Superbmarket- Think Beyond Supermarkets

August 27, 2012 4 comments

The days of supermarkets are over. Here the supermarket symbolizes just a place where people can shop whatever they daily need and just a workplace for livelihood for the employees. This supermarket is characterised by boring shopping experiences and stressful working conditions. It results in high customer turnover and employee turnover which negatively affect the prosperity of the retail organization.

Superbmarket is an experiment to create an ideal supermarket possessing a Retail Human Recourse Management (RHRM) system, which ensures fully engaged and empowered employees who can deliver the best possible service to the customers with in the all limitations of retail organizations.

Navarasas of Training

Training is a wonderful art. It’s the art of imparting knowledge, skill and sows the seeds of right attitude in the learners. It is a divine profession. Based on my Trimurti HR model, Trainer is performing the duties of Saraswathi, Goddess of Wisdom. Unfortunately, no one is getting greater exposure to this wonderful art in the school days or earlier collage days. Most of the time, the output of training is assessed by the feedback of the learner (how much they enjoyed!!). Some trainers are tempted to follow this and they compromise on the content of training to satisfy the audience. They are making the sessions funny or colourful without any real crux. It makes the real worth of training zero.

The challenges of a trainer are making his audience happy and give returns to the organization. It demands the 100% dedication from the trainer. If the trainer is ready to adopt different styles or types of training, it will make real results.

Here I am sharing 9 types/styles or training with its merits and demerits. A good mixture of these styles and good content will make your training excellent and will give the real results.

Click & download Trimurti Model HR (powerpoint) by Sijin Bt & Indulekha R

What is the relationship between Trimurtis of Indian mythology and Human resource management? Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva are the Trimutis of Hinduism. If this universe can be considered as a mighty corporate, Trimuti is the HR department of this corporate. Their roles of creation-protection-destruction have similarities with the roles HR plays in an organization.

Trimurti Model of Human Resource Management divides HR into 3 different functional levels, based on various roles they play in business. Like creation-protection-destruction roles Trimurtis play, HR has to play these roles in the business. Let’s see how HR roles are linked with the Trimurti roles.

Brahma is the creator. He created different living beings to perform different roles. Otherwise, he created different roles and created different living beings suitable to perform these roles. In an organization, Recruitment function of HR is creating jobs and recruiting suitable candidates to perform these jobs.  Goddess Sarawswathi is the wife of Brahma and she gives knowledge and skills to everyone to perform their duties beautifully. Training function of HR imparts knowledge and skills to the new recruits and makes them fit to perform their roles.

Vishnu is the maintainer or preserver. He preserves the good people, helps the good to grow and ensures the elimination of evil or bad. Performance Management system and employee engagement activities of HR maintains or promotes the excellent work environment in the organizations. Goddess Lakshmi is his wife and gives wealth to people. In organizations, HR decides compensation, incentives and other benefits, which prospers the employees.

Shiva is the destroyer and his wife Parvathi is the goddess of power. They are controlling and eliminating the evil. Like them HR initiates various actions to control problem makers and problematic situations. Various disciplinary actions, termination and lockouts come under HR’s purview.

We can determine the health of an organization by assessing which function dominates the HR. Click & download the draft of Trimurti Model HR. Please forward your suggestions.
