I work for a large Power Company.. We conduct program for HR for line mnanagers on regular basis as part of our commitment to build strong interface of HR with line managers and also to develop line managers as HRD managers who also take active interest for development of their people.

Role of line managers and their need for being an HRD manager also for better productivity and organisational effectiveness.
Communication : the tool of building teams & managing change
