Antal India Celebrates 9 years in India
On 15 August, Antal International completed 9 years in India. Joseph Devasia brought the brand to India 9 years ago and since then there has been no looking back. Antal India today has 35 offices across 14 cities, 100+ consultants working across offices in India and has filled more than 3000 assignments at the mid – senior level thus far. The Antal brand is India is known for its professionalism, deep rooted values and world class processes. By 2020 we plan to grow to 100 offices in India and build a legacy for ourselves.
“We always had deep admiration for India, its cultural diversity, warmth of the people and their entrepreneurial spirit. When we came to India we wanted to expand our market and bring our expertise to India. Today, 9 years since we first brought our brand to this great nation, Antal India has evolved and grown into a strong entity by itself. The team of extremely successful owners under Joe’s leadership is by far one of the best teams we have within the network. ANTAL India is a terrific example to the rest of the Antal globe of what a good, collegiate, cohesive and disciplined focused group can achieve by deploying the Antal business model. The Antal brand has grown and it continues to scale to the top, creating a niche far more distinct than any other recruitment brands in the market.
I always say that great businesses are built on the loyalty, hard work, talent and longevity of its great people: this is never truer that in your cases. Congratulations, for choosing the best idea in international recruitment; well done on your success so far; good luck for the future and thank you for all your endurance and efforts to date.” – Tony Goodwin, Founder & CEO Antal International
It is quite nostalgic thinking about the journey we have had in India over the last 9 years. When we started operations back in 2006, like with all things ‘start-up’ there was a feeling of self-doubt, fear of failure, wanting to succeed however tons of energy, enthusiasm and good wishes & support from friends and family egging us on. I take this opportunity to thank my family and close friends who have stood by during our formative days/years, and then colleagues within my business and the Antal network at large who have helped us get where we are today. With 34 offices in India launched over the last 6 years since we started franchising, all of us have reason to believe that the Antal brand has gained momentum and strength within the industry in India.
As we embark on our next phase of strengthening our presence and brand further, I believe we have got all the ingredients needed to gain significant market share in the recruitment industry in India. With the launch of the Antal Certification in conjunction with our career progression guidance, we have broken into unchartered territory. A program that will reassure ourselves of our ability and skills in this unorganised industry, giving our colleagues a clear advantage – the Antal Advantage – over the competition, and clients a much higher quality of service. – Joseph Devasia, Managing Director, Antal International India
