How do you find, identify, and select talent (what is your process)?

Our ability to attract talent starts by recognizing that the applicant is the centre of our universe, so all of our systems and processes have been optimized to attract talent and provide the best experience possible. As a result, most people come to us through referral. We find that when we are successful at helping somebody achieve their career goals they send us several more high quality professionals so that our available talent pool grows exponentially.

Our hiring advisors are active members of their communities and maintain active relationships with professionals and networking groups related to the key industries and job functions for their areas of specialization. Additionally our recruiters receive annual certifications in social recruiting to further expand our ability to find and interact with top caliber professionals. Often these professionals aren’t even looking for work, so somebody who was limited to advertising would never have access to these people. As a result of our social media expertise, ActOne Entertainment Staffing was recognized as a Top 10 Page on LinkedIn.

To further fill our talent pipeline, we conduct job fairs, utilize dozens of advertising sources, and leverage multiple other recruiting sources to ensure we have talent with the skills and attributes most needed by our customers.

When it comes to selecting talent for you, Your Hiring Advisor starts by conducting a complete needs assessment including sales and production requirements, 90 day scope of work, team composition, and customer styles. This structured process helps us develop a deeper understanding of the role’s impact, and often reveals key details that do not always make it into a formal job description.

Your Hiring Advisor will come to your site and conduct what we call a Synergy Scan, which allows us to identify the key employee attributes needed to fit in long-term with both your team and your customers. This often involves profiling the most productive employees in the department to develop a keener sense of what skills and abilities result in engaged and successful employees. The Synergy Scan helps us frame the job opening into an appealing opportunity to attract solid candidates.

We’ve invested in the best tools and processes to provide the highest standards in talent benchmarking. We ensure a thorough and consistent evaluation process which includes extensive interviews with each applicant using behavioral-evaluation techniques. Our branch staff takes the extra time to learn an individual’s aspirations, talents, skill level, past experiences, preferred work environment, and more, allowing the applicant to be placed in a position best-suited for him/her. Our skill assessments allow us to test hard skills such as proficiency with key software tools as well as behavioral skills. We require all applicants to provide their employment history with a minimum of two positive business-related references. Once verified by ActOne Entertainment Staffing, these references can identify past workplace behaviors and tendencies that help us determine ideal workplace environments for each individual. At client request we can also conduct full background screening.

Yes, we are.

We have always made it our goal to consistently offer our customers the best talent, at the fastest pace and at the most competitive price. As many of our customers have expected, ACA creates incremental health insurance costs, a new benefits administration infrastructure, technology for automation and monitoring, engagement of experts, employee communications, and employer reporting requirements.

We have a long history of being able to attract and retain top employees. We will continue to offer a competitive benefits package to ensure we uphold our reputation of employing top employees. As an employer, we are responsible for making available ACA compliant coverage to our employees.

In general, the ACA will make it easier for non-traditional employees to secure health insurance coverage through an employer, or the Healthcare Exchanges. This should result in a greater supply of temporary employees.

We are committed to the legal and ethical management of our work forces pursuant to its provisions.

To fully comply with ACA requirements, we have:
  • Implemented automated technology systems to assess eligibility. This avoids diluting the recruiters’ time spent supporting the hiring needs of our customers and the placement needs of our candidates
  • Implemented an automated employee notification system with multiple points of contact for quicker employee service
  • Provided access to an enrollment platform for all eligible employees
  • Established Compliance Auditing
  • Developed multiple benefit plans available to provide employees with choices
  • Created a comprehensive benefit administration process via our internal Enrollment Department, and in-house licensed subject matter experts
  • Devised a technological configuration and build-out to accommodate:
    • Hours capture
    • Eligibility thresholds
    • ACA specific capabilities
    • Future evolutions of ACA mandates
What kinds of certifications do you have?

We’re proud to share that we are ISO and IMAGE certified, which means that we have a consistent and in-depth recruitment and placement process. We don’t miss anything when we’re interviewing candidates or asking them to complete the typical employment eligibility documents, skills assessments, reference checks, and, upon our clients' request, background checks.
