Why should I hire a Focus consultant?
The reasons are many and varied. The key reason is that you will get a detailed, hard-working, focused individual with excellent analytical skills and perseverance for getting the job done. If our consultant works on your site you may experience a subtle workplace transformation toward greater tolerance, patience, and appreciation for others’ strengths and ideas.
Will we have to change how we do our work?
No. Our consultants are trained to work in today’s business environment. They understand the need to be flexible and adaptable and we provide ongoing support to assist them.
How will they get up-to-speed on our technology platforms and processes?
Whatever you typically provide in training any new team member, our consultant will require the same. We provide additional assistance if needed. If you haven’t added new team members for quite some time, we will work with you to devise a training program that will minimize disruption to your work flow and other team members.
What about learning our unique applications and data?
Our consultants will require whatever training you provide to any new team member. What will be unique is the different way our consultants assimilate the inter-relationships and patterns of systems and data. Focus consultants strive to gain a comprehensive, system-wide view of what they are working on, and many of them act like subject matter experts for the project they are working on.
We have a fast-paced environment where priorities change. Is this a problem?
No. Our assessment process looks for individuals who are well suited to fast-paced IT environments. We do a detailed fit analysis and assign our consultants to contracts in which they will thrive. We also provide ongoing support to ensure schedules and quality of work are met or exceeded.
Nothing is documented or, if it is, it’s out-of-date. Will we have to document everything before assigning tasks to our Focus consultant?
Not unless you would do it for any other new hire. Our consultants work with whatever is provided. If we feel efficiencies can be introduced, we will discuss them with you. We provide value-add processes to our clients when needed.
Will the Focus consultant be able to keep up with the workload?
Yes. You may find that our consultants will take time to ramp-up, but after that, they prove to maintain a higher level of productivity and engagement over time. We have no doubt they will meet or exceed your productivity expectations.
