Everyone who has ever made a bad hiring decision or worked with a negative or destructive person understands the damaging impact of a bad hire on the business. It is a very costly exercise and not just in terms of money. The more intangible impacts can be even more significant and enduring – damage to staff morale, company culture and trust; loss of customers and customer satisfaction; increase in staff turnover; and the list goes on. The total impact of a bad hire can be so enormous, and long-lasting, it can be difficult to calculate.

Finding the right talent is a talent - especially in a candidate short market. Yet many business leaders often underestimate the time it takes, the complexity involved in recruiting the right person and the potential ramifications of getting it wrong. Knowing who to turn to for help can also be a daunting task.

When selecting the right recruitment partner, you need to ask yourself the following questions: “Who are they?”; Will they understand my business?”; “Do they have experience in my sector?”; “Are they local?”; “Can I meet with their recruitment specialist in person?”; “What is their process?”; “Will I get the result I need?” “Are there additional benefits I didn’t anticipate by working with this recruitment specialist?”

Best Fit Methodology

We use our unique ‘True Fit’ methodology to find and match talent that is the best fit for your business. Our recruitment specialists take pride in gaining a deep understanding of your specific hiring needs as well as the candidates’ motivations in order to make the perfect match every time. That means we go beyond the candidate’s CV to truly uncover what it is that drives them and what they’re looking for in their job and career to ensure we find the right match for your business. Are they the right Job Fit, Boss Fit and Company Fit? Can they do the job, and do it well? Are they a good fit for you as their leader? And are they a good cultural fit for your team and your company?

Top Talent Pool

Randstad clients are given priority access to top talent in every profession and industry through our extensive talent network. Our recruitment consultants provide a shortlist of the best candidates from a wide variety of channels – both those actively looking for work and those that are passively available. One of the most valuable parts of working with Randstad is our knowledge of and access to passive candidates – those who are not actively looking for work but could be persuaded if presented with the right opportunity, in the right way. That means exclusive access to talent you wouldn’t find if advertising the job yourself.
