How to Bring Jobs to Your Community with Essential Pros
Anyone who has searched for a job – meaning everybody – knows how difficult and challenging the process can be. Too often, job seekers send off resume after resume, never hearing back from companies whether they’ve been rejected or not. The amount of time writing and rewriting cover letters can be mind numbing! One study found that the average job search takes five months, which is a significant amount of time to spend without job or financial security.
On the flip side, employers, too, have no easy task in hiring new employees. Oftentimes, new hires don’t pan out as expected in the interviewing process. Just as frustrating, companies increasingly have a difficult time retaining employees that are a great fit. According to a recent study by Willis Towers Watson, a global advisory company, out of 1,650 employers surveyed, 83% said they expected to have problems attracting employees this year, and 74% believed retention would be a major issue in the coming year.
In such a tumultuous time for the American economy and workforce, Essential Pros has proven to play a crucial role in bringing jobs back to communities across the U.S. Indeed, Essential Pros franchise owners are one of the best ways to serve your community by connecting quality job seekers with quality work. For nearly 15 years, Essential Pros has made a positive impact on the lives of people in search of work, while keeping businesses running. How do we do it? By taking a personal, hands-on approach that places an emphasis on getting to know the goals and desires of the job seekers, as well as the needs of the employer. We call it “The Essential Difference” – by assessing individuals not only for professional experience, but also character, we’ve set countless job seekers into meaningful career paths.
The Essential Pros Franchise Difference
As is the case with so many staffing agencies, a job seeker will submit their resume and be forced to wait for an unknown amount of time to hear back. What’s more, most staffing agencies are more concerned with getting people in and out the door, which leads to bad hires – translation: time and money lost by the employer. Essential Pros and “The Essential Difference,” however,” change all that.
Our systematic approach to hiring is unlike anything else in the industry. From the start, we get to know job seekers on a personal level by conducting in-person interviews. We not only review their resume, but also look for any gaps in work, reasons for leaving past employment, and understanding what job would make them the happiest. We also check references and conduct drug tests. This personal touch is one of the reasons why Essential Pros makes such a meaningful impact on smaller to mid-size markets, especially in light industrial, light manufacturing, agriculture, as well as clerical and administrative businesses.
The process doesn’t stop there. Once hired, we make sure the employee is showing up on time and is a good fit. As a result, we build trust with both the employer and employee. “Essential Pros does everything other agencies say that they do, but they don’t,” says Travis Powell, CEO of Essential Pros. “This is the reason that after 14 years in business, Essential Pros hasn’t lost a single client – and that’s saying something, considering we’ve expanded to five locations in new markets in that period of time. That’s our Essential Difference.”
