When do companies typically call Flexible Resources?
There are generally four trigger points:
- Immediate need — The company has a permanent position that needs filling, but is having difficulty finding someone with the exact skill set. Flexible Resources is able to broaden the candidate pool to include top-tier professionals with greater depth and breadth of experience who are willing to work within budget to obtain a flexible work arrangement.
- Project — There are many reasons a project or interim hire makes sense: maternity leave, back filling a position while looking for permanent full-time hire, to staff-up during a busy or seasonal work cycle, to handle a new product introduction, or to manage a consulting assignment.
- Planning Ahead — A long-term employee requests the need to cut back on her hours – perhaps she is approaching retirement, welcoming a new child, or caring for an ailing relative. To retain that valued employee, a company will call us to explore flexible work arrangements, such as a job-share, telecommuting, or flextime arrangement.
- Education — You don’t need to have a specific job opening to call Flexible Resources. Often, companies meet with us to gain general knowledge about flexible work arrangements and how they can benefit their company. We welcome the opportunity to talk with your hiring managers about the range of options and the pool of exceptional talent that we represent.
