SMART Recruiting

First off, the acronym for SMART simply represents a philosophy that will provide a


In order to “Get SMART” you simply need to follow the four simple principles identified below.

  1. You must Outsource certain tasks to offload overhead.
  2. Think of your outsourced party more as a Strategic Partner than just a third party vendor. True Strategic partners realize the importance of your success and become a trusted agent that can plug directly into your processes and procedures.
  3. Put control measures in place to make sure you obtain Superior Results from your new strategic partner.
  4. Pay your strategic partner 20% Below your employees annual salary and bonus. Doing so means you’d probably be reducing your true employee cost by 50 % or more.

The SMART program isn’t your normal fee arrangement. It’s a fee that your company can pay to a highly capable and cost efficient outside party that will provide you certain needed capabilities.

As stated in principle #4, in order to be considered SMART, the fee must always be significantly less than what employers pay an employee (we recommend paying no higher than 80% of the employees salary and bonus).

Why Should You Consider SMART Recruiting for Your Organization?

Because organizations of all sizes often grapple with the question of outsourcing or hiring and maintaining employees. At Ridgeback, we looked at the true cost of maintaining employees and developed the SMART program to meet the needs of businesses of all sizes.

Hiring new employees is always a daunting task and you’re never sure what the new employee will be like until after they become a team member. So why take the chance in hiring a new recruiter? Making the wrong hire can quickly lead to low productivity, increased costs and maybe even bring down other members of the team.

Many businesses make the mistake of just looking at the direct costs associated in maintaining employees.

The truth is employees are expensive to maintain; the salary you pay them is only one cost so contact us now to learn how you can recruit smarter.
