Human Resource is the most precious resource for any organisations & the recruitment industry is playing a vital role in ensuring that businesses have the right & smart talent available to them across all functions & geographies.

AddRec has been helping its clients locate the best talent globally while enabling them to retain their competitive edge and sharpen their focus on core strengths. AddRec excels in providing recruitment services like Executive Search, Staffing, and Selection Services & Cross Border Recruitment Solutions; today AddRec founded by Mr. Aditya Jain has created a formidable reputation of being the trusted partner to many top corporates across the world.

Aditya, an MBA from Cardiff Business School, UK 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 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 - "we went to clients that no one wanted, we developed our expertise in sectors other then IT/Software as we felt that these other sectors were under serviced while IT/Software had hyper competition,
that's what paid us well". From the beginning we developed the right culture and the best infrastructure for our people to innovate and excel with entrepreneurial spirit.

Unique Employee, Client, Candidate Model
Employees, Clients & Candidates are the three most important stakeholders at AddRec. They went about creating a unique strategy around all three. Employees look at AddRec as a great company to work for which encourages them to work with entrepreneurial spirit and also provide them an opportunity to become a partner in company's growth and profits. Clients look at AddRec as a company high on Ethics with stable employees and absolute commitment to deliver the best services across functions and geographies. Candidates look at AddRec as a genuine global partner in their career growth. It is this unique model which has assured AddRec's business continuity and growth.

Unlike many recruitment services firms AddRec went about building dedicated teams for clients, which ensured that the teams developed deep understanding of client's business and manpower requirements offering them minimum lead time to hire quality talent.

Four Vertical: AddRec's Strengths
AddRec is split into four verticals, which are as good as four different companies: InfraJobs, GulfSearch, BFSISearch & ActiveITjobs. Interestingly, all have different identity, 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 and volume hiring. GulfSearch caters to the GCC Countries with its office based in Dubai. BFSI Search is essentially into volume hiring and so is Active ITJobs.

Fastest Finger First
At AddRec it's not just recruitment, but fast recruitment. "Our clients want people like yesterday". So they 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.

The Era of Social Media Recruitment
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, they were probably one of the first few companies in the region to implement HireCraft across all their operations. Interestingly AddRec's office doesn't have landline for recruiters and all use a smart phone provided by the company as they believe that a lot more can be done through a smart phone then a landline. All employees have undertaken rigorous training to be social media recruitment experts. 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.

Employees Love AddRec

AddRec takes pride in having one of the lowest attrition rates in the recruitment industry. In fact Aditya says, "I am so glad to see that most of the core team that started AddRec is still with us, and they are the prime reason of our growth" at AddRec they take pride in converting employees with potential and stability into entrepreneurs.

Future Plans
There is a lot of excitement at AddRec, Aditya says that, "India is a great place to be right now looking at rest of the world, but we are also looking at growing our GCC business many folds, we have the right people in the right places. Our Leadership Team is very aggressive and we are looking at beating our past growth rate of 25 percent y-o-y. Within the next three years we plan to have 200+ recruiters and expand our GCC business to all GCC countries. Let us make India the recruitment hub of the world".
