Every day, it is getting tougher for recruiters to build the workforce they need for their workplace to succeed. With growing setbacks during the pandemic, such as downsizing, navigating remote work, and lockdowns – companies were faced with a completely new way of operating. Additionally, a growing pain that has taken over the nation has been that of worker shortages. With more jobs open than people willing to take, businesses have been left to struggle with this new shift in employment trends.
Not all change is bad though. Change can be good if you learn how to navigate and welcome it with open arms and with the help of Edge, you can stay ahead of the curve with our unique staffing solutions.
Edge helps insurance agencies in the United States and Canada to build remote international teams of talented, trained, college-educated professionals. Not only this but Edge offers you this solution at a 70% less cost than your average employee. We follow a Talent as a Subscription model which means you only pay a flat monthly fee for an employee compared to the staggering amounts that add up when it comes to hiring locally.
Recruiting remote teams is the best-kept secret from the giants of Silicon Valley who have been partaking in this practice for many years to help manage their workload at a cost-effective rate. At Edge, we bring that secret to companies of all sizes.
Here’s how Edge will build your dream team
Screening & Hiring
You no longer have to worry about spending hours going through countless resumes for a single position. Instead, the HR department at Edge will do that for you. Every week we receive about 200 or more CVs but we still have a hiring rate of 1.5% which means that we go above and beyond to find the perfect fit for your company. Almost 98% of all our Edge ambassadors are college graduates and unless candidates fit our description of a perfect match, we do not go ahead with the recruitment process. Additionally, we handpick resumes of the candidates that we feel your agency needs and then we forward them to you. After your own selection from those resumes, we can set up your interview with them. With only the approval of your agency, those candidates are hired by Edge to work under your agency.
With Edge, it will only take 3-4 days to onboard your Ambassador or Ambassador team at your agency. Since we train all Ambassadors before they join your agency, they’re ready to take on your needs from day one. We equip them with all the necessary software, tools, and systems that you use before they start working with you.
Our training process includes learning about your agency through 1:1 sessions so that we’re able to tailor our training unique to your business. We also request a form from you that lists down all the important details regarding your phone provider, AMS (Agency Management System), chat apps, email provider, and carriers, to add to our training program.
Since many insurance agencies are unable to have their own HR department, Edge acts as an HR department for them. This means that we will look over any issue that you might face with an Ambassador. Additionally, if you require any further training, Edge takes care of that for you.
All Edge Ambassadors also sign a one-year contract, so that means there will be guaranteed retention. In the rare event that it doesn’t work out with your Ambassador, Edge replaces them with another one immediately and at zero additional cost. So, you never have to worry about having an absent team.
