Some thoughts:

  • The cost of a mis-hired employee is extremely high, especially when considering all the time and costs to source, interview, on-board, become productive and then the impact on productivity when having to do it all over again. 
  • The future of work is moving resources off-payroll to a more variable model of engagement. There is a need for resource capacity to perform the work, while having the flexibility to cater for the changes in demand.
  • Finding the right employee is difficult.
  • High-performing individuals sometimes face challenges when they match the need of a driven business leader, but are required to operate in an environment that constrains their performance.

We do contract and permanent placements, depending on our clients’ needs. We also do a temp-to-perm option.

Given that all commercials are in place between Colab and your company, such as being registered as a Service Provider, as well as the duration of your interview process, it can take between 2 and 7 weeks to place a contractor, depending on the availability of the chosen resource.  Our norm is to have a shortlist of suitable candidates on your desk within 7-10 days from requirements date.

No, Colab Talent Placements does the hard work for you. We take the pile of CVs off your desk, onto ours. After our thorough screening process, we apply our proprietary matching model, and we send you only the 3 best CVs for the position. 

Yes, that is the benefit of the temp-to-perm model. You can start by appointing a resource on contract, and if the individual is a good fit for your company culture and way of working, you can go ahead with a permanent placement.

Having resources on contract enables you as a business leader to have a flexible, off-payroll workforce that can scale with your demand needs, so that you can focus on driving strategic results. In addition to making recruitment easier, contract placements also reduce expensive mis-hires.
