The Silicon Review
When the right person is doing the right job, a business thrives. However, finding the right person takes time. The demands of running large operations may interfere with effective recruitment and at the same time when business thrives, time bound effective recruitments becomes essential. This is where Productiva comes to rescue large Indian and MNC IT organizations by providing quality IT recruitment services in the domestic and overseas markets.
Founded in May, 2010; Productiva provides quality and effective IT services to Indian and multinational organizations locally and overseas. Productiva has its headquarter in Bangalore and a subsidiary in Texas, America in the name of Productiva USA Inc. Productiva is very well supported by its business alliance partners in Dubai, Riyadh and Nairobi, Kenya.
The name Productiva may speak for itself, but so too does good word of mouth, which this company has in spades. A leading example of visionary leadership and operational excellence, “At Productiva, we provide IT recruitment services on contract, permanent and project specific outsourcing, we understand the domain, technology, urgency and client’s culture which is the recipe of our success” says the CEO Ms Shenaz.
After specializing in Contract & Permanent IT recruitment services, Productiva moved into Leadership Hiring Initiative last year, being one of the few companies and vendors in India having multiple open positions catering to the market in this space. Today, Productiva offers specialized Leadership Hiring services to Indian and MNC organizations in US, Middle East & African and Indian markets. “Confidentiality, Integrity, Client work-culture, Strong Background verifications and reference checks and of course a maximum fitment in terms of JD”, is what all the clients look for and we understand and deliver this, says the Head of Client Services, Director Mr Wasim.

The company also has a tie-up with an Indian market leader in providing Municipal eGovernance Solutions and represents them in Middle East, Africa and American markets, with sufficient resources to implement such solutions around the globe. Productiva also does specific consulting in the fields of Branding (Business & Marketing Plans, Collaterals, Banking software alliances roadmaps). Recently one of the fastest growing construction companies in UAE approached Productiva to ramp-up their branding and it was an offbeat solution moving away from the 1960’s styled marketing collaterals to year 2020, with the entire marketing portfolio being revamped and a very interactive website being done, along with of international standard marketing collaterals being designed and delivered in a cost effective manner.
Services beyond satisfaction
“Working with Productiva is like working with our own internal team, we can trust them with our confidential subjects, as we know that they understand our business, work culture and more than anything our expectations are always matched. It has been a pleasure to be associated with PRODUCTIVA and we are keen in maturing this relationship globally”, says Parag Sharma (CEO of a web technology development company started by IITians based in US & Bangalore).
With a proven track record of optimum client satisfaction and meeting deadlines strictly, Productiva serves multiple Tier 1Indian IT firms and leading Multi National Companies in India and overseas, including Big 5 consulting firms and leading US tech offshore set-ups.
The key differentiator is “Productiva’s Quality, Quick turnaround time and Customer centric approach that helps the company always be a step ahead from its competitors”, adds Mr Wasim.
The journey towards business expansion
“It all started with a short & sweet conversation, when this particular client asked why can’t we serve them in US. At that time we were serving large tier 1 Indian MNCs in the domestic markets, enjoying our customer focused approach and quality work with proven track record. It is then that we started our US operations and today it is a subsidiary
organization in the name of Productiva USA Inc. We have a JV partner Mr Vivek Awasthi, who comes with a very strong service delivery experience of 18 years having served some of the best names in US markets like Abbott Labs and Cap Gemini, who runs the show from our Allen Texas office. Today as we are expanding team Productiva, we are moving to a larger state-of-the-art facility situated at Brookfield area on ITPL main road in Bangalore, which will be ready by December 2014, post which we are going to strengthen our North Indian presence and perhaps open another regional hub in Hyderabad & Chennai next year”, adds Mr Wasim.
“Strong career development, proven processes, amazing learning curve, friendly working environment and enviable clients to work upon – this is what we offer to our Productivians and this is why and how we are able to reach where we stand today”, says Ms Shenaz.
