The Human Touch
Human interaction is complex. No matter how much we try to automate the interaction process, we find that clear communication comes down to human-to-human interaction. That is why we are so focused on building long-term relationships with our clients. The only way to build trust is to be consistent and honest in our behavior over the long haul.
This may seem obvious. But, in the highly competitive business of IT and general recruitment, consistent, honest behavior is the cornerstone to building relationships that are mutually beneficial to all.
At SOAL, our approach is to supply the human touch wherever possible. That means we don’t mine job boards for resumes. Instead, we work from referrals and other electronic means. We interview our candidates and clients in person. We make sure we have a clear picture of what everyone wants and then we make the match. Information is key to the success of our business. The more we have the better we are.
That also means that clients save money and candidates stay longer in their placements. When clients make the first hire right the cost savings are significant. That is why we spend so much time making sure we know exactly what the assignment requirements are going to be. Without this data, we could miss the mark.
Since we have been in your shoes as consultants, contractors, and clients we understand how important it is to have trusting relationships that help advance business objectives and careers. We prefer to work this way because we know it works for all of us.
