Business Case - Awingu
"As a start-up, we don't have money nor time to spare. Strand gets that!"
"Our employees need to be entrepreneurial. I expect the same of my recruitment partner."
- Quality wins
"I prefer three valuable candidates over twenty mediocre ones."
"Doing face-to-face business in a transparent way nurtures trust. Plus it creates the right expectations for all parties involved."
- Perceptive & insightful
"Insight in the needs and doubts of candidates raises our chances of winning over top talent."
"You need a recruitment partner who is 'on top' of the process and who delivers. Strand does just that. It is no coincidence that the first candidate for a second vacancy was a perfect match once again."
Christof Debaes - VP Operations Awingu
Wanted: flexible, high-tech engineers
Christof Debaes: "Software engineers who master both Linux and Windows are rare. On top, they must be flexible enough to adapt to the 'fickle' growth path of a start-up. A today can evolve towards B tomorrow. We strongly value a sense of initiative and an entrepreneurial mindset both in-house as well as on-site during the integration of a solution at one of our clients. Every time I meet a candidate I wonder: 'Is this a person I would send to my client?'"
Searched for & found: exceptional quality
Christof Debaes: "The very first professional Strand proposed started at one of our clients on his first day on the job. He was a strong candidate; found, screened and hired in only a couple of weeks. Without having to go through 100+ resumes! As an employer, you are looking for the best of the best. You need a recruitment partner who is 'on top' of the process and who delivers. Strand does just that. It is no coincidence that the first candidate for a second vacancy was a perfect match once again."
Why does Strand succeed?
Christof Debaes: "They play the game correct for both the client and the candidate. Our Strand consultant informed us about the needs and doubts of the candidate so we could anticipate accordingly during the interviews. Moreover, we were only provided with talent that fits the required hard and soft skills. On top, Strand believes 200% in the profiles it provides. Anything less is a no go. As a start-up in full expansion, we don't have time nor money to spare. Every investment needs to be spot on. Strand Associates Consulting gets that!"
