Austin, TX, June 29, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- 5Point Staffing Solutions, a division of 5Point Professional Services based in Austin, Tex., is pleased to announce the successful completion of its first year in business. 5Point Staffing placed more than 30 permanent positions and 25 contract positions in and around Austin this past year. Clients range from small firms to Austin’s largest employers. The company’s staff grew from one to six current full-time employees, with expectations to grow by approximately 10 more in its second year.
Launched in May 2006, 5Point Staffing provides recruiting and staffing of IT professionals, including software developers, network and system administrators, database designers, web developers, help desk staff, and professional services personnel.
5Point Staffing’s success is largely due to its innovative recruiting process called Recruiting Intelligence (RI). RI is the compilation of all of the pieces of information needed to successfully and efficiently recruit a candidate for a position.
“The initial consideration of RI is to find out how the open position relates to the business needs of a company, and from there, we learn the details about the company and start building a job profile,” said Carrie Zagelow, practice manager for 5Point Staffing. “We interview our clients as thoroughly as job candidates. From the size of the team to management style, dress code, and working environment, no detail is overlooked.
“This provides our clients with only the best candidates to fit their needs and culture perfectly, eliminating the need to review a large quantity of resumes,” said Zagelow.
Derek Wright, president of 5 Point Professional Services, credits Zagelow with bringing RI to Austin’s staffing market
“Carrie’s use of RI has streamlined the recruiting process and brought immense value to our clients,” said Wright. “With her decade of experience, she and her team have developed a proven solution that they execute extremely well. 5Point Staffing makes it very easy for clients to fill positions quickly with the very best candidates.”
Tony McDow, founder and CEO of Quadralay Corporation, has filled three positions through 5Point Staffing.
“In the last 10 years, we have tried many recruiters, none of which have delivered near the success that 5Point has delivered,” said McDow. “We are so glad to have 5Point in our corner as a resource to leverage as we grow.”
The success that 5Point Staffing has seen in the past year has the company looking forward to the next twelve months, as expansion to the either the Dallas/ Ft. Worth or San Antonio market is on the horizon.
“Our business plan is to open a second location once we hit $1 million in revenue, and if things continue to progress at the rate they’re going, we should be there by the end of 2007,” said Wright.
