Thane HR Group [THRG] is an informal group – there is no membership fee and no office bearers. But a core committee [anybody can join it, you too can join, just write to Anil K] met early in the year to decide the theme for the year so that the programs remain in line with our purpose. The theme was "Telescoping in to Future: Managing HR creatively."
Keeping in line with this theme Thane HR Group has organised many events in the year 2010. All the programmes got huge response from the members and we are thankful to them for their continuous support. THRG being an informal forum it does not generate any revenue by way of membership. Few of the programmes of 2010 were sponsored by companies like Paper Products, 3P Consultants, Thane Janata Sahakari Bank, TBZ, and Jupiter Hospital.
The core Committee of Thane HR Group [Alok Sheopurkar, Sharad Gangal, Anil Kshatriya, Anil Joshi, Dipak Gadekar, Prashant Karmalkar, Suresh Ogale, Prashant Sawant, Ms Daisy Garud and Vivek Patwardhan] was constantly working on new formats and discussing ideas to make the programmes meaningful and interesting. You would have noticed the different format when Mr. Ghaisas spoke about his life and work and was interviewed by Alok Sheopurkar.
The Annual Event programme was based on one such idea. We said we will give first-hand experience of running a business to HR professionals so that nobody can make allegation that they do not understand business. We organised a Business Simulation Game which provided experiential inputs.
During the year Mr Sridhar Ganesh, Group HR Director of Murugappa Group, Mr. Dileep Ranjekar, CEO of Azim Premji Foundation, Mr. Deepak Ghaisas, currently Chairman of Gencoval Strategic Services Pvt Ltd. and erstwhile CEO of I-flex Solutions, Dr Devadutt Pattnaik, Chief Belief Officer of the Future Group, Mr Sanjay Jha, CE of CricketNext.com, Dr JM Sampath, MD of Arpitha Associates addressed the audience at Thane HR Group.
More exciting programmes this year, announcements will be made on Thane HR Group on LinkedIn.
