Our search professionals
are relationship driven. We believe that client interests come first,
and we emphasize trust and confidentiality in our dealings with both clients
From the outset, we
work closely with clients to develop a clear understanding of their company,
their values, their business goals, their market and their staffing needs.
Because we listen first, we don't waste time later. We are dedicated to
helping our clients make the best possible hiring decisions-whether they
need to hire one key manager or staff an entire department.
We begin by defining
the scope of the project and creating profiles for the positions to be
filled. We work closely with you to customize the search based on your
unique staffing needs and company culture.
Once potential candidates are identified, we make contact with them on
a direct, personal basis. This phase-possibly the most critical time of
the search - is twofold:
- We become your
spokesperson, representing your company in the same professional manner
in which you would represent it yourself. We present the objectives,
opportunities, responsibilities and advancement potential associated
with the positions you need to fill.
- We compare the
qualifications of the candidates against the comprehensive profiles
developed during the planning stage. Only when a strong mutual interest
between you and the candidate is determined does the process continue.
Once our thorough screening process is completed and candidates have been
evaluated, only the outstanding candidates are presented for your consideration.
We also assist you in scheduling and monitoring the interview process
with your management team.
We have a conference
room available for client company use which allows you to conduct initial,
confidential interviews in a neutral location.
The Decision and
While you alone make the decision on the best candidate for your organization,
we can assist you during this critical phase. Reference checks provide
you with invaluable information, which helps you, make the right choice.
We offer counsel and facilitate communications on salary terms, relocation
and benefits. We try to remove some of the emotion of the salary negotiation
process - with continuing discussions of a realistic compensation package
to be offered by the company and the expectations of the candidate to
ensure success at the offer stage. We also talk with the spouse especially
when considering relocation and how this will impact the entire family.
We also assist the candidate through the emotional process of resigning
his or her present position and dealing with counteroffers.
Our goal is to provide your company with people who will contribute to
your corporate goals and make a real impact on your organization. After
the candidate is hired, we maintain contact with you and with the candidate
to ensure that this goal is accomplished.
