Hiring blue collar employees such as drivers, delivery staff, maids, cooks, peons, office boys, housekeepers, babysitters, aayah, carpenters, plumbers etc. is one of the most daunting tasks to do so in a country like India. Employers belonging to the informal sector such as shops, salons, beauty parlours, food joints, clinics, freelancers, self-employed individuals, startups and other small and medium scale businesses have always felt a huge gap to connect with blue-collar job seekers. The traditional solutions Middlemen or Placement Agencies are costly, complex and proven to be ineffective.
Many times, these middlemen or agencies doesn’t allow to create a direct connection or/and direct relationship between an employer and a job seeker so that they can exploit both of them in future to earn more bucks. The reason is not only these middlemen or agencies but also lack of creation of right channels and education or awareness when it comes to using available channels. This problem and sector have remained under-served for a very long time but not anymore.
With initiatives taken by Government of India such as Make in India, Digital India, Startup India, Skill India and other initiatives to support these initiatives has improved the current situation. But still, we are far from what we need to achieve. These initiatives are focused to create more jobs; or create more entrepreneurs or rather micro-entrepreneurs who can create more jobs especially blue collar jobs; improve skills of job seekers so that they become more qualified to get a job and sustain in their careers and create awareness about digital products and technology among people belonging to BoP (Bottom of Economic Pyramid) from both urban and rural areas; not limited to awareness but also make these digital facilities and internet more available to them.
