Dear Rekha,
It is good to know that you wish to learn something. Please make that something in specifics. Members on this site may provide their assistance on specific items.
There seems to be a conflict within yourself. It is very easy to resolve it. Write down things you do need to learn. Act on one thing at a time. Importanantly ASK.

Hi Rekha,
I think the generalist profile differ from industry to industry. Some job responsibility may be same but not to the extent of 100%. So, it is very imp to define to which industry you belong to? To the knowledge I have, I have inked here.:)

Hi Rekha,
The first job of any employee should be to know about the organization. Hence, I would suggest begin with knowing about your company first-its vision, mission, core values, history, policies & so on. Secondly, learn about your job profile-what was being done before you joined, what are the company's expectations from you, so on & so forth. Also learn what are the different verticals available in your domain i.e. recruitment, training & development, etc. Finally, learn how can your goals be delineated with the company's goal & success is sure to follow! All the best!!!

Hi Rekha,

Congrats for the new job. As a generalist, you will have to know the following before starting your working:
  • About the Company
  • What kind of employees are working ( whether technical or non technical and whis more
  • total employees on the role
  • what kind of candidates you will have to call for employement and what is the source to find them from outside
  • You may discuss in detail with your reporting authority ( and no one mistake you for this - in fact they would be happy to explain about all)
  • R U responsibile for statutory things
  • If your organisation is an Industry and laboures are more, statutory things are little more and you should know when to submit with what information
  • Go thru' the previous returns what are all have been submitted
  • Dealing with Union ( if it is Industry based )
  • If it is software, you should know all the portals where you will have to search for different kind of candidate
  • If you are incharge for salary details, pl. go thru the entire list of previous 2/3 months
  • You should know the leave applicability and its entire rules and regulations
  • You should know how to make company policy...... Listen: Though if it is not under your perview you can inform your boss that you would try. And take the subject from him/her and make a draft policy and show it to him. You will be appreciated if you try this.
As of now this are enough. If you have further doubt pl. mail me to for further clarifications.

:wink: thanks :lol: ramani :smile: bangalore :)

Hi rekha,

Did you ponder any time the meaning of IAS officer is a generalist officer,that he dissolve in any position and trained accordingly...hope u r an MBA hr.

your org might hv briefed you about ur job,if not pse aske ur superior and get the clarity wht they expect of u...

identify wht job is currently performed by it recruitment & wage administration only or any thing else...
do not try to fit into what is already being done variety of jobs generalist u could be in organisational development to any any sphere. make your goals clear write it down..take help from your peers, out line the action plant to achieve it...i always feel an mba hr has to be very creative ,follow a distinctive action plan ,to acheive the target if u reqrd trg,aske the org to impart u one so that u can ultimately help the org...above all be customer focused all employee are internal customer..the best person who could value add and provide delight to the employees (ur customers)..

right rekha.....good begining think to become ceo rather head hr...every thing falls in place for generalist hr...
