33 in Out of all of the firms we looked at, Bluewolf took the time to understand our cultural fit and evolved the types of candidates based on our feedback. Conor Sibly Chief Technology Officer, Higher Logic top three game changing tips To attract and retain the market s best tech minds amid the current bidding war for top IT talent, you need hiring and retention strategies which go beyond a competitive salary. We asked Conor Sibley (CS), CTO of Higher Logic, a prominent media services company in Washington D.C, Stephany Samuels (SS), VP of nationwide recruiting at Bluewolf, and Michael Kirven (MK), cofounder at Bluewolf, what they thought were the most important tips for hiring tech talent in Here s what they had to say. TiP one hire for cultural fit Cultural fit is one of the most important considerations for hiring managers if your team is close-knit and humming, the wrong hire can throw it off balance. CS: We are very picky about personality fit. During the hiring process, even over a phone screen, there are people that we talk with that we know would not be a fit. Others may fit the job requirements on paper, but just don t have the spark. We have found that when we have had to let people go, it s been because of a poor personality fit rather than technical reasons. Be clear on
34 what your company and team culture is and isn t, and expose candidates to it from the outset. When you identify a high-quality candidate who is also a cultural fit, make the offer immediately. TiP two embrace the elastic workforce As companies adopt flexible technologies and embark on innovation-driven projects, they need to adjust to an agile staffing philosophy where you can turn on/off the right contract resources as needed. MK: For many of our clients, we provide an elastic workforce, or contingent pool of specialists that can be drawn from on an asneeded basis. Unpredictable requirements of today s business cycle strain full-time staff. To get the most from your workforce, supplement your full-time staff with a pool of contractors with specific skill-sets. Look for candidates who can quickly go into a situation, gauge the culture, processes and challenges, and tailor the technology to the company s most immediate needs. As technologies are implemented and changed so quickly, candidates also have to be able to quickly adjust and reorient themselves to shifting objectives and priorities. TiP three try before you buy How many times have you hired someone with high expectations and been let down? Bringing in a full-time employee before they have time to demonstrate their skills may be a risky investment for your team and budget. SS: When interviewing a candidate, the most important question I ask myself is whether this person has what it takes to help our business grow. By hiring them on a temporary basis, we have the time to feel confident the consultant is a good fit and consistently exceeds our expectations. When adding a new employee, it is best to test them to see if they will fit your culture and environment. Once the consultant has passed your test, then it s time to make the commitment and the investment. It s a winwin situation for you and your new hire!
