Paras Healthcare participated as the ‘Healthcare Sponsor’ in the 36th Hindustan Times Shine HR Conclave, held in Gurgaon on Dec 17, 2015. The event included the participation of senior human resource professionals from various industries who discussed on the recent challenges and aspects that industries and HR professionals are facing. The seasoned professionals shared their experiences on change management, performance appraisal and manpower retention. Many also stressed on the employable manpower gap that each industry is facing. Special notification was also made on the healthcare industry where challenges such as – unavailability of manpower, employee retention, employee engagement, appraisal and training are aspects that the human resource department has to battle.
The summit laid special focus on the prevailing Performance Appraisal System – whether the same is applicable or re-engineering of the same is required? Industry specific employment appraisal models were also suggested and suggestions on discarding the present prevailing annual system of appraisal were also proposed. The industry experts discussed the introduction of quarterly reviews, feedback and training to develop the skills of the manpower.
According to Mr Vikas Chawla, AGM, Human Resource, Paras Hospitals, Gurgaon, “Such events are essential to understand the cross–industry benchmarking. We should be open to all suggestions and ideas. Human resource development is an evolutionary process, which also includes the processes of various industries. The HR system in healthcare is also primitive and uses the experiences and learnings of successful models to achieve their goals. This Summit highlighted the paradigm shift that is happening in India. The HR is evolving into a employee engagement, retention and training domain instead of having just a pro- organizational approach. It is essential to maintain a balance. Paras Healthcare is a growing healthcare provider with an exceptional manpower of reputed doctors, nurses and medical professionals. We aim to incorporate the best to make Paras the best healthcare player to work with.”
