What we speak must result in numbers—this is not a frenzied number-driven CEO speaking but the wisdom of Kabballah. At Zycus, we are grateful that our numbers have not only helped us thrive as a global leader in procurement but have also helped manifest incredible followership on world’s most coveted professional social network, LinkedIn. Yes, we are cycling through gratefulness on crossing a very humble 75k+ connections’ milestone on LinkedIn.

Zycus’ LinkedIn Growth Data from FY2018

It was in early 2018 that Zycus decided to consolidate its offline and online presence and reinvent its LinkedIn profile that was so far merely informational. Soon the strategy team embarked on a journey that now reports an astounding surge in engagement over the last five quarters rounding off at a network of 75,000+ procurement enthusiasts, a feat to cherish! One could think that Zycus could have waited to cross a milestone of 100,000 connections before celebrating it so early, but hey, by virtue we believe in the celebration of little things that we grow organically, with lots of love and dedication.

If you know about the Japanese organizing consultant and author, Marie Kondo, you can believe us a lot better; in principle, we are tidying up our shortfalls and organizing those many lessons we’ve learned about creating value for our followers on LinkedIn. We mean sincere gratefulness to our followers who have decided to make the most of the value generation; we are happy to share our knowledge and expertise and enrich the community of leadership through our innovations in procurement.

When we asked Diptarup Chakraborti, VP-Marketing, he said, “Ranking no. 1 in the procurement category is substantial proof of our brand eminence in the market. From thought leadership articles to industry reports, and distinct procurement solutions for the established and emerging markets, today 75k+ connections is just an initiating testimony for every effort we put in to redefine global procurement.” Dixit Jasani, VP-Sales & BD, also emphasized the significance of Zycus’ LinkedIn presence. In his words, ‘‘The 75k+ connection is a reflection of our commitment to redefining procurement across industries and connect professionally with the business excellence drivers in the organizations.”

Joining the stream of gratitude, Aalok Purohit, Director- Talent Acquisition, says, “We are living in the era of HR 3.0 where RecTech is employing cutting-edge technologies like AI and ML to redefine the recruitment process. The potential active market pool of candidates is limited and open to all. Magic happens when we convert an absolute passive candidate to a prospect and over a period, showcase what we have to offer. LinkedIn works as a super-catalyst in this journey and makes Recruiters the true Sourcing Ninja in a virtual world of talent.”

What can be even more humbling when Aatish Dedhia, CEO of Zycus Inc, says, “LinkedIn has been a great platform for businesses and professionals alike. I am sure our Talent and Business leaders have attracted the best of industry talents and the most progressive enterprises interested in our world-class solutions. The 75k+ figure might not be as significant but consider it a family, it is a network that upholds Zycus values and solutions, it is a positive journey!”

So here’s a “Thank You” video expressing our gratitude to every member of our current LinkedIn family who has either followed Zycus for industry thought leadership or reached out for solutions or have followed for exploring opportunities toward building a lasting and most relevant procurement roadmap to invite in future. #onwardtonext75k
