Despite hiring freezes and lay-offs, many companies are turning to our direct pipeline of the best young minds as a cost-effective solution to traditional hiring models
Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) February 11, 2009
“The Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex offers a unique blend of industries and balance between large corporations and middle-market companies. This expansion is part of a national effort to better serve clients with cost-effective solutions during tough economic times and prepare companies as baby boomers start to leave the work force,” says Gilles Tanneur, CEO. “It’s a silent battle field now, but as boomers retire, the companies most likely to succeed are the ones attracting and embracing this crucial demographic.”
Unlike conventional acquisition agencies, Brill Street focuses on the best and brightest Generation Y talent, while providing continual coaching and mentoring behind the scenes. “We sit at the crossroads of emerging professionals, universities, alumni associations, and companies across all industries seeking to leverage their enthusiasm and experience,” comments Tanneur.
“We’re a ‘game changer’ in this industry—the days of interns and recent grads spending countless hours making copies and getting the bosses’ coffee are over,” adds Brandi Blades, VP of Marketing.
Leading the Dallas initiative is Marcia Pellicone, who brings 20 years of industry experience. Marcia will be focused on new business development and educating today’s employers about tomorrow’s talent. According to Pellicone, the response in Dallas thus far has been strong. “Despite hiring freezes and lay-offs, many companies are turning to our direct pipeline of the best young minds as a cost-effective solution to traditional hiring models,” says Pellicone. “On average, we’re receiving 300+ new applicants per week and adding new companies to our portfolio each day.”
Tanneur echoed the sentiment, particularly as the nation’s economic perils have made it difficult for most companies to properly manage staffing to meet evolving needs and exigencies. “Brill Street is not only positioned to help fill temporary staffing gaps, but grow corporate pipelines in anticipation of the shortage America will soon face as the current workforce starts to retire,” comments Tanneur.
