Quick Turnaround Helped Industrial Services Client Address an Unexpected Resignation with Zero Disruption to the Project
After an unexpected resignation from their lead Full Stack Developer, our client needed to interview and onboard a backfill immediately to ensure their replacement had time with the incumbent for knowledge transfer. Within 24 hours of getting the requirement from the CIO, Whitaker had submitted 3 profiles of excellent candidates local to the area who were available to start immediately. The shortlisted candidates were interviewed, offer accepted and onboarding were completed within 10 days, allowing 2 days to be spent focused on knowledge transfer with the outgoing Developer.
Since coming onboard, the candidate has been working on custom development projects and has established himself as a leader for the development team.
“Incredible, integrity is what comes to mind. I can rely on what your team says to happen. If I need a change, we discuss the adjustments and they’ve been able to extend a resource and it is all done with tremendous respect. You put the customer first, follow the golden rule, represent good people and have excellent follow through.” – VP, Information Technology, Houston

Flexible Staffing Solutions Help Specialty Chemicals Company with Urgent Staffing Needs
Facing a talent shortage and increased demand for their products, our client needed help meeting its urgent staffing needs while ensuring the professionals were the right “fit” for their company. Whitaker offered a flexible staffing solution in a contract to hire arrangement so the hiring managers could determine fit prior to hiring full time.
Client was pleased with the opportunity to evaluate the person, and the contract to hire option was more cost effective for them.
““The marketplace is very tight for the types of skills we need. With the baby boomers retiring, there are fewer mid-level managers to move up the ladder and just not enough junior-level managers to fill the roles. So we have to go outside at times. Whitaker has provided us with excellent consultants, and nearly every person we’ve hired through the years on a contract-to-hire basis through Whitaker is still here. I would definitely recommend them—and already have.” – HR Manager
