Hiregy’s recruiting services are built around a commitment to connect exceptional people in Central Florida, including Orlando, Tampa and St. Petersburg. Here’s why.
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.

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.
At Hiregy we interview each candidate we present to our client companies and we've gathered feedback on many interviews conducted by area hiring managers. There's one question that seems to give most people grief: "what do you consider your greatest weakness?"
You may have seen the trailer for the movie “The Internship,” a story about 2 middle-aged guys who intern with Google. In one scene, Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson struggle to figure out how to do an interview via Skype. While technology such as Skype or Facetime is a valuable tool to use early in the interview process, there are many reasons why you should meet candidates in person before you make any hiring decision.
If you’ve ever worked in a call center, you know that one bad apple can affect the whole bunch. This is a good reason to invest a little more time on the front end to make sure you hire positive candidates. If you take the time to evaluate candidates thoroughly for a positive attitude, your team will thank you for it. In fact, many surveys show teams are more productive and happier when surrounded by other co-workers who are smiling and have friendly, positive attitudes. It’s not only good for your team but also good for your customers.
Successful managers know how critical great administrative support is to their team’s success. This success starts with hiring the right talent in administrative and clerical staffing roles.
