Let us be your partner.
Updated: Dec 1, 2020
Let's face it, one of the most challenging roles in an organization is that of the HR Professional. HR Professionals juggle the balance between creating synergy in the workforce, implementing the objectives of the company's strategic plan, overseeing compliance in the hiring process, interviewing/hiring of new employees, and managing the relationships between management and the workforce. Each and every decision made by a HR Professional impacts the organization, and ultimately contributes to cultural design and overall organizational intelligence. Finding qualified candidates is not enough! Rather, finding candidates who possess the needed skills to perform their assigned duties and who have the ability to fit within the culture of the organization are higher aims of the HR process.
As an entrepreneur, CEO and Founder who has owned and operated organizations for over 25 years, I get it! I've hired thousands of individuals in my career and admit most decisions were right choices; but, others left me asking - "What could I have done better to avoid this situation?". Empathy for the role of HR Professionals is a key influence in the design of the staffing solutions value proposition at The Osborn Group, LLC; and, that empathy is a core foundation for how our services are developed, offered and delivered to accomplish our motto "Expect Exceptional Experiences Every Time!™". Discussions regarding culture, organizational intelligence, strategic goals of the HR function and "ideal candidate" profiles are part of the collective conversations you will hear when we engage with our clients.
"Solutions are not solutions if they do not accomplish the goal. Fads, gimmicks, and useless information cannot replace the fundamentals of what serving a client means, listening to their needs, and delivering results that contribute to their success. HR Professionals benefit when strategic alliances are forged on integrity, trust and authenticity. Serving HR professionals is about empowering their efforts and facilitating exceptional experiences. "
The staffing services value proposition at The Osborn Group, LLC focuses on four core elements to empower HR Professionals and their departments to accomplish their objectives and to specifically reduce the often frustrating and cumbersome perceptions commonly associated with the staffing industry:
1. Listening to your needs: Our focus is on listening to your needs and crafting staffing solutions that accomplish your goals. Being flexible, responsive and resourceful remains core to how we serve our clients. Our engagement process includes conversations about your culture, your goals, your objectives, your staffing needs, your ideal candidate profile and your preferred vetting processes. How we work is defined by the guidance and purposes outlined in the engagement interview. Our abilities include tailoring assessments to identify ideal candidates, screening references to obtain third-party feedback, video interviewing, scoring talent (using our customized proprietary system) to assure only top talent is presented, completing background or drug screening tests, and diving into cultural considerations to assess whether a candidate will fit into the workforce. A minimum of 3-5 candidates for each job role will be presented in a custom MPC (Most Placeable Candidate) presentation within the time deadlines you define. The presentation includes a comprehensive candidate overview, detailed candidate information, current resume, assessment results, third-party feedback notes, candidate scoring results and links to video interviews (if utilized). Each presentation is uniquely crafted by the instructions our engagement process identified and the areas of focus that are important to you.
2. Cost - effective solutions: Controlling costs in the hiring process is just as important as finding the right candidate who fits into the organization. Managing budgets, reducing costs associated with turnover, and reducing onboarding costs are part of the fiscal responsibilities HR Professionals are entrusted to oversee. Our fee schedule accomplishes those objectives and are very competitive to industry averages. The use of advanced sourcing technologies, our robust "mega-candidate" database (with over 4 million resumes), and our strategic alliance with partner agencies across the country in all 50 states empowers us to access talent quickly and be more cost effective than many of our competitors. In addition, our partnership with clients can streamline onboarding tasks, reduce costs to hire and facilitate better choices leading to reduction in turnover. We further contribute to the success of an organization's newly hired employee across the first 60 - 90 by offering certain guarantees and support for and to our placements.
