COVER STORY

SOLUTIONS ‘Kelsa’ Means ‘Work’, Going That Extra Mile.

K elsa Management Solutions was started in March

2010 with a mission to cater to the needs of small and medium sized corporations to manage their people requirements who, are on the threshold of growth. Kelsa is augmenting its vision of being a unique solution provider by establishing their own frameworks for Organization and Leadership Development and Employee Engagement. During the last ten years of its journey, Kelsa has matured into an organization that not only provides niche HR solutions but also use its expertise to build an HR Academy. 6

They have partnered with more than 200 clients through a vast spectrum of industries of all sizes; from small, medium to large and MNCs. Kelsa has delivered solutions which are tailor-made to the requirements of the customers across the entire HR life cycle in an organization. It also takes on the role of Independent Directors on Boards of companies to help them formulate their people strategies at the Board level. The asymmetric expectations concerning strategy and execution imposes a tremendous burden on HR professionals which, seems to be the prime reason why small and medium-sized organizations have a hard time not only finding top talents in the industry but also retaining them. Kelsa perceived this as an opportunity and addressed the problem by aligning the business vision of the customer firms with the HR strategy in the SME space. Its ultimate goal is to help transform the HR role to being Business Partners who advise organizations on their strategies. Kelsa was co-founded by K. Sridhar, Devika Dharmaraj and R. Shantaram. The combined experience of the three founders crosses the threshold of a hundred years in the Human Resource industry. K. Sridhar has more than 40 years of experience, working and growing in various organizations as a strategist. He is a veteran management professional in the industry. Sridhar has done his post-graduation in management from the University of Madras. Later, he has been trained as a Lead Assessor for P-CMM at the Carnegie-Mellon University, USA. He has played a variety of roles in small, medium and large organizations. Devika Dharmaraj and R. Shantaram are both post-graduates in management from XLRI, Jamshedpur. Devika has more than 25 years of experience in the HR industry and worked in diverse roles from being a manager to an independent consultant. Her vast experience comes from engineering, processing, manufacturing, healthcare and IT sectors which have led her to work internationally. R. Shantaram has an experience of 30 years in the HR industry. He has worked in diverse roles in organizations ranging from 15,000-strong transnationals to startups having less than 30 employees. He has worked in a variety of industries including manufacturing, automobiles, IT/ITES, media and consulting. He was a key member of the India leadership team at Sutherland Global Services, spearheading the growth of the organization from ‘proof-of-concept’ to becoming one of the top 5 BPO companies in India. The diversity of the Founders’ experiences helped Kelsa navigate through various challenging assignments in different sectors of industries. The values shared by the three Founders have contributed to Kelsa’s achievements. Kelsa’s professionals acknowledge the need of the client organization andthen bring innovative solutions to the table. This approach makes their work cycle unique in the industry which, aligns with the values and culture of their client. They have added value to a variety of organizations in various stages of growth to help people deliver better performance, dovetail business strategies and people practices, develop leadership teams and put together systems to scale up performances. Kelsa strives to measure the impact of their work through internally developed metrics relevant to the client organization. The many years of service, practice, and experience have translated into three products which Kelsa offers: • Kelsa Konvex® is a 360° audit of all the HR practices in the organization: HR Audit product is designed specifically to understand need-gaps and bottle-necks in achieving goals. It is designed not with the past or even present in mind, but with a focus on the future. The major differentiator of Kelsa Konvex® is


that it looks at the “As-Is” state as a starting point in order to build capabilities to take the organization to “Where the company ought to be.” The Kelsa Konvex® audit culminates in a set of specific action areas for the client to work on – where required, Kelsa will support the execution as well. • The H3M3® is an employee engagement framework that recognizes both the emotional and logical (Heart and Mind, hence the name, H3M3) components of engagement. A key differentiator is that Kelsa’s model is able to uncover enterprise-wide, systemic gaps while also being able to provide people-manager-specific action areas for boosting employee engagement.

