TalentBurst In Review: 2019

What an amazing year!

As a company, TalentBurst has always valued looking forward rather than backward. Keeping our eyes toward the future is how we’ve been able to innovate and become leaders in staffing, high-hazard payroll, the gig economy, employer of record services and other emerging businesses since TalentBurst was started in 2002.

However, we also know that it’s important to take a look back at the year that has passed, and make sure that you have more checks in the “Wins” column rather than the “Losses.”

We are happy to say that we can chalk up 2019 as big “W” for TalentBurst, our internal technical team continued to innovate and we are now able to process “instant payroll” for our employees. TalentBurst is among the first companies in the staffing industry to offer this payment option to all contractors.

Over the course of the year, we added over 30 new Fortune 500 customers to our list of valued customers. TalentBurst now works with almost a quarter of the Fortune 500. Our COO led our technical innovation by implementing and rolling out 7 new software products internally including Netsuite, Slack, Freshdesk, among several others. These technologies helped us build out the most advanced tech stack for our staffing, employer of record and high hazard payroll customers. 

We hope that our wins in 2019 will be directly responsible for our continued success in 2020 and beyond. 


Namrata Anand makes SIA “Global Power 150 Women In Staffing” List

Our Senior VP Namrata Anand was recognized by the Staffing Industry Analysts as one of the top leaders in staffing. We already knew that, of course, but we were thrilled when SIA announced it, and it couldn’t go to a more deserving person.

Namrata’s unmatched work ethic means she is involved with a lot of different projects around TalentBurst. Here she is specifically talking about our relationship with PROUnlimited, one of our valued MSP partners.

Awarded Supplier Of The Year by the The Greater New England Minority Supplier Development Council

We were awarded Supplier Of The Year by the The Greater New England Minority Supplier Development Council and this award from the GNEMSDC represents our commitment to running a company that supplies quality talent to our clients, amazing jobs to our jobseekers, and revenue and infrastructure to the Greater New England area.

Workforce Logiq Proven Performer Award

For the 4th year in a row, we were awarded the Proven Performer Award from Workforce Logiq. We’ve always valued our partnership with Workforce Logiq, and for them to recognize us for the 4th year running as a top provider of talent reminds us of the excellent work that our client team puts in everyday!

Uber Launches Gig Economy Job App Alongside TalentBurst

The gig economy is here to stay and TalentBurst is excited to be innovating in this brand new space with and industry leader like Uber. Uber launched their UberWorks Industrial Staffing app for their worker populations in Chicago. Not only are we happy to be part of a successful launch of a truly innovative product by a titan of the industry, we’re also happy that we can finally talk about the project and publically congratulate our staff that worked so hard to streamline the onboarding and management of Uber’s contingent workers.

TalentBurst’s 17 Year Anniversary!

We’d say something like “we can’t believe that it has already been 17 years” except that it is now 2020, and soon we will be celebrating our 18th year!

Allegis Global Solutions 2019 Strategic Partner

We celebrated with Allegis Global Solutions, when once again recognized TalentBurst as part of the top 1% of suppliers and partners for contingent workforce. Jamie Jacobs — our Director of Strategic Partnerships — said it best:

“We don’t pursue awards as a goal, but when you work with such an amazing and dedicated team the recognition that comes with awards like these serves as a validation of everyone’s hard work. Congratulations, TalentBurst team! And big thanks to Allegis Global Solutions for being an excellent partner year after year.”

5 Easy Steps To Start Your New Year Job Search Today

We’re coming up on a new year, which is usually the time of year that most of us try to make some sort of life change and stick with it for (at least) the next 12 months. These resolutions most commonly have to do with going to the gym, quitting a bad habit, or changing a job or career.
Unfortunately, these New Year’s resolutions don’t usually last, with only about 8% of people keeping those resolutions past January. The problem with waiting for a day like the 1st of January for a big change is that the impetus for that change is tied to a specific day, rather than something that will actually motivate you to keep the resolution.
TalentBurst wants to help change that. While we can’t motivate you to get the gym or cut back on snacks, we can help you get into a new job that might just change your perspective on everything – leading you to a healthier, happier, more lucrative 2018!
So instead of waiting for January to start the job hunt, let’s start together right now.
Yes, right now is the perfect time to start the job hunt. Bookmark this post, ask Siri to start a list, or write this down on an old fashioned piece of paper. Here are the 5 steps you need to take to get ahead of everyone else that will be looking for a new job opportunity come January.

