Inductis, a management consulting and analytical services organisation headquartered here, has announced plans to increase its employee base in India by 150 per cent by the end of this year.

"Recruitment at Inductis forms a core activity of the organisation and is a well defined process," said Amanjeet Saluja, lead project manager for analytics services at Inductis that has offices in New York and Gurgaon near New Delhi.

"At present, campus as well as off-campus hiring has been intensified through various channels. The subsequent effort by the human resource department is to assimilate the selected candidates quickly and make them feel comfortable."

Inductis hires from reputed bodies like the Indian Institutes of Management, Indian Institutes of Technology, the Indian School of Business and the Delhi School of Economics, besides off-campus channels, referrals and alumni sourcing.

"We definitely want to be the employer of choice, aligning the personal and professional goals of the employees we hire," said Lalit Wangikar, the vice president for Indian operations at Inductis.

"Hence, in spite of the tremendous hiring pressures, we remain focused on making every new hire feel a part of the organisation from day one gauging what the employee is looking for vis-à-vis what best the company can offer," he added.

Started with a group of 10 people in June 2000, Inductis has a workforce of more than 180 professionals across its three offices, with over 100 employees alone at its Gurgaon office on the outskirts of New Delhi.

"At Inductis, openness, collaborative decision making and coaching are not mere buzzwords but the building blocks of the environment, something that is evident from the hiring process itself," said Nitin Goyal, a recent recruit.

"It gets carried over from there and translates into an easy camaraderie between the leaders and everybody else in the organisation," added Goyal, who was hired from the Indian Institute of Management, Lucknow.

Inductis helps large corporations leverage the information age to make better decisions through deep analytics, besides identifying high-impact problems and opportunities to generate quick results of immediate and lasting value.
