How does Hiregy’s candidate screening process help our clients?

Posted by Caitlin Thompson on Feb 11, 2016 3:55:16 PM

On February 7, 2016, Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller showed the world what it means to be a great team member. His efforts were rewarded when he was officially named MVP of American football’s most important game.

Miller’s accomplishments highlight the importance of building the right team for your business. Each staff member's skills, background and personality can make or break your company’s track record. This is why pro sports teams invest significant time and effort in assessing prospects before they’re added to the roster. It is also the reason why Hiregy invests in a robust candidate screening process that exceeds many of our competitors’ efforts.

The Hidden Costs of Hiring

Posted by Shaun Androff on Feb 3, 2016 8:30:00 AM

We recently sat down with the CEO of an insurance firm who was struggling to fill a key sales position. The spot had been empty for three months and she was ready to bring on a recruiting partner to help fill the role. By asking a few questions, we realized that the empty position was draining her company of thousands of dollars each month. No one had realized it because her team was juggling more work and overflowing to-do lists due to the empty position. The hidden costs of hiring were damaging her business.

Some costs related to expanding your staff are easy to track, such as the price of advertising, background checks and new equipment. Others require a bit of digging to reveal, but are still relatively straightforward to calculate, such as the value of a hiring manager's time spent writing job descriptions and interviewing. So what are the hidden costs — the sneaky, silent items that drain value from businesses, often without their even knowing? Keep your eye out for these stealthy wealth eaters.

Asking For Negative References In An Interview

Posted by Andy Dunscombe on Oct 26, 2015 9:51:00 AM

It is almost automatic for a candidate to include a list of references when applying for a job. These references will most certainly give a stellar review of said candidate, insisting that they will be a valued member of your team and that you cannot pass on the opportunity to put them on your payroll. Some references might be more honest than others, listing some faults of said candidate but they will usually follow that up with how the candidate worked and overcame any faults. These people were picked as a candidate's reference for a reason.

The Purpose Of Exit Interviews

Posted by Andy Dunscombe on Oct 19, 2015 11:35:00 AM

Employees who have resigned from a company have one last, very important gift they can give their employers. That gift is...cleaning the break room microwave. No, I'm kidding (although that would be nice, and think of the recommendations they would get from their boss and coworkers down the road!). That last important gift is an exit interview. Why an exit interview? I recently asked that question, and a few others, to Tonya McGriff-Stice, whose job title is Program Manager, Talent Acquisition for PSCU in Tampa.

The Advantage of the 3 Email Rule

Posted by Andy Dunscombe on Oct 12, 2015 2:41:00 PM

Quick question: How much time do you spend during an average work week on emails? I'm imagining the answers range from "a lot" to "too much." Fear not, as you are not alone. A study outlined in the Washington Post says that 28 percent of our work week (11 hours) is spent on emails. Why is this? Probably because email is so convenient. With busy schedules, it can be easier to email back and forth with someone rather than to meet with them in person or have a phone call.
