We can apply the assessment methods and tools we’ve found work well, or adapt to your methodology. Providing you with superb support that conserves your resources, time and money is our goal.

Our Family Matters
The key to OverDrive’s success has been its ability to recruit and retain top talent over long periods of time. Unlike so many support staffs with high turnover, the annual turnover of our staff is less than 10% annually, and that due to family emergencies or illnesses.
Talented people wait in line to be on our teams knowing something of our faith and family-oriented culture, upward opportunities and some of the great clients we serve. Our people are also carefully screened and tested in advance of being assigned to your account. They often have worked on other OverDrive accounts or are known by our senior staff as top performers. This gives us the opportunity to know in advance their capabilities and personal style before putting them into a client engagement.
In addition to recruiting known high performers, we work hard to place them where they will be most productive and happiest. This explains in part the great loyalty our folks have toward OverDrive, the lack of staff turnover and the longevity of our Client engagements.
OverDrive’s very low cost coupled with our extremely low turnover provides our clients with a very real competitive advantage over their competitors whose growth is limited by repeated re-recruiting and training of staff.
So whether you need sourcing and screening or something more, we will provide you with dramatic savings of time and money, as well as superior results.
With experienced HR professionals on our management team, we use best in class methods with a keen and tailored client focus to fully understand your company’s culture and develop the appropriate job description, title, and compensation range. We identify, analyze, and investigate candidates based on position requirements, personality traits, competencies and capabilities.
