Our talent acquisition process is inefficient and frustrating.

Many organizations, large and small, find recruiting of Sales Professionals to be a difficult process. As your company grows, so does your requirements for highly skilled, experienced candidates who will fit your culture and be productive for the long term.

The more often you hire, the more important it becomes to develop standards and processes to help you identify and engage with worthy candidates. With national averages for sales rep turnover running between 34% and 55% most companies are in the mode of perpetually looking for great talent. 

Growth Orbit can help you by providing great candidates who are vetted through our proprietary evaluation processes to match skills, personality, intellect, and compensation with your requirements.

Sales rep onboarding and ramp up takes 6 months.

Ramp up time will vary for everyone as sales cycles differ and the complexity of the solutions being sold affect the time it takes to train someone new. There are different ways to calculate an expected ramp up period as well. Regardless of how its calculated, the reported average ramp up time for B2B sales professionals is 5.5 months. Combine that with 3 to 4 months to find and hire someone and you are facing nearly a year of sunk costs before your investment in talent begins to pay off.

Growth Orbit can help you find top talent in your industry, equipped with the skills and experience you need, which can shorten the ramp up time.

Our top performers move on to other opportunities.

Employee turnover is a fact of life in the business world. People retire. People move. People get let go. Whatever the reason, salespeople have one of the shortest median tenures, with an average of just under 2.5 years. For companies in need of top sales talent, losing a highly productive rep can be devastating.

While there are many reasons salespeople leave; compensation, leadership, better opportunities, the common denominator is usually a mismatch of expectations between the candidate and the company.  Growth Orbit’s recruiting process can help you keep top talent by working with you to clearly understand the position, culture, opportunity, and your expectations and matching candidates that are seeking those same goals.
