Improving the Candidate & Client Experience. It's the Ursus Way.
Partner with our talent recruiting firm and you can count on a different experience as a customer or candidate.
We communicate with intention.
We strive to listen actively and respond quickly. If we don’t know we ask questions to confirm our understanding. During the staffing process we, diligently follow-up, are proactive, strive to ensure clarity and understanding to keep all parties in the communication loop - hiring manager, candidate, program manager.
We hustle all the time.
We put forth the extra effort, time, or resources, whatever that entails when most of our competitors don’t or won’t. Cutting corners is never an option. Politely persistent is one of our key mantras. This is why we are one of the top creative and technical staffing agencies in the area.
We pay attention to the details.
We believe in going the extra mile. We will outperform the competition. Always take the high road. And we care about the little things ... even when no one is watching.
We strive to constantly improve.
We focus on effectiveness and efficiency. That means focusing on doing the right things. And doing the right things the right way. We are a team of lifelong learners, who look to take advantage of and leverage the best tools, methods and processes available to us or created by us.
