Finding applicants who will drive your organization’s success is a full-time job. We’ve made it our business to stay on top of today’s competitive market by building top-notch networks of talent and leading the way in recruiting and hiring in the Portland metro area.
At Boly:Welch, we know what truly empowers a person to accomplish great things in their chosen field isn’t necessarily defined by a single sheet of paper. We take time to connect with job seekers and understand who they are (off the page) and what they’re looking for — not just professionally, but as people navigating work alongside dynamic personal lives.
Similarly, we invest time and curiosity in getting to know your needs as an employer. Your pain points, goals, and company culture are all impacted by the people who make up your organization. When Boly:Welch makes a great match, we’re not just filling your open roles. We’re helping businesses build more cohesive teams, driven by shared goals and values, empowering growth for all.
We offer four flexible hiring models to get top talent in your open roles.
We source from 100% of the market to find your new employees.
We’re not just proud of the matches we make, we guarantee them.
Should an employee fall shy of your expectations, we will extend our comprehensive (and highly unique to the industry) 12-month prorated replacement guarantee that offers 100% protection for the first 90 days.
Direct-hire placements are made using a contingency model with no cost to you until a final candidate is selected. Fees are based on a percentage of annual salary, and invoices issued upon the employee’s start date, with net 10-day terms to ensure guarantee.
Try a prospective employee on the Boly:Welch payroll.
While on our payroll, your Temp-to-Hire employees are eligible for a variety of Boly:Welch benefits! Learn more here.
Temp-to-hire service is not covered by our 12-month prorated replacement or 90-day guarantee; time spent in the position serves as a “working guarantee” period. Should you decide to convert the employee before the pre-determined duration, we’ll work with you to determine a conversion fee appropriate for the circumstance.
The bill rate associated with this hiring model includes the pay rate, employer costs, and recruitment fees.
Here for your short-term needs!
This option is great for covering parental leave, supporting work load peaks, or when you’re in a crunch to deliver projects on a deadline.
Our recruitment process for Contract Workers is just as thorough as our other hiring models; we’re here to provide top talent for your temporary needs.
From one-day to multi-month assignments, Contract Workers are Boly:Welch employees, on our payroll, with all taxes, benefits, and costs associated with being the employer of record. Boly:Welch pays all Contract employees on a weekly basis. An authorized client representative will be asked to sign the weekly timecard to certify work performed.
The associated bill rate includes the candidate’s take-home pay rate, employer cost, and recruitment fees. Should you choose to add a Boly:Welch Contract employee to your payroll (we get it, our candidates are great!), a fee will be calculated as appropriate to the situation.
A client-centered approach that ensures you’ll have our full attention.
Our experienced team of consultants work on an exclusive basis, with a limited number of assignments at any given time. This team is engaged in all aspects of the process, from defining the search through candidate integration.
Retained search fees ensure the highest level of professional service and a slate of top talent — while developing long-term relationships built on trust.
