5 Headaches Solved By FlatFee Recruiting

Hiring can feel like a headache when you are consistently not getting the results you want. What if there was a better way? What if you could look at hiring as an exciting opportunity to fill the gaps your team experiences. And have the confidence to know you are using a process that’s going to provide just that.

Say goodbye to hiring stress and headaches (or worse stress-headaches) and introduce yourself to our new FlatFee IT recruitment process. It kicks traditional recruitment methods to the curb and provides a resource for small and middle-sized businesses to build the winning team they dreamed of. Even more, with more confidence in the end result and at a fraction of the price.

If your current hiring method is not delivering the results you want, then it’s time to look at how FlatFee IT can help. It’s geared to long-term success and restful nights.


Hiring Headache #1 – I don’t know exactly what I’m looking for (Our job postings sound just like everyone else)

Plain and simple, if you don’t know exactly what you’re looking for, you will not get what you need. Generic positions turn into generic job postings that do not deliver top candidates.

Yes, it may feel easier and certainly faster to just laundry list a bunch of skills you think the candidate needs. But that doesn’t result in long-term success for you OR your new hire and can be the beginning of a costly hiring mistake.

Our Flat Fee IT process begins with our Outcome-Drive Job Description which we assist you with in your onboarding. This step will save you time and headaches down the road and leads to a results-driven job description that makes all the difference. This is the type of job description that stands out and becomes attractive to the right candidate.

Our FlatFee IT process ensures you know what you’re looking for in your new hire in terms of the results. And creates a much more attractive job description to the right candidate. This step alone cures many hiring headaches along the way.


Hiring Headache #2 – Recruiting fees are too high so I have to go it alone

Contingency based models are expensive and outdated. It’s a system built on speed, not accuracy. And that kind of speed actually slows you down.

With contingency based recruiting you pay for all the unpaid recruiting efforts the agency makes. Since the recruiting firm takes on all the risk in this long standing industry model, the fee is typically 20-25% of a candidate’s first year salary ($100k SALARY is $20,000 to $25,000) to make up for all the work they do that goes unpaid.

Our FlatFee It solves that problem and you only invest in the search that matters to you – YOURS. A flat rate for each hire helps control your hiring expenses and SAVES YOU 50-70% compared to traditional recruitment firms.

It’s a perfect solution for small to medium-sized businesses to get the support and partnership they need to recruit the best tech talent out there.


Hiring Headache #3 – Too many unvetted resumes end up on my desk

Like we said above, the archaic recruiting system is built on speed. And traditional recruiting firms typically send over as many resumes as they can to fill a new position hoping one will stick. AND they’ll be the first to get that person to you so they get paid.

This means you end up with a stack of resumes that may or may not be what you’re looking for and not enough time to go through them all.

The FlatFee IT process takes your time into account to help you focus on only the most qualified candidates. We conduct detailed screening, background and reference checks, and provide you with a list of the top 3-4 candidates for your open IT position. You’ll know any of the candidates we forward can do the job. You just need to focus on the interview and the best fit for your team.


Hiring Headache #4 – Too many bad hires

There are many reasons a new hire doesn’t stick. Don’t let miscommunication of expectations be one of them.

When expectations don’t line up between your new candidate to the position or you to the new candidate, you are asking for a headache.

Let’s revisit the Outcome-Driven Job Description within each FlatFee IT project. This document is the backbone of getting the right candidates in the right positions. And as your partner, we walk you through it to ensure you and potential new candidates are on the same page right from the beginning.

Our outcome driven plan gets results, with 94% OF CANDIDATES placed still on the job 12 months later. You don’t have to experience costly hiring mistakes anymore.


Hiring Headache #5 – No way to confirm the new hire’s performance/effectiveness

We’ve slowed down to speed up and we solved this headache for our clients using the same process we introduced above. The FlatFee IT process doesn’t just help you get set up for the interviews and hiring, it goes way beyond that.

The Outcome-Driven Job Description has life beyond the first day. You and the new hire can use it to benchmark success in the position over the entire first year. There’s no miscommunication of expectations or goals because they were documented before the first handshake. And all parties involved can follow along to make sure all expectations are being met or addressed.

You clearly know if your new hire is contributing the way you all set out for them to.

The FlatFee IT process is a revolutionary way for small to medium-sized businesses to partner with us to get the expert recruiting help they need. And our experience and work backs up our confidence.

We stand behind our hires. If you’re not 100% satisfied with the selected candidate within the first 90 days, we’ll conduct a new search at no additional cost. Contact us today to learn more about how we can use the FlatFee IT process to build your winning team.
