Designed exclusively for Private Equity Firms and Portfolio Companies
New initiative expected to reduce time-to-hire, delivers substantial cost-savings
Fairfield, CT – Filling senior IT positions has traditionally meant working with an executive recruiter who receives an initial retainer plus fees based on a percentage of salary and benefits plus all-inclusive expense reimbursement. Hiring temp IT staff and technical personnel has meant receiving a variety of resumes from a volume recruiter who leaves the task of performing the time-consuming screening and evaluation to the client.
According to Performance Improvement Partners President & Managing Director, John H. Bisack III, these paradigms have changed, thanks to PIP’s new recruiting model, now offered exclusively to its roster of high-profile private equity firms and their portfolio companies.
“We want to thank our many clients for their loyalty over the past decade by making the process of finding talented, experienced IT management more user-friendly and economically-logical. We already understand our clients’ cultures, business strategies, and technical environments. That translates to identifying highly qualified candidates right out of the box. No expensive, drawn-out searches, no frustrating time-drains.”
According to Mr. Bisack, the benefits of PIP’s new division are not limited to executive searches. “When it comes to hiring mid-level and temp IT project staff, we will screen and evaluate every candidate offered before a resume ever hits the client’s desk.”
Veteran consultant and professional recruiter Howard Berger heads the new PIP division. According to Bisack, during the past 25 years, Berger has successfully conducted hundreds of IT searches for a broad variety of positions from CIO’s to mid-level functionaries. He also brings significant expertise assisting companies to identify supplemental talent that may be required to complement existing IT leadership in their efforts to meet the demands of dynamic business requirements.
“Hiring with PIP”, according to Mr. Berger, “comes with two other important benefits. First, we provide the utmost flexibility. If our clients require, we can even execute a ‘temp to perm’ approach for selective positions. PIP will act as the contractor, and when deemed appropriate, will work seamlessly to convert these candidates to full-time client employees. Second is the PIP guarantee. Selected searches come with a replacement guarantee.”
Added Mr. Bisack, “Although we have already completed numerous selective recruitment projects for existing clients, as Howie’s efforts are more widely known among our client base, I expect this division to become a robust add-on service to our core business. In fact, despite the recent economic downturn, the last 18 months have been the best-of times for PIP, as we have expanded our menu of services to continue to fulfill our client’s IT needs.” Mr. Bisack paused. “Yes, all of our service offerings continue to be based on our long-standing values.”
For almost a decade, PIP has maintained a singular vision: To provide the Private Equity Industry and its Portfolio Companies innovative, strategic solutions and cost-effective implementation programs at an unparalleled price-value. We have completed more than 600 engagements for nearly 50 PE firms, to become one of America’s leading business process and IT consulting firms. The Recruitment Services Division has been designed to support that corporate mission.
