Our client was observing an overwhelming growth over the years – expanding its operations, workforce and more. But, mobilizing the employees rapidly was always a challenge. Hiring and recruitment managers had issues accessing candidates and making rational hiring decisions.

The client:
  • Lacked automated systems to compare salary standards of a particular profile
  • Used exhaustive processes to study previous pay structure and release new offers
  • Had no system to allocate hiring budget for a position/department and track its progress
  • Operated using a manual process for Onboarding/Offboarding
  • Utilized excel sheets to calculate Salary Fitment and Parity
