The recruitment and selection of staff is one of the most important activities carried out by our human resource department to ensure high quality patient care. We recognize that highly skilled, experienced and motivated staff is essential to enable us to deliver our healthcare services and are committed to ensuring the recruitment and selection of staff is undertaken in an efficient manner. Vacancies, as and when they arise are advertised and candidates are thereafter shortlisted for interviews. While short listing candidates, certain criteria, such as job requirements, skill mix, educational qualification and experience are considered. We also undertake pre-employment checks and enter into employment contracts wherever required.
We also gather feedback from exit interviews, which provide valuable insights into how to improve the recruitment, induction and retention of new employees.
We believe that training of our doctors and other medical staff is essential in order to maintain the quality of care we strive to offer to our patients. We regularly organise conferences and workshops for our doctors and medical staff, as well as the healthcare professionals outside our network of hospitals. In February 2016, we organised an international symposium on hepatology advances in liver transplants in association with Indian National Association for Study of the Liver, where leading doctors from USA, UK and Singapore presented their cases. In December 2015, we organised a live epilepsy surgery workshop and symposium in association with the Neurological Society of India and the Brain and Spine Society of India and in September 2015, we organised a Cancer Summit in association with the Association of Surgeons of India, Indian Menopause Society and the Obstetric & Gynaecological Society of Hyderabad.
