New HR Challenge: Managing Multigenerational Workforce

By Dr. Shelly Ahmed (Star Guest Writer)

Diversity and inclusion have been steadily gaining traction in corporate India in recent years. Much of this is centered on gender diversity, and companies are beginning to realize the business imperative of hiring women and creating an equitable work environment. But there is another aspect that human resource managers in India need to wake up to: The importance of effectively managing a multigenerational workforce.

One may argue that organizations across the world have always had to manage a multigenerational workforce. While that is true, India’s demographics are creating some unique challenges. Even as the world is graying, India is getting younger. By 2020, the average Indian will be only 29 years of age compared with 37 in China and the U.S., 45 in Western Europe and 48 in Japan. Currently, more than half of India’s population is less than 25 years of age.

How 3,00,000 Crore Vanished From 'BSE Reality Index'?

By Pramod Kamle | INNLIVE

INVESTIGATION That great gurgling noise you have been hearing over the last few years is the sound of Rs 3,00,000 crore of investor money in realty shares going down the drain.

Where did the money go? After all, even drains empty out into the sea. In the case of real estate, we know roughly where it went – into the pockets of politicians and their cronies - but cannot quite prove it.

The real estate business is simply not kosher and any commonsense understanding of visible signals can tell you that. For example, as the Sensex is hitting new highs, the BSE Realty Index is barely off its all-time lows.

Shazia Ilmi’s ‘Communal’ Remark Is Not 'Hate Speech' Etall

By M H Ahssan | INNLIVE

ANALYSIS Shazia Ilmi clearly does not get the basic precept of Politics 101 in India. In a heated election cycle, with everyone complaining to the Election Commission at the drop of a Gandhi topi, a politician does not -- make that: should never ever -- play sarcastic semantic games with words like “communal” and “secular”. “Muslims are not communal. They have become too secular. This time they should be communal. They should think for themselves.”
