Mumbai,May 5, 2022: With travel and dining-out now back with a bang, the hospitality industry is expected to account for 60 million jobs over the next few years - That's 8% of India's workforce.
There has never been a better time to join this industry. Kaam.com a tech-enabled staffing and employment platform for the hospitality sector that has been co-built with The National Restaurant Association of India ( NRAI), has partnered with India’s best hospitality brands to help fast track your skilling and recruitment while also offering exclusive financial benefits.
The platform offers access to employment opportunities as well as upskilling, training, and financial inclusion. Kaam.com is spearheaded by entrepreneurs, Rishi Khiani and Agnelo Miranda.
The platform uses Web3 technology including blockchain, machine learning, AI, and multimedia to create a modern interactive profile that replaces the dated CV. The hybrid online-offline approach to sourcing talent addresses the existing inefficiencies within the recruitment process.
Effective hiring has always been a challenge for the hospitality industry which was only exacerbated by the pandemic. 80% of India’s hospitality workforce is migratory and nationwide job discovery has always been a challenge for job seekers. Kaam.com is addressing this pain point through its offline-online hybrid model of talent sourcing. Its Blockchain-powered employee profiles provide authenticated employment and certification history.
The business has been modelled on three pillars: Recruitment, Skilling, and Financial Benefits. At its core, Kaam.com is a marketplace for employment opportunities within the hospitality sector that matches the demand for jobs with the supply of skilled human capital. It goes beyond just providing a job with a community approach to upskilling and future growth opportunities. The platform provides a suite of value-added financial services like salary advances, insurance, and benefits from ecosystem enablers like travel, boarding and commerce.
The team at NRAI led by Rachel Goenka and Pranav Rungta have been working closely with the team at Kaam.com to effectively address the pain points that the industry has been facing, as well as developing employee forward features such as skilling, training, certification, verification, and access to financial services and benefits. Restaurateurs, Hoteliers, Chefs and Industry stalwarts, are collaborating with Kaam.com to create high quality training content and certification. NRAI seeks to increase the pool of talent within the industry by accelerated skill development programs and local initiatives.
