A large U.S.-based public accounting firm was staffing up to meet the increased demand for large-scale audit engagements in several metropolitan areas throughout the country. In addition to its internal recruiting team, the firm was working with a group of large national and regional staffing firms but was having difficulty finding enough high-quality assurance contractors (Seniors and Managers), particularly at a price point that would allow them to hit company margin targets.
With audit busy season rapidly approaching, the firm was looking for a scalable solution that would enable them to quickly find the needed talent, contain costs, assist with efficiently managing its contract labor force, and set them up for repeated success during future busy seasons. Rather than engaging yet another traditional staffing agency, the firm decided to try PeopleCaddie’s “talent cloud for the emerging gig economy.”
Within 3 months, PeopleCaddie became the firm’s top supplier of assurance contractors nationwide, and during the following busy season, PeopleCaddie outperformed its closest competitor by 20 placements to 1.
With the support of PeopleCaddie, the firm was able to significantly increase assurance busy season revenue nationwide and expand market share while decreasing hourly contract labor costs by 20%.