1. Update your Resume and your LinkedIn Profile

This is your first step and the most essential thing to get you motivated. If you’ve been with your current job for a while, chances are you haven’t touched your resume or LinkedIn profile since you started. Updating your “paper” resume is essential, and you should always have it ready to send off to a potential hiring company. Once it is updated, save it to a PDF and email it to yourself, save it to DropBox or Google Drive, and keep it on a thumbdrive.
LinkedIn is also important to keep updated. If you don’t have a LinkedIn profile, this is essential and you should be doing this right now. If you are currently on LinkedIn and you are worried about profile updates being visible to your current employer, change your privacy settings so that these changes won’t be broadcast to a public feed. Keeping this profile current is good practice, even if you are happy in your current job.

2. Contact a TalentBurst Recruiter

Now that you have your resume and online profile up-to-date, you can let a recruiter know that you are open to new opportunities. Contacting a TalentBurst recruiter gets the ball rolling so they can find out what your qualifications are, what type of job you are looking for, and where you are willing to travel. TalentBurst recruiters can also look at your newly updated resume and make qualified suggestions based on their knowledge of what companies are looking for.

Contact a Recruiter

3. Follow Companies on Social Media

We all have Facebook (and if you didn’t before, you now have a LinkedIn account). Start following companies that work in the fields you are interested in. Even if you aren’t looking for a specific job with that company, they may have insights or connections that will pop up on your social feed while you are killing time on Facebook. Seek out the groups on LinkedIn that are specific to the type of work you are looking for — the more connections you make the more informed you will be on your job hunt.

4. Keep at it Everyday

Make your job hunt part of your daily routine. At breakfast, check in with your TalentBurst recruiter or take a quick scroll through LinkedIn or Facebook company pages that you are following. A new job won’t happen overnight, but keeping the momentum going everyday will make it happen much quicker. This is the important step that keeps you from falling into the 92% of people that don’t follow through on their resolutions.

5. Be Open to New Opportunities

This last one can seem daunting, but you wouldn’t be reading this if you weren’t ready to take the leap into something new. Your next position won’t be exactly the same as the one you have now, but that’s how you grow in your career. When a new job opportunity comes up, be sure to look at it from as many different perspectives as possible. Even if a position doesn’t feel like a 100% match, go on the interview anyway. You never know what you’ll learn about the job or who you will meet. No matter what happens on the job search, use it as a learning experience and open yourself up to the opportunities you may have overlooked in the past.
Don’t wait until after the holidays to start your job search. These 5 steps are an easy way to get yourself motivated to change your job and boost your career. We are rooting for you!

It Pays to Partner With An Employer of Record

You may have noticed that the term “Employer of Record” has been popping up more frequently among employers and providers of talent, and it can be confusing to figure out exactly what the term means in comparison to the services provided by the more traditional “staffing agency” or “payroll vendor.” The traditional definition of Employer of Record is:

a company or organization that is legally responsible for paying employees, including dealing with employee taxes, benefits, insurance, etc.

That defines the basic service, but a good Employer of Record is much more than just someone you hand your payroll duties off to. Partnering with an Employer of Record (EOR) is a smart business decision that creates a layer of protection for your business – mitigating common risks such as worker’s compensation and claim management issues that a company can inherit as it grows larger.

Identifying Hidden Risks

When a company makes a business decision to utilize contingent workers and independent contractors to manage the fluctuations in their workforce needs, they run the risk of these workers being incorrectly categorized by hiring managers and supervisors during the on-boarding process. That means any worker’s compensation claims or workplace injuries that may occur during the worker’s employment can cause OSHA and DOL audits and inspections, monetary risk due to increased worker’s compensation insurance premiums across your enterprise and also bad PR for the company. These type of audits, inspections and insurance issues can take several years to clear up, and if you run into multiple violations you begin to see why it is prudent to partner with a professional Employer of Record who will help mitigate the risk to your organization and provide guidance relative to contractor management.

How TalentBurst Can Help

TalentBurst is now one of the leading Employer’s of Record in the US and Canada and is an expert in providing Fortune 1000, mid-sized and start-up businesses with compliant and efficient Employer of Record Services. We handle every part of contingent worker management, which means you can focus on running your business smoothly with a solid labor platform supporting you.
At TalentBurst, we are fortunate to be able to work with companies that have recognized the risks that lie within their business. We help clients not only in the United States but also companies that require contractor compliance in international locations such as Canada, UK, Germany, France and India. If you would like to know more about how an Employer of Record can help your company mitigate risk and save money, please reach out to us.
