STOP HUNTING HEADS AND START CULTIVATING TALENT
Is there a lack of quality in the technical candidates you are seeing?
Do you feel candidates are asking for too much money or the overall cost of recruitment is too high?
Is there a fear of attrition that makes the recruitment process too risky?
THE TRUTH IS, YOU CAN’T AFFORD TO HIRE THE WRONG PERSON…
The Harvard Business Review points out that as much as 80% of employee turnover is due to bad hiring decisions. The Department of Labor estimates the cost to be 30% of the salary while a recent study by SHRM said it could cost of up 5x the annual salary. So, a poor hiring decision for a candidate earning $100k per year could cost, on average, $250k! There are also other costs to consider including lost productivity, time to train and re-train, the impact on employee morale, and missed opportunities.
A NEW PARADIGM IS REQUIRED TO SUCCESSFULLY RECRUIT THE TOP 15% OF TECHNICAL TALENT
To hire top technical talent, there must be an integrated-and-systematic process in place that meets the needs of all stakeholders, including candidates, hiring managers, and recruiters.
Paradigm’s Technical Recruitment Strategy achieves the attraction of the top 15% of technical talent, while simultaneously excluding the bottom 85% of candidates. Having demonstrated our authority in the marketplace, these candidates see us as trusted advisers and are more likely to engage with us and consider opportunities which we present. Our performance and outcome based assessments will filter even further to ensure you are considering only the top 3-4 highest quality candidates who are interested in the intrinsic value of the opportunity and not just a pay raise, thereby making the actual acquisition and retention of your chosen candidate less risky.

- Working with a client such as HISD that has a harder time competing for top technical talent, Paradigm Group’s recruitment strategy allowed us to use our demonstrated authority in the marketplace to increase awareness of the opportunities and benefits available to prospective technical talent. Paradigm Group worked closely with the hiring managers to define the profile of the ideal candidate, sourced prospects, and engaged with the best talent, leading to the successful placement of 20+ direct-hire Technical professionals at HISD. The nature of their hiring process required constant (and prolonged) candidate nurturing, but with the trust and rapport we have established over time with our pipeline of candidates, we could keep them committed.
