Date: Wednesday , June 15, 2016
With new transformative waves in the offing, Indian recruitment industry is allegedly pegged to witness one million new jobs pouring in to the portfolio through its organized sector, owing to the emergence of a startup ecosystem. Glimmering as the new-age frontiers of the evolution and capitalizing the impending opportunities, IMS People – a leading offshore recruitment services company – has been instrumental in churning out innovative, best-of- breed, traditional as well as tailor-made offshore recruitment services that leverage flexible workforce and work setups. Be it for specific fragments or comprehensive process, IMS stands as a strategic partner to thriving recruitment companies and empowers them to fill more orders at lower costs. Headquartered in Ahmedabad, this ISO 9001:2008 certified company is a part of UK-based Empresaria Group plc, an international specialist staffing organization. Reaping a growth of 30-35 percent, IMS is now a proud propitiator of global presence, esteemed clientele, eminent awards and 500+ young and dynamic employees.
Empowering the Minds
The core management of a company that walks the talk, profoundly impacts not just customers, but also its employees. With integrity ingrained in its DNA, IMS believes in trusting its employees (or valuable success ingredients as the company christens them) and leaves no stone unturned in ensuring that the teams grow hand-in-hand with the business. “If you’ve got a great idea and you’re applying yourself to your business don’t stop believing in yourself,” asserts Amit Somaiya, CEO, IMS.
Endeavoring to develop and groom leaders, the organization has institutionalized an open and friendly culture, and carefully handpicks fresh talents who would fit into the culture. The strong leadership skills, right mindset and zeal to learn are given major emphasis; but one’s expertise is not overlooked either. Once onboard, the employees are honed continuously through various initiatives that include professional as well as soft skill trainings, management & team building activities and leadership & people management skill enhancement programs.
“Opportunity without a platform is of no good and these two things without a zest are in vain. Coming from a different region and working with all new people sometimes becomes difficult, but IMS People has always been a second home for me. Aspirants for career growth should definitely step in at IMS!” proclaims Nisha Ingle, an employee of IMS.
Bounded by the core values of IDEAS (Innovative thinking, Dedication, Enthusiasm, Adaptability and Synergy), the crew pursues constant innovation and leverages exceptional service. But to continuously fuel such efforts, IMS regularly assesses the performances through quarterly review meetings, leaders’ visit to their respective team work stations and such other initiatives. Each employee is also encouraged to freely put forth his ideas, feedbacks and suggestions through the Suggestion Box.
The Other Side of a Corporate
“IMS is my second home. As the HR Manager, I am moving towards creating IMS as home for each employee. Our business starts and completes with people, and I am committed to feel, care and respect the emotions of my each employee,” adds Swati Pandit, HR Manager, IMS.
As a people’s business, IMS strives to create a balanced working environment and backs its employees, be it professionally or even financially. Besides the statutory norms like PF, ESIC and gratuity, the organization has also raised a bar in enabling employees to relish a constructive leave policy, which entitles them to access sufficient leave, while the work runs uninterrupted through the backup resources. Each employee can log in to IMS’ online software, which rolls out a compendium of all the policies and his/her details.
The One Family Culture
IMS offices boast of a fully equipped recreation room to keep the employees energetic. Akin to incentives, awards and promotions, the organization encourages frolic activities that cover team lunches, Cricket tournaments, Garba competition, festival celebrations and team outings. Additionally, the crew is endowed with cab facilities, ESIC coverage and travel allowance. Most importantly, the perks are designed so as to embrace not only employees, but their respective families as well, which in turn upholds IMS’ One Family culture. At IMS, they can reap an equal support and a welcoming door to celebrate the company’s glory.
