We had this amazing opportunity to meet up with Kaptco Talent Solutions, a leading contract staffing company in Bangalore today.
Kaptco was founded by Karthikeyan Murugan in the summer of 2010. Although they started off as a company catering to BPO's, they quickly figured their niche in the telecom products/solutions startup industry. They leveraged their core strengths in this niche and helped at least 4 telecom product/solutions startups scale up to 200-300 people companies.
The learning from that success is was recognizing one’s niche and sticking to it is the go-to thing in today’s world. It is true for individuals as well as organizations. Truth be told, contracting in India is still not matured and contract jobs are still frowned upon. Being mindful about contracting in India and sustaining a business in cut-throat competition is an art by itself.
Startups typically have limited bootstrapped budgets before getting funding. Thus, hiring the right resources is one of the key challenges any startup faces. That is where Kaptco adds value to businesses. They have a streamlined process of identifying key talent and training them to match business requirements.
Workflexi partnered with Kaptco in the capacity of providing resources on contract who are immediate joiners and qualified, validated job seekers.
Staffing is a zero-sum game, it has to be fast and maintain quality. Clients expect speed, quality and price. Successful vendors/partners like Kaptco help strike the right balance and thereby add a little extra to the seemingly ordinary job of hiring.
