Ushta Te Consultancy: empowering companies through comprehensive staffing solution
One of the direct influences of the progressing business ecosystem on companies has been on their talent demands. Rapid development brought in by technology and emerging market condition has indicated that companies have to often chart their talent demands beforehand and work proactively to stay ahead of the curve.

Ushta Te Consultancy is the stalwart of recruitment services in India. It was established on 1st April 2012 with an aim to offer tailored-made services. The company is working in the Content and HR domains for companies across media, technology, lifestyle, retail, and advertising & marketing domains.

The Man behind the Brand
Ushta Te Consultancy is achieving its business goals under the excellent guidance of Malcolm Mistry. He is the Founder and Director of the firm and holds more than two decades of experience in the print industry. Malcolm has worked across Indian Express, India Today Group as a Publishing Director, and he was the last CEO of the newspaper DNA.
While working in India Today Group he realized that the industry is lacking the right kind of talent of a particular caliber that creates a kind of opportunity for recruitment companies to provide the right talent solutions. Keeping that in mind, when he left the media industry, he thought of set up something in the human resource space, and so, he started his own entrepreneurial venture named Ushta Te HR Consultancy.
