As regional director of Specialized Recruiting Group, no one knows more about finding the right person for the right position than Bettye Taylor, especially when it comes to professionals. So when it came time to expand her own team, she did what she does best and found the perfect hire.
“We’re so pleased to welcome Mary Bowers to the SRG team,” Taylor said. As director, Bowers will run the day-to-day activities in OKC. And with 30 years of experience and her broad understanding of recruiting, marketing and overall business acumen, Bowers is the perfect addition.
Both believe that professional recruiting is a much different process than recruiting for other positions. “Most of the people we are looking for are currently working, so we must strategically identify and recruit the talent; we are finding people opportunities,” Bowers said.
The process can be a longer time investment as well, and it requires close communication with the client company and candidates. And with the ever-changing employment climate, the experienced SRG team can help clients maneuver through the competitive landscape.
“When it comes down to it, we are consultants,” Taylor said. “We have to consult with our clients and candidates because that is what they rely on us for. If you provide quality counsel, they will follow your advice. Consistent communication along with service is the key to this market, and time is of the essence.”
As the Specialized Recruiting Group continues to grow, Taylor will continue in her leadership position spending her time reaching out to people, earning trust and growing relationships throughout Oklahoma City.
