Here at Top People USA, we specialize in IT recruitment within the Nashville area. Over the recent years, Nashville has been named one of the most promising places to live. Not only is it known as the Music City, but it has also become an attractive city for start-up organizations. With all the start-ups, many new and seasoned business owners have been looking for ways to further expand their companies, and investing in the IT workforce is their number one priority. Having professional experience in IT prior to becoming Nashville based headhunters makes us especially well equipped to find you the best IT candidates.
The IT industry has a major impact on the entire global economy. According to CompTIA, one of IT’s top trade associations, the industry plays a key role in assisting other sectors in operating more efficiently and improving productivity. So, when it comes to staffing the backbone of nearly every organization, you want to make sure that you are placing your trust in reliable hands.
Our level of expertise begins at the very top of our organization. Our CEO Brandon Sentell has more than a decade of experience in networking, project management, software development, and much more. With his skillset, he was able to form an IT recruitment agency that is equipped with a wealth of knowledge in the IT industry. You can have the opportunity to work directly with a former IT expert based right here in Nashville to help you acquire top IT recruits for your company.
Top People USA works with organizations worldwide, and we provide quality candidates—not stacks of resumes. Our priority is to send you potential employees, and we make this commitment because we are serious about building a trusting relationship. As IT recruiters, we surpass other area recruiters because of our technical understanding, and our contacts allow us to search for hard-to-find technical expertise both domestically (USA) and internationally.
Top People USA Recruitment Agency
Top People USA provides both permanent and temporary personnel assignments in the Nashville area. Our background, extensive industry network, financial transparency, and collaboration with clients have set us apart as one-of-a-kind IT recruiters finding the perfect candidates for you. This level of experience comes from working in the field of network and systems engineers, project managers, sales engineers, and partnering closely with software developers on projects.
Another thing that sets us apart is how we create partnerships with our clients. We are committed to connecting you with the best candidates for your position. We sit with you to understand the skillset that is required along with the environment of your organization so that we can present the best recruits that will fit your team and strategic vision. We also are completely transparent about our profits, and we do not hide our fees on contracting and temporary staffing candidates.
Many of our clients have said that they felt we were an extension of their own efforts. That is because we go above and beyond to ensure our interests are aligned with yours. From the very beginning, we clearly identify your needs and adjust candidate selection if need be.
We work around your IT recruitment processes and ask for your commitment to communicating with us so we can provide the best partnership possible. Once you decide on a candidate, we conduct a reference check and very much treat it as an interview to ensure the recruit is, in fact, a perfect fit for your team.
We aim to build a strong and trusting relationship with you. The IT market is competitive, and you deserve an advocate that will help you attract employees that are exactly what you are looking for in your IT recruitment needs. So, if you are a Nashville business seeking IT recruitment, Top People USA can meet your needs.
We offer a replacement guarantee relevant to the seniority of the position of all candidates. We try to ensure that our work is thorough and that the guarantee will not be needed, but we recognize that no selection method can be flawless and therefore we offer a guarantee period in order to minimize your risk and create confidence in your partnership with us. We minimize the risk of the need to enact a guarantee by 1.) utilizing our main selection tool; which is behavioral interviewing, by discussing candidate behavior from their previous employment 2.) thoroughly checking references and creating reports for our clients 3.) requesting to sit in with clients on interviews to ensure consistency and 4.) communicating regularly with both clients and candidates even before/after the mention of a guarantee.
A: TOP People USA invests time to understand your company in order to develop a relationship based on mutual respect and trust. This approach assists us in identifying the best recruitment and selection techniques to meet your needs and time frames. It is essential that we understand your requirements, culture, and objectives to complete our job successfully.
A: We do not hide our fees on contracting and temporary staffing candidates, and we are transparent about our profits. For example, if you pay us $70hr and we pay the contractor/temporary candidate $50hr, we break down the $20 so you know the cost associated with that candidate. Many of our clients say that nobody ever does this. As with a permanent placement, you should know where every dollar goes. We make this commitment because we are serious about building a trusting relationship.
Q: What guarantee policies do you have in place?
A: We offer a guarantee period between 3 – 12 months depending on the position and required skills.
Q: How do you find your candidates?
A: We employ various methods including:
- Speaking to our current or previous candidates.
- Connecting with our contacts through our industry networks.
- Searching databases that we have access to.
- Advertising through the web.
Q: What are your expectations of your clients?
A: Communication is the key! We cannot emphasize this enough. The more time we spend with you in the beginning, the better our results will be in the present and future.
We need to understand why you reject proposed candidates. We must hear your feedback, good or bad, so we can learn and improve our selection and interview process.
Keep us updated and move as quickly as possible with your hiring decisions. Remember, good candidates are hard to find and are likely considering multiple opportunities. Delaying may cause them to lose interest and confidence in the business. If candidates do not perceive you are advancing the process, the candidate will move to other opportunities. When a client does not take action within a reasonable time frame, they almost always lose good candidates.
Q: Why do I pay differently on a retained versus a contingent invoice?
A: Retained invoice – The client pays 30% of the estimated recruitment fee up front, then pays another 30% when a candidate short-list is presented, and pays the final balance once a candidate has been placed with the company.
Contingent invoice – The client only pays upon successful placement of a candidate.
Q: What is the benefit in selecting a retained agreement?
A: You probably have heard that the “retained” option will give you a greater commitment from a recruiter. Top People USA is committed to any search you assign to us, whatever invoice method we agree upon. The primary benefits in a retained assignment are less costs and your payments are spread out over installments.
Q: Do you headhunt my staff?
A: ABSOLUTELY NOT – this would destroy our relationship and trust.
Q: Will you inform us if one of our staff applies to one of your advertisements?
A: No, we have an obligation to keep that staff member’s status and information confidential. However, your staff member will be informed that you are one of our clients. Then they can decide if they want to proceed.
Q: What process methods do you employ?
A: We guarantee you will NEVER receive a stack of resumes – only potential employees. Our processes include behavioral interviewing, reference checking and an agreed guarantee period.
Q: We are using 5 or more other agencies. Is TOP People USA ok with this?
A: Do you really have the time and energy to work with five or more agencies? When you involve that many it greatly affects the focus and quality of the selection process. We need your time to communicate with us during the overall process. Top People USA requires a commitment from our clients but does not require exclusivity.
