King of Prussia, PA – This month marks Xelerate’s 10th year in business, providing clients with unparalleled recruitment outsourcing services.
Realizing the limitations in the industry’s traditional service models, Emily V. Biscardi, Founder of Xelerate, saw an opportunity to deliver a service that provided more value to clients. Traditional recruiting services didn’t address the need for recruiting processes and methodologies which are critical to the success of hiring good talent at a reasonable cost.
To this day, Xelerate demonstrates a unique consultative approach. Biscardi explains, “We’re not to placing ‘bodies’ and conducting transactions, but rather making sure our clients are hiring the right people, using best practices.”
In 2008, Xelerate faced the challenge of an economic downturn, inspiring the team to develop alternative solutions to meet the new market. Xelerate launched Ready Access Recruiting to support clients hiring in smaller quantities. This decision propelled the company forward, introducing them to more clients, in a variety of industries. Biscardi states, “Ready Access Recruiting provides our clients a low commitment, low cost way to begin working with Xelerate and still experience high-touch service. Once clients experience our value and how differently we provide service than the traditional recruiting models, they continue to turn to us for their hiring needs.”
Another significant step for the company was the promotion of Kelly Jensen to Chief Operating Officer. Through Kelly’s leadership, Xelerate’s customer retention has never been stronger. Jensen states, “I am surrounded by the best and brightest recruiting team that is focused and concentrated on customer service and results. They work as a team, building on their capabilities, and sharing their expertise which creates a dynamic and vibrant culture.”
Xelerate’s team continues to gain recognition for their accomplishments as leaders and consultants in business and in human resources.
Senior Talent Acquisition Partner, Carmelita DiPretoro comments, “I thrive on the challenges and collaboration of our environment. Our culture enables everyone to share their strengths and ideas, which affirms our entrepreneurial spirit. I am fortunate to be part of a respected group of professionals who are empowered to deliver exceptional results for our clients.”
Looking forward, the organization plans to leverage Ready Access Recruiting to expand their work with larger companies and to expand geographically. But first, they will take a moment to celebrate Xelerate’s 10th Anniversary reflecting on the company’s accomplishments and milestones.
