Service Offerings

Recruitment Support

Much of modern recruitment resourcing is web-based – so also the tasks associated with Recruitment Process Support - research, searching the web, distributing job specs, response management, correspondence, validating applicants, arranging interviews, assessments, etc.

Structured On-boarding

AT GDKN, we have structured on boarding and off boarding processes in which we communicate the job offer to the candidate and obtain a letter from the candidate confirming compensation information, date of joining, location of job, travel dates etc. We have the candidate fill out a Candidate Information Sheet to enable HR to issue Offer Letter. We then, send the offer packet to the candidate and coordinate with the candidate until the joining date.

We deliver the candidate to the client location and communicate with him/her throughout the duration of the engagement. Equally effective is our off-boarding process. We formulated the off-boarding process to ensure a smooth transition at the client site as well as to minimize any negative impact on employee morale. The potential for re-engaging the consultant is always a top consideration.

Payroll Management

Oftentimes, companies seek a supplier to assume the payroll processing, tax administration, and other obligatory employment functions in support of consultants. GDKN provides payrolling services, assuming management responsibility of the referred or pass-through consultants identified by the client. Our payrolling process includes complete validation, induction, and communication management. GDKN is as a payroll provider for several large corporations in addition to providing these clients with staff Augmentation and transitioning services.

Direct Hire

While many companies task their HR departments with the responsibility of staffing permanent positions, they may choose to outsource the recruiting effort for one or more job categories across discrete lines of businesses or geographies. GDKN provides direct hire (permanent placement) services and recruits employees on behalf of its clients to fill permanent positions for technology, general, or hard-to-find skill-sets across a wide breadth of job categories and geographies. Those clients engaging GDKN for contingent labor or temporary staffing requirements have the option of engaging GDKN for direct hire positions as well as converting existing GDKN consultants to permanent employees.

Workforce Transitioning

The transitioning of consultants or teams of consultants from one vendor to another is often the outcome of a vendor consolidation or de-selection activity. Through a successful vendor consolidation program, the client reaps the advantages of engaging with fewer, more qualified suppliers. Sourcing activities can be centralized and ultimately more efficient. There will not be vast disparities in fees. There will not be variances in contracts. There are limited candidate ownership questions; hence, less co-employment risk. Deliverables across the board will be more consistent.

GDKN concurs that the periodic assessment of suppliers is a necessary aspect of continuous improvement and due diligence in supply chain management. Ultimately, the best suppliers rise to the top when appraised according to KPIs and metrics-based performance. We have a team dedicated to the transitioning practice and is wholly proficient at assuming management responsibility and becoming the employer of record for a consultant, group of consultants, or project team previously on-boarded by another vendor.

We are pleased to say that the company has often been the recipient of additional consultants after vendor consolidation programs and has transitioned nearly two thousand consultants from deselected suppliers over the past few years. GDKN provides a smooth transition, extending client-specific benefits, and welcoming the new consultants to the circle.

Team Deployment

We have deployed teams for SOW projects as well as ongoing programs, and has transitioned contractors and consultants from other vendors to its own team. We provide a number of our Fortune 500 clients with smooth and seamless team deployment and transition services.
For any transitioning exercise, we deploy low cost technology solutions such as a dedicated website and dedicated call center to assist in creating an open communication environment for the allocated employees. The transition process has proven to accomplish long-term retention and motivation for these employees. The time-tested and highly successful transition process ultimately benefits both the client and employees by transitioning the best candidates to the most appropriate positions and rates. It is in the best interest of the client and employees to have a quick and efficient transition process whenever a change is required.

Independent Contractor Validation

At GDKN, we offer IC validation and compliance services that directly address all IRS guidelines. The service applies to 1099/independent contractors and subcontractors. Our Independent contractor validation process is a sum of Analysis & Determination based on the IRS 20 Factors Questionnaire, Standardized On-Boarding Process, On-going Compliance Management, Invoice - Payment Processing, Advance Payment Option, Legislative & Regulatory Expertise.
