"What sets a top placement agency apart? Understanding the key attributes of quality placement services"


Recruiter calling candidates

Here are some of the top characteristics of a quality placement agency.


Industry Expertise: The recruiters should have a strong understanding of your industry, its current trends, and the specific skills and experience that are in demand. This allows the agency to identify qualified candidates who are a good fit for the company culture and the requirements of the position.


Inti Solutions conducts targeted searches, supplying only 3 QUALIFIED candidates for each job search. A junior, intermediate, and a senior resource. It's our job to screen candidates before sending them to you. (Unless asked for more). If we find a mystery candidate, we may submit them as well. (Mystery candidates are those that have the qualifications, but may be over looked because they are in a different business sector or associated area.)


 

team reviewing candidates

Strong Network: A good placement agency will have a large and active network of potential candidates. Their network should include people who are actively looking for new jobs as well as passive candidates who might not be aware of the opportunity but would be a good fit.


Inti Solutions has over 3600 contacts in their database, and also has access to job boards to seek those that fit your requirements.


 

communication is key

Communications:

The agency should be good at communicating with both you and the candidates. They should take the time to understand your needs and what you are looking for in a candidate. They should also be able to keep you updated on the progress of the search and provide you with feedback from candidates.


Inti Solutions strives to maintains steady stream of communication during the search process, candidate interviews, and onboarding. If hired, we monitor ongoing contract renewals and revisions.

 

Transparency and

Trustworthiness: A reputable placement agency will be honest and upfront with you about their fees, the candidates they are presenting, and the timelines that they are working with. You should feel confident that they are working in your best interests.


Inti Solutions is one of the few agencies (the only agency?) that provides 100% of the client's rate to the candidate. How do we make money? We charge a flat rate, tax deductible management fee to the contractor. There's no secret rate, no hidden markups or any of the treachery that can be associated with other billing practices. (A blog on this topic to follow)


 


Streamlined Processes:

The agency should have a well-defined process for finding and placing candidates. This should include activities like resume screening, interviewing, and reference checks.

Additionally, the agency should have a solid billing process that ensures that invoices and payments to contractors are made on time, every time.


Inti Solutions has been hiring quality candidates since 2005. We experience with automated billing systems like Open Invoice, Microsoft Dynamics, and SAP; ensuring that transactions are correct and done on time.



 

Wrapping it up:

These are just a few of the attributes that an agency should possess when you are selecting a hiring partner. Hiring is an important part of your business. The right people will make you more competitive and allow you to provide a livelihood for someone and their family. (The wrong hire is the opposite of all that.) Inti Solutions is striving to be the best, putting our clients and contractors first.
