AeroSoft Corp Indore has not Appointed any Placement firm to Hire or Accept Money for Placements.

Some Fraud and Cheaters are Spoiling AeroSoft Name and Hiring 

Please Note that AeroSoft Corp Indore has not Appointed any Placement firm to Hire or Accept Money for Placements.

Jobs and lottery frauds. Beware !

Job offers from the AeroSoft Name 

The AeroSoft, does not send unsolicited emails with job offers - either direct or through agents. AeroSoft vacancies are advertised on official Blogs or websites in  India.

All AeroSoft vacancies are filled through a competitive process managed by our Human Resources section. You will never be approached directly by the AeroSoft
 with an offer of a job.

Some job scams falsely use the names and job titles of genuine AeroSoft staff. A genuine email from an official member of staff will always be sent from our official email address - @aerosoft.in 
It will never be sent from a hotmail, gmail or yahoo type free email account.

If the offer sounds too good to be true…beware. It could be a scam.
Many people in India are being cheated with job offers and lotteries that do not exist. Stop and think before you part with your money, your passport, your personal details or your current job.

Many scams may appear to come from the UK, but the criminals behind the scam are actually based in other countries.

It is likely to be a scam if:

You receive an offer of a job about which you have no prior knowledge
You receive an offer by email
You are asked for your bank account details by email or phone
You are offered cash in exchange for bank account details
You are told you have won a lottery, but you have not bought a ticket.
If you receive a scam email:
Do not pay any money

Why is Less Hiring and More Firing :(




                                                      

If you are working in the private sector, which most of the population does today, you have every chance to get thrown from your job and it may happen that you think you are fired without any apparent reason. Well, if it is so, think again, nothing happens without a reason. There are so many reasons you can be fired from your job, may be not all of the reasons are very strong but there are many reasons strong enough to make you walk out of your office. If you do not want to be one of them there are few things you need to keep in mind that why are people thrown out of their jobs? So, mentioned below are the top ten reasons why people are thrown out of their jobs. Have a look and make sure you are not practicing any of these to ensure your position at your workplace. Here we go:





                                        



1. The late comer

From your school days you are being taught to be punctual. But have you ever wondered why they forced to it so much? May be to save you from being fired from your job in the future? Nah? Yes, we are not kidding. It is one of the reasons you can get fired from the job. Not many of the companies prefer a late comer. Yes they do penalize you by charging a sum of your salary but that’s not enough every time. If you are late every now and then you have a fair chance of being fired from your job. So better set your alarm a little earlier.

2. Always gossiping



All work and no play make jack a dull boy. That’s true but if you are playing and gossiping around during office hours you probably aren’t a good enough employee to be preserved by the firm. If you keep gossiping around it not only involves your time but your co-workers time as well which is not at all acceptable by the employer. You are involving others in the gossip and the work suffers. So save your talks for the lunch time or after work to get saved from thrown out of the company.


3. The misbehaving one



Are you angry about the fight you had with your wife in the morning? Well, better keep that anger inside you until office hours get over because your co-workers are not here to bear your anger. And it can even get you fired from the job. Everybody around you has some issues in their lives but they can’t always show it around and shout at people. Also flirting with your co-workers is a big no. If one of them complaints about you to the management you are fired for sure because this is not tolerable at all in the present scenario.
                                              
                                                  

4. Stealing office property



Stealing is a sin. Even if you are stealing office stationary there’s no other word invented to it but stealing. Be it small or big things if you are taking your office property home without prior permission you are stealing it. Don’t take it as lightly as it seems, if the management comes to know about it, it’s a serious threat to your job. Now a day’s hardly any office is without cameras and you are continuous under camera surveillance while on job so if you think you would not be caught you are mistaken. Don’t risk your job fir these petty thefts, it affects your reputation in the firm as well.

5. Drunk at work



A drunkard is preferred nowhere. In the bars may be, but nowhere else. Even at your home you can be made to sleep in the sofa if you are drunk. Office is no exception. Moreover it’s strictly prohibited. Office is a sophisticated place and a workplace is meant to maintain decorum. If you are drunk at work no one around is going to like it and it’s not tolerable. Most probably you they are going to complaint it to the boss as the females can see your behaviour as a threat.

