HireMee, a part of The Sona Group, wins Future Ready organization award by Economic Times HRWorld
Bengaluru May 9, 2023: Talent acquisition and talent management startup, HireMee, a part of The Sona Group, has been named as the Future Ready organization among young Indian startups for its innovative approach towards talent identification, talent management and commitment towards preparing the workforce for the future by ET HRWorld.
The 20-member jury made up of Amit Syngle, Managing Director and CEO of Asian Paints and Chief Human Resource Officers of 20 firms that included the Aditya Birla group, Airtel Payments Bank, Cummins India, Hindustan Unilever and Hiranandani group, picked up HireMee from a long list with inputs from EY as the knowledge partner. The leading HR practitioners weighed in on HireMee’s clarity of purpose, future orientation, effective communication as well as sustainable development efforts.
“While wide adoption of HireMee platform by customers is a testament to the value it offers, this recognition from ET HRWorld revalidates its power to assist corporates & institutions to win the talent war to deliver superior people management outcomes using HireMee’s wide range of assessment tools,” says Venkatraman Umakanth, Business Head and Sr Vice President, HireMee.
According to McKinsey research the experimentation underway suggests that future-ready companies share three characteristics: they know who they are and what they stand for; they operate with a fixation on speed and simplicity; and they grow by scaling up their ability to learn, innovate, and seek good ideas regardless of their origin.
“The Economic Times Future-ready organisation honour reaffirms HireMee’s mindset of competing by offering an AI-proctored skill assessment platform for graduating students from tier-2 and tier-3 cities on smartphones in order to democratize the recruitment process by connecting them to employers looking to hire pre-qualified talent,” says Chocko Valliappa, founder of HireMee.
The assessment services for students and access to prequalified talent comes at no cost to either. HireMee’s talent acquisition practice offers corporate clients an objective evaluation aptitude, coding skills across 40+ programming languages and core technical subject competencies.
HireMee conducts company-specific assessment tests to pre-qualify job seekers, including coding capabilities and psychometric tests, which help companies deploy HR resources for personal interviews and other selection processes. HireMee helps corporates in talent management through a range of skill assessments. While assessment of candidates and access to hiring companies comes at no cost to democratize the freshers’ recruitment process, specific assessments for the corporates and detailed diagnostics and skilling modules come as paid services to sustain the CSR efforts of HireMee.

Till date over 6 lakh students have taken this assessment and the HireMee platform has opened up corporate opportunities for about 2 lakh students.
