Location: Work is done 100% remotely or in a hybrid (some remote, some in-office) setting.
Schedule: Employees work outside of the traditional 8 am – 5 pm hours or the traditional 5-day work week. A flexible schedule may look like working from 7 am – 4 pm or working Monday to Thursday.
Hours: Professionals work <30 hours part-time, in a job share arrangement, or between 30-40 hours full-time.
Culture: Companies measure success by reaching goals versus time in the office. For example, a role may require 40 hours, primarily in-office. But employees attend child’s school functions, games, and doctor’s appointments without explaining exactly when they will be back and how they will make up that time.
"The best thing about Boulo is that they made everything easy. Hiring is stressful and risky. The wrong hire costs months. Firing someone is awful for everyone involved.
We worked with several companies in town for our most recent hire, and they all did good jobs. But Boulo stood out because of how deeply they engaged.
It was like they were Fledging's own HR function on a mission. The candidates they brought all met or exceeded our expectations.
More importantly, Boulo really knew how to read between the lines to help me understand opportunities in our job posting that I hadn't even considered.
Communication was prompt, precise, and attentive. You should never feel like you have to manage a third party shop who you're paying to do a job. I never once felt like I was managing Boulo.
Just 43 days passed between posting the role and the start date of our incredible new hire. Lightning fast speed for an A+ result.
I'm confident we'll save time and money over time, too, because the right hire can easily be 5-10x better than an adequate hire.
Boulo is at the top of my list for future hires."
Boulo has been terrific at this stage in my career. They have matched me with a great opportunity as well as provided support whenever I needed.
I highly recommend utilizing Boulo to find your next career opportunity!
Delphine, Jeanne and the entire Boulo Solutions team have played a pivotal role in our growth as a company. They're responsive and engaged every step of the way.
We wouldn't think about bringing on additional talent without speaking with them first.
Boulo connected me to a position that offers the flexibility I need and also offers room for growth and more hours in the future. I like the company and their culture; it feels like a really great fit.
This happened so much quicker than I ever thought and being able to specify flexibility up front was a huge bonus, all thanks to Boulo! Thanks for your help!
My experience with Boulo has been terrific! Partnering with Boulo after being furloughed from COVID19 was the best decision.
The process was easy and thorough, making me focus on my strengths and future goals. The company I now work for is amazing!! I work remotely and am developing new skills.
I would highly recommend anyone (and have to several friends) to try Boulo for their "next step". I feel like I have a part of my life back working and being relevant.
I was thrilled to find Boulo--what a terrific way to support a cause I believe in AND get the help I need!
I had a quick call with the team about my initial needs and then met three great candidates-all of whom were outstanding! I have been hiring for almost 20 years and Boulo made it so easy. I could get the help I needed within days, not weeks.
I am completely satisfied, would recommend Boulo to anyone looking for talent, and will absolutely use them again as my business grows!
Boulo has given me the type of balance I honestly did not know was possible. After having my daughter, I left the only career I had ever known.
I loved being home with my little girl, but still found myself longing for some type of work outside of the home. Boulo took into account both my experience and desire for flexibility and helped me find a job that gave me both of those things.
The cherry on top is how delightful the Boulo team is to work with. Delphine and her team of talented women has made this an amazing experience!
Without Lauren, the project would not have been completed and our customer would have become frustrated. Finding someone with the skillset and available time to tackle this job was critical – and proved to be very effective for Deep South Freight.
I would certainly use Boulo again for a future project that comes our way.
Boulo has been such a great resource for me. I moved to the Birmingham area and had my second child shortly after the move.
I have been freelancing for several years, but I found myself needing extra help forming business connections in a new city. Boulo came at the perfect time and was able to connect me with a job that was flexible and fit my schedule perfectly.
I am so thankful to have found a fit that utilizes my creative skills, while allowing me to have flexibility to still have afternoon play dates and stay home if my girls are sick.
We have some seasonality in our industry and were unable to anticipate the demand we received this season, so it was particularly important to find competent and capable people to jump right in and learn on the fly. Boulo did a great job identifying that talent and helping us continue to grow when we were in a pinch.
We have used their staff for part time, full time, and project work. I've been pleased with everyone they have sent. We continue to keep them in mind as we grow.