6. Always on leave



If you are on leave every now and then enjoying at home or going out completely forgetting your responsibilities towards the company, the company may pay back by firing you from your job. They appointed you for some designated work and if you are always on leave, they are going to replace you soon. So next time you feel like escaping under your blanket for the whole day, think again you can risk your job for a day in the blanket.


                       

7. Doing personal work during work hours



When you are sitting at your office table you know well why you are being paid for. You are definitely not paid for sitting comfortably in the air conditioned office and enjoying free calls from your office. So making long personal calls all throughout the day is one of the reasons you can get fired from the work. Also, instead of using the computer and internet for personal uses is a strict no. If you think you would not be caught you are mistaken. They have all the records of the phone lines and internet surfing so if you want to save yourself from the trouble save your personal works for your home.

8. Stealing clients of the company



Stealing clients is one of the most unethical things in business. If you are working as an employee in a company and going on with some side business in the same field and using the company’s contacts to spread your business, it’s not as great as you think it to be. If the company comes to know about it which has a food probability, you are screwed. Not only you are fired from the job, it brings disgrace to you as well. So, even if you are in a business be ethical enough to manage both things honestly.

9. Back biting about the boss



Bitching about the boss is not as great an idea as it is considered by you. May be the person to whom you are bitching about the boss is the one who may go to the boss and open your chits. If the boss comes to know about what’s going around you are in trouble. The next step is most probably a good bye to the company.

                            

10. Poor Performance



The company appointed you for some service which you are expected to provide to the company. After all you are being paid for it. Laziness is not acceptable at all. If you are appointed with some responsibilities you are supposed to do it in the right manner. If one day work is being done in a week or if you are unable to meet the deadlines, you have nothing to do in the company. The company will soon get a replacement of you if it goes on for long. Poor performance is not tolerable in any firm and the top reason for anyone to get fired from the company.

CSR Means Corporate Social Responsibility

 


  
Corporate Social Responsibility  [ CSR ] is the continuing commitment by business to behave ethically and contribute to economic development while improving the quality of life of the workforce and their families as well as of the local community and society at large
The same report gave some evidence of the different perceptions of what this should mean from a number of different societies across the world. Definitions as different as CSR is about capacity building for sustainable livelihoods. It respects cultural differences and finds the business opportunities in building the skills of employees, the community and the government from Ghana, through to CSR is about business giving back to society from the Phillipines.
                                                   

Traditionally in the United States, CSR has been defined much more in terms of a philanphropic model. Companies make profits, unhindered except by fulfilling their duty to pay taxes. Then they donate a certain share of the profits to charitable causes. It is seen as tainting the act for the company to receive any benefit from the giving.

The European model is much more focused on operating the core business in a socially responsible way, complemented by investment in communities for solid business case reasons. Personally, I believe this model is more sustainable because:

Social responsibility becomes an integral part of the wealth creation process - which if managed properly should enhance the competitiveness of business and maximise the value of wealth creation to society.
When times get hard, there is the incentive to practice CSR more and better - if it is a philanphropic exercise which is peripheral to the main business, it will always be the first thing to go when push comes to shove.
But as with any process based on the collective activities of communities of human beings (as companies are) there is no 'one size fits all'. In different countries, there will be different priorities, and values that will shape how business act. And even the observations above are changing over time. The US has growing numbers of people looking towards core business issues.

                                                      

For instance, the CSR definition used by Business for Social Responsibility is:

Operating a business in a manner that meets or exceeds the ethical, legal, commercial and public expectations that society has of business.
On the other hand, the European Commission hedges its bets with two definitions wrapped into one:

A concept whereby companies decide voluntarily to contribute to a better society and a cleaner environment. A concept whereby companies integrate social and environmental concerns in their business operations and in their interaction with their stakeholders on a voluntary basis.
When you review each of these, they broadly agree that the definition now focuses on the impact of how you manage your core business. Some go further than others in prescribing how far companies go beyond managing their own impact into the terrain of acting specifically outside of that focus to make a contribution to the achievement of broader societal goals. It is a key difference, when many business leaders feel that their companies are ill equipped to pursue broaders societal goals, and activists argue that companies have no democratic legitimacy to take such roles. That particular debate will continue.



