Hiring the right supply chain recruitment company is one of the most important steps you will take in your future success. When you hire the right supply chain recruitment company, you select an organization that can help you find the right talent for your positions, saving you time, money and effort. The right choice will almost pay for itself in new talent that can help you get to the next level.
So how can you select the right supply chain recruitment company? Look for these factors:
Take a look at the results a supply chain recruitment company is getting. How long have they been in business? What are the supply chain positions they have filled in the last few months? Are these positions similar to yours? Ask for a reference list. A good company can show you proof of results obtained.
Look for a supply chain recruitment company with experience not only in the supply chain and logistics discipline, but also in your specific discipline. A candidate for a food and beverage position is very different than the talent needed in the pharmaceutical industry. Make sure your supply chain recruiter can tap into the active and passive candidates in your target area.
If you need executive-level candidates, you may not care whether a supply chain recruitment company has experience with part-time or contingency staffing. Yet it is a good idea to look for a company with a variety of recruiting services. A company such as Optimum Supply Chain Recruiters is aggressive in pursuing talent because they offer a range of services and need to be able to present the best candidates always. A company with multiple services may also be more likely to help you with custom solutions.
Make sure any company you may work with has solutions for uncovering a diverse range of candidates. Optimum Supply Chain Recruiters, for example, actively seeks out candidates through networking and recruiting, resulting in a database of passive and active candidates.
Be sure to ask any supply chain recruitment company you work with how they find candidates for your positions and what role the company will play in the hiring process. At Optimum Supply Chain Recruiters, we work with a large database of existing candidates, and we actively recruit. We also partner with you in the recruiting process, leaving you firmly in the driver’s seat.
