The COVID-19 pandemic changed the face of the Indian workforce. About 40 million workers in India lost their jobs due to the lockdown, impacting the livelihood of a large part of the Indian population. As the lockdown eases and worksites open up, many migrant labourers and daily wage workers are struggling to find the right jobs with adequate sources of income.
Shramik Bandhu is a new job hunt app launched as a CSR initiative of Prakriti E-Mobility in technical partnership with Prishitech. The mobile phone app is an employment platform for the skilled and unskilled workforce in India.
It offers categories across manufacturing, construction, hospitals, garments and leather, power and steel, construction, and automobile. Worker skills include those who are looking to work as carpenters, masons, electricians, plumbers, domestic help, gardeners, drivers, and more. It is available pan India in English and Hindi and can be easily downloaded from the Google app store.
“It gives me immense happiness to be able to provide a platform to the people who work day and night for us. This pandemic has changed each and everyone’s lives in different ways and this is the time to come together as one for the betterment of society and for its people. The aim of the CSR initiative is to connect labourers with companies across sectors such as construction, manufacturing, transportation, agriculture, and hotels. I would like to thank our technology partner Shailesh Dangwal, Director from Prishitech who is helping us make this possible,” said Vikas Bansal, Delhi based entrepreneur and Co-Founder of Prakriti E- Mobility Pvt. Ltd.
Shramik Bandhu will provide a common marketplace and will be free of cost for employees and employers to list and choose as per requirement, location, and experience. Workers can list themselves on the job hunt app, create a profile (Name, Phone number, Date of Birth) adding their Aadhar number and verification details. They can upload their text and video resume, and employers can choose personnel accordingly.
