Human resources (HR) tech startup Keka has raised $57 million in a series A funding round led by WestBridge Capital, the startup said in a statement on November 9.

Keka plans to utilise the funding towards research and development (R&D) even as it plans to expand its engineering, product, and customer success team.

Founded by Vijay Yalamanchilli in 2015, Keka is an HR tech platform in India for small and medium enterprises (SMEs) with 20-5,000 employees. Keka streamlines and automates payroll, recruiting, leave and attendance, and performance management.

“I believe we raised funding at the right time. We have been the fastest-growing HR tech leader in our space. Although we got several offers for funding in the past, we never felt the timing was right. Finding the right investment partner was also significant for us,” said Yalamanchilli in the statement.
Business today means serving both customers and employees. While there have been plenty of tools to cover the customer experience, employee experience has taken a back seat. Businesses can no longer afford to do that, he added.
