The ‘Human Resources Compendium’ Covering Issues Ranging from the Role of the Hr Function, Organisational Culture and Talent Engagement to Diversity & Inclusion, Regulatory Issues and Managing a Post-Pandemic Workforce


  • As one of the country's largest content-based peer group platforms for CEOs and top functional executives, comprising more than 2,000 Indian and global business/functional heads from over 1,200 member companies, this research and opinion has informed the perspectives of business leaders for over 26 years.
  • These briefing sessions, led by well-regarded speakers from industry, government, academia and the media, offer candid and authoritative perspectives on a wide range of economic, policy, business and functional issues. Insights from these sessions are captured and distilled into crisp, focused conclusions papers.
  • In addition, the publisher's in-house research team, which comes with decades of collective experience tracking the Indian operating environment, has created a vast collection of original, business-centric research papers of direct relevance to corporate decision-makers. These cover subjects ranging from economic and policy analysis to industry trends, management practices and emerging business ideas.
  • Collectively, this body of work contains rich lessons, fascinating case studies and deep, often unique perspectives on the challenges, opportunities and - most of all - the reality of operating in India. This series of compendiums is an attempt to share some of the most timeless and relevant learnings, both from our original research and from selectively curated session-conclusion papers.
