Recruitment Research & Recruiting On-Demand Explained

From The Desk of Sheila Greco, Chief Executive Officer SGA Talent

Did you know……..

 

Recruitment research is not just surfing the internet for profiles, nor is it looking into databases, or searching LinkedIn for matching titles and key words.

Recruitment research is, a methodical approach to uncovering specific talent to include passive candidates from targeted companies with the addition of actionable data as well as other intelligence beyond just a name or profile.

Recruiting On-Demand is not executive search or recruitment process outsourcing.

Recruiting On-Demand is a flexible recruiting alternative which produces strong qualified candidate pipelines and full life cycle recruiting support with a cost structure that can be hourly, weekly, or monthly.

Recruitment Research further explained……

Recruitment Research has many names, some of which include; Talent Mapping, Organization Chart Development, Sourcing, Name Generation, Candidate Identification and Talent Intelligence which shows Diversity or is used for Succession Planning.

Recruitment research is invaluable information offering many benefits, beyond just a name and title. For instance, it shows reporting structure of a potential recruit in turn providing intelligence such as peers, direct reports and who the individual reports to. This perspicacious information is available to help prepare the recruiter for the call prior to the conversation and in some cases eliminate the need to make a call depending upon a profile or sensitivity of the search.

Often times recruitment research is used for recruiting but it is also found to be valuable to those in Talent Management, Human Resources, Diversity & Inclusion and to Senior Management leaders looking for intelligence. When the data is used outside of recruiting, projects are often very customized with very targeted objectives requiring accurate intelligence to meet the goals set forth by the team.

Depending upon the client, the deliverable for recruitment research can be in excel and/or organization chart format with live links to profiles or actual biographies when requested. Included in recruitment research is typically company name, professional’s name, exact title, address, email information, telephone numbers and profiles. It can also include peer-to-peer comparisons too.

Below are a few examples of recruitment research

Examples 1 & 2

Organization Chart showing reporting structure and diversity.

 

 

Recruitment Research Example 3

Profile often used when recruiting, candidate profiling, succession planning and talent intelligence.

 

Recruitment Research Example 4

Excel Spreadsheet Deliverable

Recruitment Research Examples 5 & 6

Below are examples of a succession planning project showing peer-to-peer comparisons based upon data gathered to includorganization chart mapping and profiling.

 

 

 

 

Recruiting On-Demand further explained…..

Recruiting On-Demand is a scalable recruiting solution that delivers qualified candidates for a specific time period without the expense of retaining traditional executive search or paying a contingency fee. The cost can be hourly, weekly, monthly and without a success fee. The client simply chooses the terms and timeframe for the project as well as the number of roles each recruiter will be responsible for. The outsourced partner will then become an extension of the client’s internal team.

With all Recruiting On-Demand assignments, the recruiting process is similar to an executive search methodology, whereby delivering  a strong pipeline of qualified candidates, ready to be hired. In addition to qualified candidates, the client will also receive all of the recruitment research gathered during the recruiting process to include data analytics.

Below is an example of a four month recruiting project that yielded 9 hires, 5 of whom were diverse with the average cost per hire less than 10% of each professional’s starting salary, not the total compensation package.

I sure hope you found this information to be informative. It will be followed up soon with a Podcast and webinar so stay tuned.

If you want to learn more about these services,  I would love to connect.

Cheers!

SGA Talent launches two new recruitment research & recruiting solution options

From Scott Scanlon

June 12, 2020 – Amsterdam, NY-headquartered executive search firm SGA Talent has introduced two new recruitment research and recruiting solutions designed to bring increased agility, cost-efficiency and scalability for corporations needing talent quickly. The newly added ‘recruiting on-demand express’ and ‘research on-demand express’ solutions provide hiring managers, human resources professionals and talent acquisition leaders additional options beyond traditional recruiting services.

“These new recruitment research and recruiting options leverages SGA Talent’s industry expertise to deliver quick, cost effective services which are both supported by our experienced internal SGA Talent team,” the firm said.

“Businesses today are looking for the right recruiting options that are flexible, results driven and cost effective, not just a one-size-fits-all service” said Sheila Greco, founder and CEO of SGA Talent. “With new uncertainty in hiring demands leaders need solutions that fit their budgets and timing constraints.”

SGA Talent’s recruiting on-demand express delivers a high-quality targeted talent candidate pipeline in three days. This service utilizes SGA Talent’s propriety recruitment methodology and offers the answer to time-constraint recruiting activities. “This service is often used when an internal recruiting team is over-extended and needs results quickly,” the firm said. “It is designed for mid-level to junior-level candidates; it is not designed for executive search level candidates.”

SGA Talent research on-demand express delivers a high-quality targeted talent pool of names ready to be called, e-mailed and in-mailed. “This service utilizes SGA Talent’s propriety recruitment research methodology and offers the answer to time constraint recruiting activities,” the firm said. “This service is often used when an internal sourcing team is over-extended and needs results quickly.”

Veteran Search Firm

Established in 1989, SGA Talent combines the continuity and business acumen of a 28-year-old recruitment research and strategic recruiting solutions company with a practical forward-looking, results-driven approach.

