GreatAmerica Financial Services Corporation and VAR Staffing provide the IT Channel with innovative financing options for the proactive procurement of hard-to-find technical talent
Dallas, TX – October 22, 2014: VAR Staffing and GreatAmerica Financial proudly announce a program providing MSPs, VARs, Solution Providers and Systems Integrators with a financing program for all VAR Staffing recruitment services. VAR Staffing and GreatAmerica recognize that Service and Solution Providers need the best talent possible to distinguish their company. Whether they are supporting, architecting or integrating solutions—the technical team is the face of the firm and its most important link to the customer.
“GreatAmerica values the health of the Channel and we recognize one of the best ways to help Solution Providers succeed is to arm them with the best possible technical employees,” said Greg VanDeWalker, Senior VP and GM of GreatAmerica’s Communications & Data Group. “This highly-customized program provides access to top quality technical talent with a payment structure that accommodates cash flow concerns.”
For over 7 years, VAR Staffing has been dedicated to identifying, vetting and delivering Channel-oriented talent to the Partner Community. As the only staffing company that has invested the time to truly orient themselves towards the IT Channel, VAR Staffing continuously strives to develop partnerships across the community to facilitate greater access to their unique service. “Our partnership with GreatAmerica Financial represents our total commitment to providing all members of the Partner community access to our unique service,” said Mark Bier, Principal at VAR Staffing.
With unemployment in the IT Channel hovering at 1%, the challenges of attracting the right talent can be enormously frustrating. “The IT Channel is a unique community whose staffing needs are equally unique and vastly different from the Enterprise, Corporate IT environment,” Mr. Bier said, “while technical competency absolutely comprises some portion of their needs – above all, the Partner Community is hungry for engineers that can operate in a dynamic technical environment while, in parallel, establishing themselves as a trusted IT advisor.”
