“FMS accounts for 80 Percent of Our Hiring”
Jayesh Shah, Director, Orient Technologies, shares his company’s best practices for recruiting smart
Almost 80 percent of our hiring is for our facility management services (FMS). At Orient, FMS accounts for 800 employees of the total 1300. We hire an average 75 employees per month, hence talent sourcing is critical for us.
We rely heavily on job portals and employee referrals for hiring L1 and L2 engineers. Job portals like Naukri.com and Timesjobs.com offer economical packages with access to huge pool of CVs and mass mailings at `0.25 per mail. Our career page attracts 100 CVs per day during April-July.
For L3 engineers, since openings are limited, we rely on employee referrals and LinkedIn. Additionally, we have a huge database of candidates which comes handy for urgent requirements and sales jobs.
We are implementing PeopleScope HRMS which will consolidate our candidate database, which now runs into couple of lakhs. Moving forward we will focus on our in-house database for talent sourcing.
For selecting the right candidate, we have a robust scrutiny process. Our recruitment team of 10 executives rigorously scrutinizes the CVs. For all technical positions, candidates have to take written tests which is then followed by 1-1 interviews by recruiters and then by the team leaders. At each level of the interview, we analyze candidate’s job skills, attitude towards the job, reason for job change and ability to adjust to our organizational culture.
