Save Time by Hiring Experienced Recruiters

Skilled recruiters save companies time by understanding their unique requirements and then seeking out the talent that dovetails with those needs. 

This can be particularly helpful when niche positions need to be filled; when demand for specialized tech talent is high (and the available pool is thereby smaller); and when timelines are tight. Skilled placements by talent acquisition professionals help to prevent the churn and burn syndrome where companies need to replace talent on an ongoing basis and allows them to meet tight deadlines with quality work that enhances their reputation and maximizes their bottom line.

Because High5 provides recruiters with unique opportunities and proprietary tools, we’re able to attract ones with in-demand skills—which in turn allows your company to have convenient access to the best of today’s talent recruitment professionals who will streamline the talent acquisition process for you.

How High5 Provides Crucial Recruiting Solutions

The talent acquisition field is a highly competitive one, with recruiters facing plenty of professional challenges. Here are some of the most common, along with how High5 offers the needed solutions so that we can attract the best talent acquisition professionals who in turn will fulfill your company’s hiring needs.

Too Much Marketplace Noise

Plenty of companies are looking to hire quality professionals, and there can be great demand for professionals who have desirable technological skills and related workplace experience. Professional talent, meanwhile, are busy looking for work that matches their interests, abilities, and qualifications.

Lagging Hire Times

At High5, we’ve cut out 70% of the screening time and lowered the time-to-fill average by 15%, needing less than one week versus the nearly two weeks that’s typically required through other platforms.

Too Much Data to Manage

FAQs About Recruiter Solutions

A more traditional platform would allow the talent to set up accounts and then wait for them to be noticed by recruiters and companies—a “build it and they will come” type of approach that, let’s face it, doesn’t really work. At High5, we cultivate and care for our recruiters with the same amount of time and attention as we do our technologically savvy talent, offering the recruiters the resources and opportunities they need to be successful on our platform.

In fact, we specifically created High5 after recognizing that better ways must exist to connect the three elements of the technology-based talent supply chain: the technology professionals, the recruiters, and the companies. This means that our platform was built from the ground up with that philosophy in mind.

Because we know that not all companies have the same needs, we’ve created a place where a broad range of recruiters can benefit from the platform, including those with niche specialties in corporate and/or agency work. We give them the resources they need to find the professional talent you require, whether they work on a freelance/independent contractor basis; on a contract, contract-to-hire, project, or SOW arrangement; or are available for part-time or full-time work.

Here’s one more reason to choose High5 for your hiring needs. We guarantee quality, something we can do with confidence because of our careful vetting processes, along with process transparency.

We’ll just need a bit of information from you, as an employer, and then a High5 team member will be in touch with you within 48 hours. We look forward to meeting you and fulfilling your needs for second to none recruiting solutions.

Comprehensive Guide to Hire Recruiters

If your company is ready to partner with a recruiter (or multiple ones for diverse hiring purposes), it’s important to select ones who have the experience and specialized knowledge that you need. The most effective recruiters make quality hiring matches in an efficient way, satisfying the needs of both the company that needs professional talent and the job-seeking professional.

When choosing which recruiters to partner with, it’s important to consider company goals as well the hiring challenges that you’ve experienced. What job titles, for example, does your human resources department have the most difficulties with when finding the right candidates? If your answers include full stack developers, cloud computing engineers, and/or big data developers, know that this can be a challenge for many companies.

That’s because, combined, these three job titles make up 80% of all tech hires, globally—but the right recruiter can cut through the competition and noise to find the talent your company needs and present you with top choices. This is, in fact, one of High5’s specialties.

Recruiters can relieve some of the pressure on your hard-working human resources department. While a busy HR department could get overwhelmed by a big stack of resumes for just one key position, an experienced, knowledgeable recruiter—especially one with access to the cutting edge, data-driven tools provided by High5—can seamlessly prioritize candidate choices. This frees up the HR department for other company priorities, perhaps creating effective retention campaigns, as just one example, to keep the prized talent that’s been recruited.

