Human Resource Development

Parmarth Samaj Sevi Sansthan owes its genesis to a strong belief that caring and capable people – rather than material resources – are crucial in accelerating the process of social development in our country. Parmarth’s Human Resource Development Unit was set up with the core agenda of ensuring that young, educated and experienced people with empathy and the desire to effect positive changes in the lives of others are recruited, nurtured, and placed in grassroots projects.

Parmarth’s internal HRD processes and programmes were developed gradually and systematically. The initial focus was on recruitment, induction, and early training of new entrants. We also focus on developing mechanisms to systematically build competencies among our professional staff.

Parmarth’s structure has been designed to provide space for self-expression to each professional staff’s desire to work for a super-ordinate goal. At all levels, strong integration is ensured with processes of mentorship, peer review, structured training inputs and collective leadership to equip individuals to respond to changing field problems and role demands.

In the last few years, the Parmarth’s HRD unit has developed a broad framework to provide development professionals with necessary inputs to gear up for life and role transitions. The in–career programme focuses on enhancing human, technical and conceptual capabilities required by each role in the four broad arenas of work, viz. personal application and growth, grassroots transformation, organisation roles, and building strategic alliances. Programmes are designed to help professional staff acquire the necessary capabilities to play their roles more effectively as well as to create systematic opportunities, exposure, and training for executives to make the transition to assume bigger responsibilities.
