If you’ve been in charge of employee hiring for any length of time, you know finding and recruiting quality candidates is a task that gets put off until it’s absolutely necessary.  It’s time-consuming, draining and can (leave you feeling cold)(give you the chills) even thinking about it.
 
Let Apricity take the chill off your hiring worries.
 
Pronounced “a-PRI-city”, it means “the warmth of the sun in winter” (it’s from Latin, if you’re into etymology).
 
Think of us as your ray of sunshine during the cold months of recruiting.
 
Whether it’s direct hire or contract-to-hire, our professionals can find the candidates you can’t find for yourself. Give us a call to find out more.

If your staffing needs are fine but you’re looking for your team to work together in a more efficient manner, you’re in luck…we do team development, too. Because finding the right people is just the beginning.

Recruitment

One of the biggest challenges a company faces is finding and hiring quality people. Salaries and benefits are some of the largest expenses in doing business, so getting it right from the start is one of the most important things you can do.
 
And we can help you do that.
 
There are a lot of recruiting firms to choose from. What makes Apricity different?

 

Our size
As a smaller organization, we have a level of flexibility that larger firms may not have. It also means we love working with startups, smaller companies and even nonprofits...organizations that still need to hire great people but don’t have the expertise, time or energy to track down the best candidates and convince them that YOUR company is the place they need to be.

Fee structure
Being a small company also means we can offer flexibility in our fee structure, so you won’t get stuck with a five-figure commission invoice due on your new employee’s first day at work.

Specialization
We don’t try to be a jack of all trades. We know what we’re good at, and that’s what we do. So if you’re trying to fill a need in one of these areas, let’s talk:

  • IT/Engineering
  • Sales/Marketing
  • Executive/Leadership

In short, we specialize in sourcing the candidates you can’t locate because, let’s be honest, if you can find who you need on a job board, you don’t need us (or any recruiting firm, for that matter). 

Let our specialists help you find the perfect fit. Give us a call to find out how

Team Development

Hiring is not the only thing we’re good at. We also do team development, because finding the right people is just the beginning.
 
Finding people capable of doing the work you’re hiring for is but one element of the hiring and employment process. Why? Because there’s one thing we’ve seen time and again: if there’s no cultural fit between the employee and the company, it’s only a matter of time before someone becomes unhappy with the arrangement.
 
That’s why we offer team development training.

Whether it’s the Everything DiSC© or the Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team™, Apricity can help your current staff better understand themselves and your team’s dynamics. It’s all about communication: how you do it, how others do it, and how what you do can be interpreted…and how you might interpret others’ actions.
 

The DiSC is an assessment tool commonly used to learn more about yourself and others. It can help you learn how to better communicate with others, not only in the workplace, but also in life. The version of DiSC Apricity facilitates also helps you understand how you or your staff might react in certain work situations, depending on their DiSC style.

The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team is based on the work of Patrick Lencioni’s research into team dynamics. The Five Behaviors assessment picks up where the DiSC leaves off and helps people and companies learn what is necessary to build cohesive and effective teams in the most effective way possible. Team members learn how to work together efficiently and effectively by building trust, learning how to deal with those uncomfortable conversations that are necessary but everyone avoids, and how to hold yourself and others accountable.

We pride ourselves on our selectivity, working with those companies and nonprofits who truly understand what makes their organization worth working for.

When you work with Apricity, you get not only a recruiter, but also a partner in your success.

We know that matching the right candidates to the right companies is, in the long run, better for everyone: our clients, the candidates and us.
