People Matters Media launches today India’s first HR Marketplace, a one-stop-shop for HR buyers to find, shortlist and connect with service providers in the HR space.
HR spend in India has tripled in the last 12 months to an estimated of over INR 130 cr. The driver for this growth is the increase in demand for technology products and the need from organizations to buy more sophisticated tools and services in the recruitment and talent management functions. Cloud based HR technology; assessments and recruitment solutions are the fastest growing sub-segments.
Giving the context about the launch of HR Marketplace, Esther Martinez, CEO & Editor-in-Chief shares “for years HR buyers had had to rely on word-of-mouth or referrals to find out vendors and available products and that was a long and incomplete exercise.” This problem gets bigger and bigger as more players enter the space and the needs of the buyer are more sophisticated. “That is where and HR Marketplace comes in,” concludes Ester.
People Matters Media is India’s first HR media platform, with its multichannel products in print, tablet, digital, events and social media reaches over 70,000 Heads of HR & Senior HR. People Matters Media raised capital from the HR Fund over a year ago to develop its digital strategy.

The HR Fund is backed by veterans in the HR Industry in India and Singapore like Santrupt Misra, NS Rajan, Arvind Agrawal, Pratik Kumar, Devyani Vaishampayan among others.
