“We need to generate new management ideas for the younger generation,” said Prof DoS in Commerce, University of Mysore, said Dr G Kotreshwar.
Delivering the inaugural address at the one-day national seminar organised by Basudev Somani College on the topic ‘Issues and Challenges of Global Work Place- Destination-2020’ Dr G Kotreshwar emphasised on how to empower the work force and spoke on the Japanese ideologies at the work place.
He said: “The major question every Indian has is when would India become a developed nation. Though many programmes have been initiated in India it is still being considered as a developing nation. A bigger mission called ‘Make in India’ was introduced by our Prime Minister Narendra Modi to make India the global power. But the major key for the success of Make in India programme is ‘Skill India’ which is about transforming the human wealth into a productive resource.”
“Globalisation is bound to change the landscape of every management function which can affect human resource management making it much more difficult. Talent management, training the traders, creating global leaders, managing highly diversified work force are the need of the hour that can address the challenges of the global work place,” he said.
“Japanese ideology says a happy worker is a productive worker and they concentrate on empowering the work force. The issue of global work place can be addressed by making the work place more challenging for self realisation,” he added.
Delivering the keynote address Prof and Head of Department of Commerce Periyar University Dr Elangovan said: “In the name of innovation, development, research and technology we have been against the nature and have harmed it. In a few years, we would end up having virtual offices and our homes would be our work place. It is high time to redefine the entire concept of human resource, account practices, management, commerce field and build environmental account practices.”
