Building Long-Term Relationships on Performance and Client Satisfaction

APP-Blog.jpg#asset:4565







Our FGP team members work daily in more than 20 different industry sectors to find the top talent for C-level searches, middle management acquisition and temporary placements. We work with clients ranging from Fortune 50 companies to medium family-owned companies and entrepreneurial startups, as well as government agencies and nonprofit organizations in 44 states and 14 countries.

Staying current on trends and challenges in various industries is an everyday task for our recruiters and hiring consultants, and part of what sets FGP apart from other recruiting firms, according to many of our clients.

For example, we’ve seen a tremendous shift in 2018 in the healthcare marketplace as hospital mergers and acquisitions continue at unprecedented levels. As the dynamics of this industry change, we must alter our recruiting strategies to accommodate a market that’s been flooded with well-qualified executives and mid-level management candidates. 

One of our clients in the healthcare space is American Physician Partners. APP provides emergency department and hospital medicine management services to hospitals and health systems nationwide. According to APP, hospitals choose APP as their clinical outsourcing partner because of its reputation for recruiting and retaining patient-focused physicians who drive clinical, operational, service and financial results. APP partners with FGP for the same reason, according to Buddy Bacon, Senior Vice President & Chief Operating Officer of American Physician Partners.

“I’ve had the pleasure of working with the FGP Healthcare team since 2017, “Bacon said. “They’ve done a great job at helping us secure key members of our management team such as: Executive Director, Hospitalist Medicine; multiple Regional Vice Presidents; and various corporate level positions.

“FGP is one of those rare companies that can form a strong partnership with a fast-growing organization, like American Physician Partners, by remaining fluid and adaptable to our needs. I would not hesitate recommending FGP to anyone who’s looking for a firm that delivers results and goes above and beyond the call of duty to meet their client’s expectations.”

Understanding industry movements and the culture of individual companies is just as important when working with flexible staffing solutions. While a company may need additional talent only temporarily, they still need qualified candidates that fit with the company’s culture and work environment.

One of the specialty building product industry's most dynamic players, Guardian Building Products (GBP), operates 30 branch offices across the United States enabling it to deliver innovative, market-focused products and services to more than 5,000 end users. FGP partners with Guardian on its temporary staffing needs.

“FGP is the only staffing service that we use because they work hard to understand our open positions and respond quickly with multiple qualified candidates for every role, said Mary Jo Spitzmiller Allen, GBP Human Resources Manager.

“They also treat their temporary employees better than anyone I've ever experienced before,” Allen added. “They regularly check in with the employee and even bring them congratulations gifts when we hire them. FGP is the best service around, and I've worked with many.”

FGP’s goal as a business partner is to develop long-term relationships that are built and maintained with performance and client satisfaction. With 94 percent of our business coming from repeat clients, we believe we are achieving that goal.