Element of CSR
                                                  


CSR Strategy

The CSR Strategy should be the starting point of the organizational CSR practice. This strategy needs to be defined as clear as possible with a future goal in mind.
Internal Aspects:
You will need to build solid support for the strategy before you go about defining what you want to achieve with this strategy. It is key to this strategy to get the support and participation from as many high profile executives in the organization and to identify and engage these people that are passionate about CSR within the business. Once you have this support in place it will be easier for you to define the CSR Strategy for your business.
External Aspects:
The CSR Strategy will act as the positioning document for the responsible business practice of your company. Your stakeholders and the public will expect a visionary document that shows ambition and goals.


CSR Management System

                                                     
                                               

After defining the strategy your next task will be to set up the CSR Management system. The management system of CSR within your business will outline what you actually need to do to make your strategy happen and to produce results.
Internal Aspects:
This is where you need to engage even more individuals in your business. Try to gather information on how the CSR Strategy has been received and then build on that to engage the most positive people. Once you have gathered a good team that supports your cause you can pool their knowledge and build a sound management plan on how to deliver the different elements of the strategy. The CSR management system is the customized tool to successful CSR. You can go around and look at the management systems of other companies but this management system really needs to be so customized to your organizational context that you nearly need to build it from scratch.
External Aspects:
This will be the CSR tool you will be asked about a lot once you have it set up. The CSR management system is your vehicle to get more external recognition of your activities. Never give away to much information but be helpful when other organizations what to have some tips. You never know how they are doing managing their CSR aspects; you might learn something for your management system.

CSR Reporting

The next step after the successful set up of the management system is the reporting of the first results of your companies CSR activities. This is called CSR reporting. Companies usually report on an annual basis. This CSR reporting is really the first test whether you and your team have created something interesting and worth reporting for your stakeholders.
Internal Aspects:
Internally this CSR reporting is really a tough task. It will test your CSR management and coordination skills. The goal is to produce a meaning full publication that will be of interest to your stakeholders. The challenge you will face inside of the company is that it will be very hard to get all the numbers and the signed of text in time to be still up to date and relevant. Remember this qualitative and quantitative data has not been gathered before so make sure everyone understands what he or she are supposed to report.
External Aspects:
CSR Reporting is a very important tool once you start out with CSR as an organization. Externally this CSR Report together with the CSR management system will be your CSR face of the organization. So the more professional you can make it the better.

Stakeholder Engagement & Communication


Stakeholder Engagement and Communication is the area, which keeps all of these areas together and connected. Without engaging your stakeholder on a continuous basis there is no real long term value in building a CSR Strategy, a report or communicating what you as an organization have been doing. So what do you need to take into account to practice successful stakeholder engagement?
Internal Aspects:
Key to Stakeholder Engagement is to be as transparent within your company about what you and your team do as the CSR team. This will be the first question colleagues will ask you: “But what do you actually do?” Effective stakeholder engagement starts in our own backyard first. Once you have that running your can turn to the external perspective of stakeholder engagement.
External Aspects:
Once you have the internal stakeholder engagement and communication running smoothly you can turn your focus to the external aspects. Here you should look to include interest groups such as NGO’s, the local community around your sites and other stakeholder groups that you have identified as being important to your organization.
External Stakeholder Engagement is very likely the hardest area of all of them outlined here. Why? Because you will take on the whole world and each and everyone can be your stakeholder depending what size of company you are working for. Research in stakeholder engagement is really still in its beginning and the future will see a lot of innovation is this external stakeholder engagement area. These innovations can be modern communication tools or effective ways to identify the particular stakeholder opinion. Exciting times ahead.
To sum up let me stress one last point which I feel is central to CSR within an organization.
Do not listen to the so-called CSR gurus and experts out there too much. Try to find your own way of making CSR happen within your business.
CSR is really only the sum of its individual approaches and best practice so why not start today to add your approach and best practice to it? It will be a journey you will never forget.

Using our track record working with leading brands, our highly skilled engineers develop world-class technologies that realise the potential of a wide range of devices to make peoples' lives and experiences easier, richer and more varied.

