SCOUT Direct-Hire Recruiting Services

Matching Top Talent to Organizational Needs

The people on your team create a unique combination of skills and experiences that can generate Competitive Advantage.

Adding or replacing a core team member is, therefore, a high-risk, high-reward venture.


Too often, undisciplined New-Hire recruiting leads to great disappointment and early departure.

Some studies even suggest that over 50% of all New-Hires fail to meet the original expectations of the hiring manager!
The cost of mis-hiring can be staggering, often costing 3X the annual compensation of the person who represents a poor fit for your needs.


  • You’re looking for a superstar — a difference-maker — to add value to your efforts, one that will create COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE and drive PROFITABLE GROWTH.

  • But often, the necessary time, energy and attention this task requires from internal resources butts up against your team’s other competing urgencies and priorities. And so the critical recruiting efforts that can drive your long-term results often get short shrift.

  • Recruiting top performers is a unique challenge – it is labor-intensive, complex and intricate, requires a rare set of people skills, should leverage business expertise, and demands a clear understanding of the client’s objectives and culture.


Why not deploy the services of a specialized group — a reputable and successful staffing-and-recruiting firm — whose sole purpose and daily activity is to identify, evaluate, maintain contact with and recruit talented individuals and excellent performers?


At Shannon Staffing, our lead recruiters take on only a handful of SCOUT Direct-Hire assignments at a time, to give each opening the right and necessary amount of time, energy and attention that will lead to a successful and timely hire by you… one that will help drive strong performance and deliver on key objectives


  • Recruiting is just like any other business skill you hope to master, and greater volumes and higher frequency lead to increased opportunities and faster lessons learned.
  • Being good at recruiting (like being good at engineering, sales, marketing, etc.) requires focus, commitment, and a standardized process to optimize results.
  • We apply a disciplined approach and formalized framework to take the guesswork out of recruiting.
  • Instead of replying upon your own personal experience and gut instinct, we use a consistent, disciplined and successful methodology that is designed to minimize risk and improve outcomes.
