Today’s online world is overflowing with a seemingly infinite pool of both skilled and not-so-skilled laborers, fighting tooth and nail for just a taste of a well paying, satisfying gig. Because of this, top contractors, freelancers and consultants across the globe often feel as if they’re being taken advantage of, exploited and undervalued.
Simultaneously, countless hiring managers feel as if they’re drowning in a sea of overpriced, under-skilled laborers who not only collaborate in an incompetent and inefficient manner, but who also provide subpar service. When hiring managers do find a high-skilled professional, capable of producing quality work, they’re consistently forced to pay well above market value.
But how can this be? If laborers across the world feel underpaid and unappreciated, why do hiring managers simultaneously feel overcharged for mediocre, second-rate service? It’s simple really.
The resourcing market is broken.
That’s why we created Hubbado, our answer to the broken resourcing market: a trusted community of invite-only consultants and employers, empowered by innovative technology, assured by total transparency and enhanced by complete automation.
Here are 5 ways we’ve disrupted a broken resourcing market:
1. We focus on quality over quantity
Agencies are often focused on quantity rather than quality, pushing quick sales for rapid commissions. Skills and expertise are often misrepresented, and swarms of poor quality candidates flood platforms across the globe making the search for adequate talent an extremely frustrating and time-consuming process.
All hubbado members are vetted and approved to join after an extensive on-boarding process, including face-to-face interviews with well-regarded industry experts. Our careful selection procedures ensure both hiring managers and freelancers are trusted, legitimate members of the community. We believe this level of quality assurance makes our pool of employers and contractors more attractive than any other.
Our consultant search and profiles quickly identify verified skills and expertise to help you find the right person for your role.
2. We cost less
Because of their high overhead costs, agencies regularly tack on excessive fees of 20% or more, forcing hirers to stretch their budgets and making it near impossible to find the right level of skill for a particular job.
When hiring managers do find a high-skilled professional, capable of producing quality work, they’re consistently forced to pay well above market value.
A simple 10% fee, paid by the buyer, is all that is charged when a consultant is hired. So our consultants take home 90%, and you don’t pay over the odds for your hires!
3. We’re totally transparent
Due to a common lack of transparency among resourcing agencies, consultants are often unaware of the full range of margins and markups that have been applied in addition to their normal rates. Hiring managers naturally criticize and haggle over these seemingly bloated prices. Freelancers, who feel their rates are justified and fair, begin to feel undervalued and unappreciated.
We are totally transparent about our pricing, and
4. We encourage direct communication
Agencies rely on poorly designed communication systems make it difficult to stay connected and often cause delays, while skills and expertise can often be misrepresented to hiring managers.
At hubbado we encourage direct communication between employers and consultants to ensure that all parties are able to negotiate rates and navigate the hiring process with mutual satisfaction and total transparency.
By connecting hiring managers and consultants directly at hubbado, we’ve also removed the costly middle layers associated with traditional recruiting sites.
