A Silicon Valley
This high-tech software company provides event management solutions to many of the world’s largest corporations, meeting management companies and event producers. Their SaaS platform enables attendee management, event branding, social and mobile participation. The company is based in San Francisco with offices across North America, Europe and the Pacific Rim.
A small, but rapidly growing company, they employ just a few HR professionals. Finding time for hiring is a challenge, so they partnered with ContractRecruiter to supplement their recruiting efforts.
The engagement lasted three years, with great success. As an extension of their HR team, we were pivotal in building a senior technical team and bringing in key IT resources. They still continue to take advantage of ContractRecruiter’s on-demand capabilities and will often scale up (or down) as their talent needs dictate.
The VP of Human Resources had this to say:
“As a seasoned HR executive, I have worked with a wide variety of recruiting resources and have not found any of them to be as skilled, productive, cost-effective and absolutely great to work with as ContractRecruiter. Simply put, their model works. My cost per hire percentages are down significantly and the quality of candidates I see across all functions in my organization is up significantly. We have made some outstanding hires over the past year with the help of ContractRecruiter. The team is committed, professional, incredibly thorough when vetting candidates, and fun to work with; the ability to flex hours and recruiting resources to meet our hiring demands is critical in a growing business like ours and they always meet our needs. The thing that impresses me most is that we never seem to miss a beat if the load is 10 requisitions or 2, I get the same level of dedication and commitment and the same quality candidates in the same kind of turnaround time. Customer service is great, skills are outstanding, candidate quality is high and I am a very satisfied customer. I look at ContractRecruiter as an extension of my staff and I appreciate the fact that they make me look so good when it comes to hiring quality and cost effectiveness! I cannot recommend them more highly. “
A Global Leader in Home and
Long-Term Care Medical Products
Due to rapid company growth, a global leader in the design, manufacture, and distribution of medical equipment decided to restructure and expand its outside sales teams into more specialized customer segments. For example, rehabilitation facilities and long-term care facilities were once treated as the same customer base but under the new structure, became two distinct customer bases requiring specially trained sales teams for each.
Given that the expansion had a finite duration, the company decided to engage with ContractRecruiter to supplement their existing in-house recruiting staff vs. hiring additional in-house corporate recruiters. Over the course of 8 months, our team worked hand in hand with the in-house talent acquisition team to successfully meet the company’s aggressive hiring goals for this sales initiative.
Our plug ‘n play model was the perfect solution for this company and upon completion of the engagement, the HR Manager had this to say:
“Thank you for all your help over the past several months. We could not have filled as many positions without your help. We appreciate your dedication, professionalism and detailed candidate profiles.”
The Leader in Software
This 21-year-old professional services organization is the world’s largest consulting firm specializing in software security. The company provides software security services including consulting, training, mobile application security, and cloud services to reduce risks associated with third-party or outsourced software.
For years, the company experienced hurdles with their IT recruitment efforts. Their market had become red-hot while the talent pool was scarce and competition was fierce. In 2011, ContractRecruiter was hired to hunt for qualified candidates. Despite the formidable challenge and competition for top talent, we have consistently met their rigorous requirements.
They take advantage of our multi-touch recruiting and sourcing services and at any given time, based on the growth plan, the client will rely on one, two or three of our recruiters and sources.
The Talent Acquisition Manager had this to say:
“Our experience with ContractRecruiter has been fantastic. The team contract recruitment model works very well with our business because of the ease in being able to fluctuate the level of services based on our business growth. We also think the “turn on, turn off” approach is wonderful, giving us the ability to maintain costs in an uncertain market. It’s adaptable, customized, and they work hard to make sure the assigned recruiter is the best fit for our industry. ContractRecruiter’s team is able to seamlessly fit in with our internal recruiting team, easy to work with, and they are hard-working and trustworthy. We highly recommend ContractRecruiter to any business that needs a cost effective and reliable local staffing resource.”
A Globally Recognized Developer
of Personal Care Products
This market leader, in business for over 100 years, enjoys an exceptionally low employee turnover rate, in part because of their strong people-focused culture. When their hiring needs occasionally become too much for their small internal HR generalist team to manage, they call upon ContractRecruiter.com for help.
They might only have a small handful of positions to fill at any given time, but ContractRecruiter is always ready, willing and able to quickly take the reins and fill any open positions that they have across any discipline. We have become their “go-to” solution, providing on-demand, as needed recruiting services which results in decreased time to fill and lower cost per hire each time they engage with us versus trying to “go it alone”.
Here is feedback from the VP of Human Resources:
“We engaged ContractRecruiter during a period when we were pivoting from a more traditional means of recruiting to one anchored around our LinkedIn presence. They mobilized a team very quickly to source and screen candidates for us across a wide variety of job families. Over the course of a few months they provided the kind of “extended staff” resources that allowed us to reduce our sourcing-to-placement cycle times while improving candidate quality. Of equal importance, the cost per hire was very reasonable. We will continue to use them at times when the volume of staffing activity exceeds the capacity of our internal resources."
