AIMS International India hosted Executive Search and Talent Management Consultants from 45 countries for AIMS International’s Annual General Meeting in New Delhi last month. As always, top of the agenda were discussions on how to stay a step ahead of our clients’ needs in the global market place and the changing world of HR Consulting. This included a prestigious Human Resource event on 22nd September at Hotel Radisson Blu Plaza, where top notch HR professionals and Business Executives were invited to a panel discussion on Human Capital Digital Era – Innovation & Integration. The discussions were moderated by Mr. Roger Cater, Managing Partner of AIMS International UK, a well respected Executive Search veteran.

Panelists were Mr. Chandan Chattaraj, Global President HR of Uflex Group and Dr. NS Rajan, CHRO & CMO of IDFC Bank and CEO of IDGC foundation and former President HR, a Board member & member of the prestigious Executive Council of TATA Sons,  one of the largest Salt-to-Software conglomerates having more than 100 companies and business interests worldwide.

While Dr. Rajan enlightened with his experiences and innovative approach within TATA Sons as well as IDFC Bank, digitising the Human Resource function to get in sync within a rapidly changing industry and economy, Mr. Chattaraj took our audience through an amazing journey of machines and human resources integration.  He showcased the transformation of the manufacturing process with digitisation and integrating human resources in order to enhance productivity, safety and quality while reducing production time along with state-of-the-art supply chain processes.

Mr. Chattaraj strongly argued that in today’s rapidly changing digital environment, his role does not limit him to human resources and board rooms but forces him to connect with machines, production rooms, stores, supply- chain depots and each and every function of the company, including quality and purchasing. These out of the box thoughts makes Uflex today one of the most prestigious brands in Indian packaging and engineering industries.

The sessions were continued by robust discussions amongst AIMS Partners, Senior Business Executives and Heads of HR, moderated by Mr. Cater, followed by a great networking experience with cocktails and dinner

As a host of this highly engaging event, I hereby deliver my sincere thank you to all the participants from the industry, panelists and fellow AIMS Partners
