Choosing an information technology or IT staffing firm is an important task for many business owners. Faced with a critical project and lacking specific skills, you turn to an IT staffing firm to find the perfect consultant or interim leader to head up the project.
But how do you find a great IT staffing firm? What’s the secret to forging a long-lasting partnership with an IT staffing firm that understands both your needs and the skills needed for the open position at your company?
The Qualities of Your Perfect IT Staffing Firm
- Culture: What’s their corporate culture like – and what’s yours? If your company is laid back and they’re frenetic with energy, it may not be a suitable match. At BCforward, we say we work with companies who value values. In other words, we look for companies to partner with who share our commitment to treating people well, to offering high value, and to listening to others, among certain qualities. Understand what suits your company and then look for similar qualities in the IT staffing firm you consider for your partner.
- Size: A large staffing firm may look attractive on the surface until you can’t get hold of your recruiter in a pinch. A smaller firm may be a better match. Smaller firms can provide the personal attention that makes all the difference on an important project.
- Industries: Knowledge of the specific industries your company serves or works in can be a big plus. An IT staffing firm that truly understands the retail, manufacturing, or other industries can be an asset and help you find staff quickly.
So what does your dream IT staffing firm look like? We hope it looks like BCforward! We welcome calls from companies seeking an IT staffing firm to fill interim vacancies and consulting positions.
