Drawing Parallels – Life of Police vs Life of HR

Dear Member,

Police officers maintain law and order: protect members of the public and their property; prevent, detect and investigate crime. They are an integral part of the community. HR professionals maintain the culture and value system of the organization: protecting the interests of the employees and management, executing welfare measures, prevent and investigate disciplinary incidents. They are an integral part of the organization. With a lot of similarities in the roles, there is a lot of cross learning that each of us can take away.

During the session this month, our speaker will be talking about recruitment and performance management in the police force, what are the motivation factors for them – is it the power and authority or is it working for the larger cause?, what are the challenges in handling public especially when they do not have a very positive image about you etc. He will share interesting anecdotes from his personal experience and draw parallels with the HR profession on how we can handle employees, motivate them and overcome some of the challenges of the role.

The newly elected team of NHRD Chennai Chapter invites all its members for the very first session with a Super Cop who is also a motivational speaker, an avid fitness enthusiast, an athlete and an author who will enthrall us with his insights coupled with great persona and style.
