Master Strategic Partnerships to Achieve Rare Results

By: Craig Jackman, President & Co-Founder

Finding the best talent in the market today seems like a constant battle, frustrating and periodically hopeless. You are crunched for time, dealing with a talent shortage and fierce competition. You interview, identify that great fit, only to find out that the candidate took another job!  

Back to the drawing board.

Most employers are not lucky enough to have the reputation and brand like Google, Apple, Facebook and Amazon, their reputation precedes them. But companies today, big and small, that are finding, engaging, securing, and retaining the best talent all have the same thing in common - they are taking a measured and active approach to finding talent.  

As the old adage goes, if you don’t have time to do it right the first time, when are you going to find time to do it over? Employers who are laser focused on the process, and working closely with their staffing partners consistently win the best talent. And clients who are willing to narrow their focus to 1-3 partners, increase the probabilities of success for everyone involved. Paragon calls this approach Dedicated Services.  

The measure of success in hiring is the interview-to-hire ratio and we have been successful in helping our engaged customers reduce their candidate-close ratio from an industry average of 4:1 to 2.5:1. That’s a 37.5% improvement in time, energy and money – all while winning their desired talent.

As Dr. John Townsend shared in his article, Why Time is Your Most Valuable Currency, we all have an equal number of hours given to us, but the highly successful understand how important it is to manage their time.  

Time is your most valuable resource and it's today's ultimate currency. Stop wasting your time reviewing too many resumes, sitting in too many interviews, just to lose your preferred candidate and start the process all over again.

We’ve developed a model that, if followed, will save you time and money. Don’t just take our word for it, let us show you how.
