Where Cutting-Edge Technology Meets
TALENT MANAGEMENT

Who We Are

Small, impactful, desirable, high quality, responsive and flexible

We can loosely be described as being like a Mini – the quality of BMW just in a smaller package. Just like a Mini we are almost infinitely flexible – allowing clients to get exactly what they want, every time. Rather than being shoe-horned into a “one size fits all” solution that may make process and efficiency sense but leaves clients feeling part of a machine rather than a true partnership. These qualities have been part of Upstream Talent since we were founded in 2007. They have created a flexibility and personality that makes us refreshingly different. Our distinctive style and pragmatic attitude can help you address even the most challenging and sensitive people issues.

Today we work with a wide range of private sector organizations Globally, and we remain privately owned and proudly independent.

What We Do

“Talent Management” has come a long way … moving away from the strict confines of the Shop Floor, navigating through the next wave of Information Technology, and finally stands staring at the new Opportunities ahead in a “Social” and “Mobile” landscape.

“Upstream Talent” is focused on operating at the arrow-head of this new direction by reinventing our service offerings in the light of the enormous opportunities, and building cutting-edge Mobile Products for the HR Community.

Arvind J
Chief HR Officer
CMS IT Services

“We engaged “Upstream” for setting up our global sourcing process for the Leadership Hiring program globally during my tenure at Wipro technologies. They were very professional in their approach and dependable who believe in consistently “Under-Commit and Over- deliver”. I did not hesitate to engage their services thereafter to develop a Competency & Grade Framework for our organization in my current tenure at CMS IT Services where we were undergoing a transformational journey. They were quick to integrate into the program & navigate through our organization and work extremely well as an extended team to deliver the project in the desired timelines with signed off outcomes .”
