Started almost a decade ago by Harpreet Singh Grover and Vibhore Goyal, CoCubes has well created a mark in the hiring and assessment ecosystem. The CoCubes’ business,which has prominent verticals of corporate, college and vocational assessments, has conducted over two million assessments for 600 clients across 350 cities. Harpreet Singh Grover, the Co-Founder & CEO, CoCubes shares more about his assessment and skilling India plans, how equipped is his company to create assessments that directly tie in with current and future employability with greater returns…
