The workforce is the foundation of success for all organizations, and without great talent at all levels, companies run the risk of failure. Sourcing the best talent when the need arises is critical and requires experience and expertise to implement effectively. Organizations that attempt to recruit internally often discover the process is much more costly, both in terms of time and money, than anticipated. Working with recruiting firms like Search Solution Group provides access to the best talent pool, ensures experience in vetting candidates, and fills open positions in the least amount of time.
Best Talent is Currently Employed
Top talent in any given industry is currently employed. Companies are not likely to find the best candidate on job search sites or through job listings, and in many cases, the top talent will actually be working for a direct competitor. Recruiters know how to approach actively employed professionals appropriately, maintain confidentiality when necessary, and present new opportunities convincingly. Partnering with SSG expands the talent pool to include passive candidates, that is professionals who not are actively seeking new positions, and guarantees hiring managers have access to the top candidates.
Time and Resources
Recruiting new hires is a time-consuming process. Sourcing talent requires labor-intensive searches and significant interaction with potential candidates. Often the process includes several rounds of meetings and conversations to fully apprise potential candidates of the benefits and value of making a career change. In many cases, organizations greatly underestimate the time commitment involved in sourcing talent. At SSG, our recruiters have a large network of both active and passive candidates in all major industries at arms reach. In addition, our recruiters know where to start the process and how to build momentum to source talent quickly and effectively.
Expertise and Experience Adds Value
Because many organizations do not hire new employees on a regular basis, staff assigned with the task of finding new or replacement employees lack recruiting experience. SSG recruiters are experienced experts in the recruiting process. Our team members know the industry and job market for the verticals they serve and have connections at all levels. SSG headhunters specialize in making initial contact with passive candidates and selling them on new job opportunities. As the list of candidates narrows, our recruiters ask probing questions to investigate the candidate’s background and asses how well the prospective hire fits with the open position and with the organization as a whole.

Talent acquisition is challenging and time-consuming. This is particularly true considering top talent is typically already employed. When clients partner with SSG, our team brings the experience and expertise necessary to efficiently and cost-effectively source both active and passive candidates.
