Our executive search process is efficient, thorough, transparent, honest and confidential. We engage with people as human beings and not just as executives. In-depth interviews and the use of tools such as Successfinder allow us a 360o assessment opportunity. Our objective opinion of fit and likelihood of success in the new organizational setting is based on direct and indirect evaluation of personal and professional skills, work experience, reference checks and performance records.
To us, this is the most critical piece of the search process. Through discussions with client stakeholders, we co-develop a detailed brief about the role, its specific challenges, growth possibilities and critical success factors. This composite information helps us effectively identify the best candidates and present the opportunity to them.
We spend 4+ hours on interviewing each individual (telephonic and face-to-face) to gather comprehensive, objective and verifiable data. Where appropriate, the interview includes specific questions that clients may want answered. We videotape a portion of all interviews with the candidate’s permission and provide a copy (of those shortlisted) as additional information to clients.
Our rigorous assessment of candidates goes beyond the interview because a great resume is not always correlated with performance. We use Successfinder, a next-generation assessment tool that provides predictive insights into a candidate’s career satisfaction and success. Conducted by a certified assessor, this assessment enables us to determine “fit” in the context of how well a candidate is likely to perform in your organization.
Once the client has made a final choice, we work with the hiring manager, HR team and the selected candidate to complete other formalities as may be required and support the candidate till s/he joins. This includes addressing questions about the offer, compensation, start date and policies.
We provide a unique double guarantee for our executive search services. In the unlikely event that you are not satisfied with our candidate list, we will return the fee. Secondly, if a candidate recommended by us leaves within one year of joining you, we will undertake a replacement search at absolutely no additional cost to you.
