In an industry where getting, training and retaining manpower
is the biggest business challenge, what should a solution provider do to deal
with people probl-ems? Mumbai-based Allied Digital Services (ADS) deci-ded that
the best thing to do was to set up an HR division in-house.
The company has also finalized a big deal with an US-based IT
servicing company, for the post-sales support of a MNC brand's range of
laptops and notebooks.
Called 360Â° HR, this division acts as a recruitment agency
for ADS and gathers a database of candidates from various sources. This is then
collated and categorized based on cer-tain parameters. As per the pr-oject
requirements, the pros-pects are called for interviews.
Nitin Shah, MD, ADS said, "Rather than rely on external
agencies to get manpower we decided to start our own division." Also,
external recruitment agencies were unable to provide the right of candidates.
Now, 360Â° HR has become a revenue stream for ADS as other
solution providers and IT companies outsource their HR requirements to it.
Surprisingly, the division is getting queries from custo-mers
for CIOS and CTOs.
