Architect of AddRec Solutions
Aditya Jain is the CEO & Founder of AddRec Solutions. He is an MBA from Cardiff Business School, UK who started his HR career as a Recruitment Specialist with a large Singapore based IT Services firm in 2001. From day one, Aditya knew it was Global Recruitment where he wanted to be big someday. By 2005 Aditya was heading the Indian operations of the Singapore based company with continuous learning and experience gathering soon his dream of entrepreneurship took shape. As a result, AddRec came into being in 2005. From the beginning AddRec followed the Blue Ocean Strategy, which is the main factor behind its success.
AddRec’s Strengths: Firing on Four Cylinders
AddRec is split into four verticals, each specialised division focuses solely on one particular industry, allowing them to provide unrivaled professional services and client support; these divisions are InfraJobs, Gulf Search, BFSI Search & ActiveITjobs. Interestingly, all have different identities, logos and their respective websites, explains Aditya. Their approach & strategy for each vertical is different and all four verticals follow different strategies. In InfraJobs, they do Executive Search as well as volume hiring. GulfSearch caters to the GCC Countries with its office based in Dubai. BFSI Search is essentially into volume hiring and so is ActiveITJobs.
“At AddRec it’s not just recruitment, but fast recruitment. Our clients want people like yesterday,” asserts Aditya while talking about their work culture. To fulfill client’s demand team AddRec instituted the Fast Recruitment Concept. When it comes to volume hiring, which is a substantial part of AddRec’s business speed is of utmost importance. The team works on the principals of Kaun Banega Crorepati’s – Fastest Finger First, doing all this while ensuring high quality work. Employees are trained extensively to recruit high quality people, matching to clients needs with speed.
AddRec leads the industry from front in adopting new innovative recruitment techniques through social media. They firmly believe that the only constant in Recruitment Industry is to change and evolve. AddRec realised early the power of Social Media and changed with time, which has paid them well. They invested in technology extensively right from the start. To this regards, Aditya has a very interesting story to share, “A recruiter once came to me and said Sir, I don’t know how to use Linkedin can I get some training, I asked her who trained you to use Facebook – There was silence and we had a transformed organisation.” AddRec continues to be an early adapter and experimenter of new innovative technologies and believes it’s one of their strongest competitive edge.
