Find and Hire Quality Employees in a Tight Market

Posted December 19, 2017

As national unemployment hovers around 4%, recruiters will find it more and more difficult to retain and replace quality employees. The number of available workers is diminished, and people who are already employed are less likely to abandon a job they know for one they don't. 

This scenario, playing out across the country, allows little room for error. And it makes it all the more important that you land the perfect candidate for the job the first time. 

While the stakes may be higher in a low unemployment economy, the standards to hire quality talent for the job are unchanged: it requires preparation, a thorough screening process, and strong post-interview evaluation tools.  

It requires XFACTOR.

After years of seeing the frustration, lost productivity, wasted resources, and disappointing applicant selections, we decided to do something about it. We created XFACTOR. 

Here's how it works: 

  • We'll meet with you and your team, review what you need, what you don't, where you've succeeded in the past and where you've fallen short.
  • We'll create of an online XFACTOR profile and job description for the positions you need filled--all based on your recommendations and desires.
  • We attract industry-specific talent by posting to social media and top-rated job boards.

Before you ever shake hands and exchange pleasantries for an interview, applicants will fill out a comprehensive questionnaire. This will assess their integrity, cognitive abilities, and personality. We'll filter applicants based on their scores and your needs. We then conduct preliminary interviews of the highest-rated candidates in a structured format so applicants are compared fairly and with less bias. Those who meet all the criteria you laid out are rewarded with a face-to-face interview with your team. 

Despite the restrictions of a tight workforce, you don't have to stress about finding the right person to join your team.
