What is included in a Retained Recruiting agreement?

Updated: Jun 19, 2019

Silver Tiger Consulting's retained recruiting solution provides a cost effective and efficient nationwide alternative to other methods of recruiting employees. Our services are a true extension of your internal HR and hiring departments.  We minimize interruptions and lost productivity associated with recruiting for your hiring manager and your existing internal HR staff compared to just using internal resources and/or contingency recruiters alone. 

As a key feature of our retained recruiting solution, we are building a constantly fed warehouse of candidates for your positions for you on systems you own.  Using our services has been proven to significantly reduce your costs over time compared to not only contingency-only recruiting options but also in-house recruiting methods and processes.

  9. Pre-screening of all candidates to ensure that the candidates that are being placed in front of the hiring manager meet his or her minimum requirements levels, and any salary or special work considerations a candidate requires (i.e. flexible schedule) that are out of the ordinary are identified and communicated up front to the hiring manager to determine if they are acceptable.

  14. Create a template and provide assistance in determining appropriate documents to include in a new hire package. Please note: for legal and compliance reasons, Silver Tiger Consulting does not provide new hire paperwork or check new hire paperwork for new hires under Retained Recruiting only agreements.  For help with this, please contact for assistance with one of our other outsourced HR packages.
