India HR LIVE – a contribution to India HR community!


Hi everyone,

You might know me on twitter as @theHRbuddy and might have read my blog at Your HR Buddy!! So you might be wondering why am I starting a new website named India HR LIVE.

Hey, a little flash back! I was born and brought up in India and moved to United States after having worked in Corporate India for a while. I must say, life abroad has opened up a lot of new opportunities and provided me great exposure. And so I started writing and blogging about my HR experiences, started reading a lot and learning from other like minded professionals. I embraced social media and the opportunity to connect with the people I follow and learn from everyday. Not a career I initially envisioned for myself but a momentary break in my career made me strong and enabled me to think and act outside of my comfort zone. Believe me, the personal growth has been tremendous.

It’s been only 2 years but I can now see the evolution in my career. I am a proud Co-host of DriveThruHR, HR’s #1 Daily Radio Show at 12.p.m CT , broadcasting LIVE from United States. I had the pleasure to work with the Social Media Team for two states SHRM conferences in Louisiana and Oklahoma. I was honored to broadcast a LIVEstream show at the SHRM annual conference 2013 at Chicago and I continue to contribute as an author at various HR outlets. My blog was also listed as one of the ‘Top 25 must read HR blogs in 2013‘ by Pay Scale.

So What’s next?!

I have this question in my mind always! Every day when I interact with HR professionals in United States, there is always some one who comes up to me asking for various subject matter experts to connect with from India. They want to know the trends in Indian HR industry, get to know the leading HR vendors, want to know how India embraces the latest tools and technologies and have many more questions. And I am sure you would want to know the best practices in HR across the world. So let me connect the dots!

I always wanted to contribute something to highlight Indian HR community globally. So here it is!

India HR LIVE for the HR community in India is a platform to speak LIVE on Google Plus Hangout about various trends in the HR industry. The idea is to create a channel and a speaking platform for the Indian HR community and to help them reach a global audience through Google Plus Hangout platform.

You can find a LIVE video interview or a panel discussion, every Wednesday at 8:00 pm IST for about 30 minutes, focusing on HR aspects to help national and international audience learn from the thoughtful insights and experiences of our guests. The intention is to help HR professionals enhance their knowledge and learn new skills through this platform.

I hope you will find this initiative useful and join me to help everyone learn and grow together.

When is the Launch?

I am so glad and humbled to let you all know that India HR LIVE will broadcast it’s first LIVE show on 31st July, Wednesday at 8:00 PM Indian Standard Time/9:30 AM Central Time with our honored guest Yashwant Mahadik, Senior Vice President, Head of HR Indian Subcontinent and Global Chief Learning Officer at Philips India and Gautam Ghosh, GM-HR Strategy & project, Philips India and his is the #1 sought after HR & Social Media evangelist.
