New Category Needed for Recruitment Professionals
Houston, we have a problem.
We couldn't find a category to associate our firm with!
- We have improved our service offering and pricing.
- We have focused it down to one main service to help our clients to recruit, engage and retain the best talent available.
However there is no existing category that seems to fit who we are.
In the past, clients, friends, peers, etc. have thought of us as a:
Contingency recruitment agency
Retained recruitment agency
Recruitment process outsourcing agency
Executive Search Agency
All of the categories above describe a service that replaces the internal recruitment function on 1 transaction at a time, or on an ongoing basis.
This is not who we are.
Our goal is to #maximize our client's current resources and therefore maximize their results. In other words, our goal is to enhance their existing recruiters and HR staff, not replace them.
So, you may ask "What would you like to be known as?" Instead, we want to be known as someone who makes the recruitment process better.
How about a new category? Recruitment Process Enhancement!
New category, New Leader
We would love to be the leader in the category and have other agencies and/or companies convert to our new category. It is time for a revolution in the way we help our clients improve their companies, and candidates improve their careers!
#RecruitProcessEnhancement would include companies who work to improve their client's recruitment process instead of replacing it. Examples:
Refining the creation of job descriptions
Improving how the jobs are advertised
Bundle services for clients to help them get the right tools faster
Helping clients to source more candidates on their own
Helping to streamline the interview process to make go faster
Show our companies how to use applicant tracking systems to hire more instead of filter and store more
Improve communication between employers and interested candidates
Improve the branding experience for the entire recruitment process
We would love to hear your thoughts on this. Feel free to throw in some new ideas as well if you are a frustrated employer or candidate!
