One of his key life principles is to “make life tap,” meaning, to dominate your purpose so thoroughly that “life” simply has to submit to your passions and goals (akin to “tapping out,” as in mixed martial arts).
As a rising entrepreneur, Dave has reached the lives of countless individuals and companies, especially companies in need of finding the right people.
So, why does Dave Fox matter for any company recruiting new talent?
Dave Fox matters because every day that goes on without filling a key hire for your company causes more cash to burn then you might realize.
The cost for recruiting, replacing, retraining, and ramping up a new hire to 100% productivity can be tremendous, sometimes even as high as 2 1/2 times the employee salary, not to mention the time required to onboard and train. As a recruiting expert with a decade of experience in the industry, Dave Fox prides himself on helping to streamline this process and make it as efficient as possible, especially for companies in niche technology sectors.
Part of what makes his company, Focus GTS, so unique, is that they work with a vast network of employers and in relationships to help generate key candidates within 24 hours of working with a firm in need.
This matters because time is precious in the recruiting process, and many companies simply don’t know how much loss they suffer when trying to recruit through traditional means.
Dave recounts a recent client who has explained that Focus GTS has been crucial in helping them find the best A.I. and Data Science talent for their initiatives. Getting the right people for their projects in a timely manner has been critically important to them. Focus GTS has been a significant part of this company’s people strategy.
Recruiting is becoming increasingly essential as the “war for talent” becomes more intense. Again, the costs involved with turnover, recruitment, training, and replacing great hires are substantial in terms of fixed and unfixed costs. As a finance professional, Dave understands these things intimately, and has constructed a firm that uses advanced methodology to align the right companies with the right people.
As Dave explains, “GTS works with around the country and using their cutting edge recruitment process they’ll typically cut in half the time it would typically take to fill a position. The Corporate Executive Board recently did a study and found that it costs a company $500 per day for an open position. With our cutting edge process Focus is saving companies thousands of dollars.”
