What is Talent Acquisition?
Talent acquisition is more than just gathering resumes for your review and consideration.
Leaders of successful organizations understand that people matter more than numbers and, therefore, vacant positions represent significant opportunities.
Getting the “right people off the bus and the right people on the bus” (as Jim Collins calls the process in his book Good To Great) requires courage and speed.
Recruiting for Speed
When a position becomes vacant or business growth requires the need to fill new positions; there is an urgency involved in finding candidates to consider. The longer a position remains vacant, the more the company’s success is impacted and the harder others within the organization have to work to cover the additional work load.
However, there is Smart – Fast and there is Costly – Fast.
Recruiting agencies who rush to provide a stack of resumes that haven’t been vetted to not only match skills and experience but also culture and value will end up costing you in time, effort, training and money.
KGT understands the value of speed while also appreciating the ultimate need for the right fit. We work fast and smart to provide you with talent options that will be the best fit for your opportunities.
Recruiting for Quantity
Even with the best relationships and contacts, recruiting can still be a numbers game. We understand that you want a choice, so we provide a variety of qualified candidates that meet the skills and experience you require for your open positions.
Our teams of Candidate Sourcing Professionals are located around the U.S., China, the UK, and Europe and have a seemingly endless library of executives to contact in a variety of industries. We source candidates in:
- Executive & General Management
- Human Resources
- Supply Chain Management
Recruiting for Quality
Providing top quality professional candidates for your review is our number one priority. We understand the need for speed and choice; however, ultimately you need the best person for the job. Our proactive approach to talent acquisition enables us to actively seek out the best quality candidates rather than the “post and wait” strategy of other recruiting firms.
Through technology, social networking, associations and crowd sourcing we are able to select and qualify the best candidates for your company.
Recruiting for Cost
If you were to recruit for the candidates on your own the costs would escalate even before you filled the position, taking time, energy and effort away from others within your departments and companies to search for the best possible candidates. Costs add up quickly:
- Screening resumes
- Telephone and initial interviews
- Negotiating compensation packages*
*Research has proven that when a company negotiates with the candidates directly they frequently end up hiring at a salary that is 12-15% more than a recruiting firm.
In addition to the cost of seeking out candidates, there are other expenses associated with filling a position. As your business partners in Human Resources we understand the importance of your bottom line:
- The cost of each day without the position filled
- The cost of training and acclimating the new hire
- The cost if the person turns out to be the wrong fit
- The cost of starting over
At KGT we keep your bottom line in the forefront of our relationship as we source candidates and ultimately assist with placing the best candidate in your company.
We source, screen and place candidates as FAST as our clients must have them, and will go to great ends to accomplish this, working virtually 24/7.
