Prominent US Space Scientist joins Indian talent acquisition startup TurboHire as Mentor
Hyderabad-based talent acquisition startup TurboHire will now have Dr. Edwards Rogers, Chief Knowledge Officer at Goddard Space Flight Centre, Washington DC, as its Mentor Advisor.
In his role, Dr. Edwards Rogers will help TurboHire to improve the world's simplest job search and job application framework JustDropYourResume.com for candidates and fastest talent evaluation and consensus-driven hiring platform Turbohire for Employers. The startup's spokesperson says that this new paradigm could have an impact at scale for 600 million workforce with 60 million in the organized sector in India.
As Chief Knowledge Officer, Goddard Space Flight Centre, NASA since 2003, Dr. Rogers has supported many pathbreaking initiatives such as satellite constellation to map entire earth. As a research scholar, he teaches extensively on Managing Complexity in today's intelligent and global enterprises. His research applies game theory models to human behavior and decision-making at public as well as hi-tech organizations. He has received a Ph.D. in Human Resources Management from Cornell University.
"The team at TurboHire has tackled a complex problem that many organizations and governments face today. The team's model of recruiter and jobseeker having an inter-dependent relationship rather than individual interests is bound to help millions of job seekers. I am excited to contribute to a shape-shifting vision for job markets, where it is needed most in India," quoted Dr. Rogers.
TurboHire.co is a new-age Talent Acquisition Platform (TAP). Talent Acquisition in current Job markets is like an onion involving layers of background, capability, skills, education, communication, and personality of the candidate. Surprisingly, these layers of limitations are also applicable to Recruiter as a human. Current solutions in the market have, till date, ignored Recruiter issues and put the focus of technology only on candidates, superficial hiring trends and unidirectional communication in the hiring process.
"Our USP is to support organizations to manage their entire hiring operations on a single platform, source at an amazing speed on simplified JustDropYourResume channels, quickly identify the right talent and, conduct multi-directional communication to achieve confident and fast hiring decisions. The ability for employers to say Yes/ No in a matter of few days rather than several weeks and months, unclogs the Job Market," commented Deepak Agrawal, Founder, TurboHire.
Agarwal has said that his company's platform is available as easy-to-onboard PaaS/SaaS offering. It is in use at 100+ organizations and is being evaluated by some of the largest employers in India. TurboHire envisions to create friction-less Jobs Market for high-voltage Indian economy. The company is about 2 years old and operates from DLabs Incubation Center at ISB, Hyderabad. It is founded by a team of IITians and NITians with prior experience in Microsoft, Google, ISB and Infosys.
