In my previous post on Lord Shiva, “Lord Shiva Personifying the “Ideal” Entrepreneur!!”, I portrayed the different forms of God of Gods, Mahavdev such as Rudra, Shipra Prasadi and others into different entrepreneurial roles. But, apart from just these traits, the deity has innumerable skills and capabilities that make him the complete institution in himself.
Lord Shiva, one of the three superpowers has a lesson for every individual through his great legends. Mythical studies have clearly proved that he was an impeccable character and always chose to stay away from the “materialistic” world.
While, he is the “Bholenath” and has so much to learn from, yet one of his skills of being detached from materialism gives a great learning to the Human Resource professionals across all industries.
Everybody knows that Lord Shiva is the only God who is equally worshipped by Devas and Rakshas. Now, with a corporate perspective, every organization comprises of different performance categories of employees and these include top performers, average performers, below average performers and the poor performers.
Here, just like Lord Shiva didn’t bothered about the nature of the worshipper and admired his/her true dedication towards the God, similarly, HR person must also keep self unbiased and treat every employee equally. There can be many reasons or limitation at individual level that contributes in his/her performance, but HR should be the same for every employee. At the appraisal time, you must focus on every employee’s intention and efforts instead of the outcomes. Yes, outcomes are important, but other aspects do matter equally!
Thus, you must not make underperformers feel low or un-catered as compared to the top-performers. This will help you establish a balanced approach towards managing your human capital as well as keeping all employees satisfied and happy!
Take care of Your Employees and Keep Learning From Lord Shiva at different phases of your organizational convoy.
Happy Maha Shivratri!!!
