The Corporate Connect - Mr. Bhaskar Bhattacharya

After the success of the first Corporate Connect, the Corporate Relations Committee invited Mr. Bhaskar Bhattacharya to our campus. Mr. Bhaskar Bhattacharya is currently the Associate Vice President-Hindalco Industries Limited. He has a work experience of around 15 years in which he has worked for prominent companies like ABG Cement Limited, MIRC Electronics Limited (ONIDA) and Grasim industries Limited. He specializes in Communication, Negotiation, Talent Acquisition, Leadership Management, Performance Management and Employee Engagement. ‘HR professional with a personal touch’ describes him the best.

Mr. Bhattacharya started with an introduction on what 'Talent Management' really is. He gave insights about various activities across different industries aimed at nourishing talent. He shared experiences of various activities which his present organization Hindalco Ltd. is into.

Mr. Bhattacharya shared insights on how 'Employer Branding' is important and also how it helps in establishing loyalty for the company. He also threw light upon the concept of creating a sense of ownership in the mind of every employee. While answering questions, Mr. Bhattacharya touched upon various other topics like effect of sacking of employees and how to create a win-win situation for both employees and employer. He also shared insights on how his organization went about inculcating their core values into its recently acquired subsidiary Novelis.




Mr. Bhattacharya enthusiastically shared thoughts about 'Balance Score Card' and explained different concepts used in HR to evaluate employees and nurture future leadership. He also explained 'Retail Penetration' - a concept on which he has written a research paper. The idea of a holistic perspective in management and how the absence of it can create problematic situations was also emphasized upon.

On a concluding note, Mr. Bhattacharya advised students to read books, and follow the latest trends in management worldwide. He also advised them not to restrict themselves to their specialization, but rather have a holistic view of the organization. He elaborated on the importance of knowledge and emphasized on the fact that it is the content that one speaks that takes her/him to new heights in career.

It was a very insightful discussion and we hope to have more such opportunities to interact with him.
