Professional network site LinkedIn on Monday said more than 10 million professionals now use the platform in India.
LinkedIn India has also established a local leadership team to drive the company’s Marketing Solutions and Corporate Solutions businesses, it said in a statement.
“We have focused our efforts on creating a great user experience for our members, which helps them understand the power of their professional network in developing their own professional brand,” LinkedIn India country manager Hari V Krishnan said.
Members of LinkedIn India are using Answers, Groups and Polls to engage, collaborate and grow business opportunities across the LinkedIn network.
A number of brands in India, including Volkswagen, Jet Airways, CNN, ICICI Lombard and HopSim, see value in LinkedIn’s Marketing Solutions to target advertising campaigns at professionals across the board and build conversations about their brands with measurable and focused results.
LinkedIn’s suite of Corporate Solutions have helped recruiters from blue chip companies like ING Vysya Bank, Genpact and HCL reduce cost and time per hire in identifying and recruiting some of India’s best talent.
