HR Policies & Employment Legislation

HR Policies define success. We define HR polices for you.

The equation between well developed HR Policies and success is strongly established. While policies and procedures are an essential requirement of employment law, you can seize the opportunity to define them to increase employee engagement and productivity.

It is simple to ascertain whether the current HR polices are working.

When to review HR Policies?

Along with the growth of the organization, there is a natural increase in staff strength. You would also have hired more people from diverse work cultures, for different roles and at varying levels. Managing the growth usually leaves less time to focus on reviewing HR practices or it is natural to assume that the policies that worked well will continue to work well.

However, it is safer to spend a little thought if any of these changes have occurred.

  • You have expanded business across borders, where employment laws are different.
  • Line managers refer more than usual number of issues to HR for clarification.
  • Head count has grown and there is significant change in roles/ levels.
  • Workforce has been with you for some years and HR Policies may not be addressing seniority aspirations.
  • Recruitment is presenting difficulties.
  • Benchmarks for compensation and Reward Management are out of date.
  • Employment law officers have raised concerns or employees have approached dispute resolution mechanisms.
  • HR Manual and Employee handbook are not current.
  • HR Policies are not in sync with changes in employment laws.

The best practice is to regularly revise and ensure that the HR policy is aligned with the employment law and is designed to contribute to business growth and profitability. Developing the right strategy of course needs a certain thought and time.

  • Jagdish and his team were extremely helpful. Despite not having met before, Jagdish put me in total comfort of dealing with a soft-spoken, knowledgeable and professional senior executive, which I reckon, was the best that I have ever experienced till date. From making impeccable travel and stay arrangements to coordinating my interview with my current employer, everything was so well planned and executed without any hitch. I would highly recommend Jagdish and his team for professionals who are looking to move to Dubai for better opportunities.

  • Jagdish is an extremely knowledgeable and effective HR professional who is collaborative and supportive in his work style. He was a great addition to the HR Team given the breadth and depth of his knowledge in HR Policy and Recruitment. Jagdish was also a good team leader with a positive presence and knew how to get the most out of his staff. He would be an asset to any organization. Jagdish is a professional who truly cares about the quality of the work that he produces. He has a great personality, is a good negotiator and is extremely tech-savvy.

  • We hired Jagdish's company (HCMC) to fill a few mission-critical positions for our company in the middle management. Aside from exploring candidates ourselves, we felt that a thorough professional like Jagdish can help us identify the right candidate/s for the company. We were not let down! Jagdish and his team handled our requirements very well and ensured that we hired really competent candidates for our company.

  • My professional association with Jagdish started in 2000, when I was with Emirates Airlines (IT Mercator) Division. He helped us to recruit a number of people. What struck me was his network amongst professionals in the UAE and multi domain knowledge, which proved to be a handy expertise in Executive search.

  • I have known Jagdish since 1999 while he was with IT People. Jagdish frankly was a discovery as he proved greater than what he appeared to be or spoke about. Though those days he did not appear to be an out spoken guy, he proved his capabilities beyond the expectations of the team and the management. I still remember him as a sober chap, highly flexible, ready to sacrifice anything and everything to attain the task before him - he never complains about extended work times, late nights or setbacks due to client delays - He tuned with his team managers displaying high loyalty, dedication and cooperation as if he was silently saying in unsaid words that "I will run with you till we reach the destination together no matter what slows us down or no matter how high are the mountains that we need to climb till we reach there. “

    When I met him recently, I have realised that he has progressed much ahead in his career both in maturity and experience in the HR domain and I was extremely happy to understand his progress and success. I truly and sincerely wish Jagdish all the best in his new HR venture and I am positive that he is one of the few who will stand strong to fulfil his commitments and meet the needs of his clients to their utmost satisfaction. My advice to Jagdish is “To be yourself and to be original because there are only a few who can do as best as you without needing a put up personality”.
