Through its platform solving the problem of hiring Blue Collar Workers (mainly – manufacturing & construction, SMBs) which currently depends upon the friends and relatives of workers (word of mouth) employed in the factories/industries, by hanging signage board outside their factories or through contractors.
THE FOUNDER’S STORY: When and how did you come up with the idea for the business?:
We were visiting Industrial areas around Delhi NCR and there we saw that almost every other factories had signage board hanging outside asking for required workers.
For all the workers / labours to get jobs in SMBs (manufacturing concerns) they go factory to factory asking for jobs OR these labours / workers were getting jobs through their relatives/ friends.
Therefore to help these workers Theincircle.com build the platform to easily register and apply jobs directly to employers.
