Velocity Talent Overview

  1. 1. Velocity Talent A GLIMPSE IN TO OUR PROCESS Cindy Dunn Director of Financial Recruitment
  2. 2. We KNOW Talented People <ul><li>How Good Is Your Company? </li></ul><ul><li>A McKinsey & Company survey of leaders and managers several years ago revealed that only 11% of them “strongly agreed” that “our company has enough talented managers to substantially increase our performance relative to competitors.” And with more than 290 million people in the United States, you would think it would be easy to find one or two talented persons to move you and your company forward. </li></ul><ul><li>So Why Is It So Hard?? </li></ul><ul><li>Talent is Hard to Find – And Harder to Catch </li></ul><ul><li>No one would dispute that finding the “right” individuals is critical to your success. The recruiting process, however, can be a daunting, time-consuming and emotional task. And just because you’re looking doesn’t mean that people you want are searching for you. Then, when you find them, you may have to convince them that you are their best potion. How do you know what it will take to close the deal? </li></ul>

  5. 5. Dedicated Search Process (AIM) <ul><li>“ What is our Dedicated Search Process ? </li></ul><ul><li>How is working with us different than with other groups?” </li></ul><ul><li>AIM: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>A ssess </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>I mplement </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>M onitor </li></ul></ul>A ssess “ You and I will work together to assess your current situation. We will go beyond your immediate needs and look at the complete picture – your goals and the challenges you will face in achieving those goals. As a result of our years of experience working exclusively within this sector, we are often able to suggest more effective approaches to your staffing needs. Our next step is to identify all of the skills and experience that will be needed in the person you hire. Because we will pro-actively bring this person into the market, I recommend that you think beyond simple job specifications. Think about the makeup of your team – what specific skills, product knowledge or account knowledge would make the greatest contribution to the composition of your entire group?”
  6. 6. Dedicated Search Process (AIM) <ul><li>“ What is our Dedicated Search Process ? </li></ul><ul><li>How is working with us different than with other groups?” </li></ul><ul><li>AIM: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>A ssess </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>I mplement </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>M onitor </li></ul></ul>I mplement “ Next we will identify the titles this person might now hold, what companies they might be with, and what are the key factors in identifying the top performers in that arena. The top performers in any given marketplace are almost always happy in their current situation. Very few of the people we place are folks who are actively looking. Therefore, we will next co-create the most powerful message to demonstrate to those top performers that your company is the most exciting venue for their future success. I will then systematically contact the people we have targeted and make the most persuasive presentation possible. I will give you detailed feedback throughout the process and if I find that we need to adjust our message I will let you know that right away. In the end, you will know that you are talking to all of the most qualified people who could be motivated to consider your opportunity.”
  7. 7. Dedicated Search Process (AIM) <ul><li>“ What is our Dedicated Search Process ? </li></ul><ul><li>How is working with us different than with other groups?” </li></ul><ul><li>AIM: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>A ssess </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>I mplement </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>M onitor </li></ul></ul>M onitor “ Finally, I will work with your new hire to help them with their resignation and throughout the transition period. Beyond that, we partner with you to create a strategic recruitment and retention plan – a plan that will take us beyond responding to immediate needs and allow us to anticipate future needs and opportunities in the marketplace. The US Bureau of Labor Statistics projects over 10 million more jobs than people by 2010 in the United States alone. Those companies that have anticipated this deficit, and have a strategy to respond to it, will have a significant competitive advantage.”
  8. 8. Relocation Assistance Relocation Assistance As a member of the MRI Network, Velocity Talent provides the following consultation and reporting services at no charge and actual candidate relocation services (moving; sale of real estate, mortgage assistance) at significant savings to our clients. Relocation Pre-Decision Support Moving “Quickie Quote” This tool provides a means to calculate the cost of moving an employee’s household goods. Quotes are determined factoring the number of bedrooms, size of house or apartment, and the number of miles. We are able to coordinate multiple estimates from individual carriers, and all estimates are “guaranteed not to exceed”. City Profile/Cost of Living Analysis A tool to help determine appropriate compensation levels for potential hires. We have compiled the most current and comprehensive cost of living database in the country, assessing the overall effect relocation has on an employee’s income. Information reported includes standard and executive cost of living indices, housing and rental information, weather, population, taxes, crime rates, health care, elder care, day care, education information, important phone numbers, and more.
  9. 9. Relocation Assistance (Continued) <ul><li>National School Reports These reports provide the employee with detailed information on all local, public, and private schools K-12. Each report contains data such as academic achievements, student/teacher ratios, and contact information which allows the employee the opportunity to interview prospective schools. </li></ul><ul><li>Community Orientation Tour Trained real estate agents can be made available to provide a community orientation tour for better-informed decision making, which often leads to higher job acceptance rates. </li></ul><ul><li>Relocation Policy Assistance An appropriately aligned policy can serve as a critical element in your employee recruitment and retention initiatives. Designing the most meaningful employee mobility solutions requires experience and a willingness to listen. We offer policy evaluation and development, as well as assistance in creating policy handbooks and associated communication. </li></ul><ul><li>Mortgage Pre-qualification FAS will arrange to have a mortgage counselor guide the transferee through the entire pre-qualification process, presenting unique mortgage programs which include preferred corporate employee rates, discounted closing costs, and trailing spouse. </li></ul>
