Quality of Hire Process

We incorporate a comprehensive, multi-step process that is integrated with our client’s interview process requirements to identify, vet, present, and close the right candidates for our client’s review.

If other steps are requested by our client (such as administering a screening assessment or drug test), the Search Process is modified to incorporate those additional steps. Every successful placement is the result of utilizing this highly refined and time-tested search process with a number of unique tools.
