President of national technical writing staffing firm, Writing Assistance, offers advice when hiring contract workers in new video.MINNEAPOLIS — February 8, 2007 — www.writingassist.com – Writing Assistance President, Scott Hartmann, is offering Human Resources (HR) departments the need to know information when hiring specialized technical writing staff.Hartmann, who has led his technical writing staffing firm to a 60% increase in revenue year to date over 2005, is helping HR departments understand how to ensure a successful hire.”Using a niche or specialized staffing service is often more efficient than working with a generalized staffing firm when hiring specialty staff like technical writers,” said Scott Hartmann, President of Writing Assistance. “Our customers, when working with our technical writers, have experienced a decreased ramp up time, hires require less supervision and take less time away from subject matter experts and staff. It is important to hire the right person as it is very expensive to hire the wrong person.”Hartmann’s advice to Human Resource departments hiring contract writers includes implementing the following qualifications:
- Subject Matter Experience – Hire someone with subject/industry experience to reduce the amount of time it will take to get him/her up to speed on the project.
- Tool Experience – Experience with the appropriate tools will increase efficiency at the onset of a new project, saving you time and money. The shorter the contract, the more important tool experience becomes.
- Contracting Experience – Experienced contract workers are skilled interviewers who can efficiently garner the information they need from your team.
Taking the time to research and hire the right person for the job benefits companies by increasing the accuracy and efficiency of the project and decreases the likelihood that the company will be dissatisfied with the work done.Writing Assistance is a national staffing firm that specializes in freelance writers in the following areas:-training development-technical writing-web content writingWatch Scott Hartmann explain the importance of working with a niche staffing firm when hiring specialized writing staff in this new video: http://www.recruiterlife.com/interviews/scott_hartmann.aspAbout Writing AssistanceWriting Assistance, Inc., a leader in contract technical writing, copy writing, web content specialists and training developers is dedicated to the proper placement of contract writers nationwide.
