Often hiring managers rely on their existing staffing and consulting partner to hire Project Managers for additional bandwidth. Some of those partners tend to be mainstream commercialized IT staffing firms. Although, traditional staffing firms are able to adequately fill generic project management roles, they struggle to find top talents for complex projects such as ERP implementations, cloud infrastructure, or for cloud engineering. This is where working with a specialized project management recruitment agency such as Progile Tech Inc, make sense.
A boutique or specialized staffing agency is a firm that provides a lot of importance to customer service, which means, it carefully curates the applicants according to the clients’ project requirements. It has specific strategies and processes to ensure high-quality staff admissions that meet the employer’s requirements. Generally, a boutique staffing agency is assumed to be small in size and that takes on smaller assignments. This, however may not always be true. Hence, a boutique agency is an agency that simply provides a more customized service than a commercialized agency.
Large and commercial agencies have a huge database of candidates and have more experience in the recruiting business. These agencies have the capacity to provide temporary and permanent staff. Usually, large agencies are assumed to be the better choice. This may not be always true. With the recent emergence of newer and specialized skill sets, it is becoming increasingly difficult to fill all positions. This is one of the key reasons why boutique staffing agencies are gaining popularity.
A boutique staffing agency shows its true value by applying customized methodologies to the recruitment process which ensures high-quality of the staff recruited. Their objective is to find the most suitable candidate, no matter how specialized or niche.
In conclusion, working with specialized agencies for specialized roles tend to cut down time, reduces management oversight and adds bench strength to your team.
