-Steve Jobs

The recruitment process with Placewell HRD Consultants is not just recruiting or giving the recruitment responsibilities away to someone else.  It is under the guidance of DS Reddy that, recruitment process is much more of a relationship and is committed to boost the employment brand and to find the best talent possible, instead of filling positions and merely finding people who are qualified.

DS Reddy says, “I realized the tremendous potential and demand for the Indian Professionals in Africa. There was however a great deal of study, research and interaction with various employers in Africa and Middle East where hundreds of Indian expatriates were already placed well before Placewell came into existence.”
