Hiring and Retention

Hiring has become a significant challenge, and companies are finding it increasingly difficult to find and hold onto their most valuable assets—employees. For most companies, hiring is a coin toss due to uninformed hiring practices. Despite the time and money invested in recruitment, traditional hiring has a 40% failure rate, and the costs of turnover can be up to 200% of an employee’s salary. Due to uninformed hiring or retention strategies, many companies are investing valuable time and money into recruiting and training employees, only to see them leave within just three months.

A candidate’s experience during the recruiting process is the first impression of how your company will treat them, why not start off with your best foot forward? And once they’re through the door, you can greatly increase the likelihood that they’ll stay. As your full-service outsourced talent acquisition, we are experts in pre-hire techniques that can mitigate the risk of a mis-hire and retention strategies that will keep your people with you for the long haul.

Our clients frequently complain about other outsourced recruiters they have used. The main complaints are that other outsourced recruiters: don’t understand what the hiring manager wants, don’t listen to or adjust when things are going right, have terrible communication, and prioritize a commission over finding the best fit. We pride ourselves on being different from traditional recruiters and have a well-vetted process that not only works but is highly collaborative.

Our team of experts will manage every step from the initial kick-off call to sending out the offer letter. At the core of it, we act more as a member of your team, making our processes and motivations comparable to an internal recruiter. In the end, our goal is to deliver the best candidates for the role, not just “fill a spot.” Our team has led the recruiting process, hiring over 300 new employees in the last three years. Here is what differentiates us:

Job Analysis & SOAR Methodology

  • We meet with your hiring manager(s) to understand your hiring goals, the needs of your company culture, the requirements for the role, challenges the new hire will face, and how to measure the success of the new hire using 30-60-90 day goals.
  • This process not only results in the alignment of stakeholders, but it gives us a thorough understanding of the hard and soft skills that are critical for this position. Without a crystal-clear idea of who will be successful from the start, the job description, interviews, and the rest of the hiring process are built on a bad foundation.
  • Compensation analysis is done to make sure that the salary, job description, and title are all aligned.

Job Descriptions & Structured Interviews

  • Not all job descriptions are created equal. Using Job Analysis, SOAR data, and scientific research, we design a compelling job description that will generate the highest number of responses and increase candidate interest.
  • We post the job description, source candidates, review applications, and interview the best candidates.
  • There is a wrong way to interview. Structured interviews are proven to be up to twice as effective at predicting job performance than unstructured ones.
  • For each candidate, our clients get a package including a resume, notes from our structured interview, and a Predictive Index Behavioral Assessment.

Predictive Index Behavioral Assessment and Job Fit

  • The Predictive Index (PI) is an extraordinary, ten-minute assessment that helps identify needs and behaviors and determines what drives an individual.
  • The assessment gives you a fast and scientifically valid way to get an in-depth look into our short list of candidates.
  • Each candidate gets a score on a scale of 1-10, for how well they fit the job based on their personality characteristics.
  • Recommended follow-up questions are given to hiring managers based on the PI assessment results and Job Fit score.

Follow-Up Coordination

  • We coordinate any and all follow-up interviews between you and the candidate.
  • Call references and provide reference call notes.
  • Write the offer letter and help with any offer negotiation. This increases the candidate’s satisfaction and protects the relationship between your company and the new hire.
