Q?

Why should I use just you?

A.

Although it seems like a good idea to have many recruiting firms working on your order on the premise that they will be able to unearth more candidates.  It really isn't.  All that is really happening is that the firms are avoiding responsibility and accountability. Having multiple mediocre recruiters working on your hiring need can actually cause you brand damage and turn-off the best candidates.

If you really want to hire someone and the role is important to you. Committing to Pivot Staffing to source and recruit the people you want is guaranteed to get you results.

Q?

How can you help me find the best candidate for my company?

A.

There are 2 things that really enable the recruiting process. They are:

  1. Information.  Meeting the hiring manager onsite and allowing us to to gather the information our process requires is the best first step.  A standard job description is helpful to send to candidates but the requirements gathering that we are able to produce through our experience is where we really understand your hiring need.
  2. Feedback. Timely feedback on candidates is crucial to not missing out on the best people.  There are so many variables to hiring because people are so varied and their are so many attributes to a single individual.

A.

We will review your lead generation to new client revenue operations.  We look at how you acquire new prospects and convert them to clients. We review how your current sales occur, who is responsible, and if that system is scale-able.  If it is scale-able, then hiring the right people will allow you to bring in new clients , sales and revenue. If it isn't, then we design a system to allow your sales team to effectively scale up and grow your company.
