Who is Your HR Buddy anyway?

Hi folks, It’s me, Nisha Raghavan. I welcome you all to my blog Your HR Buddy! Why call it Your HR Buddy? When I was in the early stage of my career working in HR, my employees & colleagues were often call me ‘HR buddy’ for being the one who would relate to them and for not being a jerk when it really mattered!

I started this blog after having worked in the corporate world of Reliance Communications Limited and handling hiring, promoting, engaging and firing employees. And I must say you can find this profession challenging if you are passionate about becoming a change agent. As my expertise is in employee engagement and talent management, you can read more about it here. Being an HR professional who worked in India and transplanted to the United States, I bring to you the latest trends in HR Industry through my blog, my Podcasts and Video series.

I am a proud Co-host of DriveThruHR, HR’s #1 Daily Radio Show at 12.p.m CT and also the Founder and Host of India HR LIVE– a TV channel for HR pros, broadcasts LIVE video interviews & panel discussions on every first and third Tuesday 8 pm IST with HR leaders & Industry experts. I am also a contributing author at The SHRM blog  -The leading resource for business executives, policy makers and human resource leaders to explore and discuss the latest workforce and workplace trends -providing the in-depth research and insights needed to adapt and take advantage of what’s next.

Other than blogging what keeps me excited is creating my own artistic impressions with acrylic & oil paints & making clay sculptures once in a while! You can find a few of my creations here at artNisha.com. So in a way, in this blog you can always read my thoughts painted with shades of HR.
