Buddy Programme Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Buddy process document
    Presented by : Sai Prasad,HRGO
  • 2. WHY DO WE NEED A “BUDDY PROGRAM”
    Initial few days of any new entrant is the most critical. It is the level of comfort & ease of adjustment that an associate experiences in the initial few days that determine to a great extent how s/he views him/herself with the organization. This in turn has a great impact on the feeling of well-being of working in Hewlett Pakcard. So if a new associate's feeling of well-being is good/positive, then there is high probability that s/he will be more productive & a willing team contributor and stay on longer with Hewlett Pakcard.
