5. Tell us about the challenges your company has tackled on the road to success.Please share with us the issues a Talent and Acquisition company generally faces.

The journey so far as a startup has been filled with learning’s in the area of procuring business and its eco system. The focus has been on delivering value instead of reaching large volumes or revenue.

In this new global market, business strategy and global talent development need to be linked in a way we’ve never seen before. Talent Development need to be involved in business strategy discussions to ensure alignment of learning interventions. The diagnosis of the learning need (not just training requirement) and aligning the content design and delivery has been our road to success for creating higher impact and performance/productivity jump.

Let me explain by an analogy of how people or an organization can avail preventive health checkup for its employees by a Doctor in a Hospital. The two approaches are, to be proactive and be prepared for the new outbreak with vaccinations done is preventive, alternately get treated by surgery or medicine is reactive.

Doctor Consultant
Hospital project/program managers/infrastructure
new outbreak Technology disruption/automation
vaccinations up skilling, cross skilling
medicine TNA/Diagnosis for cross skilling bridging gaps,
role/function/location change
surgery performance improvement plan/exit

For proactive talent development it translates in identifying the critical Business aligned Goals to be planned for suitable interventions eg: improving Customer satisfaction parameters by front end employees
