Partnerships are the most important element of Vector Talent Resources, Inc.’s mission. When Vector employees meet with prospective clients, they have conversations about what Vector does, what it offers and what the client needs, but they also discuss their expectations for the partnership. “We won’t partner with companies who just want resumes sent to them, or who portray little interest in the quality or fit of the candidate for the position or within their organization,” says president and CEO Marc Berman. “This is not the type of company we want to work with.” Once Vector decides to engage in a partnership, it works to get to know the company inside and out. This approach has created lasting relationships that have propelled Vector’s growth.

Quick Tip: “At the end of the day, our clients’ success is our success, and Vector will go the extra mile to ensure they succeed.”

Berman notes that companies in the IT sector are notorious for over-promising and under-delivering. This was a fear for Vector as it grew rapidly. “One of the biggest challenges we have had to face due to our growth is learning that we need to be able to adapt our internal processes to meet our growth,” says Berman. To stay ahead of its growth, the company has simply acknowledged change as a part of business and welcomed it.
