Clickjobs.com, the jobs vertical from the Bharat Matrimony group, has announced the launch of HRmeet.com, an online platform aimed at bringing together the best HR minds through shared ideas, knowledge and best practices. The 15-day old initiative is gathering steam now, with over 800 members on board since its soft launch.
The portal enables knowledge sharing through forums and provides aggregated content to empower executives in the field of Human Capital Management. The launch is synergistic with the group’s online offering in the jobs vertical, Clickjobs.com.
Speaking to exchange4media, Michael M Bala, Business Head, Clickjobs.com, said, “The idea is to have a consortium – a community building exercise – for HR professionals across India. We will look at tying up with people as the community grows, with people who are in the field of content, and with those in the area of training.”
The portal looks comprehensive with news updates, event updates, articles, blogs, opinion polls and more, and it is hard to believe that the edit team is only two-member strong as of now (design is separately accounted for). This number will expand as the community expands, but there are no immediate plans to engage in brand building through offline events.
“Not at this point... We might have conferences across the country, but that will be later. We also have no immediate plans of monetising the initiative,” added Bala.
The company does not have ambitions of getting into the training space, but is looking to engage the HR community with content sourced from training specialists in due course. Meanwhile, Clickjobs has started its online advertising campaign, and the spokesperson shared feedback to the site since its launch. “It is shaping up pretty well. We have received very good, positive feedback to the site on usability, navigation, accuracy of search and responses. It is definitely picking up,” he averred.
Clickjobs was launched in August 2005, and subsequently the group has entered the property vertical and the classified space through Indiaproperty.com and Indialist.com, respectively. Within seven months of operations, the portal claims to have registered over 100,000 job seekers, and features over 8,000 job listings from 2,500 corporates across industries and functional areas.
