Our Search Process

Week 1 | Create Search Strategy

Through a customized search approach, based on your requirements, your cultural environment and your business needs, we seek to understand your organization and culture, the scope of the position, the ideal attributes of the successful candidate and the critical success factors to be measured against in the short and long term for this position.  

Our tailor-made research strategy & process helps us to develop a position description, define key competencies as well as ideal criteria.  These serve as the measure by which we evaluate potential candidates.  The process seeks the “perfect fit” by a consultative approach to create a customized and comprehensive plan to identify, recruit, and attract qualified candidates, discussing resources, geographic range, compensation level, and how your opportunity will be presented in the marketplace.  

We then craft a compelling story, “The Pitch”, through further understanding of the company, people and your need.  This allows us to position your opportunity to the appropriate candidate audience in the most appealing way possible in such a competitive landscape.

Weeks 2-4 | Research, Identify and Calibrate

Using the comprehensive understanding we have of the position, we execute an exhaustive search to create an all-inclusive list of potential candidates. Our research is conducted internally – never outsourced – to ensure accurate, ongoing, intelligent information. We also identify new organizations and passive candidates to recruit and develop a database of specifically targeted individuals.  

We present “The Pitch” to these candidates, including details regarding the company, the people, the need and the impact the position can have on the organization.  Then we determine their interest level and obtain their feedback or follow up questions for the client.  In-depth discussions are held with each candidate to clarify the individual’s background, credentials, and performance history. Each candidate is carefully evaluated against the position needs and performance objectives, exploring, in depth, all aspects of the candidate’s background and personality.

Weeks 5-10 | Client Interviews

For the few best candidates, we provide a written assessment aligned with the performance objectives prior to their interview, along with the resume.  We verbally discuss all of this information with you to best prepare you for the interview(s).  After each interview, we review your evaluation and assess if there is a need for alterations to the ideal talent profile.

Weeks 10-12 | Final Stage Interviews

Once a candidate has been selected, we facilitate negotiations of compensation and needs, recommending any changes to an offer that will speed acceptance by the candidate and assist in the candidate’s resignation process and help avoid any counteroffer situations.
