“Apakah Anda merekrut orang yang tepat? Ketika merekrut, apakah Anda menunjukkan jalur karir yang menarik? Tidak semua orang bekerja hanya untuk gaji,” ungkap Srinivasan Ramanan, advisor  JAC Indonesia dalam seminar Executive hiring: reality or myth di lantai 30 Sampoerna Strategic Square, hari Rabu 13 Mei 2015.



Bisa disimpulkan bahwa:
  • Departemen Human Resource adalah aset penting untuk kemajuan perusahaan
  • Perekrutan adalah proses yang penting dan tidak bisa sembarangan
  • Merekrut orang yang salah akan membuat kerugian yang besar.
  • Ciptakan KPI (Key Performance Indicator) yang realistis
  • Tidak ada yang bisa menggantikan peran manusia dalam sebuah perusahaan.


Srinivasan menceritakan banyak cerita menarik yang dia alami di lingkup dunia perekrutan. “Tak ada mesin yang bisa menggantikan peran manusia dan perusahaan harus membuat pegawai bahagia ketika datang ke kantor,” ungkap Srinivasan. Inilah peran kita semua, khususnya memanusiakan manusia dalam sumber daya manusia.
