Ms. Bhavna Udernani MD Adhaan Solution
From working with the human resource company TeamLease to establishing her own HR consultancy company with a turnover of over Rs 360 Crore, Ms. Bhavna Udernani’s journey has been inspirational in more ways than one. The founder and managing director of Adhaan Solutions Pvt Ltd has battled her way past challenges right from the start like dealing with frequent changes in labour laws, managing labour unions and attracting the right talent to work for you when you are not yet a brand. Today, Ms. Bhavna is a member of the executive committee of ISF and her excellence was recently recognised by Startupcity Magazine, which named her, “Woman Entrepreneur of the year in 2019”.
Ms. Bhavna has not only undeniably held her own, but also stayed ahead of the competition. She always believed in offering clients end- to- end HR consultancy solutions. Be it critical issues such as notices and court orders or strategic hiring of personnel, her clients can completely rely on her tailor-made services to meet all their requirements. In the last couple of years, especially in the face of growing economic uncertainty and despite the absence of a strong sales team, the company has still grown organically.
On account of the impressive performance and the credibility they have earned, even during the pandemic period, when most businesses were badly hit, she managed to grow at about 18%. In fact, in the last 12 years, Adhaan has managed to maintain a steady growth pace owing to prompt delivery and services. With businesses in India being majorly people-driven, Bhavna predicts huge manpower requirements in the coming future. In the next couple of years, she also foresees dramatic shifts in HR services on account of market volatility.
Ms. Bhavna believes that they can no longer stick to an organic growth model, and has plans for strategic mergers and acquisitions to reach a projected target of Rs. 1,000 crore over the next three to four years. Ms. Bhavna is all set to evolve the HR industry with various tech and service products. Having led as Managing Director of her company and, and armed with 18 years of experience in the HR industry along with an ability to manage people and staffing business, Ms. Bhavna was kindled with the desire to add her distinctiveness in a process to learn, evolve and transfer people’s life to extraordinary. That’s the reason she picked this noble industry to venture a unique business model where humans are the core focal point of its products and services.
An independent, energetic self-starter, Ms. Bhavna brings to the business her unique empathetic leadership skills focused on ensuring that each client gets custom-fit solutions. She thrives on challenges and relies on her ethical grounding to ensure regulatory-compliant outcomes for all stakeholders. This dedicated and quality-conscious business partnership with her clients is the secret to Adhaan Solution being one of the fastest-growing HR services providers in India. In less than a decade, Adhaan has grown from a single office to having its presence in 23 locations pan-India and providing employment to over 1,50,000 people.
