Regarded as the No.1 HR & Payroll software for Indian businesses, greytHR has announced its plans to double the number of working professionals and students trained through its academic initiative, greytHR Academy in 2023. Having trained more than 12,500 candidates over the last 3 years, greytHR now plans to initiate a placement drive in 2022/23 and offer its client base of over 15,000+ preferential access to this talent pool.
greytHR Academy offers a wide range of HR educational topics including payroll process in India, HR operations in India like recruitment and performance management covering the entire employee life cycle, payroll statutory compliance in India, new labor codes, Income tax, and payroll processes in UAE.
The Academy also offers a certified professional program, career education program and certificate programs for HR & recruitment executives in partnership with Management & Entrepreneurship and Professional Skills Council (MEPSC) under National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC), Government of India. Available for students, working professionals as well as those seeking jobs in HR roles, greytHR Academy helps them in learning concepts from a pragmatic perspective while also acquiring in-demand skills that can accelerate their career growth path.
Elucidating on the vision behind greytHR Academy, Girish Rowjee, Co-Founder & CEO, Greytip Software, added, “Armed with over 25+ years of domain experience in developing native HR and Payroll solutions for leading brands across the world, we wanted to give back to society by providing exclusive courses that are structured to meet current industry needs. With this thought process, we started greytHR Academy and are even empanelled as an Industry partner to impart HR training in joint certification with MEPSC.”
He added, “Covering HR and Payroll subjects related to the entire employee lifecycle, all e-learning modules and blended learning courses offered in conjunction with our training partners have been developed with meticulous care. We aim to expand our outreach, both through online and offline mediums, and establish greytHR Academy as the leading knowledge provider in the HR & Payroll domain going forward.”
While most of greytHR Academy’s courses are offered on their site and Udemy completely free of cost, only the blended learning courses require learners to complete a basic registration process. With 15 e-learning and 4 blended learning courses available in languages such as English, Hindi, Tamil, Malayalam, and Telugu, the course duration varies from 90 minutes to 60 hours and may spread across 5 to 30 days. Upon completion, every learner is awarded a completion certificate and enjoy the privilege of being part of India’s largest HR-focused talent pool in existence today.
The Academy has started connecting with MBA colleges to offer career-oriented add-on courses on HR & Payroll. The academy looks at helping MBA/BBA students to enhance their employability through this academic tie-up. While there are hundreds of add-on courses for engineering graduates, not many options are available for MBA HR students to gain practical knowledge on HR operations and payroll processing. This would also help recruiting companies to deploy the fresh recruits from day one.
A flagship product of Greytip Software that was founded in 1994, greytHR launched greytHR Academy as an in-house initiative in 2019 with the objective of developing competent manpower through a range of carefully crafted courses that are available both as e-learning courses and blended learning programs with online course provider Udemy.
