IT-Outsourcing with Nordic Guarantee

af nov 12, 2019it-outsourcing

Deciding to outsource your IT employees is always a big decision and especially to a country which is unknown to you.

In Egypt we have many well educated IT people due to the fact that more than 50.000 IT student graduate from the universities in Cairo, ready to deliver advanced processes and knowledge service. Not only are they well educated within the IT field, but their language skills are also in top when it comes to English and in some cases even other languages as we have many international schools and universities (British, German, French, Canadian and American). This makes them ideal candidates for working for European and Gulf companies. Furthermore, Egypt is on the same time zone as most of Europe and Gulf which makes the day to day business very easy. There are many direct flights from Europe and the Gulf area.

This is how it works at CrossWorkers

Together with the local sales representative the client makes a business plan and a skills matrix which is being sent to the HR department in Cairo. At CrossWorkers we focus a lot on understanding the customer’s culture and business objectives, as we believe that personality is the most important thing when recruiting. Technical skills naturally have to meet the need – that goes without saying, but if personality is wrong it will never work. In order to completely understand the competences we should recruit, it is important that our Recruitment Team understand our clients’ needs wherefore we also set up a skype meeting with the client, our recruiters and technical management team. After the meeting we start to search for the right candidates. Each application and CV will be read though carefully, we do phone screenings and HR interviews and Technical interviews.  During the process our clients have access to an overview of where we are in the process, who we talked to and who have passed.  In our HR interviews we test personality, language skills and evaluate if candidates will fit into both the clients as well as the CrossWorkers organization.  Based on the first interview we decide which candidates will be going through a theoretical and practical technical interview. The candidates we find fits the client’s needs both technically and personally we present to the client. At this stage all remaining candidates will be able to fill the positions in question – now we are down to the chemistry between the client and candidate.  We always encourage our clients to do the finale interviews in Cairo as a face to face interview.  In some cases it is done via video call from our well-equipped meeting rooms in the Cairo office.  In all cases our Recruitment Team participate and advice our clients throughout the whole process.

It is very important for us to stress that the employee / employees who the client chooses ONLY works for them. We DO NOT share employees between clients.

In order to create an attractive workplace it is also important to us that all our clients’ employees feel that they are part of the CrossWorker family. We want to create a working environment which has both work related technological challenges, competitive salary and a great social environment. Furthermore, we ensure that all employees are both medical and socially insured and that their families also get access to professional medical insurance.

We are using both short and long-term recruiting strategies in finding the right people and have a substantial database of candidates. Short-term techniques by generating an immediate selection of candidates and instantly analyze applicants. Long-term techniques by keeping longterm relationships with people who have the potential to work with CrossWorkers, for example through offering scholarships to university students and sponsorships to community and universities organizations. With the right recruitment plan and recruiters, we are in a better position to hire the best people for our clients.
