Our recently published articles on Vetted and Curated Talent covered how vetting and curating talent is critical if organizations want to stay competitive in today’s market. This is true of all forms of work — full-time, part-time, contract, offsite, or on.
To summarize, eTeam Vetted Talent is talent that’s been put through a thorough screening, interviewing, and skills assessment process by experienced tech subject matter experts (SMEs) before they are submitted for a role. This translates to higher quality talent and faster speed-to-hire — all at a lower cost than organizations are used to paying via traditional staffing methods.
What is a curation partner?
Curation partners should provide objective, transparent, unbiased vetting of talent combined with a fast, personalized experience to ensure candidates are engaged and involved in the process. This results in improved quality, faster, and at a lower cost, which is more critical than ever given the post-pandemic environment of many organizations.
Sourcing talent through highly vetted and curated channels is becoming increasingly necessary as highly qualified candidates demand more from the hiring experience and have many options where and when they work.
What should you be looking for in a curation partner?
There are a few core components that should be considered when selecting a curation partner. There are a lot of technologies and organizations that boast rigor around how they find, vet, and engage top talent. But very few have a global subject matter expert pool large enough to continuously curate and pipeline talent, and understand skills on a global scale that companies are looking for, and have proven agility and expertise to ensure their clients are getting the top talent in a given field.
Finding the right partner that can meet the needs of your organization is critical. This is your talent. If you get it wrong, the implications to your business success, attracting and retaining top talent, and staying competitive in today’s market could be considerably impacted.
Having a strategic, systematic, tailored process that talent can depend on will make it a successful experience for them. They’ll be more apt to tell others in their network about that experience, which means they’ll refer other quality talent to join your network.
At eTeam, we identify at a granular level the skills needed to build value for our customers. We’ve been doing this for decades, which allows us to come into organizations shifting because of the pandemic. “As hiring has picked up, internal mobility has come into the spotlight, with organisations trying to look after their permanent employees as well as plugging the gap in skills and experience they cannot find externally,” a recent Kornferry report stated about the future of work. “This has put the spotlight on internal recruitment processes, with many organisations finding their existing processes aren’t up to the task.”
Ensuring your partner has a methodical, repeatable, proven process for engaging and screening talent will put you at ease that the first impression a person has with your organization comes from a partner that knows exactly who you are and how to position, not only a role, but your culture and brand as a whole.
Companies are done scouring job boards or receiving talent that’s had a brief conversation with a recruiter who doesn’t possess the requisite skills before being submitted — a standard practice of many staffing agencies.
At eTeam, we have a network of over 18,000 subject matter experts (SMEs) trained across 1,000+ skillsets powered by a talent delivery team of over 1500 recruiters. This means we can scale up or down quickly, continuously fill your talent pipeline, and deliver support on a global scale.
In a recent FlexJobs survey, 65% of respondents reported the desire to be full-time remote employees post-pandemic, and 31% want a hybrid remote work environment. That’s 96% of respondents who want some form of remote work. If organizations want to compete for top talent in the future, offering this type of flexibility is a must, and they’ll need a partner that can recruit on a global scale.
Skill-based recruitment (with no location restrictions) will rely on staffing partners with a global reach who can scale talent quickly based on an organization’s projects.
At eTeam, we’ve invested heavily in an innovative and thorough curation and vetting process that benefits all parties. It’s critical to your future workforce to choose a curation partner that can grow with you and your hiring needs.
We work with hundreds of global organizations and have a reach large enough to pipeline talent that have been proven in their individual fields.
