Rochester, NY, February 11, 2019 — SMP, award-winning IT provider serving the Northeast US, announced today that it will be adding Staffing Services to its expert offerings of IT solutions and services.
Through its 20+ years in the IT industry, SMP has seen the IT skills shortage exacerbate business challenges and impede forward momentum. To help address these skills shortages in our customers’ organizations, SMP has recently hired a recruiter who will assist in understanding the skills needed, research and vet technology talent to provide qualified and available candidates that can help fill the skills gaps our customers are facing.
Jackie Van Laeken, Recruiting Specialist, started at SMP in early February, bringing several years of experience in recruiting in the IT and legal industries. Her experience spans both agency and corporate recruiting, and includes leveraging search engine optimization, databases and cutting-edge techniques to source highly-qualified talent, research market trends, and facilitate on-boarding and integration initiatives. Ms. Van Laeken will assist SMP in their internal hiring needs, as well as staff augmentation needs for SMP’s customers to fill their skills gaps.
“Our new IT Staffing Services, led by Jackie, allows SMP to address a need in the industry. With our breadth of technology experience, SMP knows what competencies to look for in a candidate,” comments Peter Allen, SMP COO. “But finding qualified and skilled IT professionals is only half the challenge. At SMP we are extremely focused on finding the right personality fit for our customers’ cultures. With decades of experience in hiring technology professionals, we know how important personality and fit matter to both the employee and the organization.”
