Staffing Challenges Require A Total Approach... Discover Talent and Reduce Cost

Business News,Business,Ezine
Organizations of any size or purpose succeed when they have the right mix of talented individuals to make them distinctive. Talented individuals, however, are nurtured and protected by their organizations and have little reason to pursue other opportunities. Even in a stressed economy, (Only 23% of our population has a four year degree and less than 4% are out of work) companies do not release their best employees. It’s the less skilled, less productive employees that become available. Hence, the search for key placements can be a long, expensive, and frustrating process. To fairly and economically overcome the access barrier to new talent and break through the limited choices of standard dotcoms and agencies, there is an alternative strategy. Highly qualified people are not twittering for new jobs, they are not on the job boards, and they do not respond to passive networking and media ads. A survey by LinkedIn and Adler Group found that fully two-thirds of the employed population was content and not looking. People in this category will not know of your opportunity without personal contact, the kind of connecting (not networking) that an approach called ‘staffing research’ provides. The concept of staffing research emerged about fifty years ago to find prime candidates for choice positions, but there was a key difference in its objectives. These prime candidates were not offered to prospective employers; rather, they were turned over to the search firms these employers hired. Search firms would then present the staffing research candidates to their clients and collect a fee for the hire. Back in the 1980’s, at an American Management Association conference in Washington D.C., a Fortune 100 company declared, “We use who the headhunter uses – staffing research”.

Gaining access to the staffing research process begins with engaging a staffing research firm. A firm specializing in staffing research directly and aggressively defines, targets, and connects with the qualified applicant pool, with the singular goal of identifying the best qualified applicants for an opening. It is usually the case that, once found, a prime candidate will respond with interest and a willingness to listen to career improvement opportunities. “Would your company benefit from hiring these highly regarded potential candidates?” Such a one-on-one approach succeeds exponentially over the old standbys of career fairs and recruitment advertising, and against the tide of new technologies and new perceived recruitment options – such as,,,, website postings, social networking, and passive candidate networking.

The process toward gaining access to approximately 90% of the potential candidates from a target industry or geographical area is both expedient and low cost:

• For the research model to be productive, a position will need 75 to 100 hours of staffing research.

• Each assignment begins with a thorough understanding of the prospective employer and its present needs, including position descriptions and compensation parameters.

• The organizations that will have the qualified professional for the position are identified.

• The first 35 to 45 hours of the position assignment will be spent generating names for the recruitment pool.

• The next phase, which could encompass 40-55 hours, is direct contact with the targeted professionals, presenting the opportunity via telephone, generating an interest level and obtaining confidential information on their background, compensation, reasons for the candidate’s interest, contact information, and other pertinent information.

• The background information and resume of a targeted candidate is furnished to the prospective employer for its evaluation.

Cost Benefits A staffing research firm charges an hourly rate for its services, not a fee based on the candidate’s salary. That translates into major savings very quickly. Taking the scenario described above, in which the search for a candidate is completed in about 100 hours, and assuming an hourly rate of $100, the cost differences are striking.

When the external staffing firm charges a 20% fee for an $80,000 employee salary their fee would be $16,000. For the same person staffing research would usually expend 100 hours of research time at $100 per hour or $10,000. The savings would be $6,000 by using the staffing research firm or 37.5% savings. When the employee salary is $120,000 the savings is $14,000 or 58% and if the employee salary is $175,000 the savings is $25,000 or 71%. When the external staffing firm charges more than 20% the saving is even greater. As you can see this is really striking.

Organizations can hire as many of the candidates staffing research generates with absolutely no individual hiring fees. All communication expenses are included in the hourly rate.

Recruitment candidate generation and research template can be applied with positive expedient results for any salaried position in any vertical market in the commercial, industrial, institutional and government marketplace except for staff I/T positions. Staffing Research Model has been in use for many years.

In Staffing Research: • Costs are based directly on the time needed for research.

• The middle step is eliminated.

• There is no employer time and expense devoted to screening resumes.

• Confidentiality is secure on request.

• The client has control over the scope of staffing assignment and the consequent expenditure.

• The lower cost-per-hire goes to the bottom line.

Other Benefits for the Prospective Employer’s Recruiting Staff

• Every assignment provides fresh, accurate, and up-to-date information on targeted companies and viable candidates.

• Candidates furnished are the best candidates, not an open ended “data dump” nor a prescribed maximum or minimum.

With the benefits of an expanded population of candidates, low costs, and truly qualified and desirable recruits, now is the time to rethink staffing strategy. Take a positive step now.
