Some People Create a Mark


Human Resource at Cogzidel has always been a challenge… First four HR concentrated more on recruitment and was not up to expectation… Faced many challenges with them like;

– They were too much aligned towards management or with the employees…
– They failed to carry management point to employee and didn’t carry employees grievances to management…
– Were not aggressive or innovative when it came to recruitment…
– Some misused power and became abusive…
– Didn’t understand the expectations of the role…

After failing four times we moved our SEO as HR…To my surprise he understood the dynamics of HR… He managed well between management and employees… He helped solve lot of challenges… Most important thing was he successfully executed things said by his superior… He was with us for year and half… As an HR he served for 7 months…

He called me on 2nd Jan and I thought he has called me to wish for the new year… As expected he wished me and slowly came to the topic… He said he was planning to quit… Without me asking he said he is planning to go abroad and he has taken a call… He said he can give notice as we expected…

All we told him is to give 45 day notice, find a replacement, train him and give Knowledge Transfer… He never shows the exit mood and he worked with same enthusiasm… He fulfilled all our expectations…

Yesterday was his last day and I couldn’t believe we are going to miss him…

I’ve never blogged about the relieving of many core people who had a descent exit… But this guy deserved more and he will always have a special place in our heart and Cogzidel… He has set a new benchmark for the role and for his successor…

I take this opportunity to wish Mr.Senthil Ganesh best luck for a successful career and future….

Power of Friends Network & Technology


There were several openings which were getting delayed… Particularly Admin Assistant profile was very challenging because we were trying to close this opening for 3+ months now… Over a point our Admin Manager was getting too busy with work and he was often overloaded with work… it was time that we had to find an assistant for him to work effectively…

When I was thinking on the reason for slow progress on all opening I wanted to try different process to;

  • Close the openings for smooth functioning…
  • Create a methodology for HR – Recruitment Process…

Of that I wanted to try the power of networking and I tried posting it on FaceBook, Blog and other social networking forums… Unfortunately I didn’t get the response and later I found our the reason that my posts got buried under numerous messages that gets listed on the wall…

The I wanted to give a try by sending an SMS to all friends about the requirement… With the help BlackBerry I was able to shoot (SMS) the content to all my friends… Also I did this around 3 AM when I was about to crash… To my surprise when I got up in the morning i already got 3 reference from my friends… Also in the subsequent days I started getting calls from a lot of people…

I must thank my friends because they forwarded the message to their friend list even if they didn’t have any reference… Finally we closed the long pending requirement for Admin Assistant…

So here is the SMS text sent to my friends;

Office Humor


After 2 years of selfless service, a man realized that he has not been promoted, no transfer, no salary increment, no commendation. So he decided to walk up to his HR Manager. His manager looked at him, smiled and asked him to sit down saying:

 “My friend you have not worked here for even a single day.” The man was surprised to hear this, but the manager went on to explain.. 

Manager: How many days are there in a year? 

Man: 365 days and sometimes 366. 

Manager: How many hours make up a day? 

Man: 24 Hours. 

Manager: How long do u work in a day? 

Man: 10am to 6pm i.e 8 hours a day. 

Manager: So, what fraction of the day do u work in hours? 

Man: He did some arithmetic and said 8/24 i.e 1/3 (one third).

Manager: This is nice of u! what is 1/3rd of 366 days? 

Man: 122(1/3 x 366=122 in days) 

Manager: Do u come to work on weekends? 

Man: No sir. 

Manager: How many days r there in a year that r weekends? 

Man: 52 Saturdays and 52 Sundays equals to 104 days. 

Manager: Thanks for that. If u remove 104 days from 122 days. How many days do u now have? 

Man: 18 days. 

Manager: I do give u 2 weeks sick leave every year. Now remove that 14 days from the 18 days left.. How many days do u have remaining? 

Man: 4 days. 

Manager: Do u work on Republic Day? 

Man: No sir! 

Manager: Do u come to work on Independence Day? 

Man: No sir! 

Manager: So how many days r left? 

Man: 2 days Sir! 

Manager: Do u come to work on New Years Day?
