India is a powerful force in today's global marketplace. As the second fastest growing economy, right behind China, India is one of the largest consumer markets worldwide, with a rapidly expanding middle class in a population of more than 1.2 billion people. In recent years, with the influence of many multinational corporations in India, Western and global business values are permeating the Indian society and workplace, causing a shift in Indian human resource management (HRM). There is intense competition for talent in India's corporate sector, and at the same time, the need to balance local and global HRM policies and practices in a country where tradition continues to play a large part in people's lives.
Corporate India and HR Management provides both the non-Indian and Indian audiences of HR professionals and other business leaders, learning about HR in India and/or expanding into the Indian marketplace, with a better understanding about India and Indian HRM. The topics covered were selected in view of their importance in the Indian corporate landscape for people management and business strategy today.
To better understand the dramatic change occurring on the Indian management front, as well as appreciate the role of tradition and culture, this book explores human capital in India and closely examines a number of Indian corporations in a wide range of industry sectors. SHRM interviewed Indian HR executives from well established multinational corporations to Indian companies working to gain a solid foothold in a rapidly changing marketplace, each with their unique challenges to attract, develop, and retain talent.
Corporate India and HR Management presents examples of the increased strategic focus of Indian corporations by examining individual companies and hearing directly from Indian HR leaders about their respective opportunities and challenges, including key aspects that contribute to the value proposition of their organizations and core corporate foundations that give them a competitive edge. In addition, to better understand important concepts in the background of Indian management and the workplace, the book offers a glimpse into the unique Indian environment, from demographics and socio-economic factors to cultural influences and drivers that make the Indian marketplace unique.
