SOLUTIONS

WE ARE A CATALYST FOR YOUR GROWTH

If you don’t know where you are going, you will likely end up somewhere else – the same is true in business. Unless you have a carefully crafted business strategy, you are essentially flying blind.

We have a four-pronged approach to mitigate this situation –

• Corporate Strategy – design and apply strategies to respond to a constantly changing corporate scenario – via – strategic business plans and analytics.

• Customer Strategy – identify, segregate and align organization’s customer base to match business requirements from the perspective of growth and sustenance.

• Transitional Leadership Strategy – While the marketplace for transition leaders in India is still in a nascent stage, Aavishkaar has a growing database of qualified leaders who can play the role of interim leaders for our clients, particularly in the areas of Human Resource, Finance, Technology &Administration.

• Operational strategy – improve, benchmark and standardize operations by reengineering departmental processes; direct and facilitate day-to-day operations.

We all tend to agree that ‘People’ is our most important asset. Yet, we seldom are proactive in addressing ‘people issues’ and procrastinate until it becomes a ‘pain area’. Besides, most organizations are ill-equipped to deal with these pain areas and often tend to follow unscientific methods just to save a few cents.

Our expert HR Consultants provide tailor-made solutions which fits all organizations types, whether it is a start-up or an established firm. Our HR Consulting Competence includes, but is not limited to –

• Providing thought leadership in HR Strategy
• Build and implement HR Policies and Procedures (SoP’s)
• Design bespoke Performance Management Systems
• Access talent development needs and develop Training Models
• Strategize Talent Retention Programs
• Optimize Compensation, Rewards & Benefits
• Manage Change

Technology in business is a growing necessity; because technology paves way for a new and better approach on how to go about with doing business by streamlining day-to-day activities and optimizing productivity levels.

Our Technology interventions in the Human Resource Domain include –

We continuously work behind the scenes so that organizations can concentrate on their core competency areas, without the need for getting into the nitty-gritty of finding suitable candidates, which is often best left to a specialist.

We have built well-established and active networks across the various industries and verticals. This enables us to source the right talent within a short period of time. Potential candidates are identified and screened by an exclusive and dedicated panel of expert head-hunters to ensure that the candidate’s skills, expectations, interests and goals are in tandem with those of our client organization.

WORKS

SUCCESS STORY TIME

Task: We were commissioned to re-engineer the HR Policy Framework and the Standard operating procedures as a precursor to the automation of HR Systems and Processes.

Our Approach: We started our work by doing a thorough “Current HR Systems”analysis; a study to understand the current practices which were working well and which weren’t; one of the aims of this study was to find out the existing best practices which were working well for them.

Then we did a thorough analysis with respect to the “Policy and Procedure Framework” requirements. Our approach here was to understand its fitment from the “Strategic” and “Operational” perspective and we came out with new set of – Policies, Procedures, Guidelines and Template Documents, which also has been reviewed according to the set timelines as well.

• Tasks and Deliverables Description:

• Conduct a thorough ‘system study’ on their existing systems
• Do a gap-analysis and come out with recommendations

Results Achieved: What we achieved is currently distinct – the Policy Framework and SoP’s that we have reengineered is helping the organization to have a streamlined HR Practice and shall form a solid foundation for automating the HR Systems and Processes at Ajman University.


Task: We were commissioned to set up ‘’HR Practice” for them. When we started couple of years ago, they did not have any HR Practice in place and were functioning in a very ad-hoc manner.

Our Approach: We started our work by doing a thorough “Existing Organizational Practices”analysis; an initial study to understand and unearth their current practices which were working well and which weren’t; one of the aims of this study was to find out the existing best practices which were working well for them. This we extracted by doing a “Culture Audit”.

Then we did a thorough analysis with respect to the “Policy and Procedure Framework” requirements. Our approach here was to understand its fitment from the “Strategic” and “Operational” perspective and we came out with new set of – Policies, Procedures, Guidelines and Template Documents, which also has been reviewed according to the set timelines as well. Currently we have also put in an internal team who is interfacing with us on the policies front.

In all of the other management and business related interventions, we have been appraised by our client on the progress on their growth path in terms of employee numbers and retention & achieving excellent growth in their revenues as well.


Task: We represented ‘Oracle India’ to do the ‘Business Analysis’ for a HR custom built application.

Task: We were asked to design and implement a highly progressive and customized Performance Management System

Our Approach: We started by understanding their existing performance measure mechanism,which was highly subjective and did not really measure performance as it should be measured.

Deliverables: We designed a highly customized performance management system which steers away from a highly subjective performance analysis towards an objective measurement methodology; also brought in the feature to measure performance from two angles – quantity of performance and quality of performance.

• Performance Management Templates – customized for different roles / levels in the organization
• Helped in doing a change management from the existing system to the new one
• Facilitated the client to implement one of the new system

Results Achieved: The results have been astounding where in the employees feel that they know what is expected of them well before hand and since it is also clearly documented this process has brought in a lot of transparency and comfort for the employees

Appraisers / Reviewers acknowledged that they are clearly able to articulate and list out the expectations from their team members and are very comfortable to provide ratings which are now pretty much objective and hence are finding it easier to appraise their team members

Overall, the organization has set themselves to the path of progressive talent management.
