TeamLease launched India’s first Job Hotline (600 12345) in eleven languages on Independence day, Aug 15, 2008. The need for a national hotline emerged from job melas organized jointly with various governments because of the poor access for labour market outsiders (less skilled, less educated, people from small towns, women coming back from a child break, retired people or students looking for part-time work, etc) to jobs and relevant training.
All callers receive a unique candidate ID and an upto 8 minute preliminary assessment that enters them in our proprietary job matching engine. Candidates shortlisted (based on education and skills) are to take a one hour advanced assessment at 150 centres across the country which will give them detailed feedback based on Knowledge, Skills, Aptitude and Behaviour. This detailed assessment substantially increases the effectiveness of our job matching algorithms and all assessed candidates will receive a call from TeamLease within 72 hours to talk about prospects, options, etc.
All candidates for whom our proprietary algorithms are not able to find job matches receive a call from our training counsellors to find the best fit our panel of training partners for short term courses from 15 days to 4 months. After training, they will be jointly certified by TeamLease and their upgraded profile will be re-entered into the job matching engine.
According to Manish Sabharwal, Chairman, TeamLease “An Unemployed or Unemployable Indian is not a free Indian. The 600 12345 service is our Independence day offering to India’s many labour market outsiders who have been handicapped in accessing India’s growth”.
The helpline is available from 8 am to 8 pm on all days including Sundays and will be available in eleven languages (English, Kannada, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Hindi, Marathi, Marwari, Oriya, Bengali, and Manipuri).
