Our approach in servicing client companies and hiring managers is focused around a specific set of engagement opportunities. The primary and secondary engagement opportunities that are centric to the service offerings of Centurion are:

MANAGEMENT CONSULTING

We service our clients with time-learned best practices to ensure their organization's collective success by delivering coaching, management consulting, and training services for the professional services industry.

Using research, collaborative analysis, and advisement, we help make our clients lives better in raising their businesses performance more effectively and efficiently.  Over the course of the engagement, we focus consistently on 5 Key questions:  Who, What, Why, When, and Where, then ensure valuable guidance with How and How Much in the implementation.

Through a combination of assessment and/or development, we offer relevant insight, guidance, and solutions so our clients can establish the right approach for their organization.

STAFF AUGMENTATION

 

Whether a client is looking to hire one contingent worker or a handful while maintaining overall control and management of the project, Centurion has the flexibility and scalability to meet these requirements.  We work with the organization's leaders to fully define the role of the individual with regard to skill qualifications necessary to succeed, but we take it one step further by delineating the organizational fit that would be ideal for a successful candidate in that role.  We do this by collaborating with the client manager to determine what type of personality and specific traits would work best in the company's environment and team culture.

Armed with this detailed information, our recruiting team sets out to find the best possible matches for the opportunities.  After a relentless screening process, starting from sourcing potential applicants, to extensive behavioral interviewing, to complete validation of all information and experience collected, the most viable candidates are sent for review to the client team.  Once a prospect is identified through the interview process, Centurion handles the closing and onboarding of the consultant to deliver them to the client.  We then follow up with our contractors, aka Centurions, through a well-defined touch-point strategy to ensure the engagement is optimal for all parties.

DIRECT HIRE

Today's IT, consulting and professional services market is extremely competitive. Hiring managers often struggle to find top talent to fill their key business initiatives.  Often, these leaders want to keep this knowledge in-house and hire some resources on a direct placement to their fulltime employment.  To do this, Centurion partners with those decision makers to understand their needs, the company's technical environment and most importantly, the culture of their team and corporate culture in order to find the optimal match for their requirements to deliver a long-term solution.

If you would like to augment your internal staff, let us do the work for you by locating and bringing the top talent in the marketplace directly to you.


 

CONTRACT-TO-HIRE

Flexible hiring model designed to afford our clients and consultants time to evaluate the possibility of full time employment.

In today's market, companies must have a diverse strategy of hiring employees - contingent workers, direct placements and contract-to-hire.  The so-called "try before you buy" option is a popular one due to both consultant and client get to experience working together on a contractual basis before either makes a long-term commitment.  Additionally, it is often a cost-effective way for the end-user to onboard a permanent employee by deferring benefits and other fulltime employee costs until the contract duration is complete while ensuring that the individual is a strong cultural fit for the organization and likelihood of extended tenure with the company is high. 

When Centurion brings on a consultant intended to roll over to the client's payroll permanently after a set period of time, further steps are taken to assure the success of this transition.  In staff augmentation positions, the emphasis is placed on the technical fit over the organizational match; however, in contract-to-hire assignments, the priority shifts to the personality and culture suitability of the candidate.  It's not to say that the skill requirements are any less important because they are extremely relevant, although leveraging a complementary personality and company fit will go a long way to ensure a lasting solution.


 

PAYROLL SERVICES

Centurion can be the employer of record for your information technology and business professional contingent contractors while delivering cost savings and diversity spend reporting.

Most organizations engage temporary and contingent contractors that service a variety of labor categories.  These temporary professional contractors provide a great service to our clients allowing for flexible management of staff and support.  Considering the engagement time is limited, ensuring proper governance and classification can be challenging.  Centurion assists our clients in providing scalability process ease in managing a contingent workforce.
