How to Resurrect the content on HRLINK ?

Dear Members,

HRLINK is one of the most popular professional networking sites around. I have been here for more than 4+ years. I have had my sabbaticals from it, but I kept coming back. When I came back this time, I found very less activity, very less number of active members. This in spite of having probably the largest number of members in India. I think we can do better than this. HRLINK is one of the very few democratically run sites which has always sought and encouraged suggestions from members and implemented them in principle. I am sure we can make this what it was before.

Can I request you to suggest ways to get back to our Glory days ?



I go first:

Let us do away with spammers and marketers. I found some people openly offering to share naukri and monster passwords in public forums. Lets show them the door.

I recall, that I used to feel "home-sick", the day I did not login into HR-link !

I have logged in after a long long time......& I am glad that am back! :)

This is the place that I had found some amazing professionals, who turned into very good friends....

my humble suggestions:
- To use the "Share" option for the useful topics that we read/reply with other members
- As Harish mentioned to report the spam that sometimes pollutes this forum.
- Share real time & first hand experience, questions and doubts, instead of copy-pasting from other sites/forums.

Let us make HR-Link, a place where every HR would love to join! :)

Cheers,
Diana

Thanks Harish !
Am glad to be back ! :)

Also, what I noticed was there are many topics that have been posted, but only to "promote" a training/software/meeting... ofcourse HR related :)

However, probably we should have a separate section for such posts. This would help us to find the topics that are debatable much easier.

I came across some interesting headings, but when I checked on them, they were just promoting an institute or training program.

Dear Admin, please help us clean up the forums :)

Cheers,
Diana

hi harish,

hrlink is so useful to the career starting hr guyz.

i want share my opinions regarding topic "How to Resurrect the content on HRLINK ?"

1.may be by the help of hr link some of the job seekers succeeded in their job search : my suggestion is,mention those persons names and their designations and the person who is the source helped that particular job seekers.it will boost the job seekers traffic to the hr link.those traffic turned into hardcore fans by the experts topics.

2.I am a job seeker having quires in some hr areas,like me lot of learners tired of searching hr topics.by hr link those needy candidates stayed in touch with experts like you.
please provide material regarding hr areas particularly practical oriented industrial/organization structured on daily basis course in hrlink.

Hi Sri Jayakumar,
This is a good suggestion. Thanks for the same.
I have helped quite a few people get placed in the past. But since it is in our profession, we do not keep track of such things. I am sure there are others too on this site who helped each other, not just freshers, but also experienced members get placed.
Important thing to remember is that we need to maintain this forum in the utmost professional way and ensure we share our knowledge by following the highest of professional ethics, like not copy pasting contents, being polite with fellow members, debating rather than arguing, etc.
Regards,
Harish

A very good initiative Harish. Guess all the members who used to be very active, should come together again in resurrecting the our own HRLink. I am personally indebted to the site, as I came across best of people, who not only became good friends but also were and are very helpful in times through thick and thin. I was referred by Harish to the Organization in which I am presently working. Likewise there are many members who have shown and given opportunities to many. Hope the ones who got helped are in return helping others in need.

And I back the opinions and suggestions given by Diana and Harish. As well I would like to add that all the once active members should nominated to become moderators and should concentrate in clearing the spam and unwanted articles entering into the site. And contributing as well as encouraging good HR articles which can be their real life work experiences too.

Keep Smiling.

Hi Harish,
I missed your post until today but I am glad you've decided to try to revive this site.
I have tried this myself several times and asked some of my friends from HRLink to help me by being present/active here. I am not an HR professional and therefore it is difficult for me to initiate this, but there are many good professionals who can do it by posting on HR Forums, giving their opinions, their insights, helping others, increasing the quality of the posts and reporting spam/advertizing campaigns.
I am thinking that you: Harish, Dee, Sri Manjari, RK, Sudarshan, Vinod, Pradeep, Nimali etc...can make this become again the site we all remember and respect so much.

Hey Guys,

Even it's been a long time for me too. I used to be a active member and often i visit hr link. There were lot of discussions, postings and i too feel the same way that the site has been dried. Yes we need to do something to get back to the older days :)

Hi!!

Good to see you back.. (Rather I was also not active for long...!)

I must congratulate you on behalf of all, for stsrting a thread which was the need of hour to regain the status of this site.

I will not go in details of what has made us to stay away from this site... We all know it and the instincts are all common.

I would like to suggest one simple step to restructure the site is

"We should be more and more active on this site with really valuable topics for discussion among us."

We will put our thoughts bin action with real life examples, than ideal cases.
This will help to:
1. Rebrushing the thought process
2. Knowledge sharing and validating the concepts
3. Reduction in wastge of time for reading and commenting on really non relvant posts.
