Speaking on the strategic investment, Ramesh Hande, Chief Executive Officer, Ikya, said, “We are excited about India Equity Partners’ strategic and value added investment approach and we are happy to partner with them. Ikya has the right strategy, resources and the will to become a leading HR services player, with comprehensive service offerings that include temporary and contract staffing, permanent recruitment, placement and career services and training”.
Gaurav Mathur, Managing Director, IEP, said, “We are convinced that Ikya is set on a fast growth trajectory.
