KCTBS is associated with Student Podium for almost a year. The HR centre was involved closely with a project that will support the company in product design. Two focus group discussions were organized with two different stakeholders to present the product concept and elicit information regarding the same. One focus group discussion with the HR Professionals styled “Hiring :Way Forward” was to understand the expectations from the HR when hiring freshers and the common problems that hamper their selection process. The hiring managers from across industry segments were invited enabling student podium to gauge the hiring scenarios across sections.
The second focus group discussion titled “Developing and Placing Students – Way Forward” was organized with all training and placement officers to identify the hiccups during placement season. The program bought together placement officers from various institutions to deliberate on the placement scenarios prevailing. The programs were held on February 17, 2018 and March 5, 2018 respectively. Dr. Kirupa Priyadarsini Associate Professor & Centre head HR led the project with the support of Mr.Saravana Prasad, Lead Corporate Relations along with student coordinators Mr.Shankar Prabhu and Mr.Shivagurunathan.
