A social impact recruiting firm located downtown added a new division.
Hire for Hope, at 49 Monroe Center NW, Suite 200, in downtown Grand Rapids, said it created a new recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) division called Outsource.
Ashley Ward, owner and founder of Hire for Hope, said the new division was spurred by soaring unemployment — the highest level since the Great Depression — with millions searching for new jobs.
“Hire for Hope has access to top-notch recruiting platforms, screening processes, candidate assessment tools and a team of dedicated recruiters,” she said. “Through Outsource, they will act as the talent acquisition department, not only by handling all advertisement job postings but also by acting as a representative for the company. If a company’s hiring goes through ebbs and flows, an RPO is especially beneficial because of our low-risk, six- or 12-month contracts.”
This option is an addition to the firm’s existing professional recruiting and talent optimization divisions.
“We’re so excited to be announcing this new division as we pivot to meet the ever-changing needs of the businesses we work with,” Ward said. “As we worked with our clients recruiting single positions and implementing talent optimization throughout their businesses, we saw a huge need for those companies who were constantly hiring new talent. Through Outsource, Hire for Hope will be able to take the recruiting process off these companies’ plates so they can focus on what they do best. This new division couldn’t come at a better time for most companies (that) are strategizing ways to safely reenter the workforce and don’t have the time or resources that we do to hire top talent.”
Outsource is designed to save companies money by eliminating the cost of an internal recruiter’s payroll, taxes, platform subscriptions and more, Ward said.
“But the real value in outsourcing their recruitment process to a team of specialists is the time it saves. With Outsource, teams will have fewer tasks on their plate, which will allow for greater company and employee success by centering the focus on what they do best,” she said.
