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.

Hiring Managers: Need More Than a Perfect Resume and Interview?

Posted by Bill Fries on Oct 21, 2013 8:27:00 AM

Have you ever met with a candidate who had the perfect resume, excellent experience, perfectly-matched skills and said all of the right things in the interview but your gut still said “don’t hire them?” Recently, I was part of a team working on a high-level executive search.   We had hundreds of candidates interested in the position but only a few met our hiring criteria.   One candidate in particular looked perfect.  The resume was a model which could have been used as our job description. In a panel-style interview, this candidate was poised, provided thoughtful answers with brevity and clarity and was completely comfortable with their surroundings.  Not a single bead of sweat rolled down their face as they zapped every tough question from the committee of 7. A presentation followed.  One of the best we’ve seen.  A perfect performance.
