3 Best Practices When Hiring Consultants

No matter the reason for expanding your workforce, we’ve learned that without these three steps, your hiring plans are doomed to completely avoidable failure.

1. Act FAST, don’t slow down the process.

It’s critical that you arm yourself with the information and resources you need in order to quickly pull the trigger the moment you find the right fit for your team. Typically, a desirable consultant will only be on the market for the span of a few days to weeks.

2. Culture cannot be an afterthought.

Consultants are only going to be with your company for a few months, so why concern yourself with their cultural initiation? This thinking can quickly sabotage an otherwise excellent hire. Even a short welcome email can make a consultant feel as though they are part of the team.

3. Don’t waste time + money with on-boarding paperwork, background checks, and reference calls.

Your team is spread thin as it is – that’s WHY you’re bringing on a consultant in the first place. Consultant-specialized recruiters do all of the heavy lifting for you, so that you can unburden your team and hit the ground running with your new hire.

Our sole purpose is to take the guess work out of the hiring process by identifying, engaging, and vetting talented professionals so you don’t have to. Message us at hello@provenrecruiting.com to learn how we can streamline your hiring process.
