Indeed and SHRM collaborate for 'Here to Help with jobs' initiative
Indeed has collaborated with Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), to help showcase current employment opportunities and encourage a reticent labor force to apply.
Amidst concerns and uncertainty arising from the COVID-19 outbreak, attracting talent remains a key challenge for Indian enterprises. In the face of an overall downturn, some services are bucking the trend, experiencing increased consumer demand and subsequently need to significantly ramp up supply to meet this requirement.
Through this partnership, Indeed and SHRM will help job seekers who are ready to work, access roles requiring urgent fulfillment. To reassure talent that they can confidently apply for work in the current environment, a platform with a series of short videos have also been created by the Heads of Recruitment of featured employers, highlighting how their companies are adapting to COVID-19.
Commenting on the initiative, Sashi Kumar, Managing Director, Indeed India said, "As the effects of the pandemic continue to impact the labor market, we are doing what we can to keep the economy moving, leveraging the resources we have at our disposal and partnering with those who are on the same mission - to help Indians find safe work. We are grateful to all the enterprises who have joined us in this endeavor, and hope that more will be encouraged to join the movement."
Achal Khanna, CEO SHRM APAC & Middle East and Head – Global Business Development, SHRM stated, "During this uncertain time, it is important to ensure that job seekers are motivated and make the best of the opportunities that are still available for them to leverage. Positive job seeker sentiment is vital to providing the much-needed stimulus to hiring that organizations are relying on, in order to put their best foot forward and meet challenges of the new normal."
Vishal Bansal, TA Lead, HP INC said: "This pandemic is having a profound impact on economies and financial markets around the world. This is a truly unprecedented set of headwinds, and the road to recovery is going to be very long. HP as a company is committed to doing everything it can to support communities and respond to the challenges of this global pandemic."
