New Creative Talent Acquisition Consulting Firm to Help Companies Excel at Talent Attraction and Engagement

New Creative Talent Acquisition Consulting Firm launches to help clients measure and optimize across their talent acquisition landscape and improve in-house recruitment capabilities with flexible member plans and complementary set of talent acquisition services.

CONSHOHOCKEN, PA, February 4, 2015 – TalentSum ( is a recently launched Creative Talent Acquisition Consulting firm offering a complementary set of talent acquisition solutions and talent acquisition consulting services designed to equip and support in-house recruitment and help CEOs and talent leaders to measure, brand and build across the talent landscape.

The company’s goal is to be the “go-to” trusted provider to help growing small to medium businesses (with 20-1000 employees) stand out in the crowd and attract and hire more of the right people for less – a viable alternative to traditional agencies. TalentSum is designed to supplement internal teams looking for more capacity, expertise and reach.

Founder Christopher Mengel explains how TalentSum differs from a traditional recruitment agency: “ Our flexible approach helps businesses improve attraction and pre-hire with data and insights, branding, optimized experiences, social and sourcing. We deliver seamless integration with their existing team with no mess or fuss. Clients can bring us into projects or contracts – including data translation, employer branding, experience optimization and technology selection and implementation. Working with TalentSum is easy. There are no setup fees, hidden fees, or surprises – and clients can upgrade, downgrade, or cancel accounts at any time.”

Mengel came up with the idea of TalentSum in mid 2014, after spending 15 years building other people’s companies, and launching a few of his own talent and recruitment-related businesses. “It has gotten to the point where there is too much disfunction, distraction and high cost – and not the right level of longer-term value delivered through the traditional approach. The entire industry – including the way we attract and engage active and passive candidates – needs a reboot. While I see real value for focused recruitment, more and more I’m coming around to believe Josh Bersin when he said “the whole discipline of talent acquisition looks much more like marketing and much less like staffing every day”.” Mengel believes his services and plans are ideal for employers looking for better value, lower costs, and faster and improved quality-of-hire.

TalentSum starts with a simple transparent, “pay-as-you-go” pricing model to help clients, charging a flat monthly – “no contract, no commitment” rate. [highlight1] The basic plan is designed to improve in-house DIY efforts across employer branding and value proposition development, talent attraction, candidate identification and engagement, and more – and starts at $989 per month. [/highlight1]Flexible plans can be upgraded to include hiring assistance and sourcing support with a steady pipeline of preferred candidates, social media sharing, job edits and broadcasting, hiring profiles, talent-related marketing and branded content development, and even a scalable (dedicated) sourcing engine.
