Meet the Hire Velocity Team
In our last blog post we discussed about the importance of making sure your organization and the RPO firm you choose are compatible with each other. We also commented on the importance of choosing an RPO with the experience to back what is promised in the Service Level Agreement. At Hire Velocity, we are confident that you will be impressed with our experienced team and will enjoy the long-lasting partnership created when you make the move to outsource your some or all of recruiting tasks.
We would like to virtually introduce you to the Hire Velocity top management team. While we focus on the top management in this post, but we can assure you that our entire team is experienced in the recruiting industry. Hire Velocity understands the importance of having qualified and caring employees. For that reason, we have high standards when choosing to add new members to our team.
