FloBiz, a neobank for small and medium businesses has appointed Rabi Agrawal as its new head of human resources. In this role, Agrawal will be responsible for leading the talent acquisition, management and people operations for the Bank.
Agrawal moves to FloBiz after three years with Clear (formerly known as Cleartax) where he was heading the talent acquisition function.
Backed by close to 14 years of experience in HR, Agrawal is an alumnus of KIIT University from where he completed his MBA. He started his career with CareerNet Consulting as lead search consultant, for its SmartHire team. In this role, he was responsible for lateral and leadership hiring for clients. After a successful six-year long tenure at CareerNet, Agrawal moved to Zivame in 2014, as head of talent acquisition.
Recognising Agrawal’s “vast experience and expertise in the people function, which is critical to the success of any organisation,” Rahul Raj, founder and CEO, FloBiz, appreciates how Agrawal “has played an instrumental role in his previous stints, especially technical and leadership hiring”.
FloBiz’s team has grown 300 per cent in size over the last year and the business is expected to continue growing.
Excited at being able to join FloBiz at such an exciting time in its growth trajectory, Agrawal says “the organisation’s core ideology of keeping people and teams at the centre of every business decision” is rather heartening.
Having accumulated vast experience in managing the talent acquisition function at growing startups, he looks forward to “designing and delivering impactful people strategies and talent programmes to meet organisation-wide objectives and further fuel business growth,” in his new assignment at FloBiz.
