The discussions and debates on the best HR practices have always created curiosity, and many inputs from the influential people in the education and corporate sector have been inculcated by the renowned corporate houses. In this ever changing and dynamic world of corporate, there are some HR practices which remain unchanged while other policies are bound to change with time. On the similar lines, Asia Pacific Institute of Management organized a ‘Presentation Competition’ for the budding managers (fresh management graduates) on 12th July 2017. The topic on which the students were supposed to deliver the presentation was ‘Best Practices of HR’. The chief guest for the event was Ms. Sunaina Dutta, an HR expert currently working in Hewitt India Pvt. Ltd. The event was organized by the Department of Human Resource and Organizational Behaviour.

During the presentation, students spoke on many informative topics like the Latest Trends in HR, Employee Engagement Techniques, Gamification of HR Practices, etc. The presenters also talked about the newly introduced Goods & Services Tax on the HR practices of the industry in general. A lot of enthusiasm was seen among the students as they talked about the above-mentioned topics.
When it was time for Ms. Dutta to speak, students were keen enough to be addressed by such an eminent personality. During her speech, she shared her valuable inputs on how the budding managers should be prepared to face the dynamic nature of ever changing Human Resource practices. She also laid emphasis on how the management graduates can cope up with the challenges that will come their way when they enter the corporate arena.
