Yes, of course. Our core strength is to match professionals with your needed profiles. With our help and consultancy, our customers define and select manpower resources as part of Obree's proven intake process. We actually recruit “on demand.” For dedicated teams, Obree proposes a shortlist of 3 top-candidates per profile (out of the 10 to 20 screened). Customers tell us that most of the short-listed candidates have the skills and experience requested; however, it allows them to select those that are the best cultural match based on face-to-face interviews. Perfect for team retention. Proposed candidates are willing to work for you as a customer already before they even join Obree
