To make a difference in the workforce ecosystem and truly uplift the labour workforce of India.
Hunar brings together two individuals driven by the urge to find solutions to real-world challenges-create a long-term impact on this oft-ignored sector.
On this journey to find a way to uplift the labour workforce of India, we realised that we need to first start with formalising this chaotic, informal segment. Lack of standardisation in jobs and skills, inefficient processes, lack of upskilling programmes, and technological solutions to streamline worker lifecycle resulted in companies and workforce agencies with exorbitant overhead costs, which trickles down to the labour workforce.
I'M AN ORIGINAL CATCHPHRASE
To truly empower the labour workforce, we set on a mission to build solutions that can standardise the entire worker lifecycle. Optimising processes, introducing transparency, and cutting overhead costs would allow companies and workforce agencies to join us in making our vision a reality.
As a result, we want to equip organisations with solutions that can help them shift cost savings into wages and more. Solutions to upskill their workforce, provide salary advances, insurance and a plethora of tools and ammunition to enable better financial inclusion and provide access to social benefits.
WHAT WE ARE BUILDING
We at Hunar are building tech-driven solutions for India's next-gen workforce ecosystem so that growth-driven companies can thrive!
With a vision to be a pioneer in workforce management, Hunar is building Workforce Cloud, a suite of standalone applications for managing different aspects of a worker's life cycle, on-roll and contract workers. Workforce Cloud aims to drive visibility across your workforce operations and optimise overhead labour expenditures.
