About Us Since our inception, WK Associates LLP has been totally focused on building a strategic, quality search practice. During our experience as an IT professional we were privileged to have travelled multiple countries, dealt with multi-facet, multi-cultural professional environments. We always came across one common ISSUE, one common CHALLENGE across the markets – lack of "Quality Human Capital".

This has been a common portent across the industries, be in Banking & Finance, IT, Healthcare of Manufacturing. Every industry is on a look-out for that special manager, that special leader to say the least.

As a matter of fact this is common omen across geographies, be in United States, Europe, Middle East & African, ASEAN or South East Asia. The very multi-cultural human capital movement has opened up geographies and acceptability of expatriate population; challenge remains of hunting such human capital.

WK Associates is our sincere effort to recognize and address this common issue which has been a roadblock of growth across markets and industries. WK Associates is a spin-off from renowned IT Recruitment Services firm Productiva IT Solutions Private Limited. Productiva is based out of Bangalore with offices across India, Dubai and United States. PRODUCTIVA’s key focus is to provide Permanent & Contract manpower to leading Indian and Multinational IT Services organizations across markets.

WK Associates focuses only on Leadership/Executive positions for banking & finance, healthcare, and IT industry. Our executive search services are led by consultants with deep domain knowledge and years of experience which brings extensive network to act for our clients. Our geographical reach, domain expertise and enviable experience help us successfully achieve client’s business objectives.
