HR Consultant | Storyteller | Trainer | Writer | Ghostwriter

Irrespective of the product or service you sell, success will be yours only when you embrace people-centricity. With amazing talent available all across the globe, if you can create a meaningful experience for people, they will certainly want to work with you. With 'The Great Resignation', people demand a lot more from employers. And this is where I can help. With 18+ years of experience in HR and HR consulting roles across the globe, I can help you power up your HR function to create magic for the entire organization. I have worked with leading companies such as Accenture, Deloitte and Aon in senior HR/OD roles, before starting off as an independent consultant and a writer as well. (Apart from regular blogs and articles, there's a book on the way too!) Some of the areas I specialize in are: 1. Setting up HR systems: Starting with the articulation of an organization's vision, mission and values to creating employee handbooks, creating organization structures, manpower plans, organization scorecards, and creating HR policy/process handbooks, I have helped startups in covering this part of the journey 2. Employee Experience & Wellbeing: I have helped clients in creating award-winning employee engagement strategies and have done multiple successful projects on wellbeing as well. 3. Writing & Research: I have written numerous blog posts and articles about a variety of leadership topics and am working on a book project as well. Some of my work has been published in various forums and a lot of my individual posts on LinkedIn are trending posts. 4. Leadership & Capability Development: I am a trained personality coach and have conducted leadership assessments, as well as coaching journeys for C-suite executives. I am also a Founding Member of the Josh Bersin Academy, and have been recognized among the top 25 global learners of the Academy. I'm a lifelong learner and I like to keep myself abreast of the latest research and books written in my areas of interest. Overall, my experience in advising C-suite executives, coupled with strong writing skills and storytelling puts me in pole position to work on projects that involve Consulting, learning/HR strategy, coaching and leadership, and LinkedIn profile design. I do my best work with opportunities that involve collaboration to create high-impact output. I prefer to collaborate on projects where quality is much more important than time/cost. Thank you for reading this far. If you are ready to create some magic, let's get started! Cheers, Sumit

"Freelancer contacted my job and essentially got me fired."

"I tried contacting the client multiple times - through Upwork as well as through LinkedIn for over a week. However, I did not get any response. Finally, I wrote to her workplace, trying to ascertain if she was genuinely ok or if she was in a difficult situation and needing help. I had worked on her brief but did not want to bill her for more hours without talking to her. So, not only am I losing 10 hours of billable time, but also getting poor feedback and being made to feel guilty about her 'being fired' without it being my fault."

The client is one of the largest universities in India with a strong online presence. They wanted me to conduct a webinar on how their students could prepare better for Jobs 2.0 in a post-Covid scenario. I created the presentation deck and conducted the webinar, which was attended by over 1000 people, and obtained some phenomenal feedback.

The client wanted to present an approach to her senior stakeholders about how to revamp her Employee Engagement Strategy, and present a better action plan. I helped her design a clear and visual set of slides to sell this better to her leadership. She was delighted with the output and it helped her get her leaders to go ahead with the revised approach.
