Better With…real relationships

Imagine if you will, our own motley crew coming packing into one or two cars to your company. The Bacon group, in the flesh. Baring gifts and a endless amount of enthusiasm….

This year, we have been doing team visits to our clients, especially new clients, so that everyone (from recruiters to sources) gets to meet the company, their hiring managers, and their technical team. We’ve always had a good relationship with our clients, but in the past it was usually through one or two members of our team. We decided to do more team visits as a manifestation one of our fundamental ideas on how we do business: truly working with companies and resources as part of a team to match the best resource with the most fitting position. We are all on the same level and we are all working together towards the same goal. So naturally, we should all know get cozy, right?

It’s important for us to do this for many reasons. Everyone gets to personally see the offices where a resource could potentially work, we get to meet the team, and we can talk candidly to the hiring manager about his/her expectations, managerial style, and the open positions.  Our team is better equipped to more honestly advocate for the company and their team, as well as give a more in-depth description of the job requirements (such as, sing-alongs on Fridays or siestas at 2pm every day). To tell you, the candidate, why you would like working with their team.  Plus, one of our favorite parts of client visits is seeing resources we’ve already placed enjoying their new job!

But we don’t stop there, we like to personally meet our candidates as well. Besides, an excuse to show off our Batter 621 offices, it’s an opportunity for both of us to put a face to to the people who we have been communicating with. Resources can about their skills, their goals, and their lives; where they want to be, what they’re looking for, and how we can help them. Sure, we communicate a lot through phone and email, but there is something different about just getting to hang out with our resources and get to know them. More than once, after a great meeting with a talented person we have gone back to encourage a company meet them as well. With a strong relationship with both candidates and companies, we can be the best matchmakers possible.

It’s a little more effort on our part, but it’s completely worth it for all of us. It’s fulfilling for us to help candidates and companies complete their teams…to help someone find a job and to make someone else’s job easier. We love with we do.
