It is rightly believed that workforce population of any fast progressing country like India is its biggest asset. As a matter of fact, the white collar workforce of a country makes the most coveted human resource. India is undoubtedly one of the fastest growing economies in the world. It is soon expected to surpass China and establish itself as the fastest growing economy. Needless to say, the workforce power of this country is very high. The question however is- Is the workforce coming out of the comfort zone and acquiring all the necessary industry related skills? Are the recruiters able to hire truly potential candidates?
The crux of the matter is that Indian workforce is still struggling to find its true stand. Recruiters aren’t completely satisfied with Indian workforce and more often than not, they end up taking bad hire decisions. A bad hire drains not only energy and time but also the valuable resources of the organization. WeLoveHiring bridges the gap between candidates/job seekers and organizations requirements. WeLoveHiring, a SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) based platform provides not only recruitment based training/assessments but also helps job seekers at each and every stage of strategic job search.
