Contract Staffing Services Frees Up Time and Resources

DHI Group, Inc. uses staffing services to fill several key positions. 

DHI Group, Inc. provides professionals and companies with insights and relevant connections in technology, security clearance, financial services, energy, healthcare, and hospitality. By compiling relevant and current data, it helps its customers understand their workforce and careers. With services and positions in ten countries, DHI Group, Inc.’s mission is to make an impact in people’s lives all across the globe.

CLIENT CHALLENGE

While DHI Group, Inc. does most of its recruiting itself, they realized the need for some extra help in regards to their contract and contract-to-hire job positions. Their recruiters didn’t have the time or capacity to work on hiring both permanent and contract employees, leaving a gap in their recruiting process.

“We needed assistance with hiring positions within our marketing lead generation team and our user experience/customer support team,” said Angela Sharp, Human Resources Manager.

DHI Group, Inc. began to look for a local company that could help them hire talent for their contract positions.

SOLUTION

DHI Group, Inc. chose to partner with Aureon HR's talent acquisition team in 2005, partly because of their reputation and impact in Des Moines. Since then, they’ve stayed loyal because Aureon HR continues to provide quality service time and time again.

“The reason why we stay with Aureon [HR] is mainly the reliability,” explained Sharp. “They’re great people to work with, and they are timely and responsive – all the things you want to see in a staffing company.”

DHI Group, Inc. reveals that it all came down to timing.

“We were looking for someone that could give us a very quick turnaround, and Aureon [HR] delivers on our needs every time,” said Sharp.

Aureon HR was able to provide qualified candidates within one to two days of DHI Group, Inc.’s initial request.

“Aureon [HR] makes it a quick and easy process, and we found that their bill rate is very competitive,” said Sharp. “This has given us a pipeline when it comes to entry-level roles, and that’s very important to us.”

Due to Aureon HR’s success in helping DHI Group, Inc. hire contract and contract-to-hire positions, many of the employees have gone on to full-time positions within the organization.

BUSINESS IMPACT

Because Aureon HR helped DHI Group, Inc. fill several different positions, DHI Group, Inc.’s recruiters have more time to work on other pressing matters.

“It really does free up a lot of our recruiters’ time, so that they can focus on the roles that are harder to fill,” said Sharp.

Overall, the partnership has allowed for DHI Group, Inc. to more effectively recruit and retain talent, and it’s helped the departments that needed the employees to run more smoothly and stay on target.

“It’s been very beneficial for us, and Aureon HR has been very good at actively listening and understanding our needs and our culture,” said Sharp.

Since they don’t have to worry about their contract staffing needs, the DHI Group, Inc. HR department can focus on building trusting and authentic relationships with employees and managers.

It also allows Sharp to have more time to do what she loves: “I enjoy being a change champion for our organization and helping our HR team move the needle forward on our strategic initiatives, and Aureon [HR] lets me focus on doing just that,” said Sharp.
