WhatsApp Group Chat – Do we need to consider Business Ethics to achieve your KRAs?

Sourcing Adda (@SourcingAdda) members who have been active on our WhatsApp Group Chat discussions will know that the topic for the discussion is a continuation of the previous WhatsApp Group Chat that was held where these aspects weren’t the main focus. Based on the discussion we‘ve had we decided to devote an entire discussion on the topic i.e., “do we need to consider business ethics to achieve your KRAs?” which was brought forth by the members of the Delhi group. Along with this we discussed other aspects that were related like –

  • Who defines the ethics for us business or personal?
  • If business defines ethics then should we just follow business ethics?
  • Should we just break the rules and just focus on achieving our KRAS?

And here’s what came up…

WhatsApp Group Chat – What is the Volume of IT hires done through Social media?

Unlike the usual Chats that you come across @SourcingAdda we have taken the initiative to bring together under one umbrella Recruiters and Sourcers from a pan India level. The objective of creating a WhatsApp Group Chat is to help Recruiters & Sourcers interact with each other and stay updated with the latest trends in the Talent Acquisition field. This is possible because we conduct WhatsApp Group Chats in 8 different cities namely Bangalore, Hyderabad, Chennai, Delhi, Mumbai and Pune 1 along with 3 more additions Pune 2, Kolkata and Gujarat.

If you’re not a part of these groups you should make it a point to sign up for them as you are sure to learn a thing or two. More importantly you will be able to connect with thought leaders within the Industry.

Still not convinced then let’s give you more reasons as to why you don’t want to miss them. This time the discussion topic was suggested by our Bangalore group member i.e. Aarthi Devi. The discussion was about, “Can candidates be blacklisted by a company and is it ill-legal for Recruiters to tell the candidate that they are blacklisted if they have absconded.” Therefore let’s find out what views were brought forward and add to our learning.
