SOLUTION

How did you select Bee Talents?

Our first meeting was organised by Paweł Pisanko and since then Paweł has truly been a great partner that put his thoughtfulness, preparation and personal approach into understanding our unique recruiting needs and tailored the approach appropriately.

What was the team composition?

A formal cooperation between us and Bee Talents started in March 2020 and involved a series of preparation meetings, position scoping, adjusting the methodology of work, assigning a recruiter with in-depth knowledge to land a successful candidate for us.

The recruiter that was assigned to the search was Adrianna Gęsiarz.

Adrianna diligently followed the agreed process: scoped the responsibilities and the company needs, sourced and headhunted matching candidates, provided us with weekly reports and insights, followed up in any case needed and did all her responsibilities efficiently to find us a talented senior professional that could join our company in September in the Global Head of Software role.

In September we had a successful candidate joined our team.

The workflow was very effective.

At all times we have found the Bee Talents team members to be reliable, dependable and efficient partners to cooperate with.

Are there any areas for improvement?

None.

Feedback summary: 

Flexible and capable of fulfilling specific requirements, Bee Talents provided tailored services. After a thorough screening process, they passed along qualified resources. Customers can expect a responsive partner that prioritizes availability. Their commitment extended outside traditional hours.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the CTO of the second-largest credit intermediary in Poland. We help people get mortgages for houses.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Bee Talents?

We were expanding our IT team.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Bee Talents helped us find two great developers. We had an initial video call with one of their principals to discuss our needs. It was followed up by a meeting with the account manager assigned to us and one other person. They collected all the information about whom we were looking for and what skills we needed. We got candidates that were prescreened by Bee Talents, and each one corresponded to what we were looking for.

We started with one full-stack developer and decided to also search for a frontend resource mid-process. Bee Talents told us that they didn’t have any free slots to take that job, but they were willing to extend the existing job in order to find the second developer. It was nice of them to agree to this.

What is the team composition?

There were four people present for the first meeting, including the CEO.

How did you come to work with Bee Talents?

They were recommended to me by a friend. We trusted that recommendation and didn’t look for any other agencies.

How much have you invested with them?

Their offer was 15,000 Polish zloty ($4,000 USD) for one recruited employee.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Bee Talents in July 2020, and we signed the contract with the second employee in September.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

We’re very happy with the results. Bee Talents’ process was transparent and they did a lot of work for us. A lot of agencies can find suitable candidates, but we got exactly the people we needed. We didn’t just a post generic job description for a full-stack developer. It was very specific. The advantage with Bee Talents is that we only got a few candidates, but they were perfect matches for us.

How did Bee Talents perform from a project management standpoint?

We communicated through Slack, email, and phone calls. They were available anytime we wanted them, and the collaboration was 100% excellent.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I’ve had good collaborations with a few talent agencies, but this one was simply excellent. They were very precise with the candidates they delivered, which isn’t always the case in my experience. I’m sure that I’ll be calling Bee Talents the next time I need support.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They were available to us at any time, and we received emails outside of working hours, either very late or very early. This was both an advantage and a disadvantage because we weren’t always available at those hours. The complaint is minimal at best.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

Clients should be as precise as possible in defining the requirements. It’ll allow Bee Talents to match their needs exactly.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the CEO and founder of Whites Agency. We’re a digital agency specializing in SEO as well as social media, content marketing, and other things. 

We target enterprise companies like large organizations, mostly from Poland, but also from other countries in Europe, the States as well as others.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Bee Talents?

At the time, we were much smaller than we are now and we had no HR team whatsoever. We were struggling to hire people because we didn’t have much knowledge about the process and there was a lot of work to do. We hired Bee Talents to help us with the process.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We outsourced hiring to Bee Talents, with the goal of hiring four or five people at the same time. They handled the whole process with initial calls and first talks with potential candidates. Along the way, they showed us how it was done in a professional way through some transfer of knowledge at the same time.

In hiring four or five interns, there were a lot of applications. They handled the whole process and I believe they also arranged the classifieds. They reviewed all the applications that came through, and they chose some of them for initial calls. The team delivered several candidates for me to choose from. In the end, they delivered pretty good candidates and we chose from that group.

What is the team composition?

At that time, I believe there were four or five people. I believe they are larger now, with 20 people or more. We were mostly in touch with Maciej (Co-Owner & COO) who handled our account and did most of the job himself. 

We also worked with the founder at the beginning and at the crucial parts. She also showed us how the process would look, the key points as well as KPIs, and what would make it successful and smooth. She was more responsible for transferring the knowledge to us. Maciej was responsible for handling the process with the candidates.

