Q:

 

Why is this process better than

using a recruiting company?

 

One of the biggest advantages is the transparency 360WF offers.  When you use a recruiting company, you have no access to the resumes rejected by the recruiter.  As a client, you only see the candidates THEY decide are best for you.  With 360WF, you have complete transparency from day one with access to every candidate who applies and all the information associated with the process.  By the time you select candidates for face-to-face in-house interviews, you have seen resumes, associated notes and a 30 minute screening interview based on YOUR interviewing instrument.

Q:

 

How cost efficient is using 360WF verses a Headhunter and/or Recruiting firm?

 

Headhunters, Retained Search and Recruiting firms all charge 20% - 30% of the selected candidate’s annual base pay.  Obviously, this can be extremely expensive per placement.  The cost model for 360WF is very innovative and designed to allow the employer to have more control over the cost of placements.  The cost impact using 360WF is a fraction of the cost of using traditional recruiting companies and is targeted to finding the BEST candidate.  Employers pay for all their own advertising and postings, as a result, they suffer no mark-up charges by using outside recruiting vendors to do this for them.  Plus, employers never again have to pay high travel fees associated with bringing in candidates sight unseen – NO MORE SURPRISES.  For national job postings, most Headhunters and Recruiting firms NEVER meet potential candidates face-to-face before they are submitted to the employer.  This often is a huge surprise and disappointment for the employer and many times a costly mistake.

Q:

 

What kind of track record does 360WF have actually staffing positions?

 

One of the ways 360WF measures success is by the metrics it achieves with each job.  360WF celebrates ‘best in class’ metrics.  To-date, the Time-to-Fill is <45 days with a 75% success rate meaning 3 out of 5 candidates submitted for face-to-face interviews were made offers.

 

Q:

 

Can’t our existing HR team just do a webcam interview?  Why use 360WF?

Q:

 

How does 360WF become an extension of an Employers HR team versus just a ‘vendor’?

 

As an employer, you are a pivotal part of the selection process in assigning your 360WF HR partner.  360WF understands the value in the relationship between you and the person who is going to provide your service.  Collaboration is our primary goal and we are wise enough know it is in the strength of that relationship that will determine our ability to provide you the best candidates – which is our ultimate goal.  There is complete transparency throughout the 360WF process and you have access to every resume, every piece of information 24 hours/day.  There are no ‘secret’ notes taken or conversations of which employers are not a part.  We provide the vehicle and the path – YOU drive the vehicle.

Q:

 

I have to gear up 30 new positions in 45 days, what is 360WF’s capacity and how fast can they accomplish this task?

Q:

 

If people are not equipped with a Webcam, are they eliminated from the candidate pool?

 

Technology is an expectation and is the most basic of job search initiatives in today’s environment.  There are few companies who consider candidates who are unable to electronically send a resume.  Candidates, who do not have webcam capability, often do not realize they can purchase one for around $20.00.  Skype is downloaded for free. Plus, for those who don’t have a webcam, we provide a link where they can overnight a webcam for as little as $20.00. Companies utilizing this technology will, most likely, require candidates who are computer/technologically savvy.

Q:

 

Are people who are uncomfortable in front of the camera, as well as uncomfortable being recorded, given the same opportunity for hire?

 

Our biggest asset is our staff. 

 

We have over 300 Human Resource professionals representing 55+ industries at our fingertips.  We do not hire ‘newbies’; as a result, our staff has deep expertise and strong experience.  As the process begins and they partner with our clients, they are trained in bringing out the best in every candidate.  The anxiety level is no higher than if they were sitting in the company’s conference room.  In fact, candidates are often more comfortable sitting at their computer in the comfort of their own home.  Meet our 360workforce.net coaches at http://360workforce.net.
