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 20 Indian HR Influencers on Social Media 2015-16

Last week, SHRM India continued its tradition of releasing its report on Top 20 Indian HR Influencers on Social Media for 2015-16.

I was thrilled to be ranked amongst Top 10 Influencers for the fourth consecutive year. The report says,

So, we shortlisted 200 influencers and took into consideration multiple social platforms to find out the Top 20 influencers of the year. These influencers have played a significant role in informing and educating people on the recent trends of Human Resources on the digital medium.

I was also featured amongst the most consistent influencers since the inception of this report. That was truly humbling!

For someone who is not into traditional HR space but into business operations, this recognition means a lot. It underlines the fact that we can no longer depend only on one department to engage people, manage talent and build culture. New world of work and changing expectations from people demand that every business leader inculcates the mindset of HR. If you work with people, you are into HR – no more, no less.

We can and we need to do much better at creating ecosystems of performance and engagement.

And the journey in that direction continues!
