“It’s not the strongest who survives, not the most intelligent but the one most responsive to change” – Charles Darwin. This quote was used by Mr. Ramchandra Rao (Group HR Head, GVK & Director MIL) Chief Guest, for setting the ball rolling for the Conference. This was said in the context of Human Resources, meaning that HR will survive in the coming decades if it re-invents itself and remains a rolling stone.
There were great speakers who have taken their time out from their busy schedules to grace the conference were Mr.Nitin Putcha (Vice President, Operations, ITM), Prof. R.S.S Mani (Vice President, Institutional Development, ITM), and Mr. Ramachandra Rao, who addressed the Inaugural session.

They give their personal opinions on the topic of discussion of the day – ‘HR Practices in Public Sectors’. It can be summed up that HR should create a proper (healthy) work-culture. The term‘re-inventing’ was used because business strategies and agenda change with time. HR practices are the same but the organization’s adaptations are different. This has been discussed on a broad level by Mr. Vivek Patwardhan ( Independent Consultant, Ex-Head HR, Asian Paints ), Mr. S.K. Maddodi ( GM HR, ONGC ), Mr. S.K. Agarwal ( GM HR, NPCIL ), Mr. S. Sathiavageeswaran ( GM HR, IOCL ), Mr. Tanmay Panda ( Head HR, NPCI ), Mr. Ashis Sen ( Head Training and BSC, HPCL ).

This had been over emphasized by our Director Dr. Ganesh Raja.
