Program Overview:

The centrality of customer in organization’s success cannot be overemphasized. In the competitive world where any differentiation edge gets neutralized quickly, more and more organizations are enhancing customer value by adding service component to their products. Today we have very few successful pure product companies. Further the frontline sales and services employees become the important source of customer voice which can shape the organizational strategies. Even within, the organizations have tried to develop service culture with the concept of internal customer. Therefore employees’ customer orientation is critical across product, service, and manufacturing organizations. Human capital becomes very critical in implementing customer oriented strategies. In some industries like services industry it becomes all the more critical because of the real time interaction between “frontline employee” and customer for the production and consumption of the service. This program takes the customer oriented view about managing human resources in manufacturing, services, and sales organizations. Because of the centrality of customer in services, it has large service industry component. The program tries to address important issues of acquisition, retention, and management of talent and knowledge. It also deals with specific issues of representative industries like healthcare, IT/outsourcing, financial services/professional services, sales, and manufacturing.

Learning Experience:

The overall course - EPHRM, was designed and co-ordinated perfectly. In all there were 6 modules, covering core HRM topics as well as strategy, general management and a final integration module at campus. The delivery mechanism at Hughes was near flawless and going through this one year program has been an overall enriching experience, over and above the valuable certification. The course design comprising literature, case studies, exams and project was as ehaustive as any; and IIM-C's deep rooted heritage and excellence in academics was a significant value add.
Hughes Begumpet Centre in Hyderabad was excellent in terms of both technical and administrative support. There were negligible technical glitches and the staff were always ready on hand to sort any small issues that did come up. The ambience, lighting and air conditioning was indeed conducive to the learning experience.

The staff at Begumpet Hyderabad were ever friendly and helpful; with timely SMS updates and and always open to suggestions. Technical services was near faultless and kudos to the team for maintaining quality.
