“KSHITIJ” the flagship event of XIMAHR, the HR Association of Xavier University will be held on 18th August 2017

Bhubaneswar: “KSHITIJ”, the flagship event of XIMAHR, the HR Association of Xavier University will be held on 18th August 2017. Every year, eminent leaders from the field of HR/IR come under one roof to talk on a topic of vital importance to the HR Fraternity of the country and enlighten the inquisitive minds of the batches.

The topic for the event KSHITIJ 2K17 is “GIG ECONOMY AND THE CONTIGENT WORKFORCE – HR and workplace of the future”.

The buzz around the gig economy – the so-called “Uberfication” of work – has been growing louder in recent months so much so that it had even made its way into a speech by 2016 US presidential candidate Hillary Clinton – where she aired concerns over what this growing hiring trend could mean for workers. Although this move to the gig economy undoubtedly poses numerous organisational challenges, it also provides HR with a great opportunity to add value to the organisation – which is what brings us all here, Kshitij 2017!

The panelist for the KSHITIJ 2K17 are:

MAHARANA RAY – General Manager, HR BAJAJ Auto Ltd.


ANKITA PODDAR – HR Business Partner, Amazon

IMDAD ALI– CHRM, Tata Steel Kalinganagar
