In the path of making social acceptance for job skills.

Harpreet Singh Grover

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…

Give us an overview of CoCubes-business and its contribution in skilling India.

As a hiring and assessment company, the foremost strategy is to connect employers with candidates. When we started, we observed, it was about making the connection alone and we thought that is important. Subsequently, in 2011 we realized that connection Alone does not help. What matters ultimately is to figure out what competency the company would need to hire people and what competency people need to have.

Talking about the assessment practices, online assessments are the common practice. We bought a technology assessment company and started doing assessments online. That was a very big change for us. A greater responsibility came, as we need to measure the skills properly, we need to measure for a particular job in lines of what skill is required, and we also need to be able to back both of them.

We do skill measurements for 600 corporates pan India, including the largest IT companies, automobile companies, for all of whom, CoCubes hires candidates. Hiring, followed by a strong skill assessment practice of CoCubes helps setting a benchmark for the skills.

Then as the third step, in the last 2 and half years, we are associated with the government initiatives and Skill India to develop online and physical vocational skills.

Indian Realty In Search Of Earthquake Warning System

For us all, real estate is a term synonymous with structures and buildings. These buildings can be broadly categorised into industrial, commercial and residential setups. Being a developing nation, we usually observe realty development in clusters; where industries, commercial and residential spaces, all get their separate land parcels for construction. As a result, a city is usually filled up with offices, shopping complexes and houses built on tall skyscrapers. In the meanwhile though, since industries and plant and machineries get land banks around the outskirts, these units end up surrounding a fully developed city, which in case of a natural calamity can multiply the damage.

Skill India - A National Priority

Today, the world and India need a skilled workforce. If we have to promote the development of our country then our mission has to be `skill development’ and `Skilled India’. Millions and millions of Indian youth should acquire the skills which could contribute towards making India a modern country. I also want to create a pool of young people who are able to create jobs and the ones who are not capable of creating jobs and do not have the opportunities, they must be in a position to face their counterparts in any corner of the world while keeping their heads high by virtue of their hard work and their dexterity of hands and win the hearts of people around the world through their skills. We want to go for the capacity building of such young people. My brothers and sisters, having taken a resolve to enhance the skill development at a highly rapid pace, I want to accomplish this.
