CHENNAI: The Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), together with the National Human Resource Development Network (NHRDN) and XLRI, Jamshedpur, has come out with a human resource competency development model to transform, set standards and benchmark the quality of HR professionals in India.

Called the “HR Compass,” the model has been evolved with the involvement of practitioners, academia and other stakeholders.

The objectives are two fold: it will enable the HR professionals to get integrated with the strategic planning of the firm; and help the industry identify the right talent.

Talking to reporters on Thursday, B. Santhanam, chairman, CII National Committee on Skills, Human Resources and Industrial Relations, said the aim was to raise the standards of human resource profession in India and train human resource professionals as qualified assessors.

“As of now, we have trained 90 human resource professionals as assessors through six training programme held in different parts of the country, and our aim is to increase the number five times. They have to allot six days a year for assessing human resource professionals. During 2009, we plan to assess 1,000 professionals. Currently, we face a significant shortage of human resource professionals, with business schools and institutions churning out one-third to one-fourth of the country’s demand,” he said.

Huge gap

P. Padmakumar, member, CII National Committee on Skills, Human Resources and Industrial Relations, and a professor of XLRI, said XLRI was churning out 2,500 human resource professionals every year. Since there was a huge gap, it joined hands with the CII.
