No one understands the evolution towards Cloud, Data Management, Enterprise Mobility, Cyber Security and Social Media within the IT sector better than we do. In today’s ever-changing technological world, organizations need trusted partners to provide specialized IT skills. More than ever, dependency on skilled consultants is essential to the success of your business. Because your IT infrastructure can frequently change, IT staffing requirements also can change. As a result, Human Capital solutions are no longer a luxury but a necessity. ICS understands the nature of your IT staffing requirements and has organized a network of highly qualified consultants who offer an impressive inventory of skills including hardware, software, operating systems, databases, programming languages, and numerous IT methodologies.
The healthcare industry needs professionals in the key areas of Security, Big Data, and Program Management. Electronic health records, digital and wireless medical devices, healthcare reform, and an aging population all point to healthcare as a stable, long-term choice for IT careers. New advancements in technology are changing the way patients and health providers interact with the healthcare system. These technologies accelerate the flow and availability of personal data, empower and engage patients in their care, and can help identify safety issues or errors before they occur. Data management, security, and the evolution towards electronic health records (EHR) are all driving the need for specialized professionals to fill these critical roles.
ICS is committed to providing IT and Healthcare industry leaders with professional, experienced talent with connections to technologists and clinicians across the globe.
ONETeam is an ICS discipline that seamlessly integrates our employees with our clients’ staff to such a degree that there is no longer a sense of “us” and “them.” To achieve this level of assimilation, we perform extensive candidate profiling, then rank the candidate’s overall assessment score against our client’s requirement. We understand the client’s corporate culture, and can therefore assess what kind of employee will be a good fit. And the benefits of a strong match include better retention and increased productivity. We listen. We deliver.
ONETeam was founded during the 2010 U.S. Decennial Census project, which required the collaboration of geographically dispersed teams, working on a short timeline, to deliver a successful product. ICS’s Human Capital division worked closely with the IT staff to determine what kinds of services could be of value to these teams while they worked on site. Some examples included bringing HR staff to the site, weekly catered get-togethers, and recognition ceremonies, used to promote of community—or ONETeam.
Our approach to ONETeam leads to exceptional performance results and allows us to build deeper relationships with our clients. ICS is now expanding its offering to include commercial clients as well.
Our Unique Screening Process
When screening candidates, experience is considered a primary requirement; however, a successful applicant’s background must be augmented with relevant education and training, excellent references, and effective communication skills.
Three or more staff members interview potential employees, with at least one interviewer having the technical skills directly related to the job requirement. A candidate’s résumé and references are researched prior to finalizing a recommendation for hire. Once approved, the candidate will officially be made an offer and will begin at the earliest possible date.
Our Human Capital Management Practice
Our Human Capital Management (HCM) staff provides the full range of services to build high-performing project teams, with whom they work closely to create performance and career development objectives for each member. Opportunities to invest in skills development are identified, and appropriate training classes are scheduled to meet the needs of the individual. Technical mentors work with employees to ensure they continue to grow professionally and strengthen their areas of expertise. Our recruiters have a comprehensive knowledge of recruiting processes and best practices. We utilize best-fit staffing and HR practices.
ICS offers competitive, market-driven salaries that are necessary to attract and retain skilled employees. To remain a competitive industry participant, we establish rates of pay appropriate to both the worker’s technical skills and the geographic region where the work is performed.
We offer an Incentive Compensation Plan whereby employees are recognized for excellence within their respective roles or for going above and beyond their designated duties. These rewards may take the form of bonuses, cash awards, or salary increases. Furthermore, an incentive structure like ours directly benefits project work by motivating our personnel to maintain quality performance and help achieve the project objectives. Additionally, our highly competitive benefits program recognizes the diverse needs and goals of each employee. This comprehensive program includes health care with a preferred provider, dental care, life insurance, accidental death and dismemberment insurance, short/long-term disability insurance, and a 401(k) retirement plan.
Our Database Grows and So Does the Demand for Great Talent
In anticipation of business growth, ICS continues to build a highly qualified staffing pool of professionals, thereby minimizing the need for outside personnel resources. Recruiting is ongoing, and candidates are selected not only on the basis of their skillset, but also for their fit with the client’s culture, potential for growth, and professional goals.
Thus, we maintain a personnel database of over 5,000 qualified professionals that details areas of expertise, education, and years of experience for both current employees and pre-screened candidates.
