scmhrd HRF

The HR Forum, is one of the functional committees of SCMHRD. It is the face of the students of Human Resources in SCMHRD. The HR Forum started as an initiative to give a boost to the HR activities in the college. The main aim of the HR Forum is to spearhead activities that could remove the traditional myths surrounding HR as a function and to create awareness regarding the importance of HR function in the current business scenario. It facilitates the functioning of the Centre of Excellence for HR. It provides a platform to the student community to understand and enhance their knowledge in this field by getting associated with the faculty, participating in events and contributing through articles. It undertakes a plethora of activities all around the year involving students from B-Schools all across India and industry personnel from various sectors.

J.A.M 5.0

This year the team organized its fifth edition of J.A.M (Just A Minute). The event saw participation from senior and junior batches of SCMHRD. Cash prizes and vouchers were given to the best speakers.


On 5th January, 2015, HR Forum of SCMHRD held its Flagship Student event PARADIGMA’15 (Strategize.Interact.Execute) and the theme for the event was “Employee Engagement.” The esteemed judges for the event were Mr. Ritesh Joshi from Cummins Generators limited, Ms. Shuchita Basu from Syntel and Mr. Kaushik Srinivasan from KaN Talent Associates. The event was exceptionally well received by the audience and the faculty.


This year the HR Forum has come up with its very own monthly newsletter called “Hangover”. The newsletter rounds up all the events happening in the world of HR. It acts as a bridge between the industry and the students. This newsletter was exceptionally well received by the faculty of SCMHRD.

HR Mesh

The HR Forum releases a bi annual magazine called the ‘HR Mesh’ featuring analysis of major business events from an HR perspective, spotlights on prominent personalities in the HR world and insights into current issues, trends and practices in HR. Articles and inputs for this magazine are invited from our students, Alumni and the Corporate in the HR Field. The themes for this year’s HR Mesh are, Change Management and Work-Life Balance.

GD/PI Guidance for Summer Internships and Final Placements

The HR Forum serves as a facilitator to help students interact with their seniors and get inputs from them on how to approach the GD/PI process. Each student is given a chance to be a part of at least 2 mock group discussions with senior students serving as panel members. Through this process, students get feedback on their performance in the GD and areas of improvement are identified.

Placement Information

The HR Forum maintains a database of all the Group Discussion cases studies and Interview Questions asked during the placement processes. This database serves as a reference for the GD/PI guidance process and helps our students equip themselves to tackle corporate placements.

The Buddy Program

Considering the importance mentorship programs are gaining, particularly in the corporate, and their benefits in terms of overall learning of individuals, HR Forum took the initiative of introducing a similar concept in the college by designing a mentorship program on similar lines called the “The Buddy Program”. The objective of the buddy program is to serve as a facilitator to help the junior batch interact with their senior batch and get inputs from them for preparation for summer placements. In this program, every junior is assigned a senior of his/her respective specialization as mentor. The mentors (buddies) guide the juniors in terms of preparation regarding Group Discussions, Personal Interviews, subject matter, summer projects etc.

French for Trick has always been about novelty. The last time HRF organized this event was in 2014. The fest saw a phenomenal response from top business schools all over the country. The theme was ‘The Hired and The Wired- HR and Technology’ and eminent speakersThis time was no different.

Buzz around Astuce ’16 began with a poll from students where they chose the theme ‘HR in Start Ups’. The inspiration of the same comes from the sudden downfall of many Start Ups which shot to fame but saw rather rough days because of their confused HR strategies.

Eminent guests from the industry Mr Ajay Nair(Chief Administration Officer,, Mr. Atulaya Goswami (Regional HR Business Partner with Procter & Gamble) and Mr. Suman Paul (Director - Compensation and Benefits, with Viacomm) and Mr Vikram Vora(CEO,MyDentist) were part of the conclave.
