Customized Business Services
Building Relationships
Refer qualified applicants to meet employer needs by using highly skilled staff who specialize in screening and matching
To increase the percentage of listings closed with one or more hires
To Guarantee to the employer that every referral made will be a job seeker they will be comfortable hiring
To maintain the referral to hire ratio of 5-1 or lower
How we get there
Understanding Business Needs
WorkSource Oregon staff visit the business to gain a full understanding of:
Business Culture
Recruitment needs
Hiring processes
Ideal candidate qualities
Training opportunities
What is the average length of employment for the staff
Who is their customer base
Together with the business, WorkSource Oregon staff decide if Customized Business Services is a good fit for their hiring process.
WorkSource Oregon staff managing Customized Business Services listings are expected to collaborate with the business and look for creative ways to source ideal candidates.
Tools and resources to identify candidates:
iMatch Skills
Training Partners (Title 1B/WIA)
Trade Act (TAA)
Veteran's Services
Claimant Welcome/REA
Quality Information
Company Website
Community Colleges
Vocational Rehabilitation (OVRS)
Online Job Boards (Craigslist, etc.)
Social Media (Facebook, LinkedIn, etc.
DHS Partners
Field office staff are well versed with local labor market trends to understand the regional workforce needs, craft solutions for the employer, and recruit candidates from both inside and outside our system.
WorkSource Oregon staff interview all candidates in person prior to making a referral to the employer. This in-depth screening ensures that every candidate will be someone the employer would feel comfortable hiring.
Continuous communication between WorkSource Oregon staff and the hiring manager is essential through-out the recruitment process.
For us to provide this level of service, and guarantee the success of Customized Business Services, we recommend the employer route all candidates and advertising to WorkSource Oregon.
WorkSource Oregon staff interview all qualified candidates and selects up to five ideal candidates to be referred to the employer.
We are confident that all candidates will be just what the employer is looking for and the business will have a hard time choosing just one!
All referred candidates are discussed with the employer prior to interview. This is our opportunity to market the strengths of each candidate.
After the employer interviews are complete, immediate contact is made to gather feedback and obtain hire results from the employer.
Often the employer is so satisfied with the quality of candidates that multiple job offers are made.
