London, 27.08.2018

Transformify, a UK-based Freelancer Management System ( FMS),  is pleased to announce a partnership with Volunteer4India, a social enterprise, to further broaden the presence of Transformify in India. Through an India-specific go-to-market strategy to mobilize CSR funds around 'Employment Enhancing Vocational Skills'- listed under Section 135 of the Company Affairs Act, 2013, and to promote diversity recruitment among corporates, Volnteer4India will support Transformify’s mandate to reach corporates to help them access an India-wide skilled talent pool of under-addressed resources.

Gender diversity remains a top priority for many businesses in India. Workforce diversity is directly linked to the corporate culture, financial performance and social responsibility goals. In a survey conducted by Linkedin on the global recruiting trends, 81% of the leaders stated that diversity recruitment had a heavy impact on their hiring strategies. At the same time, the HR leaders pointed out the challenges they face in accessing a diverse talent pool and building a diverse workforce. 

The CEO of Transformify, Lilia Stoyanov, said, “we are pleased to work with Volunteer4India to help socially responsible organizations in India access an under-addressed talent pool. Enabling diversity hiring has a tremendous positive impact on the society as it increases the purchasing power, revitalizes the local communities and creates opportunities for people in need.”

Stating his excitement about the partnership, Ranjoy Dey, CEO, Volunteer4India said, “We are pleased to extend Volunteer4India capabilities to help Transformify bring an ability-diverse talent pool, that has mostly remained outside the ambit of corporate hiring efforts. Through our efforts, we aim to strengthen the inclusive growth and diversity hiring in a collaboration with the corporates, HR community, employment forums, government bodies, and the social sector that are strategically synergized for meeting the skilling targets and bridging the skill gap between the industry and workforce.”
