With this in mind, the cloud-based HR software provider is offering Asia-based startups US$10 million value in software to hire the right people.
Aqayo director Julien Arnaud stresses the importance of hiring the right people in any enterprise and says that the company is excited to help promote regional startups and the job opportunities they have to offer. “Aqayo provides powerful tools for growing companies to find and recruit the right employees faster and more effectively.”

Aqayo is no stranger to social-based HR recruiting. The team supports over 10,000 users in attracting evaulating and hiring the best talent through its customizable SaaS suite of applications. The service also helps build better relationship amongst talent and employers, as well as stronger employer branding.
The HR solutions provider’s list of clients includes Kraft Foods and Danone Indonesia, and spans both high-profile businesses and startups. In recent news, the company is in talks to fund development of a fully-mobile HR recruiting platform, which is very timely, given the benefits of a connected workforce in productivity and the bottomline.
