Vikas Thakur: A Formidable Force Transforming The HR Industry

In this technological epoch, the world has become a global market place. Organizations that want to lead the race in this market need to recruit and form a team of talented professionals. The CEO of Capital Placement ServicesVikas Thakur believes that workplaces are undergoing tremendous changes, and it is our responsibility to echo that change in the HR industry. The HR professionals are expected to make provisions and plan to retain employees, to create productive workspaces for them, and bridge the gap between the management and the employees. Furthermore, he has noticed that these professionals are nowadays faced with newer challenges that go beyond the traditional physical workspace, for example, addressing cyberbullying or aligning the employees’ career goals with the company goals. Through Capital Placement Services, Vikas is helping HR professionals tackle these issues.

Inspiration To Start Journey In The HR Industry

“I was always drawn to the idea of freedom and entrepreneurship. And working closely with people, instead of isolated from them, is an additional perk that I love!” says the versatile leader. What also made him choose recruitment as a career option was the excitement of the positivity he brings to young people, the opportunities it offers him to be innovative in his job and the excitement of continually changing competition, demands from the business, consumer expectations, etc.

We offer our services to ensure that the right candidate is available for the right job, and we take care to match the profiles.

Today, as the CEO, Vikas’ responsibilities are to supervise their daily operations, outline and implement financial decisions, reduce their time-to-hire, interact with potential clients, and figure out if their visions align to find the most suited clients for them. “I also sustain the structure and processes that bring in the potential candidates, help in their recruitment, screening, and sourcing, and most importantly, I network online and offline with potential candidates to promote our employer’s brand, to ensure we attract the best professionals,” says Vikas.

There is always a sense of fairness in our work,” says CEO Vikas.

Addressing The Pandemic Issues

Presently, COVID-19 has affected every industry & vertical, and the HR industry is no exception. Because of this crisis, all major recruitment drives are halted, and hardly any companies or brands are operating in their optimal ways. Even recruiters of Capital Placement Services are working remotely, off-site. To counter this issue, the company is focusing on new customer growth while meeting the dwindled needs of existing customers. It is also introducing a new job portal for recruitments, training, online skill management, and work from home strategies that are becoming more and more important in the workplaces these days. With his team, Vikas is trying to do so to ensure that their candidates are well prepared to meet the modern demands that the post- COVID-19 offices and employers are going to have.

Roadmap for 2020

The CEO has set three important agenda to achieve this year. First is the employment for 10,000 of their candidates. Second is allying with at least 100 new recruiters. And lastly, investing in newer technologies to keep themselves updated with the business landscape.

Industry Scenario

Over the years, the industry has undergone several changes, as well as the companies’ workplace culture in general. According to Vikas, it is natural that there will also be relevant changes in the HR industry. Most visibly the number and kind of facilities provided to employees are changing. Packages, perks, vacation days are becoming more customized along with things like work-from-home, which were almost unheard of in most jobs until a decade ago are becoming more popular, especially now. Employers are making extra efforts to ensure workers and their talents stay within the organization. He believes that there is a rise in a new trend that has emerged over the last few years i.e., digital job hunt. Employers no longer advertise only in newspapers and job fairs but also look for prospective employees in places like Linkedin, Placement Websites, and even Instagram or Facebook!