• Flexible 360° Leadership Feedback Survey scheduled to be launched as a mobile app, is extremely flexible and scalable. Kelsa has combined the organizational goal of understanding leadership capability with a unique “Hidden Capability Finder”, with individual goals of driving leadership behavior through their own tailored program for development. Kelsa is also working on an HR Academy which will encompass the whole spectrum of HR’s latest concepts and top practices existing in the industry. This product would assist the HR practitioners to take on more daunting challenges and roles in the organization and employ the most efficient techniques. The product can enhance the potential of an individual significantly. It can be delivered on-premises or over multiple digital platforms. It has already been deployed in three large organizations. Kelsa’s biggest strength is its customers. Almost all clients come back to work with them so they secure multiple engagements covering different phases of HR interventions. They have developed a ‘Knowledge Management Repository’ which reduces the time to deploy repeated products. Kelsa maintains an open and transparent culture in their working. This encourages their employees to embrace opportunities to gain unique insights and work on new projects. The team is allowed to try and test new paradigms of HR interventions. Presently, Kelsa is observing a quantum jump in its growth. Since they possess an excellent foundation and a loyal customer base, they are gearing up for a rapid growth boost in the coming two to three years both nationally as well as internationally. With projects successfully executed in countries like the USA, South Africa, South Korea, Sri Lanka, Qatar etc., they have gained traction to expand their services overseas too. Kelsa’s most principal assets are speed and quality in delivering the results to the client organizations. Kelsa looks forward to impacting many more firms across industries in the years to come!

AID of AI in HR

“ 14

T

he world is eyeing a colossal shift in its working and efficiency and productivity. A brand-new technology is knocking on the doors, bringing a revolution of its own. Soon, the door would fling open and it will come rushing in, changing every aspect of the world. Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the technology in its toddler phase but the impacts could be witnessed throughout the industries. From Apple’s Siri to Amazon’s Alexa, AI is steadily infiltrating our daily lives. Half a decade later, it would be no surprise that employees will find themselves alongside AI. AI is now pushing the limits and unshackling the chains that had long bind humans. Human Resource is the sector where the line separating AI and humans is speedily diminishing. The human mind is generally biased, it is but how nature had deemed our minds to be. The studies have shown quite an impact on how employers encounter this bias on regular basis called ‘Unconscious bias’. In the broad spectrum of processes, employers, even though they would try to be impartial, eventually lands there where they are trying hard not to. The more the candidate is like the employer, the more the employer is leaned towards recruiting the candidate despite the indictors that the applicant is not suitable. Another such bias is Language bias. People speaking same language influences the human mind and favor is more towards the applicant speaking the same language as the employer.


The same, repetitive tasks that require lot of time to process, AI can handle it seamlessly. During vacation times, many employees put in request for extension of vacation, this takes eats up time for the manager to tell everyone how unlikely their request is to approve. The organization frequently conducts training sessions to improve their employees. AI takes over the process and assigns specific skills necessary for the employee to learn. Also, the team trainers can be informed well in advance about trainees joining the session.

But AI is a different story. With specific algorithms, AI can be programmed to choose the best among the lot who fulfills the requirement as per the organization.

Customers' date is the most vital point in an organization. To gather the data, storing it and then analyzing it to predict future behavior of organization’s customers is enormous work for HR department. To streamline the process of leveraging the people analytics, AI can be programmed to manage all the data analyzing and generating a report to aid the HR department to gain insightful prediction of their customers.

After the hiring process is done and over with, most recruits have no idea as to where they should go, to whom they should talk if they meet some problem, what about the name and contact information? They want to meet new people or seniors and garner suggestions to improve their abilities. These questions can easily be feed into algorithm saving the employees their time.

