We’ve been serving since day one
These days, many companies are scrambling to change their business model and adapt to the global pandemic. The good ones are making moves to protect their employees and better serve their clients — but what if businesses were simply founded upon these principals of "service" to begin with?
At CCN, we have always put people first, and now it’s more important than ever. We remain dedicated to exceptional service, competitive pricing, transparency and above-market pay for our network of consultants.
There’s a reason why we call our company a “network” instead of an agency or consulting firm. We believe in the simple idea that by serving people first, everyone ultimately wins. From day one, CCN was designed to serve our finance and accounting peers — period.
We do things differently
We serve a market of profit-seeking companies and are dedicated to supporting that effort with every bit of bull-dogged tenacity we can muster. But, we also wholeheartedly believe that we must refuse to let our own profit margins limit our ability to serve. Our consultants, candidates, and clients deserve our very best.
In fact, we made a deliberate decision to not utilize outside investors. Too often, they bring baggage of monthly calls with demands for higher margins and more growth. It's a pressure we didn't want to put on our pure service model.
"We must refuse to let our own profit margins limit our ability to serve. Our consultants, candidates, and clients deserve our very best."
At CCN, our background is in finance and accounting — not sales. We’ve been in your shoes, and we know exactly what kind of people you need. Our primary motivation isn’t the next big commission; it’s finding the right talent to help your team succeed.
These are just a few of the ways we've decided to do business differently...
- Competitive Consulting Rates: The standard 100% markup can be hard to swallow. At CCN we’ve kept our overhead and margins low, passing on more savings to clients and better pay for consultants.
- Transparent Billing: In our industry, it’s often hard to know where your money is going, and how much of it is actually going to the consultant. We offer complete transparency on the bill rate (consultant's pay, CCN fee, taxes, etc.).
- Above Market Pay for Consultants: We believe happy consultants make for happy clients. We hire the best talent in Texas, and we give them a great pay rate for their work.
- Hourly Direct Hire Pricing Model: Especially when it comes to hiring during the pandemic, companies are hesitant to shell out large chunks of cash for traditional commission-based recruiters. At CCN, we simply bill for the time necessary to find great candidates. Our direct-hire clients benefit from significant savings, often more than 50% lower than contingent-based recruiters.
Mission over profit
Above all, CCN was founded by consultants with the belief that mission comes before profit, and not the other way around. Profit and growth are simply the RESULT of good service — and our results speak for themselves. Over the first few years CCN has been in business, hundreds of consultants and clients around Texas have flocked to the new network that puts people first.
Give us a call or shoot us a message. We’d love to find out how we can serve YOU in this challenging season.
