how do you find your accounting and finance talent?

In the course of our almost six decades of experience in the recruiting space, we've had ample time to experiment, iterate and refine our approach to staffing and recruiting — that’s how we’ve arrived at best-in-class.

So like most staffing firms, we’re using the latest technologies, like our robust applicant tracking system (ATS). But unlike most staffing firms, we’re using these technologies in novel ways — typically in combination with or alongside other portals, platforms and point-source solutions — in ways that maximize their value. It’s helped us build an unmatched network of talent from coast to coast, including both active and passive candidates. 

But technology is only a small part of the story. What really differentiates Randstad is the human touch. Our recruiters take the time to get to know you and your business —  where you stand today and where you’re looking to go tomorrow. That’s how we ensure that candidates are the right fit for your company.

in what ways is the hiring process changing today?

Competition for top talent is today at an all-time high, and that means the hiring landscape is in flux. Companies across industries are realizing that they need to embrace new, innovative methods for finding talent — otherwise, they risk getting left behind. The bottom line is that continuing with “business as usual” simply isn’t going to cut it. 

In that context, more and more companies are turning to staffing partners like Randstad for support with their most pressing talent-related pain points.

While you may have handled hiring in-house in the past, the realities of today's talent market call for a new approach. When you partner with us:

  • You'll save time on pre-screening and interviewing processes.

  • By moving more quickly, you’ll reduce the risk of losing top talent to competitors. 

  • We'll leverage our vast network of qualified professionals, along with today's latest sourcing technologies, to find the right candidates — fast. 

If working with a staffing partner isn’t how you've traditionally sourced and hired talent in the past, that fact alone — in the context of ongoing economic disruption — might be a good reason to consider doing so in the future.

Once approval is secured, we'll get started right away. Accelerating the hiring cycle — it’s just one of the ways we’ll help you win in-demand talent.
