Sampath Kumar P Entrepreneurial Journey: Building HR Tech Company that Serves “Digital India and Skill India”
- Friday, 11 Feb, 2022
Technology is disrupting our lives. Be it the way we work, relax, travel, or manage our money, new technologies have profoundly changed the way we move through the world on a day-to-day basis. A business is composed of its people, which is why the HR function is so important. Talent acquisition, employee payroll, compensation, HR analytics… every area of the HR function is touched by automation and will become increasingly reliant on it. Leaders must consider how to navigate organizations through the disruption caused by automation in general and HR tech in particular.
HR technology (human resources technology) is an umbrella term for software and associated hardware for automating the human resources function in organizations. It includes employee payroll and compensation, talent acquisition and management, workforce analytics, performance management, and benefits administration.
HR software can securely store data, automate daily processes, and provide analytic tools to drive more strategic decision-making. Functions such as pay, benefits, recruitment, onboarding, performance management, and employee communication can all be managed on a digital HR platform. Automating these processes not only saves your business time and money. It also reduces opportunities for human error, limiting liability and preventing costly mistakes from occurring. Cloud-based HR software is accessible from anywhere, making it perfectly suited to the current work-from-home climate. Employees and employers can upload or check data from home or on the go.
HR technology is no longer optional; it is essential for an organization’s success
In the 21st century, this HR technology is no longer optional; it is essential for an organization’s success. Research shows that organizations that use HR software outperform those that do not. HR professionals who don’t take advantage of software may fall behind. What’s more, HR technology in 2020 has developed at warp speed over the last year, to meet the changing needs of businesses. HR technology is more integral and better integrated than ever before.
Once thought, an idea cannot be unthought. HR tech is here to stay – and organizations can use it as a tool for success and progress in a way that can be well-received by employees.
The same is the thought of Sampath Kumar P who is today running a full-fledged HR tech company, Shanno Corporate Solutions. After having worked for 21 Years in big corporates, MNCs, and other conglomerates like TVS Group, BOSCH Group, JCBL Group, and Surin Group as CHRO and instrumental in Implementing many OD initiatives including AC DC and many Employee focussed and Talent Management initiatives. The work was extensively related to the core of Talent Management and Organizational Development, Mr. Sampath
started his own venture of HR tech. He worked dedicatedly for 20 plus years only to find that there exists a huge gap in what the organization expects from HR Functions and what is being delivered to them.
The use of Technology in HR is also not optimum. The available technology in terms of HRMS Softwares is the mere replacement of clerical work of the HR department and nowhere adding value to the Core HR/Strategic HR of an organization. Hence, he decided to get into an entrepreneurial venture aiming at bridging this gap by starting up an HRTech Company.

Emotional touch behind the Shanno Corporate Solutions
After discussing core strategies and methods being adopted by the company, when asked about the reason for choosing the name of the company, in particular, Sampath
said, “Hmm… Shanno Corporate Solutions … it tells all, but the first name Shanno is the name of my Wife who left all of us 3 Years ago… It was her dream to set up an HRTech Company.
Company’s culture at Shanno Corporate Solutions
Company culture can more simply be described as the shared ethos of an organization. It’s the way people feel about the work they do, the values they believe in, where they see the company going and what they’re doing to get it there. Collectively, these traits represent the personality — or culture — of an organization.
A company’s culture influences results from the top to bottom. The environment in which they spend that time will largely dictate the quality of an employee’s professional life. If they work for a company with a strong culture that aligns with their own beliefs and attitudes, they’ll be more likely to work hard and remain with the company for the long haul. Sampath also has similar ideas for the company culture being followed at his company. It’s employee-focused, growth-oriented, and feels like a family environment .. more focused on the learning environment.
Success for Sampath is simple and straightforward
“If my purpose of starting a company is served, I feel I have succeeded. My purpose is to enable HR function with HR tech Tools and Techniques, improving and Developing Talent in an Organization. Support Organizations to Excel by Exceeding the Expectations (Our Tagline: Excel to Exceed)”
To get ‘referral ready’ what should be done by a company
Figure out the type of clients who provide your bread-and-butter. What are their business size, industry, and demographics? What are the key problems they’re trying to address? You need a way to quickly identify and qualify referrals to see where you need to focus your efforts. For Sampath,
“A Satisfied Customer is your Marketing Person, virtually … We believe in building Trust and Relationship than Business”
The future Plan of Sampath is comprehensive with a lot of challenges
“Build an Indigenous HRTech Company which will employ at least 1000 Technical / HR Experts serving the Industry in India towards Digital India and Skill India”
Sampath message to the entrepreneurial world
Entrepreneurship might seem like the business equivalent of trying to navigate uncharted waters — and in some respects, that’s accurate. Entrepreneurs are assuming tremendous risk, putting a lot of faith in themselves, and paving a lane within whatever industry they’re trying to crack.
They’re trailblazers in their own right, but obvious as this might sound, they’re not the first ones to ever blaze trails. Entrepreneurs aren’t alone in their ambition. No, they’re in excellent company — and those who came before them have plenty of sage wisdom to offer any aspiring business pioneers.
“Any Startup started with an intention to Make Money, will face obstacles and challenges that are obvious… but start a company with END in MIND … broadly speaking the Society in mind, think how you will be contributing to this … and finally, have patience.”
