How to incorporate gamification into HR

June 10th, 2015 No comments

From recruiting to training and development, gamification is beginning to take its place in the world of human resources.

Simply put, gamification is the process of incorporating game elements like win-lose psychology, mechanics and fun design into non-gaming contexts, like hiring, training and engaging employees.

It is becoming a big business. A recent report on gamification by Markets and Markets predicted that the gamification industry will grow by 67 percent by 2018 when it will be worth an estimated $5.5 billion. But will it be big business in your business?

More and more gamification is creeping into the world of human resources professionals because of its potential to inspire engaged relationships among employees and its usefulness in behavior modification.

Some examples of gamification in HR include PwC (http://pwc.com) for recruiting new employees to BunchBall (http://bunchball.com) and BadgeVille (http://badgeville.com) to engage and retain employees.

According to a Gallup research project, more than half (51 percent) of employees feel disengaged at work and 17.5 percent are actively disengaged. This is causing a crisis of innovation, creativity and production in the North American workplace. It is little wonder that human resources professionals are eagerly searching for any projects that might help their teams to re-engage with the purpose and objectives of the companies for which they work.

How can you incorporate this trend of gamification into your own human resource practice?

Battling HR complacency

April 4th, 2015 No comments

I spent the last several days attending conference sessions and picking the minds of HR professionals at the HCI Human Capital Summit in Orlando, Florida.

Among the more powerful sessions I witnessed — at least judging from the reaction of the crowd — was one called “The Art of Leadership,” by an artist named Erik Wahl. (It’s not surprising his talk was so popular — this was a guy who, while on stage dispersing words and stories of motivation, painted portraits of innovators Steve Jobs, Bono and Albert Einstein. Take a minute and Google his name; it’s very impressive.)

The thing is, Wahl isn’t in the industry, he was simply someone motivating a room of HR professionals. He did it so well that the crowd enthusiastically gave him a standing ovation.

 His simple but powerful message? Take risks, be creative, try new approaches and do not settle for complacency.

“Complacency is the architect of our future downfall,” he told a crowd of HR professionals. He urged them to think outside the box when considering employee management, how to engage employees and how to best optimize the workforce.

Hiring Top Professionals from India

March 28th, 2014 No comments

Regardless of the economy, the top performing professionals in any given domain are always in demand.  However, considering their capabilities they are mostly employed by some organization and generally are not looking for new opportunities. Hence, to gauge these performers and then to approach them professionally with a new and better job opportunity can only be done by a recruitment agency who has some experience and expertise in the recruitment business.

Every organization wants high performers as they have a better ROI and our self motivated; so they need little attention to help them attain their professional goals and the goals of the organization. Top performers can single handedly achieve more than thrice of a normal performer and in this age of cut throat competition they inevitably are the differentiating factor between the success of an organization.

If high performing professionals are so much in demand that the companies they are associated with do their best to engage with them and retain them so that they perform for them and not their competitors. There are various incentives and perks that are offered to high performing employees of the company to gain their trust and prevent them from leaving an organization. However, monetary benefits are not the only factor that appeals to employees and especially to top professionals. Hence, a recruitment consultant should know a top performing players motivation factors to help him seek better options that matches his ambitions and requirements to that of a potential organization.

With more than 20 Years of experience in recruitment domain we can confidently say that top driving factor that a top performers looks for an organization is the “Confidence in Organization’s Future” and a top performer aligns his professionals goals to that of the organization’s goals if he truly believes in the success of the organization or the work that he is doing. It’s important for a top performer to know his place in the scheme of things and how he/she plays a critical path in the success of the organization.

Top performers, second most important factor to continue to work with an organization is that which supports “work/life balance”. An organization that supports and encourages work/life balance makes it easier for top performers to stay engaged and they are able to perform much better when at work.  There are many ways organizations can balancing these competing demands, for example; work from home when needed; providing accommodation near the office to minimize travel time or offering flexible timings. It’s important for an organization to know what appeals to the top performer and how it can help him/her focused on his/her work.

Another important factor that is important in attracting top performers to international assignments is Safety. Safety is a critical aspect either while working at a construction site or at an office. However, this aspect takes more importance of international placements as one tends to move away from his/her comfort zone provided by being in the native country. Hence, top performers are more confident and engaged while working with an organization that makes safety a priority.

An experienced and talented recruitment consultant can help not only identify top performers in a domain but can also relate to the factors that drive top performers to align their goals with that of an organization that can provide them a better alternative to their existing organization. By doing this, a recruiter is not only helping an organization find the top talent available but is also contributing to the career growth of the employee also by providing him better opportunities to showcase his talent.

If you are an organization looking for top professionals from India then we at MM Enterprises can help you find the right talent for your organization.

Luxury Recruitment Services from India

March 12th, 2014 No comments

Luxury is an intangible as it has no specific line, price, quality or quantity that can define anything to be luxurious. However, like many intangible attributes luxury can be recognized when we experience it just like power and fame. If we dig deeper, we note that though there is no key factor that differentiates luxury apart from the experience which is often more than the sensory experience but also the feeling of class and often power that are associated with the luxury experience. If power, class and prestige are the accompanying attributes of luxury then it is better to keep it rare and within a reach of select few to make the experience more worthwhile and hence you see most luxurious things are for the super rich that can afford to buy these experiences.

 

The surge of luxury industry recruitment is primarily driven currently from Middle East, with Dubai, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait being the leader and followed closely by European countries. The demand is also varied across the countries as Middle East prefers Vintage Cars, designer jewellery and luxury real estate sales recruitment demands whereas European countries prefer hand embroidery, fashion designers and jewellery artists as the recruitment demands from India.

 

With luxury being such a niche and targeted segment, the recruiters who recruit for the luxury industry need to be very stringent in the kind of talent they use to market or sell their product or services. A recruiter should not only at the obvious of experience and qualifications but should also draw upon his/her experience to choose the right candidate to make a successful employee.

 

Some of the industries that are considered to be a part of luxury recruitment segment are, Sales of high end automobiles, Recruitment for Cruise Ships, High end Retail Staffing, Fashion designers, Jewellery designers. There has been a surge in demand for these sector from India, considering the overall quality and diverse manpower options provided by India due to its diversity in population. Further, India itself is in the beginning stages of experiencing the luxury segment that is taking shape in India with easing of Indian market many high end luxury brands opening their shops in India to cater to the growing high net worth individuals whose demand for luxury experience is on the rise which has provided ample opportunity for job seekers to work on these segment to gain the relevant experience.

 

Luxury Recruitment India

 

Further, Luxury recruitment from India is also on the rise considering the English language proficiency among educated Indians is highest and which also comes at an economical price compared to other alternatives from around the world. Having said this, a luxury recruitment agency in India should not only have the past experience in the luxury sector where the recruitment has to be done but also it should be updated with the latest trends in that sector so that it can screen the candidates proficiently. This can be done wither by aligning with the various publications associated with that industry or by attending seminars and shows that are organized for that sector across the world.

Another important aspect that a luxury recruitment services provider in India should bear in mind is the attrition rate in the luxury industry is of utmost importance as any client facing employee main role is building and maintaining client relationships and any sudden or undue attrition is considered to be a bad for the luxury brand image and success.

A successful luxury recruitment company should strive to understand the client’s requirement clearly and objectively so that it can then start the scouting of the right candidate to meet the client’s requirements as luxury is the sector which though cater to a very small segment but it’s still in the mind of a lot many because its looked up for inspiration and awe.
