TASK Staffing: Offering Client-specific Executive Recruitment Services that are Abreast with Shifting Market Requirements

Date:   Tuesday , December 15, 2015

Unemployment is considered as one of the critical national issues, while the real problem is employability. Being the backbone of economy, it is up to the HR industry to surmount this challenge by harmonizing industry needs with available assets. Though myriad of recruitment firms are mushrooming due to this industry\'s little to no entry barriers, only a handful of them prevail longer. Backed by nearly two decades of existence in the recruitment industry, TASK, is one such long-standing company, which constantly pre-designs its offerings and has developed the internal capabilities to deal with diverse market needs and dynamics.
While TASK\'s highly-experienced people handle the knowledge bank, its Youth Team, which is dedicated to unremittingly strive for organizational betterment, creates diverse programs & presentations on select subjects akin to adaptable soft skills, practices and behaviours of new generation talent pool. Our two decades long existence & global reach certainly reassures our clients worldwide from across industries to establish long-term business partnership with us, remarks C.M. Mathew, Managing Director, TASK Staffing Solutions Pvt. Ltd.

Strategically Aligned with Marketplace
Inextricably intertwined with each other, the IT industry (India\'s largest private sector employer) endeavours to obtain technological development through skilled human capital, while technology has enabled HR industry to improve its iterative processes and bring forth holistic & in-depth service features. Realizing this, TASK exploits recruitment softwares, analytics and professional digital media to the fullest to support its recruitment processes.
The company is segregated into two Strategic Business Units Value SBU (executive recruitment & executive search) and Volume SBU (RPO & Volume hiring) vertically and six practices (BFSI, PLH, Telecom, IT, EPI & CSE) horizontally, forming a matrix. It also hires at all levels (executive, middle management & junior) endowing the organogram as a third dimension. Also, the RPO services are onsite, offsite or a hybrid of both. Having such diverse services enables us to answer all the recruitment needs of clients across the organization, adds Mathew. With vast knowledge & experience in executive recruitment, it constantly invents effective recruitment processes and dynamically designs its offerings to be more client-specific abreast with the shifting market requirements.

Fast tracking the Careers of Promising TASKites
TASK stands tall on the pillars of innovation, capability, reach, knowledge and ethics, which facilitate the growth of organization as well as individual TASKite. Ethics being foundation, our professional family have been maintaining the culture of transparency and inclusiveness. Our dynamic teams learn and suit themselves to the need of the hour. Any new approach in service offerings, you will find TASK there, says Mathew.
TASK hires freshers from different backgrounds (HR, marketing, IT, Engineering & pharmacy) as trainees and promotes them into research associates after they\'ve undergone several classroom & on-job trainings about various levels of recruitment processes. The capabilities of lateral hires are assessed and honed with training inputs. The careers of promising TASKites are fast tracked and plethora of opportunities are given to deserving talents without fail. TASK takes pride in the fact that several of its senior team members have been with the company for over 10 years.

Moving Up in the Value Chain
TASK Staffing Solutions was established in 2005 as a specialized arm to offer overarching staffing solutions, when the executive recruitment business of its parent company TASK Initiatives, a HR Consulting & Advisory services provider founded in 1996, became large. Very soon, TASK Staffing also grew in terms of client presence, service spectrum and number of hirers, with presence in 10 cities across India, through a combination of own branches and franchise offices.
However, in 2010 TASK refurbished its model, since it realized that the technology intervention has transmuted the recruitment process, where neither clients nor candidates prefer to walk into the office, but expects firms to cover the entire globe. The flexible company, consequently, scraped the existing model and channelled that energy towards its central process location, Ahmedabad. Operating under the direct supervision, this hub brought forth better results in terms of improved quality and fastened processes for clients & candidates not just across the nation, but globe; staying true to its name TASK, which stands for Talent @ Speed & Knowledge.
The company further intends to offer offshore processes to more countries either by itself or via collaborations. The company that has evolved from being a placement firm to an extended HR arm providing onsite solutions envisions a future, where it marks its journey up in the value chain by transforming into a complete knowledge partner, in the human resources space.
