Notably, over the past few years, the employment and recruiting process has undergone a significant transformation. This is primarily due to the industry’s continuously changing requirements. The dynamic nature of the industry forces businesses and their executives to think creatively. This necessitates a team of talented individuals with a variety of skill sets to deal with various situations. Therefore, the hiring or recruitment process needs a shift in strategy.
One such company, Search Quest, promises systemic transformation through its creative and specialized approach to hiring. The company unequivocally guarantees that every position it accepts will be filled successfully. It keeps going through the hiring process until they find the ideal individual.
The idea for Search Quest, which was founded in 2008, came from Nishu Miglani (Founder & Managing Director), who wanted to offer a distinctive, “guaranteed placement” style recruitment option to a clientele in need of a better hiring method.

Overcoming Initial Challenges
When Nishu Miglani launched Search Quest, the market was slowing down because of the Lehman Brothers bankruptcy, which dealt major blows to investment banks. To reduce risk, Search Quest quickly diversified into other industries and made sure that the company became profitable in its first year of operations with a clear focus, commitment, and dedication combined with the highest quality delivery to clients. The company’s primary focus had been on servicing requirements for Investment Banks’ technology and KPO centers, so it was difficult to rebuild clients from scratch.
Growth trajectory, Revenue, and Clientele base
By demonstrating revenue growth of more than 100% annually and expanding its clientele, Search Quest has come a long way. Today, selected Fortune 100 and Fortune 500 MNC organizations work with Search Quest as an external business partner.
Two of Search Quest’s important members have taken the role of Directors internally to advance the firm, demonstrating how the company has evolved by developing home-grown leaders. By expanding its business inside each client, it has been able to keep all of its clients year after year.
Post-pandemic Era and Attention to Employees
After the pandemic, the hybrid work paradigm was implemented and the perspective on how Search Quest operated changed. Productivity has increased as a result, and with the WFH option available, the company can hire personnel anywhere in India without opening an office there. Clients are at ease with zoom conversations and MD meetings, and costs have been optimized.
