Novo Continues to Expand to Meet High Demand for Its Unique Recruiting Solutions
St. Louis (May 15, 2012) – The Novo Group, a fast-growing managed recruitment services firm, announced today that it has opened an office in St. Louis, Missouri. Steve Williams, a veteran in the human capital industry, has joined the company as Business Development Director and will be responsible for growing and cultivating client relationships within St. Louis and surrounding areas.
“Opening up an office in St. Louis was a natural choice given the robust large middle-market companies and need for strong technology talent,” said Cindy Lu, president and CEO of The Novo Group. “The addition of Williams and the opening of the St. Louis office continues to allow Novo to expand its services and provide new opportunities for businesses located in the mid-west.”
Having worked with numerous Fortune 1000 companies in St. Louis, Williams brings invaluable market knowledge and experience that will help Novo continue to expand business relationships. In addition to his strong track record for building and managing new business initiatives, Williams has over 14 years of experience in working with HR leaders and helping them transform their departments into a strategic resource.
“Novo has a unique recruiting model driven by its understanding that in order to attract and retain top talent, clients need proactive strategies and processes along with world class recruiters who work with them every step of the way,” said Williams. “I am excited to work with such a collaborative and innovative company.”
Over the past nine years, The Novo Group has been transforming corporate recruiting with offices in Milwaukee and Chicago, serving clients nationwide. And now, Novo brings its innovative business model to St. Louis. Novo provides a unique alternative to traditional 3rd party recruiters and search firms through its best-in-class search process that delivers, on average, more qualified candidates at half the cost of contingent and retained search firms.
While some organizations have the resources to hire recruiters who are dedicated to talent acquisition, according to a recent Novo survey of 100 HR leaders, over 80% still outsource some portion of their recruitment function. Not surprisingly, Novo has been growing quickly, having experienced 67% growth last year as more companies continued to turn to Novo for flexible, scalable recruiting with a unique, hourly pricing model that transforms recruitment into an easily manageable operating expense. In 2011, Novo recruiters filled over 500 professional positions at an average cost per hire of only 11% and 50% were passive candidates.
