Hence, such information must not be used for any other purpose except for academic use. Being aware of a project regarding its factuality and authenticity, I have tried my best to perform my task. All the information mentioned here throughout the project is true to the best of my knowledge.

  4. 4. PREFACE This project highlights the engagement activities undertaken by organizations to attract highly talented students across B-Schools in India. Organizations are grappling with issues such as high attrition rate, disengaged workforce and many organizations are unable to find the right talent or highly talented individuals can’t be afforded. Employer branding plays a very important role to solve these issues as it helps organizations to project a better image and attempts to eradicate all myths and fads about the industry and the organization. Campus Engagement Program is a sub-set of Employer Banding and it helps organizations attract and retain best talent from B-Schools. This project is a part of my summer internship project at SBI Life and the intention was to understand the some of the best practices across different industries and also gauge what students feel about these programs. I hope you enjoy reading this report. Prem Kumar Pankaj Mumbai
  5. 5. ACKNOWLEDGEMENT “In my deepest darkest moments, what really got me through was a prayer. Sometimes my prayer was “help me’. Sometimes my prayer was ‘thank you’.

  7. 7. CH. 1- EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Organizations are grappling with issues of high attrition rate, reduced productivity and disengaged Gen Y workforce. Same tonic used 5 years before won’t be helpful for issues pertaining to millennials. According to a study conducted by Deloittee and HUL, they are different and should be treated differently. Organizations have identified Campus Engagement Programs as a powerful tool to engage students across campuses. These programs not only help them in building an employer brand, but it also helps them in attracting and retaining the right candidates from such campuses. Such programs can be tested for the reliability on various parameters which can be decided by respective organizations from time to time. SBI Life is a prominent recruiter from Tier II (+) B-Schools in India and it is planning to build a strong employer brand and strengthen connect with students at campuses from which it recruits. For this purpose a study was conducted in 2 phases. One was meant for HR Managers and the other for the students. The idea was to understand what form of campus engagement program is popular among students and HR Managers and how can we use this inference/analysis to build a robust campus engagement program for SBI Life.
  8. 8. CH. 2- INTRODUCTION Campus Engagement Programs are the emerging trend in Recruitment and Employer Branding these days. By means of these programs organizations try to create a better picture of themselves as an employer across various campuses that they are targeting. This could be undertaken for various purposes-  To attract highly talented students from B-Schools  Employer Branding  To be able to recruit from Tier I colleges in India  Reducing attrition rates among the college recruits. Campus Engagement/Connect Recruiting and retaining the right talent at the right time is a herculean task for recruiters. Old methods have lost their charm in attracting Generation Y. Building relationship and rapport with students and their respective campuses is not easy and takes a lot of time which must be administered on a regular basis. Organizations have deployed robust Campus Connect Programs which ensure that students have them at top of the list while they think of a job. It can help recruiters hit two birds with one stone Benefits to an Employer-  Stronger brand visibility and recognition  Attract and hire from a highly talented lot of students. Benefits to students-  Allows them to connect with culture of the company from level zero  Helps them to compare other recruiters while selection How we recruit champions? #STEP-1 Requisition- Man Power Planning It is important to identify the number of vacancies before we initiate a process. It is done by identifying present vacancies, future requirements and current business contingencies/. These figures are provided to us by various channel/vertical heads.
  9. 9. #STEP 2 Supplier Identification- What should be in mind while selecting campuses? 1 CRISIL Ratings 2 NAAC Ratings 3 Rapport with Placement Cell 4 Past Experience #STEP 3 Contacting Colleges and Opening Positions At this stage, we fix a date during placement season and open positions based on a match between requirements of individual departments and skill sets of the students. #STEP 4 Selection Process- It is a 3 step process which includes- 1. Aptitude Test 2. GD Round 3. Personal Interview #STEP 5 Deployment- Decision is based on the comments given by panellists on Interview Assessment Sheet and skill sets of the selected candidates. # Pre and Post Recruitment Initiatives- Presently, SBIL is involved in both pre and post recruitment engagement activities. Prior to recruiting students SBIL invites students for an interaction (Pre-Placement Talk) where the senior executives of the company answer questions from students related to any aspect of SBIL. SBIL is an extended family for its employees. All newly recruited students are pampered by the company. Right from sending journals, goodies to wishing them before examinations; SBIL does it all. Why are we doing this? A strong campus connect program would engage students, build stronger relationships and would act as a recruiting multiplier. Presently all initiatives are at personal front which other students are not aware of. We are working towards strengthening our ties with campuses to communicate better with students and motivate them to work with us. This would in turn make us the preferred job destination amidst students. This research would help SBIL to identify what other organizations are doing in this context and how can SBIL learn from such practices and implement a full proof and robust plan that enhances the image of SBIL as an employer at campuses. Creating a tailor-made program and implementing it properly will mark the beginning of SBIL’s success story.
  10. 10. How to go about it? To understanding what can benefit us and how it should be implemented; we must embark on a journey of research that involves interviewing/ one-on-one interaction with Change Champions across 4-5 industries and 10 or more companies. Such interactions will help us identify what they are doing in context of Campus Connect Programs and how are they being benefited from such initiates. After this we need to talk to students across campuses who have heard of companies taking such initiative and how they have been motivated to join such companies. This would involve primary research based on questionnaires and/or interactions with our stakeholders. Sample space would be the organizations that have engaged themselves in such initiatives and students across campuses, looking for jobs. It would also involve secondary research and review of literature which will help us to answer and clarify challenging research conundrums. In the end data will be collated and analysed. Based on the analysis, suggestion would be made to strengthen the campus connect program- ASCEND.

