The Search Process: Steps to Success
Communication with decision makers helps us gain a clear understanding of your business and internal culture. The steps below provide elements in our successful executive recruitment search.
Needs Analysis – Our professional team will work with you to develop a competitive market search specification that will attract the very best candidate. Knowledge of the marketplace allows us to monitor employment trends.
Client Requirements – Developing a thorough job description is vital to a successful search. Creating a job description that is complete and detailed is crucial. In order to find the perfect candidate, a precise account of the position and its requirements must be available.
Research – Our detailed analysis of the industry, company, competitors and marketplace will allow us to develop a winning game plan. A network of relationships enables us to discreetly target exceptional candidates.
Identification – Based on your needs and our research, we will identify the best potential candidates for the search. Technical ability is only one facet of a great executive. We identify and evaluate candidates extensively.
Evaluation – Our detailed interviewing process allows us to evaluate the talent in the marketplace and match that talent to your needs. We realize that the candidate “fit” is not just on paper, simply matching specs to a resume. We make assessments about the cultural fit between company and candidate as well as long-term compatibility. We look to provide long-term fits and matches that can contribute to your company now and into the future.
Presentation – Upon completion of our identification and evaluation process, we provide a summary of each qualified candidate for your review. This attention to detail provides an efficient, timely and highly successful match. We review client requirements and culture with candidates, making sure the candidate understands the client organization, its needs, goals and opportunity therein.
Reference Checks – The process through which we check references assures your hires are the finest available. Negotiation – By the time the decision is made to make an offer, our methodology assures an acceptance rate well above the industry average.
Follow-Up – After an acceptance, our job is not done. We continue to follow-up with both you and the candidate for a minimum of six months and up to one year.
