PKF O’Connor Davies, LLP, the nation's 28th largest accounting and advisory firm, today launched TalentConnect, a new outsourced recruiting offering that allows clients to utilize the firm’s deep team of HR experts and network of accounting and finance professionals to identify and recruit top talent for their organizations. The service, which will be offered at a fraction of what it would cost to engage headhunters or employment agencies, is the latest innovation from PKF O’Connor Davies as the firm continues to push for new ways to add value and deepen client relationships.

“Talent is the key to winning, and we believe this offering can help level the playing field for some of our clients that don’t have the HR depth to compete in the recruiting game,” said Kevin J. Keane, Managing Partner at PKF O’Connor Davies. “We have a deep team of HR experts and an unmatched network of accounting and finance professionals that have helped us grow, and now we can do the same for clients. This was a natural evolution as we look for new areas to add value for clients across their organizations.”

Through TalentConnect, PKF O’Connor Davies’ recruiting specialists share their human resources know-how with companies that require qualified personnel but may not have the time or resources to secure them, allowing business owners and executives to focus their efforts on operations and business development.

TalentConnect brings together businesses with key industry players – from CFOs to bookkeepers – including those who may not be actively searching but receptive to a move. Additional TalentConnect services include:

  •     Formulating job descriptions
  •     Advising on salaries and benefits
  •     Creating and posting job listings in online and print media
  •     Collecting and reviewing responses, cover letters and resumes
  •     Collaborating on candidate assessments

“It’s becoming more and more challenging for companies that lack a sizeable HR department to devote the time and energy needed to attract and retain the right talent,” said Brett Settles, PKF O’Connor Davies’ Human Resources Director. “Many options like headhunters or employment agencies simply aren’t economical. Our many years of experience in accounting and finance enables us to deliver more precise strategies and results for a more cost-effective solution.”
