A success story of networking, learning and Development



Last weekend,  I had been to NMIMS, One of the India's top 10 B schools and was with other friends in OB (Organisation Behaviour) class. It was a great learning and too interactive and learnable. 
After spending almost a decade in HR, the subject was not new for me, but learning was great. 
Well, during the discussion topic emerged that an effective manager spends 40% 9f its time in networking and thats very essential.

No doubt. Networking is essential to learn, to showcase your talent, to enhance your creativity, to build a rapport and to have credible pool of people in your contacts who can vouch for you when needed. I could not stop mentioning MTHR Global (More than HR Global ) and HR Shapers.
HR Shapers is truly an example how a tool like whatsapp can be used to optimally use a distracting technology actually for networking and learning and development purpose.
Let me tell you more details about it.

What is HR Shapers ?
HR Shapers is a brain child and a great initiative of Ashish Gakrey who is also an HR professional associated with Capgemini. He is also core founder member of MTHR Global. It has more than 500 HR professionals (all industry / corporate HR and there is no recruitment consultant or any HR consultant). They are from mid to senior level across various verticals and various organisation. Hatsoff to Ashish. 


What HR Shapers do?
HR Shapers chose a topic everyday and all member discuss, brainstorms, put their ideas forward. HR is a vast field and many people do not handle entire gamuts of HR. This platform provides them enough opportunity to learn, free of cost. 

What had been success story?
Started with just around 50 members, it has grown more than 10 folds and yes, everybody is not accepted as a member. People are given enough opportunity to participate and if found they are not active and not contributing, they are removed.

How is it helping in the networking?
A lot. I know many of the people and learn from them. I never met them (except Ashish), but we know each other. Apart from that, regular lunch, dinner organised (of course at your own cost) at different location in India, middle east, Canada and it gives people to meet, collaborate and understand each other beyond the virtual world. It also invited eminent speakers from diverse HR background and who are specialist in their field.



What had been past programme of HR Shapers
Various
It was
1. Mehul Kuwadia- Psychometric Assessment
2. How to conduct a whasapinar
3. Dharmedra Rai- Invisible selling
4. Sexual Harasment
5. Labour Laws
