Sumter Local Government Consulting understands how hard it can be to keep top talent. In the modern-day workplace, it can be hard to retain your most valued employees. Even cities or counties with the most competitive compensation and highly sought-after cultures can’t always retain high-performing employees.

In the event of a sudden departure, it may be impossible to promote from within, find a suitable long-term replacement in a shortened recruiting window, or have talent on-hand to fill in. However, by working with Sumter Local Government Consulting you can find a short-term replacement while buying more time to complete a thorough search process for your next full-time hire. Our local government interim services are the stop-gap you need to maintain your organization’s continuity. 

There are many reasons why bringing on an interim director or other executive-level/professional resource could make sense for your organization:

Restoring your cultural equilibrium

Key talent departures cause anxiety about who and how the work will get done and how major projects will fare. Utilizing our interim services resources can minimize the potential damage caused by an unexpected and untimely departure.

A simple short-term commitment

Local government interim services provide short-term immediate relief to the pressures of filling a key vacancy. You can take a “deep breath” to think things through and strategize how you want to handle things going forward. Sumter Local Government Consulting can work with you to find a suitable match and get someone with the right credentials and fit on board quickly. You decide when the interim assignment will end, providing much-needed flexibility to your local government.

Expertise and experience

Most interim executives carry unique knowledge and considerable experience working in their field. This can provide you with high-level talent on a temporary basis that you couldn’t otherwise afford or recruit. They offer a high value in talent that can oftentimes be an upgrade from the talent that left.

Test before you buy

Leveraging support from an interim executive leader can provide you with an opportunity to test out an individual who may be a long-term fit for your local government. Sumter Local Government Consulting is unique in that we don’t charge a fee if you hire an interim employee on a full-time basis. We believe this approach builds trust and enables long-term relationships.
