Hi Deepa, what differences do you see between the corporate world and the Air Force work environment?

Hi! Pallavy. Happy women's Day. To be honest, I don't see much difference between the corporate world and the Indian Air Force (IAF) environment as far as people, their needs, aspirations are concerned. However as an HR professional the tools available to me and the challenges are in corporate world are different from the tools IAF gave me. In Air Force, people join you with long term perspective. They know exiting would not be easy but they still make that choice because of multiple reasons - job security, benefits, a big brand name and most important because they feel connected to the purpose/vision of the IAF which is to protect the Indian Skies. Annual hikes are fixed so money cannot be used as a motivator and inspite of that retention is not a challenge. People very strongly identify with the organisation, feel proud of it and have deep emotional connect. In corporate world associations are shorter, emotional connect is low, retention is a challenge hence hiring consumes most of your time, money is a big motivator to get talent in and retain it. Most corporate organisations are struggling to allign individual goals with organisational goals, to form deeper bonds with employees, to show them the larger picture, to help them grow within the organisation etc... Hope this answers your question. Regards
