SutraHR recently launched a new product ‘StartupHR Toolkit’. The idea behind StartupHR Toolkit is to make HR Documentation an easy and quick process. Today more than 100+ organizations are using StartupHR Toolkit.

About – The company is known to expand and diversify whenever they can. It is a known fact that making HR Docs is a time-consuming process. Making these documents, policies, letters, etc. is not an easy task, especially in the ever-evolving Startup and SME Industry. Imagine wasting your precious time in writing and making documents, which in itself would not be an affordable thing to do. This has generated demand for a product like StartupHR Toolkit, which consists of ready-to-use HR document templates. Being in the HR Industry for more than a decade helped SutraHR understand the need for a product that makes the whole documentation process hassle-free. StartupHR Toolkit majorly targets SMEs and Businesses’ that cannot afford to have a designated HR Manager or HR Department.

StartupHR Toolkit is the smartest way to make HR Docs. They aim to be the go-to product when it comes to the HR Documentation process. The toolkit contains 120+ Job Descriptions, 50+ Employee Policies, 40+ HR Manuals, 30+ Letter Templates, and much more.

SutraHR is providing all of these things through StartupHR Toolkit for a fraction of amount that you would otherwise spend in making such documents through an HR Consultant. Even if you have a designated HR Department, StartupHR Toolkit makes their lives hassle-free and lets them focus on other important aspects of the business. The StartupHR Toolkit is designed to save you both time and money.

Mr. Waqar Azmi said, “Our experience of over a decade in the HR domain has made us aware of the many problems which an HR Professional faces in their day to day life. HR documentation is one of them. Official documents create credibility for the Employer by showing that employees are treated in a fair and consistent manner. We have compiled over 200+ HR DOCS from some of the most experienced HR professionals in the industry. All of the documents are legally compliant and are up to date. Our vision is to be the go-to destination for any HR DOCS and in the process help Employers build a strong relationship with their Employees.”

StartupHR Toolkit offers its customers ready-to-use HR Templates to make the documentation process hassle-free. The StartupHR Toolkit offers is available for a minimal amount of Rs. 2,999/-. It is a one–time investment and there are no additional hidden charges.

The magazine believes that the qualities which makes a startup office unbeatable and unique is the peculiar culture of casual dress code, flexible timing, well planned office space and an awesome team to work with. This list of startup offices also features other top startups like Snapdeal, Helpchat, Tinyowl, and Crowdfire.

This is what Inc42 had to say about SutraHR’s office: “They’ve got candies, graffitis, pretty lights, mugs, and a whole wall dedicated to employee pictures that too surrounded by fairytale lights! A well thought of office with inspiring posters, brainstorming area, chilling area, games – this one’s a small plum cake with extra cherries.”

We love how Sutra’s environment looks and feels! Working in this space is not only a feel good experience but also a great motivator. The office is light and airy, with creative graffiti and colorful details, making it a great place to work. It’s less about the awesome lounge area, great food and gaming areas and more about the relaxed environment which breaks the monotony.
