Indian small and medium businesses (SMB) were among the worst-hit amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. And, to survive the economic stress, digitisation was the only way forward. However, they remained hesitant to hire permanent IT employees due to the liabilities involved in managing their own business.
Enter Vadodara-based Sharedpro —a talent mobility platform — that helps SMBs and startups hire full-time engineers from large IT companies when they are underutilised. In fact, Sharedpro allows them to work with the best talent without paying agency and payroll fees.
According to NASSCOM, India houses about four million IT and ITeS employees, and each IT major has at least 10,000 engineers on the bench each year. Sharedpro enables these underutilised talents to share their work on a dynamic basis, thereby making engineers more effective. At present, the platform is accommodating for engineers but would open up other job roles once the product scales.
