Case Study: Cultivating a Future by Feeding the Community

Direct Placement & Contract to Hire

Situation Beyond the chiming resonance and the frenetic activity of its gaming and hospitality environment,this large international Las Vegas headquartered resort corporation operates under the vigilant attention of information technology experts in cyber security, virtualization, operations analysis, and release management. Not far from the clients’ state of the art information technology center lies City Impact — a non-profit facility that provides the community with access to programs, education, housing, and wellness organizations. City Impact links citizens of all ages to tools that support productive, healthy, and wholesome lives. Vision Information Technologies CEO, David Segura, is a committed supporter of Las Vegas community enrichment along with the client’s procurement team, who recently supported the cultivation of a garden at City Impact. Jointly participating in a shared vision to support community needs in Las Vegas has strengthened the alliance between our companies. Our client needed IT support within its operations and without a robust contract labor program, turned to the VisionPRO division of Vision Information Technologies for direct placement and contract to hire needs.
Solution In June 2013, VisionPRO started working directly with the client’s executive director of IT. The IT environment is large and sophisticated, and our VisionPRO team meets weekly with the client. Not only do we provide talent acquisition services for roles supporting an array of technologies such as SAP, Microsoft, Oracle, Agilysys, Micros, IBM, and Cisco; but we also work on a number of projects. Our talented experts work on projects ranging from handling day-to-day information security operations; to maintenance of the shared services virtualization servers and infrastructure. They also manage Severity 1 and 2 incidents from inception to resolution and perform software deployments and business application installations into the corporate environment or host systems. Of the 20 placements made over the past 2 years, 13 were direct hire arrangements. Our client has invested heavily in VisionPRO’s people.
Results Shanna Goodman, VisionPRO Talent Agent dedicated to this account, shares numerous consultant stories that are representative of the caliber of our people. One story portrayed a high profile candidate who was being pursued by several companies. The candidate was offered a permanent IT position with our client and is now an integral part of their IT organization, so much so that he interviews many of our VisionPRO candidates for the client’s ongoing infrastructure security needs. Another story describes our client’s significant training investment in an employee the company wanted to hire directly. The employee’s outstanding performance yielded a highly favorable direct hire offer and today this individual holds a significant position within the client’s operations team and serves as a contact for VisionPRO. VisionPRO has made a notable impression with the competence and expertise of our IT talent. In addition to the talent we provide, our team invests a sincere amount of effort in understanding our client’s needs while also dedicating extended time working in the local community. What started in the community is now a firm start to a productive and lucrative relationship for both companies.
