CoDev is an offshore development outsourcing company that’s been around for over a decade, providing hundreds of companies with high quality talent. But exactly what goes on behind our talent screening process, and just how good or better is it compared to that of other recruitment companies?

We know we’re not your only option, but we also know that we’re the best at what we do. 

We’ve had over a decade of experience, employed thousands of IT professionals, and have hundreds of clients that continue to work with us. But if there’s one thing that really sets us apart, it’s our talent screening process. 

No other company has a talent screening process quite like ours. So let’s deep dive into CoDev’s screening process, and see why we’re different.

Quality At Its Core

Here at CoDev, we understand that finding the right talent is far more important than finding immediate talent, or the most affordable talent. That isn’t to say of course, that we work with constant delays or hike up our prices– far from it. We make sure our clients get the talent that they need, when they need it, and at a price they can afford. But at the center of our entire operation is quality– quality not just in the talent we are able to provide, but also in our service, our screening process, and beyond. 

Getting the talent you need immediately and at the best price is ideal, but these would be nothing without good quality: good quality service, and good quality talent. At CoDev, quality is a top priority from which everything else follows. We provide impeccable service and exceptional talent, using a screening process that’s been thoughtfully designed to select only the best. As a result, our clients get not just another addition to their team, but an exceptional performer that’s a perfect fit for their company. That’s not just our opinion, it’s feedback that’s come straight from our clients.

Tested Through Time

They say good things take time, and that certainly holds true for our process. Since our company’s inception more than ten years ago we’ve constantly refined our screening process to make sure our methods stay relevant and effective.

Our process involves only four “simple” steps– simple for our clients, but detailed and thorough under the hood. From the get-go we make sure to get pinpoint precision on our client’s staffing needs by asking the right questions, and guiding our clients every step of the way. After our kickoff call with a client, the heavy lifting begins: we scour through our selection of highly qualified candidates, checking every resume, every test score, every profile, and work sample to make sure we find just the right match. Meanwhile, our clients can simply sit back and focus on their business.

A Broad Talent Pool Within Your Reach

Now you might be thinking, “What if the talent I need isn’t in your current lineup of available people?” 

Part of our commitment to quality means that we leave no stone unturned, so as we’re looking through our lineup of active and available team members, we’re also searching through our broad recruiting database that spans the entire Philippines. Our five offices based in various cities all over the country means our talent pool reach is vast, with a heavy focus on the metro cities of the country.

Once found, initially assessed by our team, and selected, each candidate goes through language and coding assessments. They are also tasked to create an introductory video– a feature that is uncommon with most other recruitment companies. It is essentially a pre-recorded video interview where the candidate answers a few relevant questions, and allows clients to e-meet each candidate without having to talk directly to them. This gives clients an idea of which candidates are best suited for their project in terms of technical expertise and English communication skills. 

After the client has selected their top candidates based on the in-depth profiles, assessments, and introductory videos we’ve sent, we then set up a live, virtual interview for the client with each candidate. Of course, we’ll continue to make sure it is as easy as possible for our clients by providing practical recommendations for conducting these interviews.

Need More Reasons?

We definitely put a whole lot of work into our screening and recruiting process, and it produces plenty of benefits for our clients:

  1. It’s Easy – All the arduous work of sourcing and screening talent is up to us, all you have to do is pick the candidates you like.
  2. It’s Fast – Clients are often matched with the right talent in as little as one week, with connections made within a month from the kickoff call.
  3. It’s Flexible – Our screening process can be customized based on each client’s requirements. You can customize your candidates’ testing either by sending us your own custom test, or picking from our coding task library.
  4. It’s Thorough – We have dedicated recruiters sourcing and screening candidates per role, and we make sure to tick every box, every step of the way.
  5. It’s Proven – We’ve been in business for over a decade, and in that time have served thousands of clients and employed even more highly qualified professionals. 
  6. It’s More Affordable – Hiring with us is actually cheaper than you’d expect– by opting for offshore development outsourcing you get access to exceptionally talented individuals at half the price you’d normally pay for local talent. 
  7. It Gives More Value – For one flat fee every month, you’re getting more than just perfectly-matched talent in your team. One consistent monthly fee will cover everything from your talent’s wages, benefits, taxes, hardware and software needs, training needs– and most importantly, your peace of mind knowing your talent is stable, secure, and satisfied.

So while we may not be your only option, we are arguably one of the best (if not the best!) options you’ve got. Think there’s still something missing? Why not get in touch with us and let us know about your specific staffing needs? We look forward to meeting and working with you!
