Our Services

In the recruiting industry searches are typically conducted using Retained , or Contingency search models.The River Group offers both service models and will often design a hybrid model utilizing the features of both retained and contingency to tailor fit a solution for your staffing challenges. Our Contract Staffing service addresses our clients more project oriented business needs and can be a great solution for fluctuating economic climates.

Retained Search Services

A Retained Search is preferable in cases where a company has a pressing need for a key position to be filled within a small time frame or in many cases confidentially. The positions filled under this arrangement are normally of strategic importance to the organization and quite often are for leadership positions. For this type of need, the advantages of a retained search are significant. A Retained search assignment is given priority status in terms of the level of consulting talent assigned to the search and the time and resources that are dedicated to the project. A retained search will always involve the direct oversight of a Partner and in many cases will be conducted by a Partner. Candidate profiling and testing is offered as a complimentary service for all retained search assignments.

The fees for a retained search are typically higher than in contingency assignments, given the level of energy and resources that a search firm invests in sourcing quality candidates. Retained Search fees are normally paid by the client over three set time periods (beginning of the search, at 45 days and then again at 90 days) as previously established milestones are met.

Contingency Search Services

As we emerge from the recent recession and the economy begins to take hold, are you finding that key positions continue to remain empty or are becoming filled by under performers? During this time of economic recovery you cannot afford to waste your time or money by hiring under-performers. By utilizing The River Group’s Contingency Search services you can expedite the search process, increase candidate quality and improve your retention rates while off-loading many of your day to day staffing burdens.

We believe our role is to supplement your search efforts and we feel this approach has contributed to the strong relationships we have with our client’s HR organizations.Our value is in taking the “tough to fill” positions off your plate and enabling your HR team to improve efficiencies by focusing on other staffing projects that are critical to the success of the company. Unlike traditional recruiting companies we will assist you through the recruiting process, as well as take an active and advisory role during candidate selection, striving to ensure the long term success of the placement.

In a contingency search arrangement, a fee is not due until we have successfully completed the search and the prevailing candidate has begun work. One of the benefits of a contingency search service is the flexibility in which the fee agreement can be structured. We will consider your requirements,timelines, goals for the position, company culture, etc. and develop a fee agreement that will meet your needs.

Contract Staffing Services

Are you and your company experiencing higher labor costs by staffing up for peak production – then suffering decreased efficiency, customer dissatisfaction and lost business from underproduction?We understand that staffing a business with a constantly changing workload can challenge even the most experienced and best run companies.

  • The River Group serves its client companies by providing a reliable single source for all your staffing needs, Temporary Staffing, Contract and Permanent placements.
  • We will provide you with the most qualified job candidates when and where you need them. We run drug screens, personally interview and conduct a background check on every job applicant before they come to you.
  • Your new hire reports to work on a “try before you buy” basis. We will handle all the employment paperwork, payroll, taxes, unemployment and worker’s compensation.
