Because fast growth requires intensive hiring, the Suryadatta group is always on the run to hire 100s of candidates, especially for the following job positions :
- Admission Counselor
- Tele callers, Tele marketers
- Social media marketers
- Administrative Staff
- Customer support
While working under the high pressure of filling these positions, their concern was trading-off between quality of hire and speed of hiring. They understood that this led to wrong hire which caused candidate attrition.
A survey was conducted which showed that employees’ lack of expectations about the position was the root cause of the problem. Agents in customer service frequently face irate consumers and irregular schedules while being under considerable time constraints. Not something that suits everyone.
“The efficiency of our applicant evaluation increased by at least double. Additionally, it enabled us to handle a substantial number of additional applicants.”
– Dr. Sanjay Chordiya,Founder President and Chairman
