Our Hiring Standards
We concentrate on your position and finding the candidate that meets your qualifications and culture. We invest heavily in both the recruiting and screening process so you know the candidates you meet with are the best available and have been thoroughly vetted by our team of professionals. While we may have the candidate that is the right fit in our database already we will always recruit for each position to ensure you get the best fit for your company.
Leverage Our Recruitment Network
There are a lot of recruiting tools available but many are not worth the cost. Recruitment and staffing agencies invest in recruiting and finding the right candidates for each position so you don’t have to. In addition to our highly optimized job board, we analyze each position to make sure that it is properly advertised using the best channels for the market and the position. Not all job boards are the same and many don’t reach candidates in our area. At O2 we understand that each position needs to be handled and optimized individually to reach the highest number of qualified candidates. We won’t waste your time or money on job boards that don’t reach candidates in this market.
Find the Most Qualified High-Level Employee
Looking for higher-level candidates? We specialize in that too! At O2, we have a successful track record of placing management and C-level positions within top local companies. High-level candidates and passive job seekers are the most difficult to find and recruit. Whether through our recruitment channels or through our techniques of seeking out qualified candidates, we have been able to fill some of the hardest positions to find for North State employers. It can be a difficult and time-consuming process that you don’t have the hours to spend on. Let the experts at O2 do the work for you. You meet with pre-screened, qualified candidates, and choose who is right for your company.
Review the Most Eligible Candidates
We don’t send any candidates to you that we haven’t already met with in person. When you meet with a candidate from O2, you can be confident in knowing that we have already vetted the candidate and determined that they are qualified for your company and position. This process includes online screening, interviews, testing and more. We don’t just screen each candidate, we screen them specifically for your company so you know they have met the qualifications you have in advance.
Our Personalized Services
Staffing is the most important part of your business and O2 we take the trust you put in us seriously. We become an extension of your business, your recruiting division, and take the time to learn who you are, what you do and what type of candidate would be a fit for your business and culture. No two companies are the same and while you may be offering a similar position as someone else, your culture and team are unlike any other company. Our goal is to know what will make not only a great fit on your team but which type of candidates you need to maximize your retention and productivity.
We Cater to Small Businesses
For small businesses the world of recruiting can be especially difficult and overwhelming. It can feel virtually impossible to stay up on what you need to do for your own business, let alone the changing trends in the job market. Outsourcing to the experts at O2 will relieve you of that stress, saving you time, energy and money, allowing you to focus on your business.
Your Small Business Can Get Big Benefits
Save time – The recruiting process is time-consuming and it can occupy your entire day if you let it. From finding the right job board to writing the right ad, sorting through resumes, interviewing and pre-screening candidates, recruiting is a full-time job and then some. You didn’t go into business to spend all your time looking for employees and you shouldn’t have to.
Save money – The recruiting process can be expensive, especially if you aren’t sure what you are doing. Knowing where to place ads and how much to pay for them to be seen is an important part of the process. You can waste a lot of time and money putting ads in the wrong spots and not seeing the results you need.
Your Small Business Can Get Big Benefits
Save energy – Recruiting and hiring can be exhausting and even more so if you aren’t sure you’re doing it right. Whether you are stressing about what you are allowed to put in an ad or which interview questions to ask, the time spent can drain you of much-needed energy that is better spent growing your business and investing in your team.
No commitment – When you are running a small business or just getting started bringing on employees it can be hard to know what you need in a candidate and position. Using a recruiting and staffing agency allows you to make sure the candidate and the position are the right fit for your business before you take the leap and commit. It may turn out that you need more hours than you anticipated and you need to add more employees or you may have overestimated and need to reduce your overall payroll. Either way, O2 can help you with that process and help you navigate the process while keeping your costs to a minimum.
How We Work
We may already have great candidates in our database for your position but we will still advertise for every position. There are new candidates on the market every day and we understand the value of diligent recruiting. We invest heavily in social media and online marketing, as well as traditional recruiting, and stay up-to-date on the latest hiring trends. Candidates, the market and technology are always changing which means that your recruiting and hiring processes need to be too. It is critical that your recruiting is always cutting edge and this can be overwhelming when it is just one more thing you have to do in addition to running your business. At O2 this is all we do and we prioritize making sure we are maximizing all available resources for your company.
We Run Through A Short List With You
We may have met with 50 candidates for your position but we are only going to send you the top candidates from those applications. You will only have to take the time to meet with the very best options for your business and we will review each candidate with you before and after the interviews. Our goal is to save you time, which saves you money. Because not every candidate that applies to your position is a good fit you shouldn’t have to spend your time meeting with every candidate. Our job is to narrow it down to the top candidates for your position and have you meet with the best options available. Sometimes this means interviewing just three to five and sometimes it means interviewing one.
We Facilitate The Interview Process
You don’t need to spend your time coordinating schedules and logistics. We take care of the busy work for you. We prescreen the candidates, we send you the best, you decide who you want to meet with and we do the rest. This means coordinating interviews, following up with you, scheduling any more meetings necessary, and getting you the information you need so you can make the best decision for your business. You tell us what you need and we take care of the rest.
We Counsel You On Which Candidate May Fit Best
Debriefing after your interviews with experts in the field gives you additional valuable resources for helping you determine which candidates will be the best fit for your business. There may be things about the candidate that concern you or that you need clarification on. Having a second opinion and expert sounding board can be invaluable to determining the right fit and helping you make a decision you are confident in.
We Do All The Heavy Lifting
Staffing for a position takes time, effort and diligence to sort through resumes and meet with candidates just to determine who you should interview for the position. In addition to this, there are additional steps to make sure the candidates are the most qualified for the position and will be the right culture fit for your business. O2 takes care of all of that for you so you know when you are interviewing you are meeting with the best candidates available for what you need.
Recruiting and pre-screening candidates is a developed skill, one that most employers don’t have the time to spend on because they need to be focused on growing their business. Spend your valuable time where it is needed most and let O2 take care of the time consuming and stressful recruiting process for you.
