Cut Recruitment Costs, Fill Positions Faster: Get to Know the Real Advantages of a Talent Acquisition Partnership

As the recruiting landscape continues to change so must your recruiting partner. They need to be flexible enough to adapt to your unique situation. In today’s job environment, there is no “one size fits all” approach to recruitment. Your company has specific needs and they may vary based on seasonality or the positions you are trying to fill. For example, would you recruit for a sales team in the same way that you would hire a Vice President of HR? We didn’t think so! The process may be similar, but the approach is strategically different. You need a partner that will understand your individual company’s challenges and goals and then create a customized recruitment strategy that will help you achieve those goals.

At Alaant, our people-first approach centers around listening to what our clients need. Here is a real-world example of our talent acquisition partnership program (TAP), which is designed to deliver flexible and creative methods for us to partner based on budget, needs and desired outcomes, at its best.

The Challenge: Our client, a national payroll company with 7 office locations, had no defined process or methodology to recruit and hire. Decentralized HR was a challenge as hiring managers were making different decisions at each company location with no consistency. The company needed to fill 10 open positions with qualified candidates quickly to ensure they were providing their clients with an exceptional customer experience.

The Alaant TAP Advantage: To do this, they chose the Alaant talent acquisition partnership program. In this case, based on their needs we provided the client with 150 hours of recruiting support and served as their central recruiting function. We worked directly with their hiring managers to screen potential candidates. The client also took advantage of our state-of-the-art recruitment technology capabilities to assist them with candidate outreach.

As a result, we were able to help them achieve their goals, including:

  • Filling 8 of 10 openings with highly qualified talent during our 150-hour engagement
  • Saving the client 55% in recruitment costs as compared to the traditional contingent staffing model

With Alaant’s ability to get creative and truly understand our client and their needs, we were able to create a pricing model and strategy that helped them attain the desired outcome at a significant savings without compromising quality.

For the Alaant team, the most important part of our relationship is listening to our client and evolving with their ever-changing recruitment needs.
