Executive Search Process

Executive Search has been the cornerstone of our business since the firm was founded. Our search process starts by gaining a thorough understanding of the strategic goals of each client, the specific leadership roles and competencies needed to meet those goals, and the culture of the organization. Focusing on these underlying qualities allows us to take a broader, more creative approach in identifying potential candidates – particularly important as traditional industry silos are dissolving, and new industries are emerging. Our Goal is to expedite the hiring process for you and ultimately help find the best match for your company. The search process includes five efficient and proven steps that allows us to get to know your needs as a client and ultimately find you the best available executive match.

The 5 Steps of the Executive Search process

Client Kick-off

The most important part of the process is the research phase. At this stage, we will work collaboratively with you as your recruiting team to discuss the organization and the specifics of the desired management placement. Our understanding of the specific requirements will allow us to develop a “Position Profile”. This is both the road map for the executive search and a document that can be shared with candidates, summarizing the organization and the manager position’s scope, as well as an outline of the ideal candidate’s management competencies, work style and personality.

Candidate Development

Guided by the “Position Profile”, we will identify potential candidates for your search, leveraging our network of executive recruiting and consulting sources. Our objective is to interview and critically evaluate the most promising management professionals, thereby helping to expedite the hiring process by introducing you only to candidates who have a history of executive success. We will communicate with you regularly throughout this process, sharing market feedback, search status updates and potential executive candidate profiles.

Streamlined Search Experience

We work with you to identify a shortlist of highly skilled candidates. You will interview them all in one day in a professional setting without distraction and then identify the top two or three who should move forward to final interviews. We then work with you to finalize the negotiation process and ultimately accelerate the hiring and onboarding process.

Final Interviewing Stage

We conduct thorough reference checks on your finalist candidate(s). We verify post-secondary degrees and relevant certifications and licenses. Your company then receives a written Reference Report that details the fit to the “Position Profile”.

Conclude the Executive Search

Development of a mutually beneficial arrangement based upon the candidate’s compensation history/experience. Our frequent communication will ensure that you remain well informed about the status of the negotiations, the offer, and the acceptance. We will stay in close communication with both sides to facilitate a smooth and timely transition and on-boarding.
