HEC MBA participant, Jeev Sahoo tells us about a a talk he gave at the Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Paris entitled “India: New Continent for Human Resources?”
“It all started from a networking with a classmate, when Prof Charles-Henri Besseyre des Horts was searching for someone who has spent substantial time in India, in the corporate world. The focus of the event was to introduce HEC Executive education students to knowing more about the recent changes in India, particularly from a CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) and HR perspective.
The best part of the interaction was the contradiction and changing image of India as a country struggling to come-up in the last few years, amongst western developed economies. The audience was very updated about the recent developments in culture, particularly in today’s globalized world with India coming up as a stable society powered by Information Technology, Foreign Direct Investments in products and services, and eradication of not just poverty, but also redundant/avoidable cultural practices, reduction in bribery and uplifting of women, and other underprivileged parts of the society.
The audience was awed by a video that showed the CEO of HCL Technologies repeating the company motto, ‘Employees first, Customer Second’!