Our energies are focused on five sectors:

Automotive infotainment, driving innovative solutions for the auto industry with the integration of smartphones and in-vehicle systems
Bluetooth® Smart, capitalising on low energy connectivity for a range of devices
Imaging (cameras and printers), delivering integrated connectivity, location and imaging
CSR is at the forefront of developing semiconductors and software for a host of world-leading technology platforms and standards, including Bluetooth®, GPS and other location technologies, FM radio, Wi-Fi®, Near Field Communication and numerous others.


Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is also known as corporate citizenship, corporate philanthropy, corporate giving, corporate community involvement, community relations, community affairs, community development, corporate responsibility, global citizenship, and corporate social marketing.

Corporate social responsibility has stepped boldly and unabashedly into the limelight in the 21st century, with many firms professing an undying love for CSR. But has it always been so? Scholars note that for many years, the concept of social responsibility has been the object of intense ideologically influenced debates:

Antagonists have asserted that the business of business should remain business — simply making profits; while protagonists have spoken of the firm’s responsibility to maintain an equitable and working balance among the claims of the various directly interested groups — stockholders, employees, customers and the public at large.

It is now widely accepted that corporate governance and its CSR component has moved from the profit-centred model to the socially responsible model, a concept referring to the way in which companies exercise responsibility and accountability for the economic, social and environmental impact of their business decisions and behaviours.

Consequently, Henry Ford can boldly assert that a good company delivers excellent products and services, but a great company does all that and also strives to make the world a better place.

Why CSR?

                                                               
CSR has become increasingly important because today’s heightened interest in the proper role of business in society has been promoted by increased sensitivity to and awareness of environmental and ethical issues.

Issues such as environmental damage, improper treatment of workers, and faulty production leading to customer inconvenience or danger are being highlighted in the Ghanaian media; elsewhere, investors and investment fund managers have began to take account of a firm’s CSR policy in making investment decisions; some consumers have become increasingly sensitive to the CSR programmes of the firms from which they buy their goods and services.

These trends have contributed to the pressure on companies to operate in an economically, socially and environmentally sustainable way.

In Ghana, the Corporate Social Responsibility Movement (CSRM) has argued that profit maximisation should not be the company’s single objective.

The Ghana Chamber of Mines also defines CSR as the broader responsibilities that results from the relationship that a company develops with both the environment and society in an effort to jointly achieve an integrated environmental management system and satisfy social objectives.

The Ghana Club 100 (GC 100), in ranking the nation’s best performing companies considers their social responsibility in areas such as: concern for health, education, poverty alleviation, environmental concerns, issues relating to the socially vulnerable, and contribution to sports development.

Do firms gain from CSR?


                                              
Although some opponents have lambasted CSR practice for being mere ‘greenwash’ or an exercise in publicity, a great volume of CSR research also concludes that companies have experienced a range of bottom-line benefits including: increased sales and market share; strengthened brand positioning; enhanced corporate image and clout; increased ability to attract, motivate and retain employees; decreased operating costs; and increased appeal to investors and financial analysts.

Government involvement and role in CSR

The Government’s involvement in CSR seems to rest mainly with the legal dimension – which enjoins businesses to obey the law. However, there is no comprehensive CSR policy or law in Ghana.

There are a variety of policies, laws, practices and initiatives that together provide the CSR framework in Ghana; the Government seeks to promote CSR by putting in place legislation that defines minimum standards for business performance. Examples include constitutional provisions, local government laws and requirements for environmental impact assessments contained in an Act of Parliament.

The Government also facilitates CSR by providing incentives to companies undertaking activities that promote the CSR agenda and drive social and environmental improvements. The role of the Government here is basically catalytic, secondary, or supportive.

Existing relevant documentation

In Ghana, firms’ CSR concepts clearly straddle several divides: Ofori (2006) found a somewhat haphazard indulgence in corporate good works by local Ghanaian firms; Ofori and Hinson (2007) compared the adoption of social responsibility by internationally connected firms in Ghana and their indigenous Ghanaian counterparts with no international connections.

