Let’s Define a Strategy
Recruiting is a very simple business that is extremely difficult to do. Let us help you navigate your strategy and your search. Our search consultants will listen to your business goals, needs, and objectives and make a recommendation based on what search approach would make the most sense for your organization predicated on business circumstance and time and speed of delivery necessary.
1. CONTINGENCY DIRECT HIRE SEARCH
Contingency/Direct Hire Search would make the most sense for your organization if you were in need of a mainstream position that you were looking to fill in a normal time period. There is no cost associated with a “Contingency” Search unless you choose to move forward and hire a candidate that we have presented to you. Cost is traditionally predicated on a percentage of the candidates annualized compensation.
2. ENGAGEMENT FEE/RETAINED SEARCH
A Retained Search model would make the most sense for your organization if this search were impeded by one or more of the following factors: scarcity (low inventory of candidates with this skillset or a senior leadership based position), obscurity (the location of this position in relation to more populated areas or other candidates with this skillset), confidentiality (due to the nature of this opening you do not want other members of your organization to know about this), or timing (you need position filled NOW). This service often makes more financial sense as often times we are willing to negotiate a discount predicated on mitigating our risk with upfront payment.
3. CONTRACT/ CONTRACT TO HIRE SEARCH
Hiring a contract employee would make the most sense for your organization if you wanted to “try before you buy” by mitigating the risk associated with hiring a direct hire employee. Maybe you want the financial flexibility of putting a candidate on our payroll should your business forecasting change or perhaps you have a short term project or assignment where you only need a specific skillset for a defined period of time.
4. RPO/Project Based Search
RPO (Recruitment Process Outsourcing) is unlike traditional contingency search in that we assume ownership over the design and management of the recruitment process, and the RESULTS! Choosing an RPO Partner for your business means choosing a talent strategy. We become an extension of your Talent Acquisition team and your brand. This might make the most sense for your organization if you had a new project or launch with 10+ openings and time and speed of delivery were critical. RPO also offers efficiency and cost savings as bulk placements are also done at a steep discount.