Ms. Greco is a proven leader with over 30 years of recruiting experience. In addition to managing the firm, she leads SGA Talent’s engagements for senior level positions for many of the company’s long-standing clients, with a particular expertise in professional services, healthcare, consumer packaged goods and manufacturing. As an industry expert, Ms. Greco has developed trusted relationships with talent acquisition leaders and human resources at Fortune 1000, start-ups, as well as emerging growth companies.

Last year, SGA Talent appointed Joseph Morse  president. After over 24 years with the firm, Mr. Morse has both the experience and vision needed to transform SGA Talent into a high-performing, industry-leading, full-service recruiting company, said Ms. Greco. “As a leader and active participant in the day-to day operations of the company,” she said. “I expect Joe to make an easy transition into this new role.” Anthony Carbone was also named partner, and, along with Mr. Morse, he is tasked with managing and growing the firm by building its suite of recruiting and talent intelligence solutions.

During these unprecedented times, we want to say we were here for you yesterday, we are here for you today and we will be here for you tomorrow. Stay safe my friends.

Also, as we prepare to launch our March Study and with March being Women History Month, we thought it would be a great time to recognize the highly-accomplished women who have earned their seat on the board of the Fortune 50. These powerful women along with the other successful women leaders continue to pave the way for the next generation.

The women noted below are part of a yearlong study SGA Talent conducted in 2019 as a response to the signing of a California bill in 2018, Women on Boards (Senate Bill 826) . The study went beyond the board level to the C-Suite and 2 levels below from the top 3,000 publicly-traded companies with the goal to create a talent pool of the next generation women leaders.

For now congrats to all….You made it and we thank you!

Recruiting It’s All About Your Networks & Creating Strong Engaging Talent Communities

From the desk of Sheila Greco, Chief Executive Officer SGA Talent

As a talent advisor, networking needs to be part of your long-term success strategy.  It needs to be an activity that is part of your total recruiting effort. Just like creating a talent pool and reaching out to potential recruits to build strong candidate pipelines, asking professionals to be part of your networks or talent communities should be part of what you do too. I traditionally ask people to join my network in my initial outreach because I believe it is a nice way to end a message or note. You too can try that.  But if they don’t connect right away, and you really want them to be part of your talent communities/networks, circle back later, after the hire is made, letting them know your interest in them being part of your network. Also, as you build your talent communities be sure to choose your connections carefully, requesting only those who make sense as well as those who you believe will see the value of the connection. Please take note that building strong networks takes time—- some take weeks, months or years. But, whatever the timeframe, the time to start is now. Long term, if you want to be successful in our industry, it’s all about who you know and who knows you.

The Value Of Your Networks

Business networking and more specifically recruiting networking involves making connections not only with likely recruits or potential clients, but with those who you feel will be good for referrals for both people and business. Basically, it is all about creating trusting relationships and friendships with other businesspeople that can be mutually beneficial. It is also a great way to continue your education because you can learn from others as well as exchange ideas. Often these open discussions result in building strong bonds and trust.

Staying Connected & Being Accessible

Staying connected means to personally interact with your connections with outreach and responding to their inquiries- remember it is a two-way street. Engaging with your connections can be as easy as asking them to network with you, answering their requests, sharing relevant meaningful information or simply just catching up. It truly depends upon the existing relationship as well as how much engaging you want to do to stay connected, but it must be done. Engagements can be done on an ad hoc basis, scheduling a face to face meeting or call. Reaching out on average 3-5 times per year is typically more than enough allowing one of the touchpoints to be during the holiday season. Staying connected and accessible should not be a full-time job but part of it!

Building Talent Communities To Help Build Your Own Brand

It is good to be mindful that your talent communities were not created just to fill roles but a chance to highlight you as an expert, a thought leader as well as a resource for career advice, career movements and potentially business. Networking amongst your community has been proven to be linked to many measures of professional success. In building your brand, feel free to show the world you are an expert by sharing what you have learned during your daily activities. Sharing can be simple— It can be done in an email, with a call, a text and of course through social media. Compared to years ago, where there were limited networking mediums, social media today actually amplifies the ability to network endlessly and authentically. As I do use social media, I still prefer to send email messages, even pick up the telephone or shoot a text to share some highly relevant content. Be sure to share intelligence with your connections, it will be well worth your time.

Build, Cultivate, Engage  

You And Your Networks Are Your Best Recruiting Tools

Creating and cultivating engaged talent communities are a must for those yearning for a long-term successful career in recruiting. Tapping into your networks as you begin to fill your open roles is a great place to start your search and a great way to stay connected as well as engage with your connections. Employing this strategic approach to recruiting can shorten the time to present qualified candidates as well as cultivate, maintain and grow your talent communities. Once someone agrees to join a network most understand and have agreed in some form to be open to networking, listening as well as potentially moving for the “right” position so please don’t hesitate to reach out to them as often as it makes sense. As you continue to build, cultivate and engage I encourage all of you to use your networks as you recruit top performers.

I See The Value Of Building Networks and Being Part Of Them

Having been in the recruiting business for many years I have been fortunate enough to have built many networks and talent communities as well as being asked to be part of just as many, in both scenarios, I discovered as well as experienced the many benefits of doing so. With that said, I thank my early mentors for setting the mission to make networking part of my daily routine to build my personal brand and to showcase our company. Today it continues as I try to be there for my inner circle networking members for support, to listen, react and to be a valuable resource. I encourage all of you to make networking efforts part of your daily activities.
