We approached Anu at a time when our organization was preparing for large-scale growth, with a potential IPO on the cards. As a US company managing global operations, we needed an HR head who could bring the discipline and rigor required for the company to scale, as well as someone with on-the-ground experience in different geographies.
Anu quickly developed an understanding of the strengths and challenges of our organization and helped us arrive at the ideal job profile that took into account the unique aspects of the role. She was able to communicate the right message to attract the best candidate to meet our needs. I felt she astutely grasped the candidate-culture fit we were looking for without us having to explicitly articulate it. When it came to closing the offer, she spoke for the organization’s interests while also realistically representing the candidate’s expectations.
She is thorough, structured and efficient in her approach and it’s no wonder that she successfully completed the assignment within a matter of three months! Anu is more than a resource; she is a partner in building our organization, and I would absolutely recommend her and her team to anyone.
“Her strong presentation, bringing out why a general management type person was needed in that phase of the company, enabled me to get all our interviewers on-board for the final choice. Overall, we had an excellent experience working with Anu, and a very effective one too as Ketera became the model for all Kleiner Perkins companies looking to set up offshore operations.” READ MORE +
“One thing about Anu that impressed me a lot was her emphasis on structured and thorough processes. As a result the quality and caliber of the candidate pipeline generated by Anu was far superior to any generated by our outsourcing partner or other recruitment methods and options we had explored in the past.” READ MORE +
“When we met Anu Parthasarathy for the search, we were impressed with her “can do” attitude and her ideas on what kind of person we should bring on-board. I believe Anu really gets what it takes to hire leadership for the social sector. She is able to convey the right message to attract the best talent from a larger pool, beyond the limited set of professionals within the NGO sector.” READ MORE +
