Our executive recruiting and hiring process begins by working with you to define your Ideal Candidate. During this “more traditional” recruiting conversation, we detail requirements for the position such as education, experience, compensation, benefits, and non-negotiables. Additionally, we strive to understand “WHY” someone should want to work for and join your company.
Next, we “break from tradition”! Utilizing a patented Job Benchmarking process, we work with your subject matter experts to understand why the position exists and define key accountabilities for the position. Then, utilizing an online assessment tool (like the DISC Assessment), we create a benchmark for the job based on the behaviors, motivators, skills and acumen indicators required for success in the position.
Once we have defined your ideal candidate and developed a benchmark, our executive recruiters seek out Optimal Candidates. The talented individuals we approach are generally not looking for a new position and considered passive. They are the two-thirds of the qualified workforce who are only reachable through a targeted recruiting approach.
Our clients rely on our knowledge of the occupational disciplines in which we recruit and we use sophisticated computer technology to manage large amounts of information on candidates and our discussions during the interview process. Our inquiries are made in strict confidence, and your company is not identified until a candidate has advanced through at least two screening steps and shown a significant interest in the position.
Once our executive recruiters have identified and engaged optimal candidates, we perform in-depth screening with each candidate to determine if they meet your requirements.
At this point, advancing candidates who match the benchmark and other requirements are Presented to the Client to begin the client’s Interview process. Clients are provided a comprehensive candidate package including summaries of all interview conversations, as well as questionnaires, videos, resumes, profiles, assessment results, and other beneficial documents.
After each interview, we debrief both you and the candidate and then follow up to ascertain the candidate’s interest, provide additional information, resolve any open questions or concerns and schedule follow-up interviews.
Once presented, we work with you to make a final hiring selection, prepare an offer and secure a “Yes” from your chosen candidate. We assist in composing and extending the offer and in negotiating any changes.
