During my career with WebEx, I have worked with many recruiting
companies. Sales Talent proves to be one of the best. When Sales Talent
sends me a candidate, there is a strong chance I will hire the
applicant. They never waste my time, and I am always impressed with the
strong performance skills the candidates exhibit. Furthermore, Sales
Talent placed my #1 and #2 sales reps last quarter.

I just wanted to thank you for the quick response in getting our
candidate. Sales Talent had three pre-screened qualified candidates to
me in a few hours that were right the first time. Your attention to
detail is most impressive. Even more impressive is your professionalism
in always being there when EMC needs great candidates, not calling me
bugging me on a hourly, daily, or monthly basis. This professionalism is
what separates Sales Talent from the rest.

Sales Talent has impressed me as a premier search firm. After
unsuccessfully engaging two prominent search firms in our quest to find
a National Sales Manager we contacted Sales Talent. They had never done
a search in our field, which made me hesitant at first because of the
highly technical nature of our business. Based on the strong
recommendation of a close friend I decided to employ them anyway. Within
one week they presented not one but three candidates with perfect
backgrounds. Sales Talent was there for us through the interview process
and helped us attract the best candidate. In the future, Sales Talent
will handle all of our sales recruiting efforts.

I am writing to confirm the consistent and outstanding recruiting
efforts of Sales Talent on behalf of GlaxoSmithKline.
First let me point out that Sales Talent is our exclusive recruiting
agency in the Pacific Northwest. This is an area that generally
comprises Washington, Oregon, Alaska and Idaho. Most recently Sales
Talent has expanded searches for us into Northern California. Since
2000, Sales Talent's hires have performed exceptionally well in the
field. For example, their candidates have obtained 22 national Leader's
Edge awards. Leader's Edge recipients are recognized as performing in
the top 10% of their sales force. This accomplishment, during this time
frame, clearly reflects the talent and leadership of the individuals
which Sales Talent directed our way.
Apart from performance, Sales Talent's candidates have remained loyal to
GSK. For example, regional turnover during this time period was at 19.7%
while Sales Talent's candidates were at 6.25% over the same period.
GlaxoSmithKline is the 2nd largest pharmaceutical company in the world
with an 8,000 plus strong domestic sales force. JD Powers & Associates
has for the past 5 years ranked our sales force at a minimum of number
three overall compared to all other pharmaceutical companies. We choose
to partner and align with organizations that have the same high
standards. Sales Talent has met and exceeded our expectations and I
would recommend their services to any company.
Sales Talent is the first recruiting firm I turn to. Based on their
thorough screening of my needs, they are able to connect me with people
that fit the profile. They only give me their top three to four
candidates, which allows me to spend more time with quality individuals.
Of particular interest to Healthpoint is Sales Talent's ability to
recruit nationally. They have placed reps from California to New York
and everywhere in between.
What is even more important to me than finding candidates that interview
well, is finding candidates that perform well on the job. Since
Healthpoint began working with Sales Talent in 1999 the accomplishments
of the sales professionals placed with us has been exceptional. Sales
Talent has placed several President's Club winners, the team MVP, the
2000 and 2001 Runner-up "Rep of the Year" and 2004 "Rep of the Year".
Additionally, 3 of their placements have since been promoted to Division
Sales Talent understands what it takes to succeed in the competitive
field of medical sales.
I just want to reiterate how fantastic a recruiting firm Sales Talent
has been for us. With the past 12 placements, we have only 1 turnover,
and I would bet that 80% of the others will be at Gold Club.
Part of our success with Sales Talent has been my Sales Managers really
partnering with them to work together. I can tell you that Sales Talent
has got our profile down to a science, they don't over prep, they listen
to the Sales Manager and they work extremely hard!
They have my full endorsement!
