The oil boom since 1980s in the MENA (Middle East &North Africa) region generated a host of employment opportunities and consequent manpower demand not only in the core Oil & Gas sector but also in sectors like Construction & Infrastructure, Technical Services, Hospitality, Healthcare, Manufacturing, Retail, etc. and the ancillary services that catered to these industries. Thoughthere was an explosive increase in the number of recruitment agencies catering to the MENA region,very few of the newly sprung recruitment companies were able to provide professional service to clients.
For Raju and Bhavana who themselves were based in the UAE in the Banking & Finance and Hospitality sectors respectively, it all began with a dream, one that would touch and transform the lives of not just clients by giving them a one stop solution to all their pain points in the areas of recruitment from India, but also of the other important stakeholder- aspiring migrant workersfrom our country. “The challenge was to differentiate ourselves from the hordes of recruitment agencies and to emerge as a leader in the International Recruitment market, offering clients viable, innovative and practicalrecruitment solutions as per the verticals/domains that they did their business in,” says Raju Monga, MD & CEO. And thus was born Bangalore International Placement Services Pvt. Ltd. (BIPS) in 2005 by Mr. Raju Monga& Mrs. Bhavana Raju, Co-Founder & Director.
The Silver Lining
To attain greater heights of success, Raju and Bhavana has worked tirelessly to set up a team of qualified and experience recruiters and technical consultants from different industry
sectors. “As we acquired new clients across various industry verticals, we concentrated on understanding the client brief, their business processes and systems and their manpower needs. We then co-related the requirements and the demographics, social indices, cultural issues, economic conditionsavailability of skill sets across India. This has enabled us to offer our tightly focused and well managed recruitment campaigns and services as per the availability and even employability of candidates across India for catering specifically to each industry,” says Raju.
