CEO-watch.com : Who’s Results Driven Staffing?
Jim Reznikoff: Results Driven Staffing is a DC staffing agency that provides a wide variety of support services to companies with a need to fill staffing positions. We find the hard to reach candidates and strive for the perfect fit between skills and corporate culture.
CEO-watch.com : What makes Results Driven Staffing different?
Jim Reznikoff: We strive to find passive candidates. Those currently working and doing excellent work who may be unhappy at their current workplace or looking for a more challenging environment. Many firms take the low hanging fruit- the unemployed or those resumes they find on job boards. If someone is unemployed, there is a possibility that it is because they did not perform on the job. If they are currently working, that will not be an issue and increases the probability that the candidate will succeed when placed.

CEO-watch.com : How did you arrive at Results Driven Staffing?
Jim Reznikoff: I had very frustrating experiences when I needed to engage placement firms for my software development firm. Many placement firms were offering me candidates that I could find myself on job boards, or they did inadequate screening of candidates causing me to waste my time sifting through weak candidates. So I realized that if we had a better way for finding talent and really listening to both hard and soft skills, that we could fill a niche in the placement market.
