To add value to our clients' operation, by aligning the Human Resources function with the overall strategy of the organization. Recruit, Retain, Achieve is the core of our philosophy: recruiting the best talent for your team, retaining your most productive employees, and ultimately, achieving your goals as an organization.
We believe the best organizations are the ones who manage to strike an ideal balance between proper deployment of the existing workforce and acquisition of new talent; we see no reason why nonprofit organizations should be an exception. We will start with an assessment of your current needs, your organization's "brand" in the workforce market, and develop the most cost-effective strategies for interviewing, recruiting and onboarding your future employees.
Whether we will be searching for your next senior level executives or adding to your operational staff, we believe that each new hire needs to bring your organization closer to its mission and purpose, in a very quantifiable way. One of the most effective ways of interviewing and assessing a candidate, deemed as having one of the highest accuracy rates, is Behavioral Based Interviewing, which can reduce your recruitment costs and overall turnover rate, by up to 40%. We also believe in a consistent onboarding process for your new employees, followed by a 30 and 90-day review of both the employee's performance and overall level of satisfaction.
These are just a few examples of what our methodology stands for, but we will be happy to tailor our approach to your team's unique attributes and demands.
We can assist you with a full range of personnel issues, including analyzing the specific needs of a nonprofit entity, as well as innovative ways of incorporating and developing new talent within the organization.
Starting with the initial phase of onboarding, we believe the initial steps of transitioning an individual from a candidate to an employee, are crucial to the person's performance, morale, as well as potential fit within the team. That is why we can assist your organization with the onboarding process, the probationary period review, as well as ongoing training courses.
We believe strong leaders make strong organizations. Strong organizations make even stronger communities. Our experience in conducting searches for senior level executive positions includes Fortune 100 and 500 clients, as well as large public entities allows us to understand the unique challenges of recruiting for your organization's next leader. We understand the direct link between choosing not only the right resume, but also the right person for the job, and business results.
