From interviews to background checks, we balance our focus on customer-service with a detailed, and assurance-minded system of checks and balances. Read below to learn how we consistently provide great matches to our client companies.
Invest in our expertise, we don’t just connect you with a resume. We find the best talent for your organization from our network of thousands of qualified candidates.
Finding the best talent without down time is crucial to minimizing the costs of procurement. For temporary assignments, our median time-to-fill is just 27 minutes, and no matter what you’re hiring for, we try to provide resumes within 24hrs of receiving your job order. The typical employer draws candidates from three to six sources. AppleOne draws talent from 25 or more sources. One of these sources includes our 200+ North American recruiting centres with Hiring Advisors who are incentivized to work as a team to get you the quickest result.
During a candidate’s initial interview we capture as much about his or her experience, goals, and attitude as possible. We go beyond the resume to invest time with the applicant, because there’s only so much a job description can say.
We use the industry-leading provider of skill evaluation software, ProveIt!®, to design assessments that are highly customizable and tailored to your specific industry. This means that we’re able to filter, and cross-reference our talent network with a fine degree of control—showing you the best talent available without all the noise.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 them to be placed in a position best-suited for him/her.
Our assessments allow us to test hard skills such as proficiency with key software tools as well as behavioral traits and work styles. We require all applicants to provide their employment history with a minimum of two positive business-related references. Once verified by AppleOne, 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.
More than 50% of all employees who leave a new job do so in the first 12 months. If you hire on your own, this means you incur the time and expense all over again. We are so confident in the quality of our placements that we back your investment for up to five years on both turnover and succession.
Whether you need one person, or hundreds, AppleOne offers hiring programs and options that work for your business. Below, you’ll find our core hiring programs and step-by-step guides for how they typically work and how AppleOne interfaces with your company.
We begin every engagement by getting to know you and your company’s needs. From researching your business, to meeting your staff and touring your facilities, we look at how we can build long-term relationships with our clients.
You need someone effective, proven, and vetted, who also needs to integrate well with your other team members. Request a free consultation online to begin the process, or to just get valuable feedback.
You’re assigned your own dedicated Hiring Advisor, who will be your main point of contact and oversee the hiring process, from start to finish. Your Hiring Advisor will be chosen based on your sector and business needs, giving you the best opportunities for great hires.
Next, your Hiring Advisor will arrange a time to meet with you at your company location. The goal is to have a conversation, within the context of where the actual work will be done, and to speak with everyone who has a stake in any new hire’s position.
At the time of your choosing, your Hiring Advisor arrives at your business to listen to your criteria and concerns, any hiring challenges you have faced, and observe your unique environment and company culture. We also try to meet all your key department managers and thought leaders.
We’ll discuss how specific hiring programs and options will add immediate and long-term value. We’ll go over pricing and program options noting any effective, timely solutions that may be of benefit. At this point, we usually give you specific talent profiles for you to begin to evaluate.
Once the scope of the position and hiring program are finalized, your Hiring Advisor will guide you through our job order process in order to formalize the project and begin sourcing talent.
Our client companies use this program to find top performers to fill crucial roles in their businesses. AppleOne has been providing Direct Hire recruitment for over 50 years and it remains a cornerstone of our unmatched expertise.
Maybe your company is expanding, someone just got promoted, or you just lost a valuable member of your team. Either way, you need someone effective, proven, vetted, and they need to integrate well with your other team members. Request an online consultation to let us know exactly what you need.
We’ll work quickly to match your requirements to talent in our network by actively marketing your position and company to the very best people in our talent network. We’ll also check to see if we need to screen for specific skills, or to perform additional screenings.
Your Hiring Advisor will start sending you targeted talent profiles, typically in less than 24hrs. And because our talent comes pre-screened, we can vary the profile criteria in order to ensure you’re getting the right solution for your project.
Now that we’ve worked out “who” you have an interest in speaking to, all you have to do is gauge which person is the best fit. We’ll arrange any interviews with talent that you have an interest in, and be available to communicate your decision to our talent.
