Our Founder

Ramachandran Kannan

An HR expert with 31 years of experience, Kannan is an entrepreneur by heart and instinct (Founder-Promoter of AssessPeople). An alumnus of XLRI (Batch of 1982), Kannan has had his grounding with organisations like Blow Past, Crompton Greaves, Hindustan Lever and the Murugappa Group.

Kannan also runs a not-for-profit trust called Anuvikaz (www.anuvikaz.org). The objective is to educate and empower underprivileged sections of society by creating reading rooms, offering employment training/vocational guidance and workshops.

Kannans latest venture is www.scooldudes.com (relaunched in 2013). This online platform hopes to be an after-school hangout for kids who can learn and develop their extra-curricular interests. Having authored a book and several articles on HR and career guidance, Kannan plans to work with kids on various aspects of after-school life.

His love for the outdoors (treks, scuba diving, cycling and camping) is infectious and participants can expect an adventure-packed event calendar on a monthly basis!
