Our Recruiting Services

Imagine working with an HR recruiting firm that’s motivated exclusively by your satisfaction – not by commissions. Welcome to SDHR Consulting; we do things differently and we’re proud of it.

“A recruiting firm that’s not based on commissions? Really?” We hear this all the time. That is to say, our clients are often surprised by our unique approach to talent acquisition. This is simply because they’ve never experienced it. But once they do, they’re hooked.

The difference in our recruiting services is found everywhere, including in our pricing. For years, the recruiting industry has relied on charging clients up to 25%-30% percent of a candidate’s salary. Unfortunately, this practice may incentivize recruiters to simply fill the position quickly– regardless of whether the candidate is the right fit. This may also lead to cultural mismatches and a higher rate of attrition and dissatisfied clients. That’s why the majority of our clients prefer our Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) approach, which is based on a reasonable hourly rate, as opposed to contingency fees.

Match-Making Approach

By removing the commission incentive, we’re able to focus our energies on what we do best: matchmaking! Everyone hopes the hiring process results in a meaningful relationship with a skilled employee whose personality compliments yours. As matchmakers, we concentrate on finding candidates who not only look good on paper but who are the right cultural fit for your company. Before we begin the talent acquisition process, we intimately get to know your organization to ensure we’re selecting candidates who will fit in seamlessly with your culture. This may be the most important aspect of the recruiting process. As we partner with you and become a part of your company, we create an interactive process that contributes to a higher retention rate. By setting expectations right off the bat, we create a ripple effect of partnering with our clients that contributes to high-quality candidates and a competitive fill time.

Most importantly, this “right fit” approach of recruiting results in lower attrition and a stronger long-term relationship between you and your new employee.

What is Recruitment Process Outsourcing "RPO"?

We partner with clients to bring them two recruiting methods: Contingency and RPO. While both of these methods are efficient, in most cases, our clients’ preferred method is RPO.

RPO may sound like a complex and unfamiliar term, however, it is actually quite simple. Recruitment Process Outsourcing is the process of working with an external expert to achieve the hiring needs of your unique business.

The simplest way to think of RPO is as an extension of your company’s Recruiting function. As a business owner you wouldn’t tackle your own legal advice, would you? Then why would you take on the highly involved process of recruiting? Just as you would hire an external expert for your auditor or legal advisor, partnering with an RPO expert should be no different.

When partnering with SDHRC think of us as your personal recruiting experts, allowing you to reach your goals including sourcing excellent candidates, utilizing technology, and relying on sound methodology and proven practices.

Compliance Regulations

The process of hiring candidates can be risky due to the ever-changing nature of compliance regulations. However, when you hire SDHRC you can be assured you are fully in compliance with current laws and standards, mitigating your risk.

Access to Technology

Our RPO experts have access to technology and advanced accounts that find exclusive candidates that meet your qualifications while being a cultural fit for your company.

Improved Quality of Hires

The quality of hire may be one of the most sought-after benefits of an RPO. Therefore, SDHRC devotes its resources, time, and energy to learning about your business and the goals of your company before we start recruiting. Using this knowledge, we act as an extension of your team and present highly qualified candidates, who are not only skilled but are a unique cultural fit for your business.

Heightened Retention Rates

Oftentimes companies using in-house recruiting are left feeling defeated and frustrated at the percentage of new hires that either quit or end up not working out after only a short period of time. Our retention rates are heightened thanks to our match-making approach where we become an extension of your team to find high-quality candidates who fit your company culture and values.

Reduced Costs

We can greatly reduce costs compared to staffing agencies and in-house recruiting departments. Our skilled RPO experts have extensive experience and defined processes which work to save you money while also providing you with exceptional candidates.

Efficient Time to Hire

There is a cost to you for each day your open position is left vacant.  For this very reason, our team of recruiters works efficiently to actively fill positions in a timely manner, saving you time and money.

Client Testimonials

"Recruiting is the hardest thing I've done as a CEO but I'm super appreciative to work with a team that collaborates and communicates as well as this team has. We have placed 5 employees in the last 12 months and we are currently in the process of placing an additional 5. They have been a critical component in reducing the amount of research and vetting it takes to grow our team with quality employees."

John Acevedo

CEO, Veteran TV
"Working with SDHR makes recruiting a breeze! Melissa and the team are so easy to work with, responsive, flexible, and fast. They are able to find qualified candidates within days so you can fill your open roles quickly and move on to other priorities. Can’t say enough great things about working with them!"

"San Diego Human Resources Consulting is incredible to work with. I love the comfort level and attention to my needs that they have given. If anyone is looking to use a firm to help fill their positions, I'd highly recommend SDHRC and the skills and care they bring to the table."
