We hear the same thing over and over again these days. “Diversity” is hot and controversial at times, a lot is being said than done. It is pretty fashionable to mention it to become a part of those so called kind at heart and thoughts. People do it more as a gesture of being generous, when it should have been the most natural thing to do.
The world is not all white and black anymore, it is way more racially mixed and complicated than ever before. Would be unjust to kind of hijack the word and never actually mean to get practically serious about it. From hot shot VCs to major companies boast their racial and religious richness and that they care about it deeply, when we see too little happening in reality.
This year at SaaStr Annual we learnt that there were actually some from those top notch that were not just using fancy language to look modern and hip, it was applied and implemented as a norm. Still feeling pretty proud to be the only founders from Pakistan in an event like this, the crowd had people coming from 47 countries. WebHR was honored to have the opportunity to be there, learning and observing a very special need in the market for a company like ours.
A lot of them looked pretty surprised to see a sophisticated serious SaaS company from this region that has spread its wings globally. Most of the feedback was promising and positive, we had advices and honest ideas fed to us by the major players in the industry.
That being said, it not just boosted the companies morale,it registered the fact we were doing something that most of the companies have not even thought of doing . WebHR has broken into most complicated markets by being diverse and providing a futuristic solution in multiple languages.
The motto is simple, we grow and scale and penetrate the markets that were dominated by softwares that people were struggling to understand and cope with. We innovated the age old ways of doing things, not because we were crazy but because we felt it was time somebody did that. I know a lot of companies would desperately try to get an investor on board at this stage and get things going to a new level, kill me for saying this, WebHR has different focus. We have learnt the art of lean and clean and are busy building it like we wanted, solving problems like we should.
Raising rounds too quick can be wonderful and overwhelming at times and observation and market trends tell us, that drop in the valuations that fluctuate with downward trends can be pretty lethal. The focus towards market sensitivity should be clear, WebHR has gathered a Hire to Retire strategy and has given it out to the world with multilingual interface, a smart and well thought out plan to serve the markets deficient in sophisticated technology. What could be better than this, people not struggling with tricky solutions that provided too little against a huge chunk of money, something they dread to do but have no other option. Opening channels for them has been a satisfying job for WebHR, which tends to open new avenues. Reaching and grasping scores of companies from Nigeria to Vietnam, from UAE to Mexico , reaching out to 193 countries on the map. True “diversity” not just as a multilingual solution but being geographically diverse when it comes to customers. Having a dedicated team that makes this dream come true, WebHR is destined to be the primary HR tool in the cloud
