Our Process

 

An important element to your search is our thorough understanding of your operation, specifics of the position, as well as the environment and management style in the department. This is accomplished through in-depth initial consultations as well as ongoing and regular client communication.

Our approach is to partner with our clients to determine the exact qualifications and skills needed in a prospect. We interview candidates extensively to ensure their experience and needs are appropriate for the job and culture offered by our client.

Our recruiting is conducted through referrals, networking with professionals in the disciplines and businesses where qualified candidates are most likely to be and other sourcing techniques. We do not rely on unsolicited resume flow or blind ads.

12 Stones Staffing & Consulting uses a talent acquisition process to match proven professionals with organizations nationwide. Through years of experience in talent acquisition and workforce solutions, 12 Stones Staffing & Consulting excels in delivering high performance results through our disciplined, proven methodologies.

1. Identification
The candidate identification process begins with a complete understanding of the client’s distinctive requirements. Our trained Account Managers and Recruiters are all seasoned staffing professionals. We take on the role of an extension to our client’s organization, ensuring that all professionals are thoroughly screened and only the best and brightest professionals are selected to join our team.

2. Qualification
Our staffing team is extremely knowledgeable and highly qualified, with over 15+ years of experience. We conduct complex screenings of all candidates including skill level, salary requirements, availability, geographic location, and commute. Our hiring process is rigorous and each candidate is interviewed by the recruiter to access their skills.

3. Verification
Our recruiting professionals require candidates to submit three business references at the time of the qualification interview. A minimum of one professional reference is contacted prior to submitting the candidate. The remaining references are contacted post qualifying interview to address any “red flags” which may have emerged through the interview process or confirm skills that didn’t convey on the resume.

4. Preparation
12 Stones Staffing & Consulting takes job preparation to the next level. The Account Manager works hand-in-hand with the recruiter and client to make sure each consultant has a true understanding of what will be required of them.

5. Making the Right Match
12 Stones Staffing & Consulting has an extensive service-delivery model in place to ensure quality and timely execution of our services. It starts with a thorough job order. Our account managers prefer to speak to several people in a department in order to gain the in depth perspective needed to make the right match. Years of experience have taught us that it takes more than matching the right skill set to achieve long-term success. By developing trusting relationships with both our clients and consultants, we advocate for both, to help make the project start and finish smoothly. The designated Account Manager engages our experienced recruiting team to fill the open need with the most qualified professional. It is our responsibility to assist our clients in making the right hiring decisions and our candidates in making the right career choices.

6. Managing the project
Our job is not done after connecting top-notch professionals with world-class client organizations. 12 Stones Staffing & Consulting continuously follows up with all parties to make sure the project is going well. We believe in establishing long-lasting relationships and see opportunities for career coaching as a way to build those relationships. We truly form partnerships with our clients, consultants, and candidates because in the constantly changing landscape of hiring the right people – everyone needs a trusted ally.
