How It Began
As an HR Director for a tech-based language learning company, Damon knew the company had huge seasonal hiring needs. He needed to hire some great employees that could teach various languages to students across the US 2-3 times a year. HR didn’t need a full-time recruiter all year long but needed help finding new people with solid language skills to share with our students.
After a lot of pleading and begging Damon was approved for a limited budget for seasonal recruiting help. He asked traditional headhunters and temp staffing companies if he could rent their staff to recruit good employees and have them recruit for him with their systems and processes as needed. He was told that they don’t work like that and need to make more money to help us find good people. He needed to find good employees for an affordable rate. He didn’t think that should be as hard as it was proving to be.
Then and there the decision was made that Damon would create a company that allowed people to “rent” experienced recruiters with their own equipment, systems and databases when they needed them. Not only did he want to help as many companies as he could find great employees at an affordable rate, but he also wanted to create and provide flexible jobs to a non-traditional work force. Helping people find jobs they are happy in, can make a world of difference in someone’s daily life. HRmango was born out of recruiting pain, limited budgets and having a big heart.
