Tap Into Fractional Support to Fill Your Talent Needs

Watch this video with Robert Ferrilli, CEO of Ferrilli, as he explains the value of partnering with ECS and the fractional HR support we provide to the Ferrilli team.

Good, solid talent is hard to find. And yes, we realize that is an understatement, especially in our current environment.

We talk to many, many companies struggling to find the right professionals to fill open needs. Even before the pandemic hit, finding the right talent was a challenge. Now recruiting is even more difficult.

There’s a better model for hiring talent.

Let’s first think back to the old model of hiring – you’d search for the right full-time person to fill any gap you had in the company. Whether for a lower-level position or a high-level leader, you’d look for a full-time employee to join your team.

That method of hiring requires a lot of time, money, and resources. Plus, there is a good chance that in the end you won’t hire the right candidate, and then you’d be back at square one.

The new way of hiring is the fractional way, and is, we have found, the best way to find excellent leaders for your team.

First of all, with a fractional professional, you are paying only for the time you need, and aren’t paying for someone in a full-time position.

Importantly good fractional executives bring their expertise, leadership, approach, and “fresh eyes” to a business situation. These leaders hit the ground running and make a quick impact on your business.  They have experience running pieces of large companies and successfully managing complex issues, which then translates to positive results for your business and your situation.

It is, to be blunt, a win-win situation.

And there’s more

Experience and leadership will drive great results, but the benefits go beyond just experience:

  • Decide how much you want them on-site and how much time you’ll need.
  • Turn them on or off, based on the needs of your company.
  • Don’t pay costly benefits, as a fractional leader is not a full-time employee.

While many of you may have heard of fractional CFOs, there are fractional executives in every functional area of a business, including:

  • Finance
  • Operations
  • Sales
  • Marketing
  • HR
  • PMO
