Founder & Managing DirectorInternational Manpower Resources Private LimitedAfter the Graduation started to work as a Placement Executive for a leading Personnel Placement Agency in Delhi. The job involved initial screening, short-listing and conducting final interview with the clients for both technical and executive staff. The clients included some of the top Indian and multinational companies.
From 1980 – Till Date: Started my own placement agency A & B Associates in 1980, in partnership, in Delhi and within a time span of one year was able to position it as one of the premier placement agencies in India. During this period the company expanded its client base to include some of the top business houses, Hotels and industrial establishments in India to meet their demand for deployment on local and overseas projects.
The early eighties saw huge upsurge in economic activities in the middle-east resulting in massive demand for skilled manpower.Seeing the opportunity for meeting the client-specific demand for skilled manpower, I decided to shift base from New Delhi to Dubai. Thus MRS – DUBAI was born in 1987. The company was set up in partnership with a local sponsor, with all the management functions of the company being entirely looked after by me.
Dubai being strategically located geographically and being the hub and entry port of the entire Middle East, this office served as a focal point of all IMR activities. It served the dual purpose. Firstly, to be in close proximity with our clientele helped in understanding their requirements better & to establish ourselves as a professional management consultancy with an bandwidth to provide personnel not only from India but from the rest of the subcontinent & the Far East as well. Apart from sourcing manpower from India, specific skill requirements were handled from Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri-Lanka, Nepal, Philippines, Poland, Romania and Thailand, etc.
At the same time, this provided us with an opportunity to establish ourselves as a local placement agency for placement of personnel residing in the UAE for companies with the UAE. In addition it had provided us with the facility of mobilizing personnel in and around the Gulf. The initial construction boom being over in Middle East and the demand for general categories of manpower subsiding, resulted in a shift in demand for more specialized categories like Oil and Gas, Computer and other super specialty professionals. Recognizing the need of the industry for specialized trades, I decided to focus exclusively on these trades.
International Manpower Resources Private Limited was established in 1990 with this objective in mind and the company has over the years been able to effectively serve the needs of its clients.
Our main stream of recruitment is in the field of Construction, Oil & Gas and Petrochemicals. The categories include Engineers, Foremen, Supervisors, Highly skilled technicians, skilled/semiskilled workmen in various trades. The large educational and industrial base in India ensures a steady stream of such a professional at competitive rates.
With the Middle East economy slowing down due to fall in oil prices in the international market and lack of further investment, the demand for manpower also came down. Considering the volume of recruitment, maintaining local office did not offer any significant gain in terms of business. So IMR decided to shift its base back to India in 1997.
From a small beginning in eighties, I have been able to position IMR as a truly professional placement agency, which is recognized world over for its quality and client satisfaction. This is evident to the repeat orders we have been getting from our clients.
Being one of the pioneers in this industry has provided me with in depth understanding of the working of the industry and client's requirements, and I have contributed this in numerous articles I have written for news papers and trade magazines. Following is the details of some of my published works:
