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.
eQuidPro, recognizes all the above-mentioned issues as well as many more that plague the industry and interaction between Employers & Agencies. eQuidPro has built a process that does not ignore the vital relationship between Employer and Agency, in fact eQuidPro believes this working relationship is the strongest bond by which the best quality candidates can be sourced and presented to the potential Employer with due diligence having been an active partner in the joining of these two vital entities.
eQuidPro will guarantee improved process, lower costs and superior quality candidate resumes. It is in the Employer’s hands how many agencies they wish to have work on their job order and how many resumes they wish to receive from each. Only Agencies having a strong track record of sourcing top notch candidates, within a specific industry segment, will even see the job postings; therefore, only Agencies truly experienced in the industry segment and geographic area will be able to bid on those job postings.

How does eQuidPro work for employers?
The search for your perfect candidate begins: The moment your jobs go live on eQuidPro, the bidding process begins by the agencies, (Agencies will have a specified time for the bidding process to be open) Again you select how long the bidding process will remain open to give many agencies time to post a bid. Agencies are selected by responsiveness and bidding fee amount; the most competitive bidders win the selection process.
Once agencies have been selected by our DARP system, agencies will be identified as being able to work that job and the employer will begin to see resumes from the agencies.
Employers can review incoming candidates straight from the eQuidPro system, or in your inbox, the system will send you resumes as they are submitted by agencies. You will have the ability to comment, reject, interview and hire candidate through our DARP system.
