We understand that the process for finding and maintaining qualified job candidates is often as critical as the candidates themselves. AAI’s proven methodology is a major reason for the highest levels of client satisfaction.
AAI’s talent acquisition process provides the ability to source an extremely wide variety of skills in an efficient, timely manner. Our process is a beginning-to-end series of actions that give our clients a competitive advantage by finding the best talent, while delivering the best overall value.We understand the importance of an enhanced flow of seasoned IT and engineering professionals. We also recognize that recruiting critical talent, particularly passive job seekers, requires a different approach. AAI’s unique process takes into account these recruitment strategies and requirements.
Networking in Trade Organizations
In order to meet top talent, we must become a member of their professional community. To achieve this, we are very active and participating members and board members of the organizations listed below:
- HIMMS – Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society
- SIM – Society for Information Management
- WITI – Women in Technology International
- NACCB – National Association of Computer Consultant Businesses
- MBC – Massachusetts Biotechnology Council
- ASA – American Staffing Association
- SHRM – Society for Human Resource Management
- ABPMP – Association for Business Process Management Professionals
Ensuring we have the right match is critical to providing the highest value to our clients. We work diligently to understand the abilities, experience, and clear objective of each candidate in order to determine the candidate’s applicability for the position.After sourcing a pool of qualified consultant resumes, each candidate is contacted via telephone as the first step in our screening process. When possible, the Technical Recruiter may conduct an in-person interview with the candidate. During the interview, the Recruiter will obtain an inventory of the candidate’s comprehensive skills, collect a minimum of two business references, and determine the suitability for open requisitions.
We review wage expectations during the interview process and discuss and gain agreement with the candidate on areas of opportunity within the pay rate agreed upon.
Business references are contacted to verify and confirm the technical ability, professionalism, and reliability. AAI routinely verifies U.S. employment eligibility, educational credentials, and work history. Candidates are considered acceptable for submittal when references consider the candidate as re-employable, the candidate has satisfied obligations, and parted amicably with past employers. The reference checks will verify the candidates work ethic, technical skills, and if there is any negative information that would prevent a candidate from fulfilling their assignment.
AAI provides drug screening, criminal background checks, aptitude testing, and other screening when requested by a client. We have national agreements in place with Sterling Testing Systems and Safe Hire Investigations, both leading professional background checking service providers, to conduct these investigations.
Off Boarding and Redeployment
Ongoing Assurance Procedures
AAI monitors and evaluates the quality of our service delivery by analyzing specific metrics agreed upon in advance by AAI and its client. This process will give both AAI and our client an accurate, unbiased assessment of performance as a supplier. The measures afford an opportunity to understand and assess how well a recruiting process performs against your expectations.Typical metrics may include:
- Response time
- Quality of contractor submittals
- Job order fill ratio
- Contract turnover
- MWBE vendor utilization
- Rate exceptions outside of agreed upon rates
- Invoice accuracy
- Customer satisfaction
- Adherence to program model policies and procedures
Metrics designed to measure the program deliverables can be maintained monthly and reported quarterly by AAI. We will develop a corrective action plan for those metrics that fall below the agreed upon baseline, if needed.
