Talpro, Inc., a provider of vendor management services for outsourced and contingent staffing, announced today that it was selected by the Partner Talent Program of Cisco Systems, Inc. to be part of its Strategic Recruitment Solution and its exclusive provider of contingency and contract vendor management solutions for Cisco's US and Canadian Channel Partners.
Through this relationship, Talpro will manage a list of approved IT staffing vendors who have been pre-qualified to work directly with Cisco Channel Partners. These vendors will provide Channel Partners with a constant exposure to Cisco trained talent pools, increasing efficiencies in time and cost when filling critical positions.
Eden Britt, Global Lead of Partner Talent Attraction for Cisco says, "Talpro will enable Cisco Partners to gain access to a number of preferred suppliers across the US specializing in networking and sales recruitment. This solution will offer reduced agency rates, enabling companies to save up to 40% of regular agency fees, combined with the efficiencies of full US agency coverage and access to hundreds of thousands of candidates."

By using Talpro, Cisco Partners will be able to streamline their hiring process and reduce their time and costs to hire immediately. All job postings are communicated to the preferred staffing agencies from a single point within Talpro's system. Cisco Partners will no longer need to negotiate multiple contracts with multiple agencies. Once posted, Cisco Partners can quickly and easily see which vendors are working the jobs, how many candidates have been submitted by each vendor, and where each candidate stands in the hiring process."
