When it comes to recruiting, one size definitely does not fit all, so we have created four models for our recruiting services.
CONTINGENCY PLUS™ RECRUITING
PeopleConnect’s unique Contingency Plus™ placement service is for full-time salaried positions, and offers the thorough research, expert leadership and personal attention of a retained search, without requiring you to pay in advance.
Unlike retained firms, we’re old fashioned enough to believe our job is to deliver quality people to you before asking to be compensated. Our recruiters and researchers have years of experience, and use good old headhunting techniques to identify the top candidates. We’re confident in our ability to find the person you need, and it’s risk-free for you, because you pay us after we produce results.
EMPLOYEES WITHOUT PAYCHECKS
We get a lot of attention for our innovative Employees Without Paychecks (EWP) recruiting model, which we created after the downturn of 2001 to help startups who desperately need top talent, but don’t yet have the funding to hire them.
Our recruiters are experts at finding remarkable entrepreneurial candidates who are willing to work for Equity Only, or Equity Plus Commission, until a startup gets its next round of funding.
EWP candidates are seeking full-time employment, and are willing to forego salary for at least a few months. We help you negotiate their package, which includes the pre-funding equity period, when the monthly salary is paid in shares, and the post-funding compensation package.
Our Employees Without Paychecks model is a win-win, because it gives entrepreneurial talent a chance to make a real mark from the earliest stages of a company, and it gives startup companies the key employees they need to bring their vision for the company into reality. Best of all, EWP helps to complete the executive team that investors want to see, which can help close the next round of funding much more quickly.
