TargetHR: Nuanced Veterans Recruiting Executives with Sensitivity

Anil Kumar,CEOThough technology has bestowed the overcrowded HR industry with myriad of scopes, only a few agencies manage to shine because these opportunities come with their own set of challenges. 1986-born TargetHR is one such winner that has withstood the test of time; thanks to its ability to handhold candidates from the time of approach till they join. Reinventing itself everyday apace with upcoming trends & technologies, TargetHR utilizes automated resume screening tools and has recently invested heavily in machine learning tools to more effectively add to its ever-growing database, reach out to larger number of candidates and reduce TAT. While hiring, this Bangalore-based company’s nuanced consultants ally IT & non-IT recruiters to their educational background and interest levels (for instance, placing a BE graduate in IT recruitment team).

The Gradual Metamorphosis

Initially TargetHR was sourcing & screening candidates mainly through personal interviews & psychometric tests for Administrative & support staff industry. In 2000, the management found the goldmine in IT sector,
and parlayed that success into the U.S. IT sector (permanent hiring zone) by launching its office in Texas in 2007. 2014 gave TargetHR a new direction, as it forayed into SME sector to capture more of the Indian Market. Having cemented its presence in IT arena, the company diversified into the Indian Non-IT industries. After garnering such vast expertise, exploring the Executive & CXO levels of recruitment was its next natural target, since the segment demands advanced headhunting skills and immense market knowledge. In 2016, TargetHR penetrated into North America’s Contract Staffing division & Sales industry.
