One of the biggest complaints we see about virtual employees is that they aren’t properly screened before they’re placed with a client. Other staffing agencies require you to sift through thousands upon thousands of resumes, essentially guessing who may be a good fit for you. He or she may look okay on paper, but that doesn't mean the relationship will be what you're looking for. And if you chose the wrong talent, you've got to start the arduous searching process all over again. These staffing agencies collect money to give you a list of people, but when it comes to screening and assessing the talent, they just don't do it.
One thing we pride ourselves on at PredictiveTalent is our extensive screening process. We require our talent to meet specific standards, such as being U.S.-based, and then we interview them. Before we present our talent to a client looking for virtual help, we make sure the he or she is a good match and can meet the needs our client is looking for. We do all the searching and assessing before we even suggest the talent to you.
Next time you hire virtual help, whether it is through us or elsewhere, be sure you know the screening process the talent went through first. It’ll save you a lot of time and money!
