Position Yourself Appropriately: IT HR Leaders’ Advice for Revamping Hiring Strategy

Noida, India – May 11th, 2021 – ETHRWorld interacted with the IT industry leaders responsible for scaling up the workforce of their organisations and maintaining the talent pool in these challenging times.

Shyam Verma, CHRO, JK Tech, opines that by the first quarter of FY21, tech companies were back on track and boomeranged due to a complete online shift of businesses across the globe.

In conjunction with the rising digital demands, JK Tech looks forward to hiring a mix of both freshers and experienced candidates in the next two quarters. And as far as the medium is considered, the company is betting heavily on on-campus placement, internal talent development, employee referral programmes and lastly, through talent agencies.

“As clients want to digitally transform their business, we continue to ride on the wave of high demand thus, expanding our talent pool is our top-most priority. We plan to aggressively hire in the next two quarters, adding a good mix of campus freshers as well as laterals,” Verma said.

With the upsurge in tech talent demand, he further said that it is necessary for organisations to position the company’s needs in a way that seems to be an opportunity one can’t miss.

“Always remember you are positioning yourself as a brand so that the capable ones can represent you. Thus, positioning yourself appropriately is the key,” he added.

Reiterating the significance of social media platforms, Verma said JK Tech’s Human Resource team is also actively seeking candidates via social media and building a strong reputation and connection through social media recruiting.

He further said, “Another strategy which we have employed as a part of our recruitment strategy is an employee referral programme. We are using our employees as our official mascots as nobody knows a company better than its employees.”

The company intends to motivate its workforce to refer their friends and family and earn rewards based on the referrals they share.
