Human resources and RA

While browsing the web in search of literature for a research study, I came across a job ad, which asked for “hardcore RA skills”. I was momentarily wondering if RA evolved into something akin to the pleasure industry! Another job ad asked for a CA qualification coupled with solid telecommunication network experience. The role responsibilities suggested that certain IT development skills would be an advantage. Now that is a mouthful for 1 person to contribute to a RA Management position.

My contribution to this group is in field of HR and OD practices applicable to sustainable RA.  We will be discussing ideal role profiles; knowledge, skills and abilities (KSA’s) required; recruitment practices and RA personnel performance management.

The objective is to debate a number of assumptions held which may or may not be valid. Please invite non-RA people to participate in these discussions as well. A review of general recruitment practices may highlight solutions to specific issues plaguing operators and RA consulting firms.
