The average search can take anywhere from three to six months. The standard recruiting fee is 20 percent of the candidate's salary. And once you find someone, there's the investment onboarding, training, benefits, relocation.
Then, there's the cost of starting the process all over again one to two years down the line, when the talent you hired leaves you for the next opportunity.
I had a front row seat to all of this, and it got me thinking: How do you increase your talent pool when talent is really scarce? How do you alleviate the frustration of hiring candidates with zero company loyalty? And above all, how do you make sure you get what you need as fast as possible, so your company can build and grow?
We clearly need to do a better job, as a country, of producing the next generation of software developers and engineers, as my colleague Todd Buelow recently pointed out
. But what is the solution for right now? The companies giving North Carolina its status as a rising entrepreneurial hub
can't afford to wait.
That's what has brought me to Dualboot Partners.
We allow companies to replace the wild card of a new hire with a highly qualified, proven team so you know what you're getting right from the start.
