THE OD FOLLOWER’S ORATE P B Nageshwar, Head HR, Oberoi Realty Limited, discusses ‘Entrepreneurial Employees: Need of the hour’


EMBRACING CHANGE WITH ‘GENERATION Y ‘ For the !rst time in history we have four generations working together with Generation Y, the newest entrant, at the helm of the activity. A downturn in productivity is inevitable if the four generations do not acclimatize and work together. For competitive advantage today, organizations require employees who own their work and are accountable. This creates a need for a workforce that is proactive, independent, sensitive to ambiguities of the environment and willing to accept changes as quickly as the Indian market accepts di"erent clothing brands. We would all like employees who work with minimal supervision but do our systems support this?
