Outsourced Recruiting Q & A

Q: Do you ever use Staffing or Recruiting Agencies to assist in your hiring efforts? How much do you spend in placement fees and marked-up bill rates?

A: Standard placement fees in today’s market range from 20% -30% and bill rates can exceed markups of 100%. FosterThomas’ Outsourced Recruiting Services eliminates costly markups and placement fees. FosterThomas’ Recruiting Department can be engaged on an hourly contract for a flat rate, just like hiring a part-time Recruiter off the street, minus the overhead. When a résumé of a fully screened candidate is submitted for client review, there is no additional fee or cost associated with the hire of any candidate.

Q: Do you have an in-house recruiter or recruiting department?  Have you ever had to hire a Contract Recruiter for spikes in hiring?

A:  By utilizing the FosterThomas Outsourced Recruiting Services our clients can supplement an existing recruiting force during surges or spikes in the hiring cycle. Clients can also replace the need to have a recruiter on staff with a full time salary and benefits by engaging an existing, structured recruiting department. This program allows for the ability to modulate costs based on staff requirements. With a fluid and flexible structure custom fit to each client, FosterThomas can scale up hours and effort when hiring needs increase or reduce our service and your costs when needs are met.

Q:  Do you need assistance with the hiring process during temporary spikes and surges?

A:  In business, there are times when a new Government contract or new client will put you in a position of needing to staff up quickly.  With FosterThomas managing the recruitment process, you can feel confident you are placing the right people in the right jobs.  Our services are designed to give you all the benefits of outsourcing your recruiting process, while allowing you to retain complete control of critical functions.

Testimonials

“I have been working closely with Steve Fritsch (FosterThomas Recruiter) on some quick turn-around positions. He is doing a really great job. The positions we have been working on have been very hard to fill due to location and selective customer! We just got done filling a Technical Writer slot that has been open for months. The customer is extremely pleased with the candidate we are hiring. Steve has been great throughout the whole process. He is always very responsive and pleasant to work with. I am going out on vacation next week and without hesitation he is filling in for me. He is planning to work directly with our customer on recruiting. You just don’t know how much stress is alleviated knowing that it will be taken care of while I am out. This type of work ethic is what keeps me coming back to FosterThomas over and over again.”
