"The ability to make good decisions regarding people represents one of the last reliable sources of competitive advantage since very few organizations are very good at it." -Peter Drucker
Hiring “A” talent is critical to your business success. Great companies are made by “A” players. The true secret of managing a successful company is a well-guarded secret. The secret is to hire, promote, and retain only “A” players, but this is much easier said than done. It has been proven that only one-fourth of all employees hired or promoted turn out to be “A” players. The other three-fourths (the “B” and “C” players) eventually become hires that do not add much or any value. Even worse, they may end up being promoted and then keep really talented employees from evolving. The cost of a staffing mistake has been estimated at fifteen times salary and a huge financial drain on the company.
Our clients enjoy a higher rate of success by using our suite-of-services to help them hire the right talent for the role. Most agencies only review tangible skills, but we do a much deeper dive and review important aspects of the role such as:
- Whether this is a new or replacement role and why it’s open
- Qualities and attributes above the tangible skills
- Candidate and company goals that are similar
- We review how potential candidates handle challenges and question their strategies
- We look for value-add qualities in candidates such as what they have made, saved, or achieved in their careers
- We discuss the company culture and whether or not the candidate would be a good fit
- We thoroughly review all relevant qualifications
Our story began in 2008 with a tiny office in Frisco, Texas. After investing everything we had into our staffing firm, we eventually forged a relationship with a large equity company. We are grateful that the company is still a J. Madison client to this day!
We have been serving the needs of the equity company’s investment companies in New York City, Connecticut, and New Jersey. Additionally, we are proud to say that we have worked with, and continue to work with, some of the biggest and best Fortune 500 companies in the U.S. We are also diversity certified!
Our success has been based on heavy due diligence with both clients and prospective candidates so that we can represent the opportunity and candidate honestly. We have a track record of low attrition with our placements and have earned much repeat business. We’re definitely not the biggest, but we are highly satisfied with being the best. Our revenue isn’t based on sales techniques or closing techniques but solidly based on the honest assessment of the position, candidate’s experience, and strengths that leads to a successful placement. We make the placements that matter most to our clients, not to our sales executives.
We are thrilled that you have taken time out of your day to review our website and service offerings. Please reach out to me or one of my team members with any questions. We would love to hear from you!
