Speaker: Tommy Jones, Head of Military and Diversity Recruiting, Verizon

What challenges were you facing that Velocity helped you overcome?

Tommy Jones: one of the challenges velocity has helped us with is, over the course of the last seven or eight years, we've had peaks of requisitions being dropped on our team, where the recruiter req load was extremely high. In these cases, we reached out to Velocity and they were able to quickly jump in -- Understand exactly what we're looking for, go out and find that talent and then really help us, minimize our time-to-fill which ultimately helped us increase revenue for the organization (Verizon).

What have been the greatest benefits of working with the Velocity team?

Tommy Jones: One of the greatest benefits of working the Velocity is the customer service and the professionalism that each and every one of their employees gives to our organization. I feel like it's a true partnership when you're working with them. They take a lot of pride in the work that they do and then the talent that they produce. So they're not just going through the motions -- they're actually acting on behalf of our organization, and really take a lot of pride in it. And that's something that is really beneficial to the representation of our organization and, and how we're branded out in the market.

If you had to tell someone why they should work with Velocity - what would you say?

Tommy Jones: If you're looking for an organization that could find top talent and bring them to your organization, or your recruiters are overloaded with requisitions, this is the organization you want; They're cost effective -professional - The customer service is amazing. And you'll get the quality of work that you're looking for. And the recruiters that you already have on your team, they'll just be an extension of your organization.
