In Friday’s Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal, ESP was once again quoted in the Fast50 Feature. Here’s how Bob Hildreth answered their questions:
1. Please tell us about at least one “best practice” that your company uses that helps set you apart from the competition. What is the one thing that you do over and over again that helps lead to your success?
In the fast-paced IT industry, too often the focus is only on technical skills and past work experience. We know the importance of that when it comes to hiring, but we also see value in understanding a candidate’s interpersonal and soft skills. We’ve made it a best practice to spend a significant amount of time getting to know a candidate. We want to have an in-depth understanding of their career goals, personalities, and work styles to ensure the best fit for their careers and their future employer.
