History-The Arko Advantage

Bob Arko, founder and CEO of Arko Executive Services Inc., said the main hiring priority for his firm in 2001 is to fill upper management positions.The company provides contract security services , uniformed personnel and investigation services in the United States and abroad , operating through eight offices.
Last year, Arko hired about 350 people in the Atlanta office, which includes numbers from growth and replacing people who left the company.But filling those positions took some time.
"Atlanta was tough last year until the fourth quarter when it opened up considerably for us and we were able to get the people required on the entry and middle level," he said.
...
Arko said it was more of a challenge to find qualified people for upper management positions because of a lag in the number of individuals with true business talent, a challenge he doesn't see with his office in Ammon, Jordan.
"It is difficult to find the people well-rounded in the business environment," Arko said."Overseas, there are college-educated people standing by and the quality is just outstanding.People don't realize how great this country is.People [in Jordan] are vying for jobs that are beneath them, but they don't have a choice."
Arko recruits for upper level positions by advertising in newspapers, on the Internet, and through referrals.One factor that Arko believes will increase the pool of upper management applicants this year is the restructuring of competitor firms and consolidations.
"With all the movements, purchases and buyouts, it will allow some quality management people to come to us," he said."We think it is an advantage for us and a relatively easy strategy to follow."
Another option for Arko is to groom middle managers already on staff so they mature into the upper management role.He also looks to hire sales people who want to work in Atlanta rather than being responsible for covering a larger geographical region.
