The Principal of The Business Agility Group (Australia) Pty Ltd (The BAG), Dallas Newton, is a veteran of the IT Industry, starting his career around the same time as the Personal Computer. He has seen the evolution of businesses and technology and understands the importance of Customer relationships and always having the right people, skills and tools available to succeed. Add exemplary service and agility and you have The BAG – a nimble organisation built around a strong network, experience, communication, (personalised) service and value.
Our approach is very personal and although we use modern (Cloud) technology for our Business Management Systems (eg. Recruitment, Clients, Finance and Communications), we don’t use AI/ML or automation to find, qualify, communicate and manage our Clients or Candidates. We prefer a much more face to face, hands on approach, typically with mid-sized organisations and partners who value a more personal service. Being a more “Boutique” Supplier, this works for us, providing great value, customer service, quality candidates with skills, experience and cultural fit aligned to the Client.
We care about our Clients and we care about our Candidates, keeping all parties involved in the relationship, informed, and hopefully satisfied. We are not a Supplier who talks relationship, service and value, but is really only interested in speed, automation and volume.
The benefit which we believe our Clients can expect is the noticeably higher quality of informed Candidate that we attract and the greatly reduced time and effort our Clients need to devote to validating candidates and the recruitment process in general. Key reasons being:
- We take the time upfront to understand our Clients and their culture. This typically involves face to face time; a personal touch that we feel is typically missing in the recruitment industry today.
- We require minimal consultation with our Clients to understand the target role, environment and culture.
- We are very targeted in our approach to finding candidates and qualifying them. Accordingly, we typically submit a small number of well qualified, high quality candidates.
We do not have a large Client base – this is an intentional principle in our business model and it is this, coupled with our years of experience in the IT Industry and our Sourcing and Delivery models, which enable us to consistently achieve our differentiation.
All Client interfacing staff have IT experience encompassing some or most of software development, infrastructure support, software sales, solutions sales, partner management and recruitment. As such, The BAG understands technology and business and thus understands resourcing technical requirements for the Clients, Candidates and Business Partners alike.
