Vince Virga, CEO of SkillStorm, an IT services firm providing managed project services, outsource solutions, strategic consulting and staff augmentation, was recently a guest speaker on a prominent business talk show on BlogTalkRadio — Live Passionately. Live Passionately is a weekly internet radio show hosted by John Barbar, a seasoned professional in the financial services sector. The purpose of the show is to bring remarkable value to entrepreneurs, business owners and other professionals. Virga’s radio interview focused on key elements of growing a business in a time of economic recovery such as focusing on training and development, building relationships and finding creative ways to attract new clientele.
“To me, building a good team around you is the key to success. When I founded SkillStorm in 2002, I set out to build a business, not a job and that involves growing and teaching your business skills to your team. Our company has been so successful because we surround ourselves with good people and provide them with the right tools for success. From the very beginning, our executive team set the vision and corporate culture of SkillStorm by establishing our core values. The key is having trust in your team and allowing them to go out and use the skills and tools you have provided them with to live up to your company’s standards,” said Virga.
One of the business growth initiatives discussed during the interview is the SkillStorm Program for Extreme Educational Development, also known as SPEED. This highly competitive training program gives ten candidates the opportunity to compete for Technical Recruiter positions with SkillStorm. Trainees that successfully complete the intense six-week training program are offered full-time positions in one of the company’s offices nationwide.
“This program is designed to bring out the best-qualified, highly motivated and competitive entry-level candidates. For us, it’s important to find people with the right kind of attitude; we will invest the time and money in providing them with skills training and the latest resources to help them become the best Technical Recruiters possible,” adds Virga.
