The HRM function has gained critical significance in today’s corporate world, more so in the IT and ITES Sector. This fact was emphasized by Ms. Angelyn Jayaseelan, Associate General Manager-HR at Hexaware Technologies, who shared her rich experience and some latest developments in the HR field with us. An expert in the HR field, Ms Angelyn has worked with a variety of companies such as S&S Power Switchgear Limited, Ford India and iNautix Technologies, before joining Hexaware. She beautifully connected the various HR functions with the practices at Hexaware and highlighted some of the innovative initiatives adopted by their company. Using the famous “Hare & Tortoise Story” she reiterated the importance of team work, especially in today’s corporate scenario. We were enlightened on recruitment through Assessment Centers, the various feedback and appraisal mechanisms and competency mapping- the latest developments in the HR field. The one hour interaction with her and the Q&A that followed left us motivated and inspired to reach to greater heights in our careers.
