Reinventing Recruiting

How we are doing things differently and why it saves you big on your staffing costs.

Movanti is bringing you a new cost effective way of dealing with recruiting and hiring, whether that is seasonal or highly skilled permanent positions. We do not believe traditional temporary and headhunting fees have exceeded their value, with that in mind we have created an entirely new way of structuring costs for recruiting services. We run our recruiting services as if we are your internal HR department rather than a staffing firm. This means that you pay us hourly for the time it takes us to pre-screen and phone interview applicants and send them over to you for a face to face interview, rather than paying an ongoing fee (usually about 20%-40%) out of the employee’s pay rate.
If you work with us to hire someone in the $10-$15 range, it will generally cost $300-$400. For permanent salary positions, the cost ends up at about 7% of a person’s salary, but we always cap our fees at 10% of the salary. For example, if you are interested in hiring an accountant at $65,000/annually it will cost about $4,000 to hire them but no more than $6,500. If you went with a traditional staffing firm it would cost between $13,000 and $20,000.
With today’s technology and access to great people, we all know it does not take $20,000 worth of work to find you a great fit!

The process is pretty simple:

1. First

We get a job description and any must haves/or absolutely not’s (e.g. we absolutely don’t want someone who comes from a big business background because they don’t adapt well into our smaller firm, or we have had trouble with people being late in the past and really want to find someone who is focused on being punctual).

2. Then

We post an ad and build an application tailored to your needs (i.e. how important is it to you to be on time to work? Describe the last time you were late to work, what happened and how did you handle it?).

3. Next

We start screening and send the best 4–6 people over to you for face-to-face interviews.

4. Finally

You choose who you like and hire them! (…or we keep looking).
The best part is, if you find more than 1 person you like, you are welcome to hire them too. We are billing you hourly not by the person so you can have as much out of it as you would like. We have had clients who decided to hire 2 applicants out of the group and it did not cost them any extra, because it did not take any extra work …It is just common sense.
