Recruiting Vendor or Recruiting Partner?


Do you ever sense that your recruiter views his work as just a job? Can you call or email them outside the usual 9 to 5, Mon-Fri and expect a prompt response? What happens when a standard project suddenly goes non-standard?

HERE’S A QUICK STORY TO ILLUSTRATE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A RECRUITING VENDOR AND A PARTNER WHO TAKES FULL OWNERSHIP OF THE PROJECT:


1


Recently one of our international research partners discovered their previous day's results in "Country A" indicated the need for significant messaging revisions for a Toronto study that was due to begin at 11 am.

2


Vital Connections President Andrew Udell had already anticipated the need to be at his desk early — something his clients have come to expect as the way Andrew routinely does business.

3


So at 6 am he was able to respond promptly to the urgent emails he received. Andrew quickly loaded up the volume of revisions, rushed to the nearest copy center, charmed his way to the front of the line and got the changes made in time to have them on site by 9 am.

4


As the new packets were being assembled, it was discovered that a projector necessary for the interviews was missing its power source.

5


To add to the challenge, the piece of equipment in question was from an obscure manufacturer and used a non-standard adapter.

6


Andrew was able to locate the correct adapter and get it back to the facility in time to begin as scheduled.

High Quality Service


If your recruiter doesn't routinely provide that level of service, give us a call, and let's talk about making Vital Connections your go-to recruiting partner in Canada.

About Andrew Udell

Not many market research recruiters can claim they grew up in the business. Andrew Udell did, though. Andrew's mother owns the successful quantitative research company Canadian Viewpoint, where Andrew got his start as a teenager.

Andrew has a strong entrepreneurial streak and eventually he struck out on his own as an independent recruiter.

Forming a company was the next logical step. So in (date) Andrew started Sharper Insights, a general marketing recruitment firm.

Over the years, Andrew began specializing exclusively in qualitative medical market research. He's amassed a long and growing list of project managers, researchers, and moderators who have become raving fans of Andrew's skill and dedication.

Vital Connections

Sharper Insights has been renamed Vital Connections to better reflect the company's position as Canada's premier recruiting agency focused solely on supporting qualitative medical market research.

What hasn't changed is Andrew's “Relentless Recruiting" philosophy or his commitment to doing whatever it takes to make sure your project is successful.

Give Andrew's team a call today, and find out why his clients consider him their first and only choice when they need a strong recruiter for their Canadian medical market research projects.
