Executive Brief: VP HR/CPO (Chief People Officer)
No matter your title, you understand that great people make
all the difference in achieving your success
The key to building a great company, great people…right? At Accolo, we have a fundamental belief that any great product, technology, service or even discontinuous innovation will not create a great company without the right people. That is why we created Accolo, to transform the way our customers identified, recruited and hired their most critical asset, high performance employees. However, this is easier said than done.
We started by collecting hiring performance intelligence and performance metrics across 450+ companies and 20,000 successful hires and making it available to our customer base via the Accolo Hiring Performance Knowledgebase. Then, we developed and patented our Hiring Performance Software which was developed upon 10 Universal Hiring Best Practices to enable every customer to implement a more consistent, predictable and transparent recruit to hire process. Finally, we have developed a network of trained and certified Accolo Hiring Consultants (not just recruiters) that provides our client on demand recruiting capacity as their hiring needs fluctuate throughout the year.
As the leader of your company, what is more important than having great people represent your brand everyday? Maybe nothing, but what about the ability to have every candidate that applies for a job become a brand advocate. The Accolo process includes the fundamental tenant that every candidate should be treated with courtesy and respect as they are more than a potential employee, they may be a potential customer, share holder and even a referral source for that next “A Player” that you hire.
Like any company with a good marketing department, we have gathered a lot of data from our customers and they consistently articulate the following benefits they are receiving from Accolo including a material reduction in cost per hire, increased quality of candidates and compressing the recruit to hire cycle time leading in more productivity for every job requisition approved. However, for the Chief Executive Officer, we think there is an even more strategic benefit.
More important, you can eliminate the fixed costs associated with an internal recruiting function while materially increasing the effectiveness and efficiency of every new hire while increasing your employment brand one candidate at a time. How many emails do you receive from candidates that were turned down for a job, but enthusiastically state they would recommend your company to all of their friends and family…we receive hundreds of these emails every month from candidates who did not receive the job!
Human capital is not the sole responsibility of human resources, it is a common element across every function of great companies. Accolo has one core competency “Hiring Performance Management”, we invite you to come learn for yourself how we can impact your company brand and performance, one candidate and one hire at a time.
