Hiring QUALIFIED Information Technology candidates?
Hiring FOR the Right Job?
Hiring WHEN They Need Them?
Research indicates 81% of American senior managers are dissatisfied with the caliber of people hired to fill key permanent and part-time positions in their companies, despite the apparent cost, convenience and popularity of mass digital recruiting.
Bottom line: nobody wins. The applicant gets short-shrift, finite company resources are taxed to the max, and the potential diamond-in-the-rough is never discovered.
We understand your portfolio company is well-intentioned. They’re thinking, why spend money on exorbitant recruiter retainer fees? Look at how many people responded to our ad. The fact is, little/no value is placed on time to qualify or complete face-to-face interviews. Did you know only 12% of your management peers believe their organization can even diagnose talent?
When hiring IT personnel, the issues are even more pronounced. We all know technology drives almost every successful business these days. Not surprisingly, IT people are in high demand – unemployment is less than 3%. In addition, IT folks have less company loyalty than virtually any other employee segment – only 16% say they are happy and NOT looking for a job.
As a Private Equity manager concerned about ROI and exit value we ask you…is it smart to be “penny wise and pound foolish.” The fact is, what initially appears to be a low out-of-pocket cost is substantially higher on a ‘fully-loaded” basis.
Don’t get us wrong, there are times and places for digital recruiting. But, it is not a universal panacea. At Performance Improvement Partners we understand IT recruiting issues and have a pragmatic solution: the PIP Non-Retainer Recruiting Practice, staffed with professionals with over 100 years’ IT recruiting experience.
How does it work? PIP does all the work:
• We identify and pre-qualify candidates.
• We do face-to-face screenings prior to candidate introduction
• There is no up-front cost.
• We only get paid if you hire the right candidate
• We offer a unique candidate replacement guarantee.
So the bottom line is your bottom line. When it comes to hiring quality IT personnel, is it worth being penny wise and pound foolish?
