The Client

Our client NIIT Technologies is a leading IT solutions organization, servicing customers in North America, Europe, Asia and Australia. It offers services in Application Development and Maintenance, Enterprise Solutions including Managed Services and Business Process Outsourcing to enterprise in the Financial Services, Travel & Transportation, Manufacturing/Distribution, and Government sectors.

The Challenge

NIIT technologies were hiring graduates with 0-2 years of experience for partners Aon Hewitt Plc. in their backend processes to deal with their customers in North America. There were strict guidelines from Aon Hewitt’s side that the candidates must be necessarily non technical graduates, and should reside in Delhi NCR. As the role demands dealing with client base in North America, the shifts were more skewed towards evening and night.  Over this NIIT was struggling hard to make their ends meet as lot of candidates landing up in their interview rooms were either found to unstable, incapable and at times even overqualified. The conversion rate was abysmal at 10%. has the proven expertise of sourcing the best available talent in a particular domain by making good use of technology and appending it by a human touch, thereby making staffing a fun and seamless process.

Youth4work Approach and Solution:


To meet the challenges of our client NIIT Technologies, we created a YChallenge, a test customized on the needs and requirements of the role at Aon Hewitt. This helped us to screen out the non serious candidates, who either applied for the job or matched the desired profile.

Posting of the Job:
The JD of the role was posted on our platform, which has a global reach, hence reaching out to maximum target audience in a cost effective manner.

Based on the Yscore, need, interest, inclination and profile candidates were scheduled for the interviews in a timely and smooth manner.

Telephonic Round:
A dedicated telephonic interview was organized for the aforementioned candidates. This helped us to weed out further un matching candidates based on their viva voca on telephone.

Quality and not quantity:
We at believe in high conversion rates of our clients, which make the recruitment process an enjoyable process. Our mandate is to send the most deserving candidates other than sending in nos.

Strong follow up and Feedback:
We believe in learning from any synergies which we may develop among our clients and candidates. We’d set up a robust feedback process to look into the various intricacies of the interview process w.r.t. both interviewee and interviewer’s perspective. This helps us to serve our esteemed clients in more congenial manner. 

The outcome was very positive, and the nos. of closures, i.e. those candidates who were selected and accepted the offer letter to work for Aon Hewitt in their backend operations were a healthy 13 out 46 candidates, a healthy percentage considering the arduous and demanding work conditions.

  • Conversion rate was healthy, hence saving client’s valuable time and energy.
  • They were satisfied by the candidates sent by Youth4work, as there were no instances of ambition mismatch.
  • The pre assessment test undertaken by candidates helped them to tackle client’s own online assessment module.
  • Finally, client was able to deliver quality candidates to Aon Hewitt, in a relative swift time, thereby catering to their urgent and crucial vacancy.

I engaged as a staffing partner for recruiting graduates for backend processes at Aon Hewitt Plc. I was thoroughly impressed with the speed and methodology of the entire process. Moreover, the entire process was transparent, and I was able to track the progress of the conscription. The rate of conversions was phenomenal at 30% considering it was graduate recruitment. The candidates sent were pre assessed and had optimum idea regarding their role and organization. I recommend as staffing partner for anyone who wants to make their staffing process seamless and enjoyable.”
