As we enter the new year, we have been doing a lot of thinking about why the candidates and client companies we work with come to The McIntyre Group and how we can deliver more value to them in 2019. In doing so, we noticed a lot of common themes emerging. We often hear:

From people actively looking for jobs…

  • “I think I’m ready for something else, but the idea of change is honestly kind of scary.”
  • “I want another job, but I’m afraid a recruiter won’t get me, putting me somewhere I don’t fit.”
  • “I honestly don’t know what I want next. I am sure there is a next step, but I can’t quite see it.”

From people who aren’t necessarily looking…

  • “I am comfortable where I am, but am I missing a great opportunity somewhere else?”
  • “The idea of moving on is intriguing, but I an anxious about leaving my job on the right terms and interviewing elsewhere.”
  • “What would make it worth it to me to do something else? How can I be sure I’m getting the best offer if I do?”

From people who need to fill roles quickly…

  • “I need a partner, not just a resume factory, to get the right fit from a skills and culture perspective.”
  • “I either can’t find the right people or I’m overwhelmed by too many applicants.”
  • “I don’t have time to manage the application, onboarding, oversight and review of employees.”

That’s what they say when they first meet us, at least. Once we’ve worked together for a while, they all say the same things: “You listened to me. You cared. You were exactly what I needed.”

What does this tell us? That something is going right.

Why do we tell you? Because we want to keep that trend going in 2019.

This year, we want you to know we are committed to you and your success more than ever.

  • We are committed to understanding you, your desires and what makes you special.
  • We are committing to providing the results you need as a result of that understanding.
  • We are committed to making you comfortable taking the next step in your career journey or hiring process, whatever that may be.

We’ve always believed in meeting you where you are, getting to know you and helping you achieve your goals… but in 2019, you’ll see that belief reflected even more in everything we do.

We know when you work with us, it’s not just about finding your next paycheck or checking the next box on your hiring list. It’s about entrusting us with your future. And we take that seriously.

Here is what you can expect moving forward:

Because we believe relationships are the foundation of results…

  • We will establish and build long-term, authentic relationships with our clients, candidates and employees, consistently delivering strong results based on collaboration and trust.

Because we believe experience matters…

  • We will measure ourselves by the metric we’ve determined matters most over the course of 30-plus years of business: the quality of experience that candidates and clients have when working with us.

Because we believe the right people make all the difference…

  • We will employ subject-matter experts with diverse experience, friendly demeanors and a shared commitment to a collaborative, team-based approach to finding the right “fit” for every stakeholder every time.

We are excited to work with you in 2019. We appreciate the trust our clients have placed in us for more than 30 years, and we can’t wait to build on that by bringing our commitment to you even further to light moving forward. Keep an eye out; you’ll see it. We promise.
