The RocketPower Way
At RocketPower, we've spent a lot of time with clients, listening to their struggles and feedback on hiring. Each story and piece of advice we heard was like a building block, helping us create a better way to work. That’s how The RocketPower Way came about. It’s more than just words; it’s a hands-on, straightforward approach we developed by paying close attention to what clients really need and want. This isn't marketing talk; it's our way of making sure we address the real, everyday challenges businesses face when they set out to find and hire the right talent. In the sections that follow, you’ll get a closer look at the fundamental parts of The RocketPower Way, like customer feedback and a commitment to satisfaction, and you’ll see how each part grew out of the lessons we’ve learned from past experiences.
Client input is the cornerstone of our methodology. We gather insights into their unique needs and pain points through consistent engagement with our clients. This real-world perspective guides our strategic approach.
While data is essential, we don't view it solely through a quantitative lens. Our team combines analytical rigor with qualitative insights. We derive meaningful stories from data to inform decision making. This empowers us to recruit strategically.
Commitment to Client Satisfaction:
We don't measure our success by client satisfaction surveys alone. Our goal is to delight each client through tailored service that exceeds expectations actively. We consistently assess performance to enhance the client experience.
Focus on Results:
For us, success means driving tangible outcomes for your organization. We maintain a results-focused approach, closely monitoring agreed-upon impact metrics. This allows us to deliver measurable recruiting results.
Empathy in Action:
Our team understands the real-world pressures you face in today's dynamic talent market. We leverage this empathy to provide responsive service, balancing quality with speed. This combination allows us to add value as a partner.
Our Team's Expertise:
We've carefully built a team combining seasoned recruiting experts with enthusiastic emerging talent. This empowers us to make optimal matches between candidates and roles. We continuously invest in professional development to enhance our expertise.
These real-world lessons led us to make our Four R's system.
The Four R's are: Ramp, Resources, Reporting, and Results.
They work together to boost recruitment strategy.
Recruitment requires being strategic yet efficient. The goal is to onboard talent quickly while aligning with objectives and minimizing disruption.
The Launch Operations Team aims to rapidly comprehend needs, tailor the approach, and swiftly mobilize resources for new projects. Launch timeframes range from 2 days to 6 weeks based on team size and complexity.
With experience across industries and a adaptable framework, ramp-up is accelerated but thoughtful. The focus is on assembling an optimal mix of talent and resources to effectively achieve goals within constraints. By understanding requirements, mapping out plans, and securing resources in advance, missteps are avoided so launches go smoothly.
The Launch Team has honed the ability to be nimble yet focused when starting new engagements. They rapidly grasp objectives, predict needs, and customize strategies to minimize friction. With seasoned professionals and a scalable model, talent and technology can be deployed swiftly to drive results, without compromising process or quality. Careful orchestration of all moving parts prevents scrambling so that new initiatives launch seamlessly.
Our edge lies in our specialized team of recruiters, sourcers, and coordinators who boast global experience across industries and markets. As our Resource Management Manager explains,
"We have the right expertise to provide tailored solutions for every client need. We are in constant training, with our internal quarterly reports used to showcase our experience areas and guide strategic recruiting plans. This allows us to proactively assemble the ideal teams to match talent with roles."
By proactively matching the perfect team to each requirement, we ensure clients can find the ideal talent. With seasoned veterans and emerging thinkers, our all-star team makes the RocketPower difference. Their passion for matching people with purpose powers our ability to find the perfect fit for every role and company.
Clear communication and transparency are crucial to any successful recruitment partnership. The reporting process is designed to consistently keep clients informed and engaged.
The proprietary dashboard provides both big picture insights and finer details:
Real-Time Tracking: Monitor each recruitment's progress from initial sourcing to final onboarding.
Two-Way Feedback: Candidates can be evaluated instantly, enabling seamless collaboration.
Key Metrics: Time-to-fill, cost-per-hire, candidate engagement and other crucial metrics can be evaluated.
Benchmarking: Performance can be compared against industry standards to gauge effectiveness.
With robust reporting, data-driven decisions can be made, strategies fine-tuned, and control maintained.
The recruitment process goes beyond numbers to align results with an organization's specific needs and culture.
Tailored Metrics: The system allows customizable metrics to fit unique goals like reducing time-to-fill or improving candidate quality.
In-Depth Analysis: Performance tracking and data insights identify successes and areas for improvement.
Long-Term Impact: Candidate retention rates, career growth, and organizational impact are evaluated.
Cultural Fit: Candidates are assessed for alignment with company values and vision.
The results-driven approach delivers exceptional outcomes, not just satisfactory. Value is provided by focusing on goals meaningful to each organization beyond traditional metrics. Success means driving strategic impact through tailored, data-driven recruitment practices.

A leading cybersecurity company formed in 2022 through the merger of two industry leaders was under immense pressure to meet aggressive global hiring targets.
After considering several firms, RocketPower was selected to source and screen engineering, IT, sales, customer success, and executive talent across the Americas, APAC, and EMEA.
RocketPower stood out for our record of producing results quickly and ability to adjust recruiting support based on changing business needs. We initially mobilized a four person sourcing team which eventually scaled to 26.

Our team sourced 115 candidates that received offers, enabling the company to meet hiring goals ahead of schedule. The majority of offers were for software engineers.
In addition to sourcing passive candidates, RocketPower helped streamline interview processes and provided insights on funnel speed and stage passthrough rates. We became indispensable, with Hiring Managers requesting to partner with us.

Case Study (A Seed-Staged Recruitment Technology Startup)
A seed-stage recruitment technology startup based in San Francisco was founded in 2017 by an experienced entrepreneur.
Shortly after a funding round, the founder engaged RocketPower to scale the 6-person team, accelerating growth by building out engineering and sales.
RocketPower was selected given our track record with early-stage startups, especially hiring senior engineers in the Bay Area.
We deployed a small but skilled team of 2 recruiters and 3 sourcers to source, screen, and manage candidates. We also built processes and implemented an applicant tracking system.
In 8 months, RocketPower more than doubled the startup's team to set up their next phase of growth. We built an engineering organization across the Bay Area, including a Head of Engineering and Senior Engineers from Top Tech Companies.
We also scaled the sales organization nationally to target SMBs and large enterprises.
