Born and brought up in Kolkata, and studied in Auxilium Convent Rachita grew amidst culture and learning. Her first job was with a stock broking company even before she completed her two year software course from NIIT. Marriage brought her to Lucknow and it did put a full stop at her stock broking career as not much of opportunity and companies were there in Lucknow at that point of time. She tried her hands on teaching but it did not interest her much.
She was yearning for a healthy work life and joined Candor Services as a Centre Manager. It was a Delhi based HR firm that specializes in manpower services. Rachita was looking after their Lucknow branch managing a team of recruiters. She was also responsible for their operation and smooth functioning in Lucknow. Candor services happened to her out of sheer luck as she was on a job hunt and was meeting people from varied industries. It was an altogether new experience with almost no exposure in the field of HR and no qualification or experience whatsoever. 2002 was the era of BPO’s and hence Rachita was actively engaged in doing recruits for BPOs. Things were going good when some problem occurred between the owners of the Lucknow and Delhi Branch which ultimately led to the closure of the office. Two years of fulltime experience in the HR firm really got Rachita interested in the field and with whatever little investments she had, she decided to open her own firm, Elance group. She did her bit of advertising in newspapers and recruited office staff for establishing her office in Lucknow.
Elance group today has grown Pan India providing manpower services to leading corporate houses based on requirements. BPO recruitment suited Rachita from day one and she developed healthy professional relationships with almost all the BPO HR’s in 2005 and did her frequent visits to Delhi. Even The HR managers would fly to Lucknow for recruitment and there was a healthy atmosphere of growth and development. With things going smooth Rachita decided to venture out and approached Vodafone which was Hutchinson Essar group at that time. It was the first telecom company in her kitty and with immense hardwork she did closed couple of their top positions. Since then there has been no looking back in her manpower consulting career.
Business grew with leaps and bounds eventually and Rachita’s husband decided to quit his full time job and started looking after Elance Group. Together they worked on expansion and had a new office set up in Kolkata and were planning for more offices but to their bad luck global recession hit the world economy. Many people lost jobs and truly recruitment was put on hold in almost all the corporate houses and this badly hit the work and income of the Group.
There was practically no work to do and they had to shut their Kolkata office but managed to keep the Lucknow office going. Rachita sighs and says it was the toughest period of her career and there was no result whatsoever for any amount of hard work she put in. But truly it was a temporary phase and gradually the markets opened but it indeed took a lot of time in recovering the loses. The damage had been done and it did shatter Rachita’s faith and confidence in work. A lot of hard work was required to comeback which eventually she did and regained her confidence but did become cautious in all her professional decision.