  14. 14. CH. 5- RESEARCH METHODOLOGY This project revolves around students and HR managers who handle campus engagement programs in different organizations. The entire research has been split into these 2 distinct components. The project involves a lot of field visits/ interactions with HR Managers and students to collect data. For HR Managers; one-on-one interviews were scheduled for close to 20 HR Mangers from different organizations. Out of these, 10 responses were elicited in total. Out of these 10 responses only 9 added value. The research covered 7 industries. For the students; links for the questionnaire on google forms was sent through email and WhatsApp. Only for NMIMS; questionnaire was physically handed over to the co-ordinator. The research was done over students from 8 different institutes in India. A total of 154 meaningful responses were received. Students under study belonged to 5 different specializations and 4 different courses. No project is complete without secondary research. For this purpose, I have searched for articles related to Employer Branding on hbr.org and Forbes. Research on my topic is not available and it is perceived differently in other countries. The final analysis had been derived using MS Excel and suggestions are given based on my analysis.

  30. 30. CH. 7- RECOMMENDATION HR Managers prefer Lecture Series because- 1) Easy to execute 2) Very little investment of time and money 3) Can be customized easily Case study is not popular because- 1) Expensive to execute 2) Involvement of teams- Inter-department activity 3) Rewards and Promotions are a must 4) Lots of Planning is involved Lecture series ranks 5th among students and 1st among HR Managers. It is not very successful because- 1) Thy are planned on Saturdays and Sundays 2) They reward less and punish more. 3) Students are never interested to attend lectures. 4) It should be combined with SLI’s to make it more engaging. 5) They are less competitive. Case Study is the most favoured amidst Students because- 1) Offer Internships to the winners 2) Students want competitive programs 3) Cash Prize and PPO a motivating factor B-plan and Quiz show similar trends. Suggestions- 1) Gamified lecture/ Interactive sessions using multi-media in form of quiz 2) Classroom simulations can be used to replicate B-Plan competitions. Since, the preferences of both, HR Managers/ Organizations and students are not similar so we have to equate both sides by adding or deleting components of respective references to derive a coherent conclusion.
