Forget What You Think You Know About Staffing Agencies

It is true. Staffing Agencies have a bad reputation. Bad reputations are derived from Candidates and Clients not getting what they are looking for, not being heard, not being well represented, and all together bad relationships being formed. Barracuda Staffing was born out of the ashes of such bad reputations in Tulsa during a time when the economy was everything but profitable. Kevin Burr, the CEO of Barracuda Staffing, had been in staffing for several years in the front lines of a war going on in the Tulsa market. He realized the struggles both job seekers and companies looking for talent were dealing with by all marks being missed on several levels. He decided to create a company that would not only address those frustrations but eliminate them.

Barracuda Staffing has managed to continually grow because of Mr. Burr’s vision to create an agency that  listens, cares, goes above and beyond, and ultimately delivers the desired results. Barracuda has a four dimensional matching process that when executed to the fullest capacity produces award winning relationships that last. Let’s take a look at the four categories that are outlined in the recruiting process to reach those relationships.

  1. Client’s Immediate Needs – Barracuda understands what the client’s needs are in the short term. Once there is a need and an order placed at Barracuda the entire company is notified of the new order. Barracuda is ready to fill the order but We have just begun…
  2. Candidate’s Immediate Needs – Barracuda finds matching candidates to an open order as an easy task. We take a look at a candidate’s skills and what they want immediately from a position and do our best to place them. But we don’t stop there…
  3. Client’s Long Term Goals – We take matchmaking a step further to look at what our client would want the candidate we send to do in the long term. It is important that we grasp what our clients expect from employees beyond the immediate need. We still do not stop there…
  4. Candidate’s Long Term Goals – We take the time to figure out what our candidates want in six months, a year, or longer. Our goal is to make lasting placements that match up with all of the candidates’ and clients’ needs.

With the Four Dimensional Matching strategy in place with talented recruiters to execute it, Barracuda has evolved the staffing industry to find perfect matches as opposed to warm bodies to fill a position. Don’t just take our word for it though. Check out Barracuda Staffing’s reviews on Google!
