- StaySigned is an internet based platform aimed at making the recruitment process for business organizations more efficient, engaging and data-driven. The Platform is meant to assist human resources (HR) / recruitment teams of business organizations in avoiding redundancies and candidate dropouts during the recruitment process, and to enable them to engage with candidates prior to them joining the organization.
- The StaySigned platform is meant to act as a repository of employment offers (including provisional/conditional) signed by candidates and to provide a medium by which organizations can meaningfully engage with candidates after making the offer in order to improve candidate retention and create a brand identity for the employer.
- Acceptance of these terms is a prerequisite for usage of Services on the Platform. By virtue of using or registering on the Platform or Website, it is deemed that you accept all and any of the terms and conditions specified in this Agreement. The Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between you and the Owner and governs your use of the Platform's Services and the goods availed by You through the Platform, superseding any prior agreements between you and the Owner.
Scope of Service
- The Platform acts as a repository of certain data points based on input/information furnished to it by employers and candidates. The Platform allows employers to enter, store and share certain data in respect of candidates, including the candidate’s name, Permanent Account Number (PAN), date of joining and other job offer related data as per the offer letter issued by that employer to a particular candidate. These details are securely stored by the Platform and can be accessed only by employers and registered users of the platform after obtaining consent of the candidate.
- The candidate’s name, mobile number and e-mail id may be provided by the (prospective) employer prior to scheduling an interview with the candidate. The candidate must complete the Platform’s KYC process in order to be able to schedule interviews or accept provisional job offers with employers. The date of joining the employer may only be provided by the employer to StaySigned after an the final offer letter (provisional or final) to the candidate is issued / published through the Platform.. The Platform shall only display the primary details of the candidate (name and phone number). Past signed/accepted offers and dates of joining may only be displayed after obtaining consent of the candidate upon an enquiry being made by a (prospective) employer. The Platform shall thus act as a repository of the number of offers (including provisional/unconditional) accepted by candidate along with the date of joining as per the information provided by employers to the Platform.
- The Platform would not indicate whether such candidate has actually joined any particular employer nor shall it be responsible for maintaining a record of the candidate’s employment history. The Platform may also mask the name of the employer if so requested by an employer and would only display the candidate’s date of joining, offer accepted date and location as per the employer’s offer letter.
- The Platform allows employers to search for candidates by their names, email or official identifiers (PAN / Aadhaar number) and to view the number of offers (including provisional/conditional) accepted/agreed (by candidate) by candidate and the date of joining as per such offer made by other employers, subject to the candidate consenting to such request being made by any employer.
- The Platform also allows employers to engage with candidates through promotions, advertisements, gift vouchers, etc. that may be delivered to the candidate through the Platform. Such candidates need not register with the Platform to avail of such promotion or gift voucher offered by the employer but would need to authenticate his / her identity.
- The Platform envisages five stages of the recruitment process :
The Platform, through third party service providers, allows candidates and employers to conveniently schedule interviews through the Platform. The Platform relies on and displays information pertaining to scheduling as provided or furnished by the employer and candidate, as the case may be, without any modification or control over the same. Prior to such scheduling, the candidate must complete the KYC process on the Platform.
Provisional Offer Letter
The Platform permits employers to issue or publish provisional offer letters with key data points (such as CTC/ salary and proposed date of joining). The candidate may accept or reject the same and the employer and candidate may thereafter independently engage to negotiate terms. The employer may withdraw the provisional offer letter at any point prior to issuing the final offer letter to a candidate.
Log Final Offer Letter
An employer may log a final signed/agreed (by candidate) offer letter through the Platform. An employer may choose to send the signed/agreed final offer letter through the platform or independently. The modalities of execution of the final offer letter are at the discretion of the employer and the Platform only records the factum of the final offer letter being published / issued by the employer.
Engagement and pre-onboarding
An employer may use the Platform to engage with a candidate by offering coupons, vouchers, rewards, mentoring sessions, etc. Such services are facilitated by the Platform at the request of the employer.
The Platform merely provides data points to enable employers to make efficient and informed choices in the recruitment process. The Platform is not responsible for final onboarding of candidates and does not require employers or candidates to confirm whether the candidate has been successfully onboarded after logging of the final offer letter. The Platform merely aims to bring visibility to the problem of ghosting by candidates and to make candidate onboarding more predictable and sophisticated.
- Employers are wholly responsible for the data furnished by them to the Platform, including the veracity and accuracy of such data and for obtaining appropriate consent from the candidate for sharing their data with the Platform. Employers undertake to obtain appropriate consent from candidates at the time of or prior to the issuance of the offer letter to a candidate and employers acknowledge that the liability to obtain consent from candidates is wholly and solely upon such employer. The Platform is an intermediary that permits employers to enter data and the Platform merely stores and displays such data without any modification thereto. Employers are wholly responsible for the terms of their employment offered by them and compliance with such terms.
- The services provided by the Platform are subject to the advance payment of subscription fees and such other charges as may be decided by the Platform from time to time.
