Hays is the world’s leading specialist recruitment firm and is set to revolutionize how India Inc. employs the most important asset of a company – people.
As Indian companies continue to make a mark in the global arena amidst a challenging economic climate, efficient recruitment becomes crucial for long term growth. Hays’ decades of experience and understanding of working in multiple locations, and with a range of cultures, ensures adaptability and success at what we do.
Hays’ operations span 27 countries, 393 offices and more than 8,872 staff, including 5,798 consultants serving clients’ specialist recruitment needs across a broad spectrum of industries. In 2008, we have successfully placed more than 80,000 candidates globally into permanent jobs.
Becoming the world’s foremost recruiter is our ultimate goal and our international expansion is pivotal to this. This is why Hays decided to make the Indian sub-continent its next point of entry. Emerging developed economies like India have been a focus for Hays and by mid-2009 Hays will have a presence in all the BRIC economies.
India needs no introductions as an economic powerhouse. The term ‘BRIC’ is in recognition of the economic strides made by India (along with Brazil, Russia and China), not to mention the gilt-edged future prospects.
Not only has India broken into the elite top 10 world economies in terms of GDP, it is ranked fourth in the equivalent purchasing power league. Over half its GDP is accounted for by the services sector.
"India boasts the second largest population in the world, but estimates indicate that it will surpass China by 2025 to become the most populated country in the world. This population growth is also indicative of the corresponding increase in the population of people who will be seeking job opportunities by that time. It is estimated that India will have about 200 million college graduates (16% of the world), and a 500 million skilled workforce (40% of the world)."