Organizations are always hunting top talents in their respective industries. Wherein an employee’s experience becomes a topmost priority for a firm. After the project is submitted for the approval of client, the employees are anxious about the feedback. There is haste in getting to know how they did on the projects. With ups and downs on every corner of life, it is not always possible for all to do exceptionally well. AI then can be put to use to determine the mood or state of mind of the employee before dispatching the feedback results to ensure there is none to little harm to the employee efficiency and productivity.

When a potential employee sends in the application, AI can process the application to the tailored needs of the recruiter and send the report back almost immediately, assigning further details about the interview process or answer any queries. AI gives real-time feedback to the candidate, making the process hassle-free and efficient for both. This way, the employers can pin their focus on converting the interviewees into hires.

There is no telling when an employee would get fed up and start searching for a better opportunity elsewhere. Though, after investing loads of money and time on an employee, it becomes rather crucial for the organization to know who is on their way out and why. This is where AI can keep track of emails, search history or any irregularity.

The professionals also needed guidance and help in securing a job. After acquiring the first big client in a healthcare tech startup, he developed and launched an online job portal, curaa.in, to streamline the job-seeking processes.

PERSONALIZATION IN HUMAN RESOURCE

MANAGEMENT

“ O

ne size fits all, is the adage thriving since archaic times. For the generations and eras, it had held water as people had restricted knowledge about their individual fields and so, the concept stick to anyone who had the interest to pursue. However, with changing times and tons of data being uploaded every day, the knowledge is ever-expanding and with it had the arisen the need to tailor numerous aspects of an individual’s life as opposed to one die-casted size would fit all. As the old is bound to be replaced by new, Personalization is gaining traction in Human Resource Management. Personalization is often tangled up with customization, though there is the similarity between the two shares mostly, Personalization would come as the information possessed by the company modifying the experiences to suit an individual. Here, the company takes care of crafting the experiences for the employee based on the information.

22


Keeping an eye on the most basic needs of a human being; security, certainty, variety, significance, connection, growth, contribution, etc. the Personalization takes into account these needs and puts other requirements in the equation to create a perfect scenario where grounds can be held. The best and typical use of Personalization can be found in the recruitment process. A studio which in the niche of photography but does more of wedding shoots can personalize their recruitment by sending ads through Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, etc. to reach the potential candidate showing similar interest in wedding photography. Once all the latent candidates’ response to the ad, the studio can further personalize their needs to see which one fits the case and is the best, effectively reducing the time required for hiring and in turn, hiring an applicant who already has mastered the necessary skills to get the job done, saving further time and investment to train the candidate. The time which can land other contracts. Another such area is Compensations and Benefits. Young men and women eyes compensations and benefits in slightly different ways so do the working parents and those who are about to rest their career forever and enjoy life. The trends are always different for every age group. For instance, if a company offers retirement-related options to young employees, they are likely to choose to invest the money and get more returns rather than keeping it safe for the retirement age. On the other hand, working parents find it more appealing to have education, loans, health schemes. The company offering these choices to the employees earn better results and trust from their workforce. Mentoring and development of employees to advance and accelerate their knowledge to keep pace with changing technology have become prevalent in the decade. The education sector is still under the impression of one for all. In the long run, this does not yield results that are expected. With growing years, every individual’s taste changes. They might wish to learn something completely different from what they are doing. The company can take advantage of this desire to getting its employees going to achieve what they want. The programs can be personalized to serve the individual on interest, making their experience pleasant. Organizations offering personalized learning programs tend to keep their employee retention scores quite higher than those employing one size for all programs.

Recognition is what all strive for. Bigger the organization, bigger the team would be, masking the presence of most members. Shout-outs or kudos can lead to the betterment of the members should all them receive the share of the pie. Personalized messages here can enhance the morale of the employees to believe in the core values shared by the organization and thus building a bridge to confidence. When an employee is appreciated for the specific done by them, they will be more productive and creative. Something more than ‘He/she is good’, in feedback would produce a better impact. This, in turn, can influence employees to pour in all their efforts because there is transparency, knowing that they are looked after and care is taken to see that they are happy and fulfilled.
