Our unique practice of assessing a client’s culture and needs, identifying key executive competencies and screening candidates based on those competency requirements distinguishes us from other search firms. We believe our approach tends to reduce the search cycle time while increasing the probability of a good fit between candidate and client.
|Client Search Process|
|management review||develop an in-depth understanding of the client, the organization, and the necessary skills and requirements of the target position|
|position specification||create a detailed position spec that conveys the nuances of the position to our staff and to prospective candidates|
|strategic market identification||develop a search strategy focused on identifying prospects and sources from our network; develop a list of target companies from which to identify key prospects and sources|
|candidate identification||build a list of prospects and sources from our research; make calls to targeted individuals to determine their qualifications and interest; perform personal interviews; determine a slate of candidates for the client to interview
NOTE: Our extensive network of industry sources is a key factor in our successful identification of qualified candidates.
|candidate evaluations||provide the client with written candidate profiles on 3-4 individuals: includes confidential information about the their current job, career experience, accomplishments and personal background; focus not just on tangible qualifications, but on the intangible qualities that may separate a good candidate from a great one|
|reference checking||contact qualified references of candidates where there is mutual interest; develop a detailed report of collective comments; and review this report with the client|
|presentation of an offer||work with the client to structure a compensation package calculated to attract the finalist; serve as intermediary to resolve differences to everyone’s satisfaction|
|follow-up||although the recruiting process is complete when an offer is accepted, we stay in touch with the both parties to provide assistance if necessary, for approximately 12 months|
