Business Case - Sentiance
"Strand Associates Consulting only proposes a candidate when they are convinced about the match."
- Respect & correct
"Candidates are not copy-pasted. They are approached with respect."
"Excite a candidate and represent our brand on the market: two birds, one stone!"
- On the same page
"No quick wins for the sake of quick wins. The strategy is in line with our vision."
"Strand Associates Consulting was the only partner who was committed for the long term."
"The people we need are hardly ever looking for a job. Strand understands our company culture and "promotes" our employer brand in the market. Correct and with respect for the candidate."
Wanted: Top-notch, widely employable data scientists
Frank Verbist: "Most of our employees are software engineers or data scientists. They are extremely skilled within their domain. Moreover, they act very hands-on in our start-up environment, as they should be. Our computer scientists need to have a strong awareness about economic reality. It is a big challenge to speak the doctor's language in the morning and engage in a conversation with a mobility manager in the afternoon!"
Searched for & found: recruiter who speaks our language
Frank Verbist: "We don't have the time nor the energy to select the three strongest candidates out of 400 resumes. As our own sources dry up, we need to collaborate with specialists who are more efficient and effective, willing to learn to speak our language and make an effort in understanding our company culture. Strand was the only partner willing to engage in a continuous, long-term search for new colleagues. Speed is key, but no quick wins for the sake of quick wins; an attitude that fits our vision."
Why does Strand succeed?
Frank Verbist: "If Strand is not convinced about the match, they won't try pushing us to hire him/her. Not finding the right profile in time is a risk in their business, but they play the game fair. Our contact at Strand does whatever it takes to keep the inflow of candidates at a satisfactory level. After all, our growth depends on it! The people we need are hardly ever looking for a job. Strand understands our company culture and "promotes" our employer brand in the market. Correct and with respect for the candidate."
