BENGALURU: St. Joseph’s College of Business Administration held its annual round table on talent retention here on Thursday.

Among the suggestions from HR heads of various companies was that companies must focus on building the right environment to attract people.

But that alone may not be enough. “People need to feel valued which can be done by distributing the benefits of business success across

organisational levels, through bonuses and other incentives,” said a senior HR head.

One set of employees, according to a couple of speakers, that need to be focused are “millennials”, who need to be given increased opportunities of learning and other career growth opportunities.

A radical idea mooted was to allow people into management cadres only if they had coached and helped other employees.

Among those who who took part included Raju, vice president of Human Resources, CocaCola; Ritu Chaubey, director of human resources, Arris; Mathew Joseph, manager for human resources, Strides Shasun; Pritish David, associate manager for human resources, Mindtree; H S Ramesh, general manager at Bosch; Winston D’Rosario, director for human Resources, Grand Thornton.
