"An Octopus on roller skates..."


“Talent without discipline is like an octopus on roller skates.  There’s plenty of movement, but you never know if it’s going to be forward, backwards or sideways.”  (H. Jackson Brown Jr.)

I love this quote from H. Jackson Brown Jr. who you may remember as the American author, best known for his inspirational book, Life’s Little Instruction Book, which was a New York Times bestseller.  I can relate, because we at NextGen are in the talent business.  Finding great talent is always a challenge, but attracting great talent is the first step…then courting, directing, supporting, mentoring and retaining great talent is even more difficult, and so it goes …that discipline is required in our business, at every twist and turn. So, with that being said, I would like to share with you our new venture at NextGen that is enabling us to expand our talent business. 

 We are introducing…Chamba USA! 

Scarcity of talent is one of the most critical business risks today…and when it comes to talent acquisition, efficient processes are simply not enough. Today’s tightening talent market is creating a need for us to expand our service offerings and talent community.  As NextGen looks to become a global leader in the industry we are strengthening our ability to optimize our workforce and offer an ideal blend of resources.   The Hispanic/Latino group is expected to experience the largest population growth during the coming decades and therefore, we are developing new strategies such as the Chamba project to help  satisfy our current business demands while strategically preparing  for future climate changes. This initiative is intended to bring the best and the brightest talent from Mexico.    

For NextGen, looking into the future means acting now. The scarcity of IT talent is a reality that our clients are faced with, every day.   For the last 30 years Mexico has been acting as the near-shore option for American projects, thus creating resources ready to hit the ground running with American companies on this side of the border. At NextGen we have added a nationwide pipeline of IT resources specializing in high demand skills such as Java, C# and testing methodologies.

With this response to our clients’ needs and the changing landscape of business, we are excited to bring on these bi-lingual consultants who excel in their field and who bring experience, expertise and enthusiasm to every business endeavor.  Our founder, Carmen Jacob is a native of Guatemala and as one of the leading Hispanic-owned businesses in the country; it’s a natural fit for us to recruit from the Hispanic market. 

Our new talent acquisition is part of the changing world of business and technology, especially.  We have brought on board Hispanic consultants who understand what candidates are looking for in acquiring job opportunities in America.  We have developed processes that are designed to ease every transition area from Visas to our clients’ and consultants’ vested interests.  We understand that this Hispanic infusion is only the beginning for expanding our worldwide talent community and our ongoing commitment to diversity at NextGen.  It makes good business sense and a part of our sustainable future.
Intercultural business relationships is something we already excel in at 
NextGen…this is only the beginning.  Call me personally to find out more and how Chamba USA can work for you, your company, your family, your friends.  Lori Eaton:  314-249-5451 or 888-266-6601 ext. 5223.
