actuate’ Placement Services
 
Organizations are what its Human Resource makes it to be. All endeavors depend upon people and success of an organization depends primarily on the abilities, skills, knowledge and efficiency of its HUMAN RESOURCE. This highly elastic resource with unlimited potential, if identified properly and placed on the right job, knows no boundaries to its contribution. Harnessing this latent potential requires thoughtful selection, based on translating the job requirement into appropriate skill/competence sets. Thus, meaningful and focused MANPOWER IDENTIFICATION with an environment for promoting Human Resource Development is the key to being successful. Appropriate placement being an Integral Part of Successful Organizations requires precise selection processes/ tools and expert recruiters to match the accomplishments of the candidates to requirements of the job.

This process of recruiting is indeed a time consuming one. In addition the costs that go with it and the efforts apart from strategies for successful recruiting all add up to not only displacing the normal organizational working but also entail maintaining expertise of a very high order for the right selection. In today’s competitive and dynamic environment success and growth require all attention of an organization to be focused on the core activities. We as placement consultants come in as an extended arm to our clients in meeting these specialized needs and letting them focus on the core activities as well as not carry the burden of unnecessary manpower to perform jobs that can effectively be outsourced to competent partners.

To facilitate the above, we at actuate involve experts in their respective fields for consultation. Our experts create and finalize with the clients’ approval the most appropriate profile of personal attributes, competence and skill sets for the position. The job responsibilities are prime focus in finalizing the profile required. We then locate people fulfilling the requirements and put them through rigorous tests to establish their suitability, thus providing our clients with the most suitable selection. We also advise the clients on prevailing compensation packages and methodology of appointment / terms & conditions of engagement.

Special Practices actuate’s Team Adopts For Placements
The Placement service offered by actuate caters to all management levels and functional specializations, right from the entry level to the top management positions. Our capabilities also extend to providing semi skilled and skilled personnel in case the clients needs so require. Keeping in view the difference in the profiles of the various levels, the methods used in sourcing and short-listing is different for each level and specialization. The process for all levels follows a scientific approach and involves a comprehensive understanding of the clients' as well as the candidates' needs.

An essential prerequisite to all recruitment is a close study of the Work process and the Job requirement. These are then translated into skill and competence sets and finally into the qualification/experience requirement most appropriate to fulfilment of the Job responsibilities and expected targets and results to be achieved. Besides, the client organization’s culture, environment as well as the existing compensation packages are taken into account in arriving at the ideal profile required. Having clarity of the attributes required in the incumbent we also match another very important aspect, that of identifying the individual aspirations and values before recommending a candidate for selection.

Another important dimension of selection is not only gauging the skill and competence fit but looking at the interpersonal adjustability. This factor is not only important for maintaining the existing equilibrium but also for the induction being long lasting. A frequent exit displaces work and efficiency as well as adds to avoidable costs and expenditure. Each new induction brings with it risks of a host of problems. Apart from acclimatization, managerial and leadership skills do make a difference in building and maintaining a winning team and frequent exists take a toll in disturbing organizational harmony.

We have detailed process for recruiting and short listing of human assets and varied appropriate modifications are designed linked to the level and specialization. These processes are suitably modified and adapted to the organizations needs as well as the Job slot in question as also the availability of experienced persons of that profile. Our consultants understand and appreciate that, strategies and methodologies of recruitment need different handling for Senior Management, Middle and Junior Management as well as for different industries and locations.

Having years of experience we are also able to visualize and recommend methods and strategies for appointment, terms of employment contracts as also provide advisory services for creation of realistic compensation packages that will attract the best candidates and ensure their retention.

We achieve success in optimizing satisfaction for both the organization and the individual by creating an appreciation of objectives of each in the other so that no discord is allowed to set into the employer – employee relationship. To individuals we chart and facilitate the taking up of a career that has enough in store to meet the personal and psychological needs. On the other hand to organizations we sell a package of services that includes the placement as a human resource that would efficiently contribute to the fulfillment and realization of the Goals of the Company and mesh in well with organizational fabric.
