Infosys and the Adecco Group, a leading global HR Solutions provider, are transforming the staffing industry by bringing together the power of data, domain, technology and speed to create a brand new business in the world of staffing, the Bangalore-based company said in a press release. “This is fundamental for introducing new innovations that help the Adecco Group unlock the opportunities of the platform economy, as well as transform the Adecco Group’s core operations,” Infosys said in a filing to Bombay Stock Exchange.
Powered by Infosys, the Adecco Group’s end-to-end online staffing platform Adia has already gained momentum across multiple cities in Switzerland and the UK, and will be expanding into more countries in the coming quarters. This new platform leverages the Adecco Group’s key strengths in the industry by providing scale, speed and agility to introduce new ways of doing business in the digital economy. Adia aims at revolutionising the industry by matching the demand and supply of talent more effectively and managing that talent more efficiently.
Targeting candidates and clients across multiple industry segments such as hospitality, events, logistics and many more, Adia makes it possible for employers to find temporary staff for short term assignments and provides a brand new experience to both clients and candidates. The platform’s algorithm matches jobs to workers based on skills, level of experience, and proximity to the place of work as well as the job seeker’s real-time availability.
The user can hire new staff, plan shifts, issue contracts and approve timesheets from this platform, all in real-time. Rajesh Krishnamurthy, President and Head of Europe, Infosys, said, “By bringing speed, scale and an innovative platform that connects candidates and employers, while enhancing the Adecco Group’s unique expertise, we’re powering change in the industry, helping the Adecco Group fundamentally redefine the future of staffing and realise its vision of the future of work.”
