Search Process

We create each search to fit our client's specific goals; this flexibility is one of the keys to our success. However, certain basic elements are part of every search. We begin with an in-depth assessment of your organization and your needs.

Needs Assessment

Knowing you is critical to making an excellent match with a qualified candidate. We learn your structure and culture, study your strategic goals, evaluate your leadership needs. This early phase of the search is also the time for developing goals and for creating a written report that can be shared with interested candidates.

Identification of Candidates

We utilize our extensive proprietary database plus various other networks, including professional associations to target potential candidates. We connect with candidates by personal meetings, telephone, email, and when appropriate, advertising. We single out the individuals with experience and skills that fit your unique needs.

Verification of Candidates' Backgrounds and Credentials

We do in-depth research on each candidate including speaking with current and former employers to gain a consensus on the candidate's skills, strengths, and management style.

Interviews and Negotiation

Once you have selected the candidates you with to interview in person, we offer guidance, feedback, and insights to help you narrow the field. Our experience and broad knowledge of current practices and conditions are at your service as you negotiate terms, salary, benefits, and other issues.
