What are the benefits of hiring academics?
There is a wealth of untapped talent emerging from academia that can solve companies’ problems, help to beat the competition, make new products your customers love and attain those sales targets.
They have a creative bend of mind since they are trained to work with a problem-solving approach. Every academic need to write research papers, read a vast body of literature and come up with new concepts
They have studied for years complex techniques and systems ready to be applied in real-life situations
Which make them fantastic product managers and enable them to work across different functions and areas—from R&D, product development, compliance, to management and data science. Their skills are extremely useful in managing complex projects, controlling expenditures, ensuring timely completion of work and achieving required results.
Academic researchers live and breath data. Setting up and testing hypotheses involves collecting, cleaning, manipulating and analysing data of different types and different sizes to answer questions and communicate the story that the data hides.
Academics gain valuable experience by working with companies while in academia in order to secure data or use corporate labs. This can be confusing for companies that are used to understanding “work experience” as a position held in another company.
Big tech companies allow their employees to take some time off (fully paid) in order to work on their own “things”. Eventually, the company benefits greatly from it as most of the new products and services are inspired by researchers’ ideas that they have experimented with before.
Academics work for many years on solving problems and keep improving for the better good. It is in their DNA to make the world a better place and work with great integrity
They have lived through the benefits of diversity first-hand.

How we helped: We suggested to turn to science and connected them to a scientist working on new applications for their industry using different materials. The company started to collaborate with the researcher using the expert hours option but eventually offered the researcher a full-time job and built a team of similar specialists around him. His new technology revolutionised the company approach to manufacturing its core products and saved them millions.
How we helped: Our customer needed to create a team of data scientists to make sense of that data. They searched through our tech descriptions (Blitzcards) and found a few potential ideas on how to solve the problem. They hired an expert who knew the solution and a team to help the police understand not only the who, how and when of the crime but also when it might potentially happen again.
How we helped: Our customer found several tech solutions for better food management in stores, and experts familiar with those solutions were contacted. The experts first they worked on a consulting project and, eventually, the expert was hired on a permanent basis to continue the store optimisation project, which was turned into an ongoing process of the retailer’s activities.
