Integrated platform of skilled, semi skilled and unskilled human resources
Explain your idea in details:
Objective is to fill the gap between demand and availability of the human resources. At one end there are people who are not able to utilize their skills because of unawareness of the demand. On the other hand there are people who are early looking for someone with desired skill set but not able to find suitable one according to their location and timing preferences. This on-line platform will allow people to register them with their contact details, skills, availability details e.g. geography, timing. They can also provide the service charges or can keep it undisclosed for one to one meeting. Will also have option to declare the availability for charity works. This platform will also provide the search page where different search criteria can be mentioned like free or paid support required, range of service charges, distance from some milestone, days and timing of the requirements. Like minded people can also form a group to provide or look for some service as a group. To materialize this idea development of a portal will be developed. Awareness programs among the communities will be used to provide initial support to self sustained model.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
It will have broad impact on individuals, institutions, communities , businesses. Any one looking for some human resources will get benefited by this. Like some working professional looking for some choreographer to help him in preparing for dance performance in his company. Or even working wives looking for domestic helps, this portal is going to ease the life of each and every person in society. Target population is across all age groups and all strata of people. Even people living on daily wages will be able to improve their monthly income and upgrade their standard of life. Industries and institutions will have access to unlimited access of required human resources. Improvement in the income will in turn increase the expenditure power of common man and will do its level of boost to different industries. Portal will also publish a periodic report on demand of resources of different skill set. This will encourage people to learn those skills to improve their chances of getting hired and will bridge gap between demand and lack of supply. Measure of success is the number of people registering on portal and the number of queries hitting.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
This platform will be an e-portal. To improve its reach in society, collaborations with educational institution will be done. Main source of income will be advertisements and sponsored entries in query results. Trade of relevant reports/data (off course in consent of the person) will improve sustainability. Portal will also have paid feature to provide the talent requisition support to corporates. It will use advanced AI and Data Analysis to provide the relevant and most suitable candidates. Even it will help corporates to reduce their current expenses on resource hiring. This portal will be free of cost for both resources and other one who are looking for the resources.
I am Piyush, 34 a software professional. Currently I am living in New Delhi. From my early childhood I always wanted to be of some help to poor and needy. And to make an impact on society. I strongly believe the most of the worlds problems can be solved by easy access of relevant information. IT has already played an important role in it. And still there are many areas where an strong impact of IT is missing. "Building a mission and building a business go hand-in-hand." - Great Mark Zuckerberg