We’ll follow up with you after your interviews to answer questions, discuss concerns, and to see if anyone seemed like a good match. If not, we provide more options. If someone is a good fit, we’re here to discuss compensation packages and incentives should the need arise.
Congratulations! It looks like you found an amazing, new team member! At this point, the candidate is brought into your company and onto your payroll, but our job doesn’t end there. We’ll follow up in the coming weeks to make sure everything is going well. Plus, you have our 5•50 Guarantee to back up your decision!
When you need to bring someone on immediately, but also have to mitigate your risk, we suggest our Temp-to-Hire program. Evaluate how a placement works with your team and within your company culture, while on our payroll. We combine the speed and flexibility of our Temporary staffing services with the power of our Direct Hire recruitment services.
Once the specifics of your Temp-to-Hire position are discussed and agreed upon with your Hiring Advisor, they’ll get to work finding a selection of appropriate talent to suit your needs.
Usually within 24 hours, your Hiring Advisor will present you with talent profiles for consideration. At this point, all you have to do is review the profiles with your team, and decide who you’d like to interview.
Once you’ve selected some promising matches, your Hiring Advisor will begin scheduling interviews. Just let us know your availability, and we’ll take care of all the arrangements and communication.
During an associate’s evaluation period they’re an employee of AppleOne. This means they’re on our payroll saving you the costs and risks associated with hiring. Evaluation periods typically last 90 days, however, you can discuss specific timeframe options with your Hiring Advisor.
At the end of the evaluation period, you’re free to hire or decline the talent provided. At this point, the amount of real world observations gained during this time should allow you to make a confident and informed decision.
Congrats, you just found a great new member of your team! It’s time to begin the process of bringing them on board. Your Hiring Advisor will consult with you about their compensation package should you need.
Temporary or Contract staffing provides you with fast help when you need it for as long as you need it. Maintain your productivity in any situation through contingent workers, and mitigate the costs and risks typically associated with full-time headcount.
Whether you need one person, or hundreds, AppleOne can provide the talent. Contact your local branch or your Hiring Advisor and we'll get started.
In cases where speed of deployment is the main concern, we can fill positions directly without the need for you to review resumes or conduct interviews. After your Hiring Advisor has finalized your job order, they’ll begin filling positions immediately.
Talent will report directly to your designated on-site point of contact. Temporary placements remain on our payroll, so we take care of their timecards, paycheques, and all worker’s compensation fees associated with them.
We check in to see how everything’s going. Following up is an important part of what we do, and want to make sure we’re fulfilling your expectations. If someone isn’t working out, we’ll send a replacement.
We hope our temporary workforce was able to offset the demands of your business. We know every business encounters variables in demand, so we’re here for you whenever you need it!
At the end of each work day, your temporary placements will fill out their online timecards. You’ll have a chance to approve their hours online before we process anything. That’s it!
At AppleOne, we operate by a certain set of values and expectations that have allowed us to build amazing relationships with our client companies through the years. At our core, we’re committed to lending our expertise to helping you find solutions to the problems you face today, or tomorrow.
Qualifications being equal, the difference between a great hire and an adequate one is often a question of how well they fit into your company culture. Our Hiring Advisors take the time to understand the atmosphere, pace, values, and climate of the companies that we find placements for.
We go beyond the resume to find out as much about a candidate’s experience, goals, and character as possible. What environments do they thrive in? Where’s their career path taken them, and where do they see themselves going? Successful placements isn’t just about analyzing what‘s on paper. They’re about finding relationships that can thrive.
We know that most companies aren’t in the business of hiring. For over fifty years, we’ve worked very hard to develop the footprint, expertise, and agility to support the hiring needs of companies both big and small—finding the right talent wherever they might be. We believe that our network truly is your network.
When your company needs a new team member, we don’t think of it as "filling a position." Our approach is to get the word out about why your company is great. It means creating awareness and exposure around the values and culture that will attract interest in the long term. We don’t just hire for you, we market you.
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, AppleOne 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.
