be able to satisfy their people.
Q: Do you think that HR is a puppet in hands of management?
Yes, Even if HR makes good policies and welfare schemes for employees they need to take final approval from management. If management is not employee friendly and doesn’t value employees as an asset, HR will not be able to do anything. Hence, I feel that HR is puppet in hands of management.
Q: What is your perspective that HR should give back to their employee?
HR plays an important role in any organization. They should understand needs of their employees. They should appreciate and work of their employees. They should respect their people and not be partial. They should be committed towards their commitments made while hiring an employee.
Q: What you expect from your employer and HR department of your organization?
Management should understand employee’s perspective and their needs. HR is timely payouts in terms of Salary, Bonus and Incentives.
