Our 6 step process

Our proven 6-step methodology incorporates sourcing, screening, interviewing, selecting, client and talent engagement and onboarding. Here’s what’s involved in each step.

Sourcing

We source only the most talented individuals from our large, highly-curated and vetted talent pool. We also work to understand the scope of work you need, as well as your culture, values and ethics, so we can find the optimal talent match for your organisation.

Screening

Our stringent screening and interview mechanisms mean we only present resources to you who we believe will deliver outstanding work, be a cultural fit, and make a healthy contribution to your business’s success in the digital realm.

Onboarding

We make sure all your onboarding requirements are met quickly and comprehensively before our digital resource is due to start working. With thorough preparation, we make sure they have everything in place to hit the ground running on day one.

Replacing

We’re proud of the fact that our talent is happy and supported, which is evident in our low staff turnover rate. But if talent does need to be replaced, we’ll do everything we can to replace the resource with as little disruption to your business as possible.

Contracting and Billing

A Master Services Agreement (MSA) generally governs the relationship between your organisation and our team. While our contracts run for a minimum period of 6 months, we suggest a 12 month contract to allow our resources to fully immerse themselves in your business and projects.

Resource Management

We stay connected with our digital resources by conducting structured monthly one-on-one meetings with each individual, and using tracking tools and feedback mechanisms to anticipate any potential roadblocks before they happen.

We’ve worked with some of the largest listed companies in South Africa, including three of the top four banks, a large majority of their subsidiaries, and several listed insurers, credit issuers and global technology brands. Over time, we’ve developed leading-edge AI technology that we provide to our clients as an additional resource for their digital transformation journey.
