The state capital will host a conclave on “unrest in workforce”, from Thursday, more than two months after Ranchi resident Avinash Kumar Dev (49) was killed in violence at Maruti Suzuki India Limited’s Manesar plant.

The two-day conclave will be organised by Indian Institute of Management, Ranchi, the only IIM that has a dedicated course on human resource management.

Sources at the business cradle said Maruti group chairman R.C. Bhargava had confirmed his participation.

Among the other speakers likely to be present are Petronet LNG Limited CEO and MD A.K. Balyan, Tata Steel MD H.M. Nerurkar, General Motors India Vice President (HR) Vikas Shirodkar, PwC Consulting executive director (consulting) Padmaja Alaganandan, Raymond president (human resources) K.A. Narayan and RPG Enterprises senior vice-president (HR) Amit Das.

IIM-Ranchi public relations cell in-charge Gurtej Singh Chopra said the programme would be an attempt to get various HR leaders under one roof and provide them a platform for interaction.

“The conclave will aim to discuss the changing dynamics of human resource management and increasing unrest in the workforce,” Chopra said.

Among the topics slated for discussion were dissonance in workforce, work-life balance, technology for human resource management, conflict management, compensation policies, strategy alignment and innovation in labour laws.
