Speaking about the launch, Sekhar Garisa, CEO, foundit (previously Monster APAC & ME), said, “Recruiters today are grappling with multiple challenges – navigating numerous sourcing platforms, sifting through irrelevant search results and inefficiencies in communication and closing positions. At foundit, the four pillars of our latest tech innovation address these challenges head-on. With access to talent on and off the market, candidate profiles with Smart Insights, and AI-powered Magic Search personalised by organisation, recruiters now have a comprehensive solution to be more agile and efficient. Since rebranding last year, we have been committed to going beyond merely solving problems to anticipating and building for the future.”

Following the brand evolution of foundit from Monster last year, this launch marks a key milestone in the company’s vision to enable and connect the right talent with the right opportunities using tech innovations that will redefine the future of recruitment. Towards fueling its product-led offerings and market expansion, the company in 2021 raised ₹ 137.5 crores in a funding round led by investors Akash Bhanshali of Volrado Venture Partners and Mohandas Pai of Meridian Investments with participation from Quess Corp, its parent company.

Commenting on foundit’s role in realising its parent Quess Corp’s future-forward strategy, Mr. Ajit Isaac, Chairman, Quess Corp, added, “With India on the path to becoming a $5 trillion economy, there is no doubt that employment will be a key driver across sectors. Increasingly, skills-based jobs have become critical and hence technology will need to assist recruiters in enhancing productivity to find the right fit especially when it comes to white-collar jobs. At Quess, we have always been at the forefront of service-led offerings, and through foundit, we aim to redefine the current traditional recruitment norms and usher in a new era of efficiency and precision.”

As part of its commitment to advancing the recruitment landscape, foundit has strategically invested in developing this solution and taken a giant leap to define the future of recruitment.
