I got this piece of information recently regarding Indian Recruiter’s Day which is today. March-09.
For close to two decades now, recruiters in India have been forming the bridge between the demand for qualified professionals and the available talent pool in the country. The booming economy has been riding confidently on the back of an extensive network of Recruitment Consultants across the country, who have over the years streamlined their efforts in the best interests of job seekers and employers alike for identifying new avenues to tap talent.
One of the trends that emerged over the past few years WAS THE NEED from corporates to have recruitment consultants as partners in their endeavour to grow. With the advent of contract staffing in India, several International players entered India through acquisition of established Indian recruitment firms, which in itself is a recognition of the Indian recruitment Industry and its contribution to the growth of the Indian economy.
On March 9th, six years ago a group of senior professionals from the recruitment industry met and conveived of an association that would represent the needs and aspirations of the industry as well as strive to eradicate unethical practices.
What resulted from that rendezvous was ERA (Executive Recruiters Association) – a non-profit Chamber of Commerce representing Indian Executive Recruitment Consulting firms. Registered in 2002, ERA today has 8 chapters and 140+ members spread across India. ERA represents the interests of Search, Staffing and Selection firms. ERA member firms account for more than half the Indian recruitment industry revenue and include most of the large recruitment firms in India as well as international firms. Whether it is lobbying, training, industry growth, interests of member firms and recruiting professionals, over the years, ERA has grown to be an organisation that is the Voice of the Indian Recruitment Industry. The turnover of the organized recruitment industry last year was US$ 1.5 billion by Government estimates and is slated to grow annually at 30% to 40 % in the coming years.
Many leading corporates around the country, both Indian and MNC, have supported the ERA cause and have been sponsoring ERA programme & conventions – proof of sustained partnership.
Since its inception, ERA has been the torch bearer of ethical practices and to this effect, it has brought Recruiters from across the country under one roof and pledged to adopt only the best, fair & ethical practices in recruitment.
Acknowledging the dedication, sincerity and integrity of its recruiter members, ERA is proud to announce March 9th each year as the Indian Recruiters Day.
The Indian Recruiters Day is a day of celebration for the reruiters of India. A day for all of us recognise the efrorts of our Recruiters, a day to felicitate and honour our recruiters. Over 300,000 recruiters from across the country will rejoice in the light of the acknowledgment of their efforts to the Indian economy.
On this day, ERA is planning a number of activities at each of its chapter locations to bring together all the recruiters. ERA will provide a platform for recruiters from across organisations to meet each other, be recognised, develop bonding amongst themselves, share their experiences, learn from each other and showcase their talent. Above all, it is a day for recruiters to feel proud of their profession that touches and empowers professionals to realize their latent talent.