How did you come to work with Bee Talents?

We had a mutual connection, and he recommended Bee Talents to me as he knew that we were struggling with this process. The founder was at the beginning of starting her own company.

How much have you invested in them?

It was a few thousand dollars.

What is the status of this engagement?

I don’t remember exactly when it was, but I believe it was in the summer of 2016 and it lasted two or three months.

We felt it was a crucial part of our business as a whole so we decided to internalize the process.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

In general, the cooperation was successful as a result of hiring the right people. However,  they also helped us understand how crucial the recruitment and hiring process is and how it could be done. I believe the value was great and the value for money was even better. 

We were completely happy with the decision to work with Bee Talents as well as the results we got. They helped us hire the right people at the right time.

How did Bee Talents perform from a project management standpoint?

I was also very happy about the project management aspect. They showed us how smooth and organized the company could be. We had been on the market for a couple of years, and with their previous experience from larger organizations, they demonstrated a higher level than what we were doing at that point.

What did you find most impressive about them?

There are a couple of things. I was in contact with Bee Talents even after we finished our cooperation and we stayed in touch. They are very dedicated, and they try to think from our perspective and our business perspective. 

The team worked to understand our situation, goals, objectives, and so on. We felt like Bee Talent was a part of our team and that’s what differentiates them from other companies, especially other HR companies.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They could have charged more. They learned that lesson and they do charge more at this point. My experience was purely great, so there is nothing that comes to my mind when it comes to areas they can improve.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Talk to them and make sure that they understand your business. Also, make sure you know who you’ll be working with because, in this business of B2B services and the consulting business in general, it is important to know who actually will be working on your account. 

I don’t know their whole team, but everyone I have met was great. Make sure there are senior people on their side and not junior people.

Feedback summary: 

Throughout several collaborations, the recruiters from Bee Talents found the perfect candidates for the agency. Their assessments are high-quality. Customers can expect a responsive team that listens to their needs and provides solutions. 

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the founder and CEO of Rebased, a software development agency that focuses on Ruby on Rails and JavaScript. We create bespoke software, and we maintain, develop, improve, and rescue existing projects that have proven to be viable business models.

We’re brought in after the startup or MVP phase has ended, and the concept is validated. We make products work not for 100 users, but 100,000. We focus on complicated products that are worth developing further.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Bee Talents?

Bee Talents has looked for experienced and battle-hardened developers for us. Developers that work on startup or early-stage products are fine, and it’s fine to have a software built by a developer with 2–3 years of experience, in order to validate an idea and build the first version of a software.

In order to take that software further, we get into scaling, maintenance, high availability, high data volume, and high usage problems where we need a way more experienced developer. We require developers with at least five years of professional experience, and that had soft skills as well.

The developers working with us have to be not only good at technical aspects and at identifying pain points and business requirements but also have excellent interpersonal skills. They have to be assertive but polite and respectful. They needed to be good at working with others.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We had an initial call to discuss the specifics of our work and how we differ from other software development agencies. We’re usually brought in as an augmentation of existing in-house teams, and often as more experienced developers that can take the projects further.

The developers needed to be able to organize brainstorming, gather requirements and basically help the existing team achieve better levels of software quality than they’d had before we stepped in. We weren’t looking for genius coders who couldn’t talk to people. This is how we described the perfect candidate to Bee Talents.

We described how we work and what some of our projects look like so that Bee Talents had enough information to pitch candidates. We needed to prove to them that we were going to give them enough challenges, but also enough support to grow further and have some interesting challenges in their careers.

After that, we started the process of finding candidates.

For them, combing through people is always a case of the same-kind complexity. They have to search through hundreds of LinkedIn profiles, reach out to 20–30, and recommend 10 for us to talk to. They prefer to have contracts that span recruiting 2–3 people, which equate to 2–3 success fees for the same amount of work.

After giving out invitations through LinkedIn, Bee Talent handles the first phase of interviews, basically early screenings focusing on the person’s language abilities. Bee Talents checks how comfortable the person is with using English. They also do the first assessment of the person’s soft skills, looking at whether they’ll fit into the team and work properly with other people.

After they’ve greenlighted all the fields we’re looking for, they’ll send the candidates to us. We handle only the technical part of the interview, after which we make a decision.

What is the team composition?

Our main points of contact are a recruiter and an account person. I know that there are other people on the Bee Talents side doing the initial reach-out, including a language expert.

How did you come to work with Bee Talents?

