Firms helping firms: a collaborative network

Whether referred to as splits or recruiter networks, there has been scattered buzz around the true value of agency to agency collaboration in the staffing and recruiting industry and the quality of supporting tools out there.

After meeting with a significant number of agency recruiting professionals over the past several months, I’ve generated the following takeaways:

  • Recruiters like the idea of getting access to additional candidates and other recruiters without adding internal staff

  • Recruiters are concerned about losing job orders and/or candidates to firms due to unscrupulous behavior

  • Recruiters are concerned because many networks tend to die out due to lack of job orders

From this feedback I have been working with my team here at Bullhorn to develop a new agency collaboration network called PowerFill.

I’m particularly interested in gathering feedback on this network from this community as I know several of you have utilized split networks in the past. Please give it a test drive and let me know your thoughts. I’m excited to hear from you!

It can work, but work all the detail out on:
Who talks to client?
Who Submitts candidates?
Who bills client?
ETC small things but can blow up fast if you do not work it all out...

C.B.- Thanks for the comment!
I agree, the details do need to be worked out by both parties. It's why we have created a message center (like LinkedIn or Facebook) to make sure all this is clear during the process. We hope you will give it a try.