They found that although both groups of companies concentrated on a few select areas such as education, safety, environmental damage, healthcare, consumer protection and philanthropy, the internationally connected companies are more strategic, moral and ethical in their approach to CSR.

Additionally, Ofori (2007) found that firms quoted on the Ghana Stock Exchange are alive to their societal obligations and respond more to all the concerns of their major stakeholders. More recently, Ofori (2008) found that both individual ethical values and organisational values influence executives and managers’ CSR approaches.

Finally, Ofori (2009) also found that CSR functions complement the overall functions of firms in Ghana which seem to engage in CSR to build corporate image and promote socio-economic development.

The Ghana Business Code and CSR - Beyond the individual firm level, three key business associations in Ghana; Association of Ghana Industries (AGI), Ghana National Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GNCCI) and Ghana Employers Association (GEA) with support from the Improving Business Practice (IBP) sub-component of the DANIDA-funded Business Sector Programme Support (BSPS) have introduced the Ghana Business Code, which is aligned to the UN Global Compact.

Although the Code is not binding it uses a 10-point format which addresses issues of human rights, labour standards, issues of the environment, anti-corruption and ethical business practices to ensure fair treatment of all business stakeholders.

The Ghana Club 100 and CSR - The Ghana Club 100 in ranking the nation’s best performing companies uses a weighted ranking system comprising: size of business (20 per cent); profitability (25 pr cent); growth (30 per cent); employment level (15 per cent); and CSR, including philanthropy (10 per cent).

The guidelines for determining social responsibility of companies include: health concerns, education, poverty alleviation, environmental concerns; issues relating to the socially vulnerable; and contribution to sports development.

The African Peer Review Mechanism (APRM) note on CSR - “It is recommended to clarify the concept of CSR in Ghana and make efforts to bring the full import of the concept to all stakeholders especially government, corporations, communities and CSOs”. CSR in Ghana (2006): Report submitted to Friedrich Ebert Foundation (FES) Ghana – In its report on CSR, the FES says:

“It is recommended that a CSR policy be developed for Ghana and that the laws that regulate the various sectors of the economy (and aspects of social life) in Ghana be amended to include specific CSR provisions”; “It is recommended that modalities be put in place to ensure some measure of enforcement of business and professional codes of ethics by external stakeholders in order to improve CSR in the country”; “It is recommended that regulatory institutions include in their regulatory efforts, definitive efforts at facilitating the formation and supporting of the activities of CSR advocacy groups.

What are the promoting and hindering factors for CSR in Ghana?

What has been the experience of those Ghanaian companies that have embraced CSR? What factors have worked and what have been the hindering elements? A 2009 survey by GTZ has shown that there are several promoting factors for CSR in Ghana:

the commitment of company management and staff; the commitment of beneficiaries and identification of beneficiary needs; the establishment of a company CSR mission; effective planning; transparency; and sustainability.

The survey also uncovered several hindering factors for CSR in Ghana: inadequate project funds; inadequate trained human resources; a lack of CSR-company strategy fit; too many requests from the public; and a lack of insight into beneficiary needs.

Areas for development and future trends for CSR in Ghana

It seems the public expects a better and speedier response from firms to their requests, as well as a better understanding of their concerns and needs. Firms would prefer a better appreciation of the challenges they face in articulating and executing their CSR agendas.

It is also clear that in addressing CSR hindering factors, there is the need for a systemic and context-sensitive approach that relies on the potential of people, organisations and communities to design and implement their own solutions within tried and tested global CSR frameworks.

This requires more targeted capacity and skills building of CSR professionals and external stakeholders, as well as the resourcing of company CSR departments and units to better enable them to execute their mandate on behalf of their constituents. The Government must also provide incentives and allocate the Government resources for CSR initiatives, and improve on its own CSR actions.

Ghanaian firms have also indicated that in the future, they expect to increase and improve their engagement in four key arenas for the meaningful application of CSR, namely: CSR in the marketplace, the workplace, the community and the ecological environment. They intend to be especially proactive and more consistent in workplace and marketplace focused CSR projects/activities across all sectors.

Firms also intend their future CSR initiatives to have a closer correlation with company business, to be more focused and to concentrate on longer-term projects that may last over a year and could include other partners.