I trained CrossFit with one of the people who later became a sales associate of Bee Talents. It was essentially a personal connection. I’d also heard about Bee Talents before because they were founded by Aleksandra (CEO), who was already well-known and respected in the development community.

It’s kind of rare to have a recruiter that’s respected among developers. There’s an incredibly low signal to noise ratio when developers are getting lots of offers from recruiters, which are usually completely unfit to their experience and technologies.

Aleksandra had worked for a well-known software company, so she already had the social capital to attract clients. Everybody we talked to about Bee Talents was happy with them, so we decided to give them a chance.

How much have you invested with them?

As far as I remember, their fee is a single monthly salary of the developer we’re hiring. Half or a third of that is paid upfront, and the rest is paid after signing the contract with the developer. This might sound small since other recruitment agencies request two salaries, but we’re a company that pays a lot.

Bee Talents is happy to get a single month’s salary as a fee. For us, the ballpark is €4,500 (approximately $5,100 USD) per person. I believe we recruited two people in 2018 and three in 2019.

What is the status of this engagement?

Our first collaboration was between December 2017–January 2018. The second collaboration was in 2019, and we’ll sign another contract with Bee Talents the next time we’re going to be recruiting.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

We first went to them to recruit two people, and Bee Talents was so good that we went to them again the next year.

Their contracts are exclusive in that they’re going to be the only recruiting agency working with us at that particular time so that other agencies don’t interfere. They’ll allow us to have our own independent recruitment process running in parallel, and the developers we find that way aren’t subjected to the fee.

The model works, and no one’s trying to outdo or cheat the other side. We have a healthy, honest agreement, and it works. We’ve done it twice, and we were happy with the entire process.

I’m always super happy with their services. Whenever we had a hiccup, or there was something that had to be communicated differently, we told them, and they immediately adjusted their communication process.

They respond very well to feedback, and I can’t find anything bad to say about working with Bee Talents. That doesn’t happen very often in my case. Working with Bee Talents has been a breeze so far, and I hope they keep up the good work.

How did Bee Talents perform from a project management standpoint?

We’re happy not just with the quality of people they’ve brought to us, but the communication is also great. Our contacts are on our Slack channel dedicated to recruitment where we bounce ideas back and forth.

They’re responsive, and they send nicely-formed emails about the candidates. They have a well-defined template for the candidate assessment results, with sections for their soft skills, language skills, areas of improvement, and their recommendation level.

We’re definitely going to work with them again.

What did you find most impressive about them?

We’ve talked to quite a few agencies, and Bee Talents was the first one that listened and properly identified and understood what set us apart from other development companies and what our expectations are. They found candidates that fit those requirements. This is something I haven’t found with other agencies.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I can’t find anything they could improve on.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

I advise clients to give it a try. They should set up a call and see if there’s a common vibe–if they think and communicate in a similar way.

Feedback summary: 

While Bee Talents found a wide range of potential hires, the quality of candidate provided allowed the client to make four hires after conducting only 29 interviews. Communicating efficiently through Slack, the firm impressed with their understanding of the challenges of the recruitment process.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the leader of the HR and recruitment department for a software house.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Bee Talents?

We wanted to quickly hire developers, but we didn’t have the capacity to hire many people at the pace we wanted. They’re enabling us to reach out to more candidates.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They’ve worked on four different recruitment projects since starting our partnership. It’s been their responsibility to support our company in many recruitment processes, as we search for remote Ruby on Rails development teammates. They reached out to candidates for us and sent recommended candidates to our team. That allowed us to focus on a smaller pool of applicants.

What is the team composition?

We’re working with several dedicated consultants on their team. 

How did you come to work with Bee Talents?

They were recommended to us by one of our employees, who had a great experience with them in the past. 

How much have you invested with them?

We spent about $5,000 on their services.  

What is the status of this engagement?

We’ve been working together since July 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

Because of their services, our company only had to interview 29 candidates to make four hires. I was pretty impressed, and they made sure there was still a wide candidate pool to choose from.  

How did Bee Talents perform from a project management standpoint?

All of their consultants were well-prepared for the recruitment process and knew what they were doing. They were timely as a company. We established a Slack channel as our main source of communication, which allowed us to speak pretty quickly. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

Our relationship has grown over time. For instance, they invited us to participate in a webinar on remote work with them. They’re a very specialized agency in IT recruitment. They’re dedicated to each recruitment effort, and their expertise helps them be effective.  

Are there any areas they could improve?

I’d love for them to begin approaching international candidates.
