The TenderHut capital group, employing 270 people, includes 5 subsidiaries: SoftwareHut, Solution4Labs, LegalHut, ProtectHut and ExtraHut. Deloitte Technology Fast 50 Central Europe 2018 ranking placed the company on a high 7th place, meaning it is the fastest-growing Polish company in Central Europe. The company was also included in the prestigious Financial Times 1000 ranking taking the highest (among Polish companies) 23rd place.
The TenderHut team is great at hiring new employees. Each of the stages in the recruitment process is well optimized, which is why they didn’t need our help in this regard. Robert Strzelecki, the CEO of the company, approached us however with the need to look for people who are difficult to find as our cooperation progressed. These are people with a specific combination of competences, often with very extensive professional and business experience. There are usually very few such employees on the market or they have great jobs already and don’t think about changing them.
To put it simply: our challenge was to find people for top managerial positions in the company.
Due to the profile of desired candidates, in this recruitment we focused only on the potential of our social network. The search was based on the contacts of Casbeg consultants from their previous jobs, our friends, business partners and their recommendations, as well as our contacts’ contacts. We have a lot of versatile experience, so it was a very wide group of verified specialists and managers.
Over several months, we have generated 10 applications for TenderHut, which translated into subsequent recruitment interviews. Ultimately, our efforts resulted in 3 out of the 10 presented candidates employed in the daughter companies of TenderHut. All of them got high C-level and managerial positions. One of the candidates joined the team after a whole year from our recommendation, but TenderHut’s management says it was worth the long wait.
The collaboration between TenderHut and Casbeg continues to this day. The company uses our help whenever they need people for high positions.
Casbeg’s help has proved invaluable in finding candidates who will have sufficient competence to manage strategic areas in our companies. At the same time, they also had to be motivated enough to change their current employment situation. Each of the candidates recommended by Casbeg was heavily considered in the decision-making process and finally, a good share of them has been employed by us and successfully working to this day.
