  • Stresses on finding a path towards a culture that fosters happiness at work
  • A day long discussion by HR Katha, India’s leading HR News Portal

A panel of eminent speakers and HR leaders will meet at The Happiness Conclave on April 29, a full day conference organised by HRKatha, India’s leading HR News Portal at Bengaluru. The panel will discuss and debate to find a structured way to a happy culture at the workplace, and connect it with the business strategy of the organisation.

Delegates at the conference will get to hear senior HR leaders from across sectors—from large Indian business conglomerates and IT giants to new age companies, consumer businesses, financial organisations and start-ups. Some prominent names include:

  • Adil Malia, group president – HR, Essar Group
  • Raj Raghavan, director, country HR leader, Amazon India
  • Jayesh Pandey, managing director – Accenture, Strategy, Talent & Organisation
  • PrithviShergill, chief human resource Officer, HCL Technologies
  • Rajesh Padmanabhan, director & group CHRO, Welspun Group
  • Balachandar N, group director – human resources, Coffee Day Group
  • Yuvaraj Srivastava, chief human resource officer,
  • Shalini Pillay, head-people, performance and culture, KPMG, India
  • Ramendrajit Sen, head – human resources, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, India

Says Prajjal Saha, founder and editor-HRKatha,Several aspects of human resources— be it policies, framework, or technology— have been discussed at the industry forums. But this is the first time that someone is looking at the softer or rather human side of human resources. “Having said that, I would re-emphasise that The Happiness Conclave will delve deep into business strategies and seriously discuss connecting happiness with hard-core business objectives. It is the need of the hour,” he added.

At The Happiness Conclave, the panellists will discuss the comparison of happy employees to happy customers; whether it’s time to have a chief happiness officer on board, or how an organisation can bring in a happy culture at the grass-root level, especially at plants and factories. Besides, there will be interesting case studies— from the world’s leading new-age company, an F&B retail company and a technology start-up. Each of these case studies will reveal and share the strategy and effort behind their happy work environment.
