What a Talent Partner Can Help You With
Finding and Signing Senior Key Hires
Getting the right people for managerial positions is one of the most crucial success factors, and perhaps especially so in the highly specialized and fast-moving tech industry. A Talent Partner will search out the most relevant candidates and help you close the best deals. By looking beyond your geographical area, a Talent Partner can help you both find better candidates, and help you increase diversity, which has potential to transform your workplace for the better.
Filling Specialist Roles
It's not just senior management roles that can be challenging to fill; specialist roles can be equally tricky and are also business-critical. Right now, the most sought-after roles include are data scientists, cyber security experts and machine learning specialists. A Talent Partner has the channels for finding your specialists, whether that's onsite or you're open to remote employees.
Setting Up Nearshore and Offshore Teams
Tech staff is available worldwide, and sometimes it's beneficial to set up whole, or parts of, teams remotely. Often, there are differences in costs that make this an attractive option, but the supply of skilled workers is also distributed all over the globe. This means that a global mindset will drastically increase the candidate pool and improve your chances of quickly finding the right people for your different projects. While off-shore teams can be located on the other side of the world, near-shore means the team is usually in a time zone close to yours. What works best depends on your needs and processes in each specific project.
Each Company Is Unique And Has Unique Needs
The challenges and needs of tech companies differ, and so do the best solutions. With an experienced Talent Partner, your company gets access to a wide array of different approaches and can choose to implement different strategies depending on your requirements.
It's not uncommon that the same company wants some roles onsite, some remote, and set up some functionalities and teams off-shore. However, this adds complexity to your organization, which is where a Talent Partner can step in and make the processes smooth, safe, and efficient.
