In business, you are who you hire. We work with our clients offering a tried and tested model to solve your #1 problem – hiring mistakes. This is more imperative with remote hiring becoming the new norm. iResource follows a simple 4-step method for hiring the right people with a 90% success rate. We follow this process when resourcing for ourselves and our clients. We are also more than happy to train your business on these processes if requested.
Digital change is what every corporation goes through at one time or another. Delivery digital change presents every company with the same challenge! You have your core team, managing business as usual, how do you build a team to manage a short term digital change programme without making permanent hires!? Building your team with permanent hires is fine for the duration of your programme, though once you have delivered, how do you maintain that new team without making redundancies?
Hiring contractors is another option, though with the new IR35 regulations about to come into effect, you are then presented with legislation overheads which could introduce unnecessary tax risks.
The prospect of hiring and then firing teams of people is a situation we all would prefer to avoid, so building teams has to be a balanced approach. Having a good mix of permanent resource and flexible resource is key.
Understanding what your resourcing profile is key, what skills do you need and for how long. We can then shape a flexible team for the duration of your programme which you switch on and switch off as and when you require the service. We remove the headache of finding good contractors by shaping your team from our pool of capable professionals. We manage the operational aspect of the resource, whilst you benefit from the delivery expertise.
iResource provides a flexible resourcing solution to support you in your peak demand times of need. We deliver this by ensuring that we have the best of breed team on hand to deliver your programme and are able to manage your peak demands without breaking stride.
To ensure high-quality, we adopt a robust screening and hiring process which quickly identifies those candidates whom are not of the right DNA for your organisation and project demand. We follow a simple 3 step process which is supported by the Method-A hiring approach.
The scorecard is broken down into Mission, Outcomes & Competencies. The Scorecard allows us to fully identify your requirement. Understanding exactly what you need your A Player to achieve in the role. What is their mission? What are their core required competencies, e.g. technical proficiencies and what outcomes will this person need to achieve in order to benefit your business and fulfil the role?
Within the Source part of the Method A, this is how we begin to target and engage with the best possible candidates. This is done through: Referrals – We use referrals through our vast technical network & consultants. Good people know good people. iResource – Our iResource team are constantly building our pool of A Player candidates across DevOps, Development, Data & Testing. Social Media – We keep active on social media platforms, creating relationships and awareness of, LinkedIn, Instagram & Twitter.
The final, important step as part of the Method A process is Select.
