As I am coming up on my one year mark with Celebrity Staff, I cannot believe how much I have learned in this position. Also, I cannot believe how much more there is to learn! It is terrifying and exciting to know that I am in a business where things can change at a moment’s notice (whether we like it or not). Working with clients in a variety of industries, it is safe to say that I have learned that every day is different. I have learned to be adaptable, think on my feet, and BE READY FOR ANYTHING. If you are working with Celebrity Staff, know that we have a team of people who are always ready to buckle down and work!
As a staffing firm, Celebrity Staff does not want to be known as a temp office, just another staffing service, or “one of you guys”. Our mission states that we want to be the “staffing provider and employer of choice by helping people and companies achieve their goals,” and we feel very strongly about this. I am sure that as a business owner or hiring manager you get more than your fair share of cold calls, emails, and pop-ins. I can also assure you we aren’t doing this to waste your time. We are doing this to help YOU and to help some extraordinary candidates in our community. Here are some of our main objectives when it comes to partnering with you.
We want a partnership:
We WANT to help you. We would like this to be an easy process as hiring someone new to your team can be stressful. Our goal is your goal, which is getting the most qualified and interested person in for your position. We might ask you 10 or 20 questions up front and you might not have the time to answer the questions we have, but then how am I going to get you that TOP TALENT? Give us a time that works with your schedule so we can get all the information we need to move forward with the opening you have on your team. It may seem like a lot, but making sure we have all of the information up front will allow us to weed through the candidate pool for YOU so we can present our top two or three candidates. What an easy thing for you!
We are not a resume service:
As I wrote in my last blog, you can find resumes on your own and post ads everywhere. What we provide is beyond the surface. We will tell you everything you would like to know about a candidate on the front end so you are not wasting your time filtering resumes, playing phone tag, and maybe getting a few decent candidates in for interviews after going through 50 to 100 resumes.
We want to make you happy:
We are not in this for ourselves. We are here to partner and build a relationship with you! We want to be a valued resource for your company in the long run. Even if you used Celebrity Staff for a one time, niche, “purple unicorn” direct hire position, we want to be your first call when you have an immediate need for a receptionist or have a two-week data entry assignment available. We will be there for you and we want to make you happy! Back to the resume service side…we want to make you happy by sending two or three candidates to get the position filled as quickly as possible. It is not about how many great candidates we have. It is about the top candidates we have for YOU and your position.
We work as a team:
Celebrity Staff is very team oriented when it comes to our business. As a client, doesn’t it feel good to know that you are not only getting the opportunity to hear about my candidates but also my colleagues’ candidates? This means that you will have more of an opportunity to see the best of the best. Everyone has your best interest in mind and we all want to help you. That has to feel pretty good, right?
We want you to ask questions, too:
Are you uncertain as to how we work, what we do, why we do what we do? Ask us! We want to be as open and transparent as possible. Again, partnership is a two way street. If you feel that there is something lacking on my end, tell me! If you have hesitations about a candidate, ask me! If you need help making a decision between two candidates, I will be there as a consultant for you.
Overall, what I mean by all of this is we are a full-service staffing firm that wants what is best for you and YOU come first. We want to build a relationship with you and your team, and we appreciate and WANT you to be transparent with us. The market is tight – who knows what is to come? One of my favorite quotes when thinking about partnerships is: “just one great partnership with the right person can have an incredible impact on your business success”. One thing that you can be certain of is Celebrity Staff will be there for you, will work with you, and will PARTNER with you to help better your business.
