Key Benefits of IST Direct Hire

Dedicated talent acquisition.

Over 2/3 of Human Resource professionals don’t actually like handling recruiting responsibilities.  They wear too many hats to be able to give this essential activity the attention they feel is necessary.

  • We have experts that know your market and understand what it takes to be attractive to the right candidates.
  • Technologies for hiring change quickly and we stay out in front of the changes to make your strategy competitive.
  • We can bring particular insight into your employment brand to measure the effectiveness and recommend adjustments.
