Great hires often come from internal referrals. Talk to your network and incent your team to leverage their social power to find candidates...but put a time limit on it.
Now is the time to get some outside help and you have a decision to make, contingency or retained.
Contingency firms do not require exclusivity but that also means they are not focused on your needs, typically working on 50+ projects at one time. They do not dedicate resources to understand your business or vet candidates.
We require exclusivity with respect to a position, but only take on a limited number of searches per year. This allows us to focus our resources and energy on sourcing and reviewing candidates, delivering 5 to 7 highly qualified candidates rather than dozens of resumes. We do the heavy lifting, allowing you to focus on your business.
Terms negotiated, dotted-line signed, off to the races!
We work with you to create a list of the key requirements for the role, prioritizing them and setting a clear roadmap for finding the right candidates.
We meet with your internal stakeholders to get a complete view of the culture of the business and the intangibles that will lead to a successful hire.
We are the magnet. We do extensive research to find the right people and present them with an interesting opportunity—yours.
We screen and meet with candidates developing a list of recommendations. We dedicate our time to this exhaustive process, not yours.
We will present a list of candidates who are interested in the opportunity and help you decide who to meet based on compensation, level, background, and other factors that are key to your business.
We schedule interviews with candidates, getting your feedback on each throughout the process.
If needed, we use your feedback to find more candidates resembling the ones you like.
Getting down to a short list, your internal stakeholders get involved for further evaluation of team and culture fit.
We work with your team to negotiate the deal (salary and benefits) and get your new “A Player” in the office as soon as possible.
