How to Shift From Rigid Recruiting to Solution Selling w/Stephen Sweeney

In a market that’s constantly evolving, recruiting with a “set menu” approach doesn’t work. Instead of doing the same thing over and over, we have to constantly create new solutions for clients and candidates. 

What if you could treat recruiting like an adventure? What if you went into the market every single year with a new recruiting product, tailored to the exact demands of your dig at that time? 

That’s the approach Source Recruitment Group takes. They are constantly innovating and evolving how they staff, which keeps them ahead of the curve. The basics of good recruiting don’t have to change, but how we connect with candidates has to. It’s harder to reach people on the phone, so we have to take a marketing approach and be innovative about how we get in front of and in touch with them. 

What are some of the innovative recruiting products they are developing? How did our guest rebuild after a rough time in business? In this episode, CEO and founding partner of SRG, Stephen Sweeney shares the story behind the success of his trans-Atlantic recruiting operation and his unique staffing mindset.
