Introducing Apex’s Elite Candidate Program November 2017 The rapid advancement of technology has led to a shortage of skilled workers, driving more and more employers to seek assistance from staffing firms to find skilled IT professionals. This dynamic market has our clients asking ‘how do we know we are getting the best talent for our specific needs?' Choosing a staffing partner shouldn’t mean compromising the level of talent clients receive, it should enhance it. To meet the ever-changing needs of our clients, we developed a higher level screening program to identify candidates with specialized skills. This program, called the Apex Elite Candidate Program, takes our existing skill focused screening one step further. In 2017, Apex screened over 7,000 candidates, with 57% of those candidates receiving certification as Apex Elite Candidate submissions. On average, Apex Elite Candidates are 35% more likely to be selected by our clients. Our Apex Elite Candidate Program is available to any of our clients.
