HireSure.ai, an HR-tech platform that enables companies to leverage data in making efficient compensation decisions, has raised $2.5 million in seed funding led by YCombinator and Binny Bansal’s Three State Capital. San Francisco-based Tribe Capital and Pioneer fund also participated in the round.

The start-up plans to use the funds to strengthen the community, build new products and primarily scale up the engineering and product teams for product development.

Founded in 2019 by three graduates from IIT Kanpur -Anurag Dixit, Anshul Mishra and Ramesh Konatham, the start-up uses real-time compensation benchmarking data to help companies make more efficient compensation decisions and eliminate pay disparities.

The company has also announced the launch of CompUp, a full-stack compensation management platform, that brings together all the compensation data and insights into one place. This will be used by companies to compare, strategise and communicate 'total rewards' to their employees and candidates. 

CompUp is reportedly launching ‘Compensation Insider’, a community where CHROs (chief human resources officers) and reward professionals across sectors and companies would come together to share best practices around rewards and contribute towards building a global compensation platform that will make fair pay a reality. 

The platform will transform the way pay processes are managed in companies, to drive a higher fairness quotient among employees.

“We believe that this problem of pay disparities can be solved only when companies come together to democratize access to real-time compensation benchmarks. This is the reason why 'Total Rewards' leaders of funded startups are coming together to form an invite-only community, with us” said Anurag Dixit, co-founder of HireSure.ai. 

This community will be leveraged as a platform to generate a wealth of insights into best practices around 'total rewards' and contribute towards building a world-class solution to eliminate pay disparities.

HireSure aims to achieve pay parity by helping companies leverage data to make scientific and fair people decisions starting with compensation.

 “As of now, compensation data is sitting in silos in multiple systems. Our product CompUp aggregates compensation data from multiple systems and comes up with insights to make better compensation decisions,” observed Dixit. 

“More than half of the world’s GDP is salaries. Yet there is no full-stack solution to provide real-time compensation benchmarks, insights and also enable companies to make data-driven compensation decisions for their employees. This results in removing biases in decision-making and reducing pay disparities. We have a first-mover advantage in solving this real-world challenge,” Dixit added. 

The company has currently partnered with over 200 funded start-ups in India including Meesho, Slice, Dream11, Apna, Porter, Dunzo, Khatabook and Rapido. The aim is to partner with about 800 start-ups by the end of 2023 and will then expand our offering to Southeast Asia and Middle East. 

The company has also appointed Satheesh K V, co-founder of Spottabl and former sr. director HR at Flipkart on its advisory board member.
