It’s About More Than Filling an Open Seat
At CultureFit, We Believe in Recruiting the Talent and Staffing the Culture
But there’s a significant difference between hiring the best talent and hiring the right talent. At CultureFit, our entire business focuses on this difference, because it’s what makes an impact for our clients. Sometimes, the most experienced candidate might not be the best fit for you and your team. When you partner with CultureFit, we make the hiring process efficient and impactful, while accurately representing who you are to the candidate marketplace.
We’ve spent the past 23 years identifying the best methods for staffing Greater Chicagoland technology professionals that fit the unique culture of our clients. Often, candidates are already available in the local market. Through our staffing services, we’ll help you discover, engage, and hire them more efficiently than ever.
We know that people stay in positions for the culture — not the pay. A strong culture creates an atmosphere and dynamic that employees want to be part of. When they have that connection, these values become the priority. They start having fun at the office. They build stronger, longer-lasting relationships. They develop passion for what they do. And all that leads to a strong performing organization that attracts the right talent and keeps them longer.
When we provide you with candidates for your technology positions, we give you people we’ve evaluated to be the best fit based on their values and their goals — not their experience alone. We look for candidates who know what they want, like longevity and collaboration. In every candidate we review, we’re paying attention to their thoughts on team sizes and office layout as well as their technical fit.
Why Hiring for Culture Fit Matters
IT is difficult to staff because the market is intensely competitive. According to talent acquisition software company TribePad, 2018 saw nearly 6.5 million applications for a little over 167,000 listings on its platform, with 39 applications for every job listed. In tech specifically, there were 53 applications per position. And that’s just an average for one platform. There are multiple other platforms out there, and even more people applying for fewer jobs.
A recent survey by Gartner revealed that “talent shortage” rose to become the top emerging risk that businesses face globally. In the 2018 Harvey Nash/KPMG CIO Survey, it was reported that 48% of CIOs expected a budget increase within the next year, with 47% of those expecting an increase in department headcount. Needless to say, the need for IT is growing, but the talent isn’t there. That’s why it’s more important than ever to ensure the person that gets your open position is the right person.
Our team will help you with permanent, direct-hire placements, contract services, contract-to-hire, and more. We’ve staffed entire start-ups and supported Fortune 250 teams, so no matter your size or stage, we’ll work with you to find stronger candidates. By finding people who fit your culture and want to be part of it, you gain more than skill sets — you ingrain your company with passion and commitment that will reap rewards for your business for the long term. Our goal is to be your trusted staffing partner so our hires make an impact in your company for years to come.
