Focus Softnet, the leading software development company, today announced the launch of its new recruitment division to address the human resource and IT skills requirements of its customers across the Middle East. The new division will offer customers a wide range of services such as placement of skilled personnel including recruiting professionals for permanent or project-based requirements for all levels of the customer’s business, organizational development and training programs and HR outsourcing services.
“After working with so many companies in the region for over two decades, we witnessed a constant demand from our existing customers to provide skilled professionals to cater to the technical aspect as well as the operational aspect of our product portfolio, which has created a need for providing placement services specific to this niche. One of the biggest challenges that this industry faces is the successful quality fulfillment of the right kind of resources and with the launch of this division and our tie-up with IT Global Services, we are trying to bridge this gap,” explains Ali Hyder, CEO of Focus Softnet.
To meet the backend requirements of this new recruitment division, Focus Softnet has signed a strategic partnership agreement with IT Global Services, one of the top Executive Search Companies in India, which specializes in Recruitment Services catering to a wide spectrum of clients in India, Europe, Far East, the Americas and the Gulf. Focus’ recruitment division will be fronted by the company’s Vice Presidents, Mansur Ahmed, who is also the Managing Director of IT Global Services and Rohan Tejura, two highly qualified professionals with tremendous global experience and expertise in placements, organizational development and training.
“Mansur Ahmed brings with him years of experience of placing professionals across the globe with his company ITS Global in India, which has a strong team to support our skills requirements. Having placed over 12,000 professionals globally, Mansur is confident that Focus’ HR Services will bring the best talent available in the Middle East region. Rohan Tejura will manage the front end of the business by meeting our customers to understand their requirements and design solutions to address those requirements. As an innovator in IT solutions, entrepreneurialism and leadership, Rohan is ideally suited to drive our recruitment services division,” Mr. Hyder adds.
Focus Softnet’s new division will support all its global branches with recruitment and placement services, training and certification courses and HR outsourcing for small to medium size companies. “This division will act as the customer’s one point contact for their HR solutions right from sourcing, staffing solutions, executive search, training, assessments to OD consulting services. Our team comprises of quality professionals, who have a strong track record of retention success and long service. We also have a carefully developed network of highly skilled industry professionals across practice areas and are confident that we will be able to fulfill all aspects of our clients’ HR requirements,” says Mansur Ahmed, Vice President, Focus Softnet.
As an extension of this business, Focus Softnet has also tied up with IT institutes and Universities in India to train and certify students, which will create a resource pool of qualified technical specialists. Focus Softnet is developing a curriculum, where specialized courses would be offered to students on general ERP, basic accounting solutions, BI and system admin certification. As part of its broader plans, Focus Softnet plans to tie-up with UAE universities to offer these courses locally in future.
“Apart from placing qualified professionals on a permanent or contractual basis, we will be providing onsite training on technical skills set and soft skills within the client’s environment,” says Rohan Tejura, Vice President of Focus Softnet. “We have a network of highly experienced trainers, who conduct training and development programs that can align employees’ skills and behavior to what is needed and expected by the company. It is also the best development and motivational tool and with skilled staff, our customers can also expect better productivity. In short, we plan to offer end-to-end HR and recruitment services to our customers and in the long run set up a company in the Outsource zone to cater to HR requirements across all market segments,” he concludes on a high note.
