I want to hear from you - really I do. I want honest, blunt and clever feedback.
I am the Director of a smallish recruitment agency with major accounts and jobs rolling in the door - but that's not success.
a) FINDING great consultants and;
b) KEEPING them
I take responsibility for (b) and by and large we don't lose high performing consultants because we value them so highly - but we are small and I would love some fresh ideas on how to attract the right consultants in an overheated market.
To our way of thinking the right consultants are; persistent, honest, diligent, creative, energetic and like a glass of wine and a laugh on Friday afternoon. We offer clarity on what market we serve, transparent and traceable bonus system, monthly RDO's, great client list and a collegiate working environment (amongst other tangibles). But recruitment agencies basically do the same sort of work and I struggle with a unique employment value proposition that stands out from the crowd.
So over to you - I would love what hear what you look for in an agency employer and what makes one stand out from others. Have you seen a company do something different and unique (and followed through)? Have you worked with clients who have attraction strategies you have admired?
