One of the most insightful suggestions for policy or change management:

'To set up any policy/change in your workplace, you must first understand your employees' pulse and requirements. Find the right balance between focusing on your employee and the direction you want your company to go in.'

This advice was given by our next guest, Shantanu Karnik, HR Manager at Questt. He found the perfect combination to go with after completing his Bachelor's in Law- MBA in Human Resource Development and Industrial Relations. The combination has helped him with policy formulations and legal interpretation, which is required in the HR field. 

Prior to joining Questt, he worked with Amazon for more than two years where he managed over 30+ employees. He sure is a team player. 

In this fun-filled, insightful conversation, we cover:

  • How can business executives make the most of HR technology?
  • What is Questt doing differently to improve employee retention and positive work culture
  • What biggest changes/demands do employees want in their jobs these days?
  • How to set & communicate a flexible work model for employees?
