Scott Ragusa–Hiring Hero of the Week

No comments

Meet this week’s Hero of Hiring–Scott Ragusa of WinterWyman. As Chief Executive Officer, he leads the firm’s planning initiatives, chairs the executive team, and oversees WinterWyman’s strategic direction and daily operations. He also serves on the company’s board of directors. Under Scott’s leadership, more than 23,000 people were put to work in just the past decade, including more than 2,700 in 2018. This has contributed to consistent year-over-year revenue growth since the last recession, along with a 120% increase in the past decade. It should be no surprise that WinterWyman has received accolade upon accolade. The list includes an 11-time Boston Globe Top Places to Work winner, 16-time Boston Business Journal Largest Temporary Placement Firm awardee, 11-time Boston Business Journal Largest Executive/Contingent Search Firm awardee, 5-time Best of Staffing winner for both client and candidate excellence with NPS scores of 62.5% client (industry average 11%) and 55.1% candidate (industry average 24%).

Scott’s contributions to the greater good extend beyond the business world. He raised close to $25,000 as part of the 2018 American Cancer Society’s Real Men Wear Pink initiative, the top amount for the Boston chapter.

Thank you Scott for the heroic work you and your team do each day!

ABOUT THE HEROES OF HIRING

We’ve all heard it said that a company’s most important asset is its people. When we say we love a company, what we’re really saying is we love the work being done by the exceptional people in these organizations. Talented employees who do outstanding work are the secret ingredients that make their companies great. That’s why recruiting and hiring is so important. Each person involved in the hiring process is influencing the future of their company. These individuals are also impacting one of the most important aspects of people’s lives—their careers. The individuals who play a role in the hiring process are changing companies and lives, making hiring a heroic act.

The hiring heroism of a select group of people goes above and beyond. These unsung hiring heroes are making a lasting difference on a grand scale. That’s the reason for this distinction—the Hiring Hero of the Week. The hope in bestowing this honor is that people across the globe can celebrate and learn from these truly amazing human beings.

Want Better Results From Your Applicant Tracking System? Here’s Some Expert Advice

No comments

Concrete advice combined with some blunt commentary. That’s what you’ll hear in this conversation with Doug Coull, Founder and CEO of APS, the makers of SmartSearch. According to Doug, having a better ATS experience requires that staffing companies change their perspective on software selection. He also believes that the normal customer-vendor paradigm is ineffective and suggests a different approach. Plus he doesn’t hold back when he shares what he thinks is wrong with the software industry. Doug mentions a software selection guide in the podcast. You can request that here.
