Taggd, the recruitment solutions arm of PeopleStrong, today said that former Aon Hewitt Chief Executive Officer Sandeep Chaudhary has joined its Board as an Independent Advisor to help chart Taggd’s growth strategy in India’s rising recruitment market.
A seasoned business leader, Chaudhary is an advisor to Private Equity backed businesses. His forte is building a value creation plan focussed on Talent & Organisation transformation and assisting them through special situations like, M&A, IPO readiness and emerging markets.
Speaking on his new role, Chaudhary said, “The recruitment industry is ready for its next wave of disruption. Leveraging Data and AI will build a lean, clean and an unbiased hiring machine. Businesses struggle owing to not finding the right talent in time. Taggd presents a distinctive value proposition and potentially can be the first and next big frontier in the recruitment space across India and other high growth markets.”
After moving from Aon Hewitt early this year, where he led remarkable growth with a series of acquisitions and divestitures as the CEO, Chaudhary is also an Advisor on human capital issues to the Government of India (GoI) & Government of Sri Lanka. He is also on the Advisory Board of the Centre of Corporate Governance & Citizenship at IIM Bangalore, as well as at Cornerstone Venture Partners.
