What’s in this blog?
Also, in this blog post you are about to read the reason behind our low attrition rate. We are proud to declare that we have the lowest attrition rate among the ITES companies in this region, something that we have achieved mainly due to our employee friendly policies. So, without any further delay, let us show you how exactly we recruit our people.
A general tactic
As a general rule, we recruit people with experience only. We do this mainly because we want to provide top-notch service to our customers and we want our people to be accountable for the projects assigned to them. With experienced professionals, it is easy for us to increase the productivity of our team, because they are matured and adds value to the processes.
Why the ‘No fresher’ board?
Also, we have adopted the strategy of cutting our expenses in training fresh candidates, mainly because we cannot afford that luxury to keep someone on our payroll who is not productive right from the start. It’s an honest confession but then, we are really honest people. No hard feelings, fellas! When we will be strong enough to accommodate fresh candidates, we will surely do so.
Who is/are exempted?
However, there is an exception to this rule. If any candidate, straight of their college, displays very high levels of competence or can prove that he/she has undergone professional level training programs in his/her chosen domain or have done an internship, we might consider them on a case to case basis.
The safety measure
But we keep them on probation in the initial days, because you know, it’s really hard to keep a tab on the real intentions of really smart people when they are so young and often, fickle-minded too, regarding the choices they make. This is a key policy from our end for keeping the attrition rate low.
The short-listing procedure
The areas that need coding skills are web design, development, UI design, ecommerce development, app development and SEO, to some extent. We have very experienced and competent people in each of these departments and we have entrusted the responsibility of interviewing suitable candidates. We screen CVs based on intelligent algorithms to match the key skills of a candidate with that of our specific requirements.
The different stages
It’s a good approach – a techie to a techie, no bullshit, no loose ends! Usually, the process consists of four levels – written aptitude test, hands-on coding test, vis-a-vis technical interview and finally the HR interview. This is the general format for almost all technical roles. One thing we must mention – we don’t take anyone’s word for granted.
Skills we value
If a candidate claims that he/she has skills in PHP, WordPress, Zoomla, Magento, HTML 5, CSS 3, Adobe Creative Suite, SEO or anything else, we will put him under rigorous tests and if necessary, let him/contribute to live projects in order to gauze the difference he/she can make. Historically, we are a web design company with recent focus on low cost web development solutions. Therefore, we also seek two qualities in the candidates – an artistic eye and a keen business sense. When we are satisfied, we offer the candidate extremely attractive compensation which is sometimes above the industry standards for exceptionally brilliant candidates.
