MyKindOfJob.com crosses 1, 00,000 mark for flexi jobs

Updated: Sep 07, 2016 11:50 IST

New Delhi [India], Sept. 7 (ANI-Business Wire India]: MyKindOfJob.com has consolidated its first mover advantage, in the flexi job space, by signing up with over 500 employers and crossing the mark of 1,00,000 registered flexi job seekers.

Led by Ankit Bansal, a first generation entrepreneur in his thirties and an equally young team, MyKindOfJob.com had ventured into the flexible jobs space about a year back. Ankit sensed a big opportunity in this area as Flexi Jobs; which were till recently limited to just a few sectors; had begun to trend across the globe. He realized that India would not be far behind due to its IT capabilities and the willingness to adapt to new technology.

Initially, mind-set change was perceived to be the biggest challenge but to the pleasant surprise of MyKindOfJob.com team, the corporate world was simply waiting for a specialized flexi jobs portal. The biggest reason that necessitated a focused flexi job portal was that the flexi jobs were perceived to be freelance and part time assignments on the general job portals.

The fact is that the need for flexibility at work extends to full time employees too. It's about changing from the industrial age offices to modern office places where coming to work on a full or part time basis is fun.

Due to flexi days, flexi time, work from home and compressed work weeks the employees need to come to office less often than they did earlier. Flexible jobs save a lot of time spent in traffic jams and release a lot of time for maintaining a healthy work life balance. In a recent study by Randstad, out of 7500 Indian executives surveyed, more than half of employees (53 percent) prefer to work from home ( tele-commuting), while 47 percent said yes to work from office every day.

Gen Y is already demanding partial flexibility at work and Gen Z is expected to demand a much higher level of flexibility in jobs. Employees are increasingly asking why their job designs can not be flexible about the place of work, timing and days when today's technology has made it possible to work on anywhere anytime.

Several research studies have proved beyond doubt that flexi policy companies are able to attract and retain better talent. Productivity levels are reported to have gone up in these companies and costs have come down due to a better use of the costly office infrastructure. The employees too gain a lot by not having to commute daily or during peak office hours to work.

Employers have begun to respond and adapt to this change as the pluses far outweigh the minuses in terms of its impact on the bottom line? Companies which are not able to hire top of the line talent are able to do so by using the services of the best in class professionals on a flexi basis at lower costs. Employers have recognized the fact that attracting and retaining talent will be difficult even for large and reputed organizations as the employees are clearly giving a higher preference to work life balance over pay packages.

This trend is expected to firm up with the induction of larger numbers from the tech savvy Gen Z joining the work force. The writing on the wall is clear. The choice is to shape up on the flexibility front or ship out due to lack of high quality talent in future.

According to Ankit, the flexi jobs market is going to be so huge that their current achievement will look like the tip of the iceberg in a couple of years.

MyKindOfJob.com is aggressively hiring the best available talent to double their team size in the next couple of months. Ankit's top priority is to hire the best talent and give them their dream work culture with robust technology based processes of working.

MyKindOfJob.com is looking forward to scale up its operations by engaging even more proactively with the employers, campuses and the professional communities seeking flexi job options or wanting to leverage their unutilized skills, knowledge and hobbies. (ANI-Business Wire India]
