•January 23, 2009 • Leave a Comment

DMS-ites got a fresh insight into the issues of employee motivation and productivity on 22nd January 2009 when Mr. Sandeep Silas was invited by The Hindu Business Line Club to conduct a guest lecture at DMS.

The Hindu Business Line, in association with Indian Overseas Bank, conducted their event in connection with Hindu Business Line Club, “Campus to Corporate”. Mr. Sandeep Silas, Private Secretary, Minister of Labour and Employment, delivered the BL Club Guest Lecture on “Managerial Leadership: Productivity and Motivation” at DMS.

The lecture touched upon the various aspects of how productivity is affected by motivation. Stress was laid on organizational excellence by aligning personal goals with that of the organization. The talk was peppered with anecdotes from the vast experience that Mr. Silas has gained through his years in government service.

The case study at the end provided a glimpse at the thinking prowess of DMS-ites as the esteemed guest was genuinely impressed by the suggestions and ideas that came out of the discussion. It was based on the employee motivation and productivity in Indian Railways.

Mr. Silas has an impressive experience in public sector and government enterprises. A Master in Public Administration from The Maxwell School of Syracuse University, New York, he has worked in various capacities in the Ministry of Railways, Statistics and Program Implementation, Youth Affairs and Sports, Overseas Indian Affair and Tourism and Culture before his current assignment with Ministry of Labour and Employment. The session was attended by senior employees from The Hindu Group as well.

DMS trounces other top North Indian B-Schools in ET Citi Grand Masters…

Anuj and Ashish from DMS might find it tough to hide their smiles. So would others from DMS, for, the two have won the Delhi edition of ET Citi Grand Master Challenge and will represent Delhi Zone at the National Finals at Mumbai!

Teams were FMS and IMT were tied up for the second place. Other teams in the fray were from IIM Indore and Lucknow. All these finalists were selected after a rigorous case study competition as a preliminary round.

After a day of deliberations which took the participants through a bourse game and a debate each, the climax of the day was the quiz, which saw the experts from DMS getting off the mark on the word go. The others were eventually catching up; but finally our guys had the last laugh!!!

When the cumulative results of all the three rounds were announced, the names of the winners were drowned in applause as the enthusiastic crowd was jubiliating. After being thrashed right there on the stage, the winners were showered with congratulations by other DMS-ites. Rest of it will come after Jan 22nd, after the finals!!!

Anyways, many many congrats and all the best to Anuj and Ashish for the National Finals and all their future endeavours. And, to DMS too! We ROCK!
