The Cook County Finance Committee on Wednesday voted to approve a one-year extension of a contract with Deloitte, the firm that has been performing employee recruitment and hiring services for the county for the past 14 months. The approval sends the final decision to the county board of commissioners.
Some commissioners, while still voting to approve the $5.47 million contract (Item 23-0253), stressed they would hold Deloitte accountable and refuse to renew the contract again if it fails to deliver on its stated goals and if the county Bureau of Human Resources fails to provide information commissioners have asked for, such as the average length of time it takes between the opening of a job vacancy and the end of a replacement’s onboarding.
