Years ago…..

                                                  ... When Ashok Grover moved from Operations to Corporate HR, he felt the need to be on the fast track to capture nitty-gritties of the HR function. So, he went on to attend an association meet, where an important member speaker commented, “These days companies are talking of HR. I appeal to all member organizations to rename their departments from P&A (Personnel & Administration) to HR.” Flabbergasted, Ashok could not really digest how only changing the name of a department could make the “difference”. He took upon himself the challenge of building up an environment in his organization where people were treated with respect, management listened to them and the organization invested in their development. He broke the apprehension that by spending on people training and development, their employer might end up as a loser if the employees leave. The message was very clear that having a loyal deadwood for twenty years is a much bigger loss than having four star performers for only five years each. Of course, if one could have loyal star performers, that would be the best of both the worlds… Years later, all these thoughts became the building blocks of the organization - Skillscape - with a clear vision.



Ah! What does it mean to us at Skillscape? Everything! Whatever projects Skillscape undertakes, our focus is always on what value are we adding. We do realize that a mismatch between the business strategy chalked out in the boardroom and the reality at the organisation’s frontline might be simply appalling.

In fact, translation of corporate strategy into targets at the team or individual level undergoes distortions to such an extent that the management would be left wondering - what happened! Having seen both the sides, we understand how painful it can be. And that’s precisely the reason, Skillscape was born!
