Guarantees aren’t exactly something that recruiters love. However, the vast majority of recruiters offer some sort of guarantee to their client companies on the candidates that they place with them. What percentage of recruiters offers a guarantee to their clients? Well, that’s one of the questions we set out to answer in a recent survey that we conducted of recruiters all across the country.
We asked recruiters a number of targeted questions about the guarantees that they offer, and the response that we received from the survey was overwhelming. Not only did recruiters want to participate in the survey, but they also wanted to know the results of the survey. And that’s one of the reasons we’ve decided to blog about the results and share the information that we collected with other recruiters.
Top Echelon President Mark Demaree is blogging about the results of our survey, and he will be publishing a series of blog posts on the Top Echelon Recruiter Training Blog about the responses that we received. In fact, you can read the initial post in that series by clicking on the link below:
The subject of guarantees is a very deep one, mainly because recruiters approach the subject quite differently. What makes sense for one recruiter might seem like utter lunacy to another. Some recruiters offer a year guarantee. Some don’t offer any guarantees at all. It all comes down to the recruiter’s business model, personal preference, and what works (or doesn’t work) for them.
What about you? What are your thoughts on guarantees? What type do you currently offer? Or do you not offer one?
