With the addition of learned and skilled employees, we aim at building a deep tech-enabled interface in our existing software, thereby catering the best services to our employees. This expansion will also help in accelerating our vision of growth and enabling an even better customer service experience for our clients.”
During its journey, Keka ascertained the industry’s need for an enhanced, tech-enabled, real-time and instantaneous client service, essential in the current pandemic-induced remote working set-up. Its employee expansion is a crucial part of this vision to serve customers better.
Keka is determined to hire nearly 65 per cent of the Freshers with 0-3 years of experience in the field. The next 20 per cent will hire Mid-level professionals having 2-5 years of experience, while the remaining 15 per cent will have openings for Senior-level leadership roles.
Keka has an employee size of close to 250, including interns. It provides an excellent environment of a corporate world. With its next hiring season, the company will be a great opportunity to work with, given its growth-centric guidance and training given to every employee. Ideal candidates would have knowledge of Payroll software and the HR department as well.
The company’s association of talent and behavior with productivity in terms of recruitment to expand the family has brought them to where they are today. Keka’s employee-first mindset did not let the pandemic’s wrath affect the employees’ salaries. Moreover, no layoffs were made during the time when other companies were sacking nearly 50 per cent of their workforce.
When asked about the key skills needed to earn a position at Keka, the company representative said they screen candidates based on their knowledge of the role, behaviour and dedication. A hard-working attitude matched with an analytical approach towards work and a passion for excelling at what they do will help candidates stand out from the crowd. Keka believes in fostering the personal career growth of its employees as well and is looking forward to hiring candidates who are ambitious.
Keka is on a mission to create inspiring digital workplaces where employees can do their best work. It all started when Vijay Y and Sashi P wanted to implement HR software in their growing IT services organization. Frustration due to the existing inefficient HR products in the Indian market and their poor user experience drove them to create an HRMS product, which the Indian HR fraternity truly deserved. Thus in 2015, the Keka product journey began. Unlike the traditional HR systems, Keka focused on solving complex HR problems in a simple and intuitive way. The product enables organizations to manage their HR processes from hire to retire while ensuring an awesome user experience for the employees. This is the major reason Keka has been embraced by 3750+ organizations within just 4.5 years. Keka, which coined the term Employee Experience Software, is loved by more than 300,000 employees in India. Recognized by some as the growing market leader and by others as an HR tech disruptor, Keka has become the Tesla(TM) of Indian HR products.
