We Know Our Candidates

Candidates from The Whitham Group have a longer tenure than other firms. The reason why is because we take the time to learn about the candidate and develop genuine relationships with them. Other firms turn and burn search assignments to fill anything they can as quickly as they can. Most of them push high pressure closing tactics so they can earn their commission, not caring if the candidate is a fit for your organization or not. At The Whitham Group we are not driven by fees, we are driven by our relationships with candidates. Our firm invests over $100,000 annually back into renewable energy by sponsoring, exhibiting, attending, and volunteering at events like the Solar Power International, The Inter-Solar Conference, The World Energy Innovation Forum at Tesla, Energy Storage Summit and many more events.  Candidates and clients count on us every year to be accessible to them and present. This is how long-lasting relationships are built.

Our Placements Last

Our retention rates are high. We give a 6-12-month guarantee on our candidates. Other firms give you 30-90 days because they have a higher risk of the candidate falling off. Ours stick.

Our competitors make statements like “We stand behind our 90 day guarantee and have a 98% “retention rate.” In other words, if their candidate quits after 90 days, they see it as a successful placement and you have just spend $40,000 to train this new employee and are left with lower morale, lost revenues & opportunity costs starting the search from scratch to finding another search firm hoping this will not happen again.

Whitham Group offers 6-12 month guarantees on our placements and we recruit with your culture in mind and what your top initiatives are for the role.

Woman Owned Business

Federal tax breaks are available for companies using a woman-owned business to procure recruitment services. In addition, tax liabilities are lowered for organizations using women-owned businesses to supply services to a project funded by federal or state grants or loans. Studies show that consumers prefer to buy services and products from companies that share their core values. By partnering with a woman-owned business and diversifying your supply chain, you’re letting existing and prospective customers know that it’s important to your business to support firms owned by women and minorities. Special networking and training opportunities are available to women-owned businesses, providing them with the chance to partake in professional development that isn’t available to their competitors. In addition, businesses owned and controlled by women are able to compete for exclusive government-funded projects bringing the assurance that their businesses are being regulated and are in good standing.

Our Guarantee

Other firms in our niche and our competitors offer a 60-90-day guarantee on their placements. So that means if the Client Company hires someone from that recruiting firm and pays their fee of $40,000 and the candidate quits one day after the guarantee expires, the client company just paid $40,000 to this recruiting firm who first most likely did not vet their candidate correctly and just threw anyone in to the mix to make a commission. That firm will have to replace this candidate but think about the training cost, lost opportunity cost, sales/ revenues, etc. It also affects morale when someone quits, and a new replacement comes in. It reduces the confidence in the company and the recruiter was already paid so they have no incentive to refill this role and will not treat it as a priority.

At Whitham Group our retention rates are high, this allows us to pass along the longest placement guarantee in the industry to you.  We give a 6-12-month guarantee on our candidates, because we do the work by taking our time not turning and burning to get a commission as fast as possible.
