Not Your AverageEmployment Agency

The word, “exemplar,” which is also the root of the company’s name, means “a model to others.” And that’s exactly what the team at Xemplar Skilled Workforce Solutions aims to be in their industry.

At Xemplar Skilled Workforce Solutions, they aren’t interested in taking a “body business” approach to matching employees and employers — where volume is the ultimate priority, and a heartbeat is the only prerequisite for success. Instead, they have set out from the beginning to focus on finding the right fit and optimizing success for their candidates and clients.

Here’s what Adam Himoff, the Founder and President of Xemplar Skilled Workforce Solutions, had to say on the matter:

“Through our focus on matchmaking and identifying and understanding the unique qualities of our candidates and clients, we have been able to develop a service that actually delivers on the goals of our clients (to find great-quality employees) and our candidates (to find a great-fit job).”

We asked Adam why they do what they do at Xemplar Skilled Workforce Solutions. Here is his response:

“We believe that hiring is an inefficient market. Finding a job and hiring good people is hard. It takes too much time to research companies or sift through resumes and attract good candidates. Too many people take the first job they can find, and too many companies bring on people that are never going to fit their business and culture. Employment agencies are everywhere, but their focus is usually on bodies and not on finding a good, long-term fit. We think hiring well is worth it to everyone involved, and that is the experience that we aim to provide to the companies and candidates we are lucky enough to work with. True hiring success and enabling good people to reach their true potential are what gets us excited.”

Building Success With a Strong Online Dialogue

Adam credits Xemplar’s powerful online reputation to his team’s dedication to creating and maintaining a strong online dialogue with their customers:

“That has meant setting up profiles on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google My Business and other sites, and continuing to seed those social media platforms with great and relevant content. Because we have two customer profiles — candidates and companies — we needed to be very thoughtful about what conversation we were having on which platforms.”

He also credits it to the company’s focus on getting reviews on Google and other websites:

“On each of those sites, we have encouraged our customers to visit and review our services and provide feedback at key moments in our process.”

The memorable, effective service Xemplar Skilled Workforce Solutions provides to the companies and candidates they work for hasn’t only led to a great online reputation; it drives referrals. They also work to create visibility in the market through networking and branding, and they continuously develop content for their website, including articles and tips.

We asked Adam what advice he has for other business owners looking to grow their business and build their online reputation. Here are his words of wisdom:

“First, we think that the most important first step towards building a great reputation is to deliver a high-quality and differentiated service. Make it good and make it memorable. Review every step of your service process and all the touch points you have with clients to make sure that their experience is the best it can be. Second, it’s to establish your business on highly visible online platforms where you can be seen. Lastly, through those sites, it’s initiating a feedback engine for your company through reviews. Reviews are obviously a double-edged sword because they can be good or bad. But if you make sure your house is in order then start that dialogue with your customers, it will pay off significantly.”


Congratulations to the team at Xemplar Skilled Workforce Solutions for being a 2018 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Adam, for taking the time to speak with us!
