SHRM Top 30 Indian HR Influencers on Social Media 2018

Each year, SHRM India releases a report outlining top social media influencers in HR space. Last week, the report was released at SHRMTech event in Hyderabad and I was thrilled to find a spot in this report for fifth consecutive year. The evaluation was done based on Klout score, LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter activity with focus on HR specific topics.

Influence of any kind can never be a goal in itself but a by-product of doing, learning and sharing it all along the way. When the sharing enables, helps, nudges and inspires others to do better, influence is more likely to happen.

Inspired by so many wonderful people in Indian HR space in the report (and so many others in my personal learning network), I continue my pursuit of curating meaningful insights visually, sharing what I learn and contributing to conversations that matter.

SHRM Top 25 Indian HR Influencers on Social Media 2014

Last week, SHRM India published a list of “Top 25 Indian HR Influencers on Social Media” for the year 2014-15.

I am glad to be ranked amongst top 5 influencers for the third consecutive year. Each year, SHRM India raises the bar and changes evaluation method. This year, they considered activity/interactions beyond Twitter to cover Blog, LinkedIn, Klout and Quora.

This recognition underlines my belief in the human aspect of how work gets done. Which also means we need to do better at creating systems where human beings can thrive and make a difference.

And therefore, I am excited!

SHRM Top 20 Indian HR Influencers Active on Social Media 2013

Social media has become mainstream and an integral part of business strategy. Social media is at the center of how people connect, consume information, drive conversations, initiate movements and promote brands. At a time when everyone seems to be on social media, the challenge for those who wish to make a difference is to generate influence.

Last year, SHRM India published a first-ever list of Top 20 Indian HR Influencers on Social Media – people with distinct voice that reflects engaging ideas and insights. I was featured at #4.

This year again, SHRM India published a list of Top 20 Indian HR Influencers Active on Social Media 2013” and I was so happy to featured at #3 along with prominent HR thought-leaders and practitioners like Gautam Ghosh (Philips India), Vineet Nayar (Joint Managing Director, HCL Tech), Abhijit Bhaduri (Chief Learning Officer, Wipro), Aadil Bandukwala (Recruitment Product Consultant, LinkedIn), and Anand Pillai (Chief Learning Officer, Reliance), amongst others. This year, influence was evaluated with a focus on quality of conversations apart from Twitter statistics. As per SHRM,

The new report, in addition to gauging the influence of dominant HR voices on Twitter, goes a step further by zeroing in on the content of the Twittersations. ‘The methodology followed this year is similar to the last year with one core addition. In 2012, we identified specific HR keywords and monitored them on Twitter but this year we looked at the influencers from Learning and Development, Social Media, Talent Management and Leadership domains and captured their influence on Twitter,’ the report says.

From an HR perspective, it is important that talent managers leverage the power of social media to recruit, collaborate and engage with current and future talent pool.

This recognition for second consecutive year underlines my belief: Excellence is a product of leading people well and every manager, in that sense, is an HR Manager. Building a culture of excellence is not just a departmental job of HR, it is everybody’s job.

I am excited about this recognition because it underlines the importance of human factor in quality.
