I’ve noticed that HP invests more and more in their human resources. As I know, they plan to open this year a new headquarters in Romania with over 1.500 empleyees while in India they already have an army of engineers working. The news below comes from India where this January HP implemented a new job portal in Himachal Pradesh (part of a strategic programme). This is a very interesting move for HP as they usally use the global website for recruiting:
Shri Virbhadra Singh, Chief Minister, Himachal Pradesh, dedicated Job Portal of the Labour and Employment Department to the employers and job seekers in the State. The software for the Job Portal has been developed by the NIC Himachal Pradesh State Centre.
Under this unique initiative, the employers in Himachal Pradesh will no longer have to wait for weeks together for getting names of eligible candidates sponsored by the Central Employment Cell of the Department of Labour and Employment. They can select candidates with requisite qualifications and experience through the Job Portal. The job-seekers too will get information from the Internet about vacancies available in various companies and organizations in Himachal Pradesh. The process of compulsory notification under the Employment Exchange (CNV) Act has thus been made web enabled. Now, the entire database of all the semi-skilled, skilled and highly skilled job-seekers throughout the State is being made available on this portal irrespective of the preference exercised by a candidate. This will give a much wider selection field to all the employers. In addition to this, unemployed youth will also be provided a web interface to register themselves for being picked up by the employers directly for a selection process. Candidates can also apply directly after seeing availability of vacancies on the Job Portal.
The Chief Minister lauded the efforts of the National Informatics Centre and HP Information Technology Department and in bringing about IT revolution in a large number of departments and organisations. He honoured the officers and IT professionals from the National Informatics Centres, HP Labour & Employment Department and HP IT Department, who have been involved in the mammoth task of system study, process re-engineering, software development, hardware procurement & installation, training, data entry and implementation.
