Recruitment

Calling all leaders who...

... had to hire, like, yesterday.

… want the candidates' experience of the process to match the great Company you've built.

…feel they're missing out on great talent because their recruitment process takes way too long.

…would love to only conduct interviews with individuals whose practical skills line up with what's outlined on their resumes.

...want to make sure they aren't "settling" for a candidate just because they're too short on time to follow through on a solid recruitment strategy.


While you leaf through a resume stack of "independent team players," does your "to-do" list for your operations continue to grow? You can't help but wonder, 'Is there a more effective way of finding our next great hire without eating up so much of my time?'

 

Picture this …

⇒ You have an opening on your team.
⇒ You pick up the phone and call Essential HR.
⇒ In a flash, you've booked a recruitment discovery call with one of our rockstar team members.
⇒ A short time later, they created a comprehensive job description that took all the aspects of the role from inside your head a put it onto paper.
⇒ They've turned it into a fantastic job posting, and you've given your stamp of approval to the recruitment plan.

While you continue driving your business forward, you know behind the scenes the best candidates are being courted to interview with you. And the ones that don't hit the mark? …You'll never have to waste your valuable time with them.

Sound exactly like what you've been looking for?

Got Some Q's?

1. What if the right person doesn't appear from the search?
Suppose our team pre-screens 10 individuals, and the right person isn't there, or the top candidates have declined the role. In that case, we will provide you with options such as reopening another recruitment search to attract new and different set of candidates or reviewing additional candidates from the first batch of resumes that were submitted.

2. Do you do headhunting?
We are not headhunters. If there is a specific person you would like us to reach out to in our search, we are happy to do that. But we specifically work with active job seekers on the market and not passive candidates.

3. Where do you post the job?
We will curate a list of potential areas for you to post the position, along with the costs of doing so. This can range from free postings to sponsoring job postings with an unlimited budget. Up to $100 credit to a job board is included with the service fee. Typically, you should expect to spend $250-$400 on job posting boards to garner a decent amount of applications. 

4. Can we add on additional interviews if there is more than one role available?
Absolutely. We can customize the number of pre-screens you would like our team to conduct to ensure an appropriate number of top candidates are available for you to choose from!

5. We've never done a practical assessment. What is that?
A practical assessment is a real-life scenario that your candidate will work through that mimics what they will be doing in their role. It's an excellent way to make sure the candidate can do what they say they can do.
