technical staffing agency focused on recruiting tech talent for careers in the
entertainment industry, has launched in Los Angeles. A division of IT
specialist GPL Technologies, Breed connects motion picture studios, gaming
companies, visual effects houses, post-production facilities and other creative
service providers with the industry’s best engineers, IT and pipeline
specialists, and programmers.
Engineers and IT specialists fill critical
roles in the entertainment industry, but many companies lack the resources to
conduct an effective search for technical talent and may not have the expertise
to evaluate the qualifications of job candidates. Traditional recruitment
agencies, even those specializing in technical employment, lack insight into
the specialized needs and work environments of production companies, visual
effects houses and post production facilities. GPL Technologies, which has been
providing engineering design, systems integration and support services to media
companies for more than a decade, formed Breed to bridge the gap.

“The concept for Breed was born out of our
clients’ need for specialized engineering talent,” explains GPL Technologies
CEO Brian Terrell. “We know engineering, we also understand our clients’
businesses, so it’s only natural for us to offer them this service.”
Breed provides three types of staffing
service: direct placement (permanent, full-time positions), contract staffing
(short- and long-term temporary positions), and contract-to-hire (temporary
positions with an option for permanent hire). In all cases, the agency conducts
a global job search, pre-screens candidates according to the employer’s
criteria, and connects the best qualified candidates with the employer for
final consideration.
Breed differs from other staffing agencies by
evaluating candidates on more than their resumes. All candidates are subject to
both technical and cognitive testing. “We practice a holistic approach toward
talent assessment,” explains Breed Head Recruiter Jonathan Borunda. “We
evaluate individuals for such factors as autonomy, energy level and emotional
intelligence. We look at the whole person. That leads to smarter hiring and reduced
turnover. It’s better for employers and employees.”
Making smart choices about staffing not only
results in better, happier employees, it also contributes to improved business
performance. “We help companies by ensuring they have the right people in the
right jobs at the right time,” Borunda says. “The ability to bring in
highly-qualified contract workers at a moment’s notice for a specified time can
help companies make deadlines and reduce costs. Hiring someone whose technical
skills and work habits are ideally suited to the position you are filling leads
to better retention and avoids the time and cost of hiring someone new.”
