We all know that companies worldwide are fighting hard to hire and retain top talent. Finding out right talent in company in time with budget is a big challenge for HR , now a day.

In addition to keeping up with the latest trends in technology, businesses today must also plan and implement creative HR ideas or they risk being left behind.

From hiring new employees efficiently, onboarding them enthusiastically, training them strategically and engaging all employees thoughtfully, there are many opportunities to stand out with creative HR practices.

So, let’s take a look at some of the most unique and innovative HR practices that top companies around the world have implemented.

1. Want to Keep Your Best Employees? Offer Them Cash to Quit

When it comes to hiring and firing, there is a sort of unwritten rule that most companies must hire quickly and fire slowly.

But the shoe and accessories e-tailer Zappos swears by the opposite – they claim that the most harm actually comes from hiring mistakes. Their own past hiring mistakes have cost them well over $100 million dollars.

So they came up with a unique solution. During the initial training of a new employee, Zappos offers to pay them for any time spent training plus one month’s salary – and all they have to do is to quit. Only a small percentage of the newbies take the offer, but the committed employees stay and continue to provide the exceptional customer service that the company is famous for.

This approach isn’t limited to just Zappos. Amazon also started their own Pay to Quit program. Amazon’s employees get this offer once a year, the first an offer for $2000 with annual increases of $1000 each year after that, with a maximum of $5000.

2/ pizza meeting :

pizza meeting of shall be of 9 minutes and 9 people. There is a vehicle which could be paddle by one person. It could be move in campus or corporate house. Eg. Google have introduce it. Meeting is pre- fixed with 9 minutes timeline.

in house mentor :

Approximately 30% workers in America are now millennials, according to Howe and Strauss.

The Deloitte Millennial Survey 2016 showed that millennials who plan to stay 5+ years at a company are twice as likely to have a mentor. This study only confirms what we already know in our hearts: When a manager is involved in their team member’s training and development, they’re much more likely to stay longer.
A study in the Academy of Management Journal showed that when people starting a new job have a higher level of support, they’re more positive and more productive

If we go by the results of a UC Berkeley psychology professor who examined NBA games for 8 months and concluded that high fives actually played a part in helping teams win, then this practice seems like a great return on the (almost non-existing) investment.


retention as big challenge.

One example of this is company-sponsored fitness classes. Alexa Von Tobel, Founder and CEO of LearnVest, offers a gym class to her employees at the start of the work day.

Other perks include endless vacation time and flexible time off – employers are finally realizing that employees do not choose to be sick, injured, or stuck in traffic. Life happens. ( Salary, bonuses, free transportation, and insurance benefits are just a few of the items in a classic remuneration package –)


performance system.

All the evaluation, feedback and performance appraisal systems are fail and neat to be forget for life time.Only one to one and coaching and mentoring method works with continuous improvement in performance.

Instead, try this: T.H.I.N.K and be S.M.A.R.T. Stay focused and compassionate during the feedback discussion (with an emphasis on discussion) by asking yourself the following questions: “Is it True?”, “Helpful?”, “Inspiring?”, “Necessary?” and “Is what I’m about to say Kind?”.

When providing feedback, make sure it’s: Specific, Measurable, Actionable, Relevant and Timely.


keep work place re decorative and restructure.

A few alternate ideas include unassigned workstations, getting rid of private offices, and increased connectivity – as the real estate giant CBRE recently discovered after relocating to a more creative working space.

In their internal survey, 83% of employees reported feeling more productive from working collaboratively in a smaller space.


musical approach :

I had seen musical system in diamond industry. It works very well. I have also seen in Dairy industry , that cows work very well while offering milk to farmer.

Musics play vital role in life.Specially, employees who are more sharp with audible skills they prefer it much more.

Privacy is a right .

Make sure that privacy is not disturb.No body likes that privacy is disturb and found mood less. Slowly lose enthusiasm and energy level found at an average level.

Constructive environment play vital role and that covers very much work space, freshness, easy movements and inspiring breaks which add energy every time.
