scout lays the foundation for Epstein's success
According to Criss Paccione-Anderson, Epstein’s Senior VP Director of Corporate Services, it’s a tougher hiring environment for architectural engineering talent than it was 15 years ago. The marketplace has changed, and there’s greater turnover. On average, employees are changing jobs every 18 months.
Epstein faced the challenge of finding construction site managers with experience in building industrial plants in a very specific niche, food manufacturing. This additional requirement made talent extremely hard to locate.
Thanks to Scout, Paccione-Anderson says Epstein has had a lot of success and cut their recruiting time down significantly. Overseeing all corporate functions for the U.S., as well as offices in Warsaw and Bucharest, Paccione-Anderson is always busy. She appreciates that she can use Scout passively. “I don’t have to answer emails or take calls from recruiters. I just don’t have time for small talk.”
With the ability to save time and find more specialized talent without having to do a retained search, Paccione-Anderson thinks Scout is here to stay.
