TALENT MONITOR REFRESHING THE HR ARENA WITH NEXT-GEN SOLUTIONS
Business Connect is renowned for its best-in-class editions comprising the success stories of various business leaders and their brainchildren. Here again, we are back with our exclusive edition of the month featuring numerous such inspiring tales. To make this read available, our editorial team had an interesting and joyful virtual session with the leadership panel of Talent Monitor.
The management and the Managing Partner of the company, Mr. Yash Singh shared numerous lesser-known facts about the company and also shed some light on his overall entrepreneurial journey so far. We truly hope and desire that this fascinating read will add some extra value to the lives of our global readership panel and will surely encourage them to break the barriers and chase their dreams.
Giving a detailed introduction to the company, Mr. Yash quips, “Founded in 2013, Talent Monitor is a full stack executive search and recruitment firm with unparalleled expertise in hiring for VC and PE backed ventures across early, growth, and late stages. We focus exclusively on full-time positions and currently do not have RPO and temporary/contract staffing practices.
From a geography standpoint, we have closed positions across the Indian sub-continent, North America, GCC, and APAC regions. While Talent Monitor has delivered recruitment mandates across industries, functions, and seniority levels, we have a unique capability to deliver tech/digital/eCommerce, finance, and enterprise sales roles.
We have a stellar track record of delivering mid-to-leadership roles across these functions.” Sharing more about his career and entrepreneurship beginning, “Right after graduating from IIT Bombay, I joined Russell Reynolds Associates which is one of the top-5 search firms globally. I learned the ropes of leadership advisory for 3 years with Russell Reynolds and then started Talent Monitor in 2013.
I went on to pursue my MBA from the Indian School of Business (ISB), Hyderabad but continued working on building Talent Monitor in parallel. At Talent Monitor, we got Larsen & Toubro as our first client where we executed the Project Director search for a Bangladeshbased power project, a role that was open for a very long time.
We successfully closed the position with a candidate from South Korea. Since then, we have worked with a multitude of companies across geographies. We have established ourselves as the go-to partner for Venture Capital and Private Equity backed companies for their hiring requirements.
Today, we are very grateful to have a client pool that includes names like Sequoia Capital, Nexus Venture Partners, Lightspeed, and Gaja Capital among several others. Time and again, we have demonstrated our unique capability to deliver difficult recruitment mandates and hence, reinforced our status as a trustworthy search partner.
Last but not the least, with our unwavering commitment towards client delight, we have one of the highest revenue-peremployee in the industry, comparable to the Indian entities of top global executive search firms.”
SURPASSING THE REALM
For the team Talent Monitor, R&D plays a crucial role in daily business. Whether it’s a service or a product company, R&D helps create meaningful ‘moats’ and helps a company differentiate itself from the competition. At Talent Monitor, the team strictly believes in investing heavily in R&D.
“We are innovating continuously to find new, faster, easier, and cheaper ways to reach out to a larger, more relevant talent pool in the quickest timeframe thus empowering talent acquisition teams at enterprises to become more productive and efficient.
We expect to launch a couple of products in FY’2023-24,” says Mr. Yash. Elaborating on the exclusive marketing strategies and key advertising, he adds, “There is just no substitute to ‘word of mouth’ for us. Talent Monitor, being a service company, focuses on delivering professional experiences that our clients can share with others.
We focus on doing so well that we get repeat mandates and referrals. In addition to that, we tap enterprise sales channels as well. More recently, we have increased our focus on content marketing to get inbound interest from overseas companies.”
The company is planning to utilize its internal accruals to grow the business on three axes – geography, products, and functions. With regard to geography, the team is planning to enter the EMEA market aggressively with a new office in Dubai.
On the Product axis, they plan to launch one consumer and one enterprise product to change the way recruitment is done currently. Both are under development and in stealth mode currently. On the ‘functions’ axis, the plan is to add Green Energy practices.
Before signing off, the visionary shared a few words of wisdom for the upcoming leaders out there by quoting, “I’d like to tell budding entrepreneurs to take bold risks, stay committed till you are about collapse and do whatever is in their hands to make things happen without worrying about things that don’t matter.
They should also know which advice to pay heed to and which ones to ignore. I believe in Albert Einstein when he said “it’s not that I am so smart, it’s just that I stay with problems longer”.
