Recruitment portal offers ‘basic pay’ to beat job insecurity

When was the last time you felt the absence of ‘me-time’? It’s true that most people have no time for themselves. They are stuck in their daily 9-5 routines, and prefer the security of a permanent job even if it stifles their freedom to ‘just be’. Here is where offers fixed term contract jobs. The uniqueness of this is that when a person is in-between jobs, Workflexi’s platform offers a ‘virtual bench’ and pays the jobseeker one month’s ‘basic pay’ under the Basic Pay System (BPS) at no cost to the job seeker. None of the standalone products or services provides this facility in India.

If the candidate is able to remain at a job for six months but abruptly terminated in the seventh month, Workflexi will pay the candidate one months’ basic pay to take care of their immediate financial needs.
