Guruprasad Srinivasan, ED & CEO, Quess Corp, said, “Amidst growing concerns of a global recession, it is encouraging to see demand for hiring up in India. Such growth in headcount in a short span of two quarters, further solidifies our commitment to making India employable through formalisation and supporting economic growth in the country. We are happy and appreciative of our clients, team members, and extensive network of colleagues who have contributed to our rapid expansion over the past 15 years and elevated us to the fifth-largest staffing company in the world by headcount. ”
