We get it. Making high-level decisions on a daily basis and managing the demands of running your company leaves you with very little time to find, vet, and sign your ideal partners. While you’re busy powering the success of your organization, it leaves little bandwidth for you to hire the right person.
Many of our clients have tried on their own — carving out an hour here and there, getting frustrated, and giving up. The DIY hiring method simply won’t cut it for the caliber of talent they need. Like them, you need to find your ideal fit and get them on board without the stress on top of your own job.
When it comes to finding the best talent, it is favorable to hire someone who knows your needs and has the skills, dedication, and time to do the legwork for you. Working with GRN allows you to get the best hires without eating up valuable hours of your week. Here’s how the right agency fills the gap and makes the difference.
1. Connect with the Right Candidates.
70% of the workforce is made up of candidates who are passive job seekers. That means they aren’t applying for positions or trying to build their network with recruiters – they are putting their expertise and dedication into their current position. A specialized recruiter, however, spends their entire day building valuable connections with these happily employed people, convincing them that there is something better out there for them. Recruiters who really know what they’re doing successfully create demand where there was none.
2. Vet They’re a Good Fit
As recruiters build relationships with candidates, we make sure to learn everything about them – from their work style to what their colleagues from 10 years ago think about them. We take a holistic approach to know the candidates in their entirety.
What’s even better about working with external recruiters: we can recruit an ideal candidate out of firms that our clients wouldn’t think possible. Targeting these high-value candidates would be risky for a client to do on their own if the candidate is working for a vendor or one of their clients. Top recruiters can act as a buffer in what might otherwise be a more complicated situation.
3. Reference Check Them
We work diligently to ensure candidates are who they say they are not only on paper but also in their professional and even personal circles. At GRN, we go beyond asking references to fill out questionnaires. We work to make sure the candidate is able to come alive by getting them on the phone. This is how we make the quantitative and qualitative data give us the full story of our candidates.
4. Prepare Your Candidates for Dialogue
A quality agency will thoroughly prepare candidates for a seamless transition into the interview process. When the process is handled by an expert the candidate should be confident and ready to interview. Your recruiter should also have valuable insights into the candidate’s history that will help you reach your decision (and perfect hire) much faster.
