Despite the deployment of various valid techniques in recruitment process to reduce failure rate, hiring senior executives successfully is still one of the risky affairs for every company under the sun. Meticulously structured protocols are laid down, resources are gathered and with the advent of the digital world, online portals are scavenged for the perfect fit. Amongst all other operations and deadlines within the company, hiring can be easily overlooked or done shabbily. But an executive search firm can always be the saviour that provides dedicated and time & money-efficient solution to a company’s recruitment and staffing needs. These executive search firms use quality methods to attract the best candidates (tailor-made to clients’ needs) and add value where references and reputation are concerned.

With the mission statement to be the ultimate champion and super hero who fight all challenges to emerge the victor, StepUp HR is all set to be the last word in every battlefield when it comes to recruiting manpower. Despite being located in the small town of Ludhiana, StepUp HR (erstwhile StepUp Placements) has gathered a stream of acumen that is always ready to wow clients from diverse verticals.

The Unique Methodology

What keeps clients coming back perhaps, more than the value of the project delivered, is the experience of working with StepUp HR. The moment the company gets a mandate, profile or open position from a client, it narrows the entire focus to understand the relation between the client and the specification received pertaining to which head hunting begins. Unlike other firms, StepUp deploys four teams simultaneously equipped with different tools to find the right fit – one team working on various job portals, other crunching the social media, the third team taking charge to trace down similar profiles with client’s competitors, and the fourth working on reference.

“After receiving a job description, our four teams sit together to discuss/communicate about the profile and get on a call with the client to have crystal clear understanding about their requirement,” says Abhishek Upadhyaya, CEO & MD, StepUp HR. Despite multiple teams working on a single project, confidentiality is always kept at the helm of each assignment. Hence with lot of silence, the teams start sourcing the profiles leveraging their in-house recruitment software called Hirecraft and by the evening,filter the best 6-7 CVs. Post a detailed discussion among the team, the best four CVs are then forwarded to the client for review, all within a day’s time. Receiving CVs for critical posts in a jet speed always ensures a ‘WOW’ factor for them, which helps to successfully cement long-term relationship.
