Employers

Many Employers have a generally poor view of those engaged in the business of recruitment, due in large part to the belief that agencies just throw resumes at them, hoping one catches the client’s eye and begins the process of interviewing and eventually hiring the candidate. Then billing for what Employers feel is an easy job and not deserving of the high fee rates charged by Agencies. There certainly are those recruitment firms that would fit very comfortably within that description. As the Latin phrase goes “Caveat emptor”, Let the Buyer Beware! Not all Recruitment Agencies fall into that category, just as not all companies are only out for themselves and their suppliers need to be wary.

The recruitment industry had remained, for many years, a staid, dusty and archaic business model, that is until in the late 1980s when Vendor Managed Service (VMS) began to enter the picture. It brought with it a new approach to the controlled sourcing, presenting, on-boarding, tracking and billing associated with contract workers, primarily in the Information Technology sector. However, this potentially solved only one portion of the recruitment industry’s many problems, therefore its appeal was limited by its own shortcomings. There are certainly many more problems the VMS world has not been able to overcome for the good of the clientele they serve.

We all have entered the age of IoT, the Internet of Things, bringing formidable reach to everyone with a computer, a little knowledge of how it works for their purposes, and they are now all masters of their own destinies. Not quite! As it applies to the sourcing of good strong candidates, it still requires a great deal of work in completing that process.