Plus, does this next scenario sound familiar? Your HR department worked hard to find just the right candidate but, when an offer was made, the chosen candidate shared that they had just accepted an offer from another company. Your in-house department must now look at alternative choices, with the process taking up additional time that could go towards other non-hiring-related tasks. In some cases, they’d even need to start over at ground zero. Recruiters, however, can remain ultra focused on finding the right candidates for you until the position is filled, having additional quality choices for your company to consider.

Talent acquisition professionals often offer a spectrum of additional services, and ones that may be offered include:

  • Consulting services: Each company has its own hiring practices and, once the methodology is established, they are often not changed. When you hire recruiters, you can also get a fresh look at your company’s practices, including where the repetition of certain ones may not get you the results you want and need in today’s environment. They can advise your company on how to use their hard-earned strategies to refresh and revitalize hiring practices.

  • Salary negotiations: Recruiters are uniquely positioned to know what companies are offering for specific positions and—perhaps even more valuable—they have deep knowledge into how much other companies, including those in your industry, are willing to negotiate to get their candidates of choice. So, they can have a keen sense of fair market rates for particular skill sets. This means that they can also offer insights about when it might be time to walk away from the negotiating table and connect with another qualified candidate.

  • Transition Services: When companies are in transition, they may need new technology solutions or unique insights into technological challenges—solutions and insights that may not be as much in demand once the company has transitioned to its new business model. In other words, these are highly valued yet short-term needs. Recruiters can identify candidates who possess the change management skills that are needed in this scenario, above and beyond the technical skills required to get the job done right.

     

Overseas Recruiting Solutions

Companies in the United States are often open to the incredible amount of talent available around the globe, wanting the best professionals out there—and let’s face it. Because companies can’t specify work hours for independent workers (only a project’s timelines and deadlines), it typically doesn’t matter what time zone those technology professionals reside in—just that they have the right skills sets, ones that fit your needs and budget.

The same is true when it’s time to hire recruiters. They’re also located all around the globe, each with unique skills sets and experiences. So, it can make sense to cast a broad net when considering recruiting solutions on the High5 platform, including overseas professionals, and then narrow down the options according to your unique requirements.

How to Choose Your Recruiters

On the High5 platform, recruiters can open an account and fill out a profile, just like technology professionals can. Your company can review these profiles and contact ones of interest, asking them additional questions and/or asking for additional examples of successful connections made.

Questions to ask yourself as you make selections include:

  • Does this recruiter have experience in the industries where we will need to hire talent?

  • What specialties does this recruiter have? Do they match what you need? Are any key ones missing? If so, how central are they to your company’s hiring needs?

  • How quickly did the recruiter respond to questions you had? How complete were the answers?

  • In personal interactions with this recruiter, how comfortable did you feel? Just as in any profession, people can have a variety of personalities and working styles, from highly efficient ones without much chit-chat to people who like to establish a bit of rapport first. Neither is necessarily “bad.” Look for corporate culture fit.

Getting Started

Once you’ve chosen the recruiters your company will partner with to find talent, tips that can help create an optimal relationship from the start include these:

  • Clearly state requirements for the talent you need to hire, including but not necessarily limited to the:
    • technical skills, tools, and computer languages required
    • soft skills, such as verbal and written communication skills, and their level of importance
    • agreement type (freelance, contract, SOW, employee, etc.)
  • Agree upon ways in which you’ll communicate with the recruiter (and vice versa) and on how often you’ll touch base.

  • Give feedback, as needed, so that the recruiter can provide even more laser-targeted recommendations.

  • Provide clarity on both your budget and timelines.

  • Inform the recruiter about changes in your needs as soon as possible.

  • Let the recruiter know if professionals they recommend to your company will be required to take a skills test and how they will be compensated for doing so if required.

If circumstances allow, it can be helpful to assign a recruiter that’s new to your company with talent needs that don’t have a super-tight deadline. That said, some recruiters may specialize in providing especially quick recommendations. As a final tip, be transparent about how the recruiter will be paid and stick to that agreement.
