The power of acknowledgement

images

There were days when people used to send letter by registered post to make sure it reaches the destination. To get the confirmation for the delivery, a white colour tag was generally attached to the registered letter. The tag termed as ‘acknowledgement card’ was the proof of delivery of the letter to the receiver and the sender used to wait for the acknowledgement to come back to him. Most of the letters especially those sent to government offices were tagged with this card as people feared that the department or the people concerned may misplace or ignore the post.

The topic surely attracts attention as to what the article contains? But this article is not about the differently-abled people occupying the top posts, it is about the CEOs and the chairmen who are handicapped. However, they may be handicapped because of their character or their personality traits or due to internal or external compulsions, whatsoever. This is applicable to all companies/ parties/ ministries/ institutions etc. This is the reason why these entities at some point of time feel the kickbacks due to their disabilities. Here are some of the types: Continue reading

A cashless day out

Like others, I also thought that the life without cash would be hell. Seeing the queue outside the banks and the horrifying deaths of many people in the queue had made the thinking environment quite conservative. So I thought let me have a day our without cash and see, how much troubles are there on the path of cashless life? Though living in a city like Bangalore, one may not have much of the trouble with his daily chores without cash, I thought it was worth trying the outing with family in this politically biased atmosphere.

The rich and the powerful – 1

money

I was reading the news of someone becoming the richest person in the world, someone becoming the most powerful person in the world. I wondered what exactly that mean? I was not even convinced on the parameters by which they were considered rich or the powerful. We treat God, the Almighty, not because He keeps acquiring the wealth or the power. It is because He has the power to give, the power to protect, the power to make things happen. Continue reading

Resignation? – take it easy

A resignation is a paper submitted by the employee to the employer that says, ‘You are not fit for me’. The reasons behind the move may vary, the text may be different, but the message is common, I quit!

In between lays the job satisfaction which has few other parameters associated with it that vary from person to person. So, are the resignations a sticky affair? Continue reading

The pay cheque circus

presentation1Though theoretically the salaried class strives for job satisfaction throughout its career, the candid fact is that it is the pay cheque that plays the pivotal role in deciding the job engagement and its future. Orthodox organizations design their pay slabs and fit in the talent according to their capabilities and experience however professional companies hire the talent and fix the salaries according to the competence levels of the hired personnel. It is always strategically mentioned that, ‘Sky is the limit’ for an extra ordinary candidates and the remuneration shall be best among the industries. This clearly reveals the acknowledged adhesiveness of a pay cheque between an employee and the organization. Continue reading

The power of EXIT INTERVIEWS

exitThe exit interviews are a powerful tool for the company to assess itself for the type of work environment it provides to the employees from the employees point of view, its policies, financial and personal benefits etc. which are the key ingredients of the popular term referred to as the employee satisfaction. They are the mirrors to an organisation provided they are conducted with the positive spirit and the results compiled and projected to the higher or the top management. These unbiased inputs can decide the fate of the organisation and if taken casually will take away the opportunity of being ready for the threat perception that exists, if any. Continue reading
