PREP Intl is prepared to help you manage risks while reducing the cost of hiring and recruiting. In today’s demanding and challenging times to be competitive, you need people with unique and specialized skills to get the job done right, done on time and done on budget. PREP Intl works with a variety of energy companies who create, service, repair, distribute, generate or transmit energy. We know the job skills needed for system operators or engineers tasked to keep the lights on or construct and maintain power plants.
At PREP Intl, we believe there are good business reasons to aggressively pursue only star-caliber talent. Your business needs to make the right choice the first time.
We believe there is little to no room for error in hiring new people.
Early retirement and downsizing has left companies weak in the area of job experience.
PREP Intl is the answer. You need candidates with a proven track record who are prequalified to meet your needs. We provide PREQUALIFIED READY EMPLOYEES FOR POWER.
Hiring mistakes can be very costly.
Turnover per hire typically costs one and a half to three times annual salary. With costs of business going up and revenue stagnating, “near miss” hiring is too expensive. On average the cost of a hiring mistake can be as much as $250,000 to $350,000.
Not only is replacing retirees with experienced people increasingly difficult but losing critical employees to competitors further decimates your internal pool of candidates.
PReP Intl has taken the guess work out of hiring and provides candidates matched to your environment and ready to fill critical needs reducing your cost per hire.
Losing key people leaves your company at risk of being out of compliance, could possibly lead to outages, could be the source of negative publicity and lead to an inability to advance reasonable and needed rate cases. As budgets are also being cut in training and education, having trained personnel ready to fill empty system operator positions is increasingly difficult. PReP Intl can reduce your risk in three ways:
Compliance Risks – Creating Affirmative Action, OFCCP, or other faux pas – PReP Intl provides candidates already prequalified to meet your needs.
Alpha Risks – PReP Intl knows or can determine the best profile for an employee with your company. We screen all candidates using the same criteria and help you reduce the risk of hiring the wrong person.
Beta Risks – PReP Intl offers you prepared and ready candidates so you never miss out on hiring someone great.
With no margin for error in hiring, companies need excellence in their selection processes and PREP Intl’s comprehensive evaluation of both your critical positions and our candidates makes good sense. We reduce your time-to-hire.
The process has two important elements:
PREP Intl creates a success profile for your open positions based on your current high performing employees. We generate a profile based on successful behaviors, cultural fit factors and measurable performance results. PREP Intl identifies what value-added qualities each candidate must have and pre-determines what attributes are needed to be mirrored in your new employees.
PREP Intl applies the same comprehensive screening and hiring strategy to our candidates. We utilize 360 degree interviewing practices and ask peers, superiors and subordinates too meet with candidates to uncover depth and breadth of functional expertise and fit factors. Using multiple face-to-face interviews, in depth reference checking and assessment instruments, we evaluate candidates on hard and soft performance success factors that may be needed for key roles.
PREP Intl’s effective talent strategy is a good business strategy. Our extensive recruiting, screening, and testing process means we can find the “best fit” for almost any energy industry position. PREP Intl understands the intricacies of the energy and utilities industry. We can match highly skilled, qualified people with a wide variety of positions in today’s power industry. You can trust PREP Intl to find the right people to fill the voids on your team, from entry level to senior staff.
The energy industry is changing dramatically!
As energy technology and Smart Grid revolutionize the way organizations manage the dynamics of generation, transmission and distribution while assuring compliance with ever-evolving regulations and power markets, energy organizations that reexamine and redefine their talent management systems will do better adapting to change.
