The client, a small health care company, needed a Chief Financial Officer and they wanted top talent: an MBA with a CPA license and health care experience. The budget was tight.
Why pay for all that face-time? We had exactly the right candidate for this position who wanted to work part-time. We recommended that the company bring her on-board three days a week, plus another day working from home. The company gets everything they need and saves about 40% in salary. The candidate gets exactly what she wants – a permanent part-time position at a professional level, and the ability to telecommute. That was five years ago and our candidate is still with the company.
