There has been a major shift in the employee-company relationship paradigm across various sectors. As per Society of Human Resource Management, 57 percent of organizations view employee retention as a problem, and 22 percent of new hires leave their jobs within 45 days of being hired. Clearly, this is a case of poor communication and complying processes that has created this void in the functionality of several organisations. Kolkata-based Positive Strokes has helped several high-end organisations streamline its workforce processing through its unique blend of unlimited repository of research-driven content, contemporary templates and a variety of delivery mechanisms that are customized as per the clients’ needs and business outcome.

With the company’s core verticals - Learning & Development (L&D), Psychometric Tests, Strategic HR Process & Advisory, Functional Outsourcing and Students Capability Building Process (helping students in building talent as emerging leaders), its clients enjoy the benefit of an end-to-end HR solutions. Positive Strokes further performs a pre-diagnosis for calibrating to customer needs and post-diagnosis to evaluate
outcomes. The company had evolved into an L&D delivery partner to many corporates, as the program’s effectiveness had brought about profound impact both at an individual and group level among the participants. On the other hand, several soft skills like analytical thinking, and problem solving attributes amongst several others that cannot be taught are honed by the company’s Psychometric Testing, anchored by Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and later followed by a one-on-one counselling session for one point attention, which has helped many people to develop themselves at a corporate and social level.
