A few days back I visited my Bank’s ATM (Automated Teller Machine), which is around 8 miles from my office. I decided not to let go of my favorite parking space (under the shade of the tree, where my car would not get too hot in the summer) and instead to take an Uber to the ATM.
As I was waiting for my Uber, a thought struck me, what if there is an Uber business model for the banks? Do I really need to go to the bank or the ATM? Can we take the financial services beyond the banks? Yes, with e-banking and mobile banking, most of our banking needs are satisfied at home, yet we still do need to go to the banks and the ATMs for other services.
This is a post contributed by one of our new employees regarding the importance of employee engagement.
Empowered employees are more productive and create a positive environment in the company! I wonder how many companies consider and execute employee engagement as a strategic activity. I have been working in the IT industry for over four years and was on a lookout for new opportunity, and I was fortunate enough to get some reasonable offers. In all honesty, money wasn’t always the priority or the concern of moving on to a next job.

Employers have evolved over a period of time in big data recruitment, all employees are purely based on their hard skill sets in recruiting with a proper understanding whether a candidate would fit into the very fabric of the company or not.
Human resource specialists have employed many strategies in big data recruitment such as having strategic gatekeepers and focusing on behavioral aspects of the candidate.
The most popular example being the Southwest Airlines asking their own employees to be gatekeepers and giving them autonomy to choose their future co-workers.
This ensures Southwest to employ like-minded dynamic individuals with a great sense of humor which is the very fundamental culture of the company.
“Disintermediation” is the defining feature of the digital age. Innovative technologies are making the middlemen obsolete. I still remember my father opening his encyclopedia when I asked him a question that stumped him.
I don’t think my children would ask me anything. In fact, they will quote all the information from the likes of Wikipedia, Answers.com, ehow, and so on. Wikipedia was a pioneer in disintermediating the encyclopedia.
Blog 2: “Thanks to Antra’s Marketing Team to have my thoughts published on Antra’s website “- Jagjeet Kaur (Technical Recruiter Antra, Inc.)
I (Jagjeet Kaur) work as an IT recruiter to find talent for Antra’s clients and I wanted to share my experiences on why counting on job boards is like buying a lottery. Maybe it is not if you compare the exact odds but that’s how I feel when I think about this topic! It’s been over a year that I have been working at Antra (a leading IT consulting/ IT services/solution company)and my luck in finding relevant candidates on job portals has been very minimal. And I almost never find the right applicants for any immediate openings (good applicants needed in less than 24 to 48 hours).
