We encourage employees to share in the excitement of the business. the vacuum Nature abhors a vacuum, and thus opportunities arise to fill existing gaps in service. Velossent grew out of an awareness that a gap existed in the options companies could find to effectively and efficiently fulfill their staffing needs. It was founded because industry needed a proven recruiting approach that focused not only on filling requirements but also on the quality of the hiring process, the level of service, and the choice of delivery mechanism to deliver the staffing solution. Our aim is to provide a complete solution. For example, we donâ?Tt just add a resource to your recruiting team, we provide that resource and the tools he or she needs to be successful (a laptop loaded with the recruiting and business tools, software to keep track of and communicate results). For our clients to be successful, we have to be successful in adding value to their operations and processes. Our goal is to impart learning opportunities to grow as recruiters, recruiting organizations and business people. We believe that by being â?orecruiters of recruiters, for recruitersâ?, and providing the tools to increase their successes and effectiveness, we are indeed different. And this difference is designed to provide balance to our clients' operations.
