Today’s competitive and fast-changing business environment demands that organizations continually attract and secure strong talent to achieve and sustain success. As a result, recruitment must be proactive, strategic, and well-defined. Candidates who have strong financial and technical aptitudes, change agent mindsets, high emotional intelligence, and inclusive and empowering management styles are in high demand.
Often, these professionals cannot be reached through traditional recruitment methods. They are typically playing instrumental roles in their current organizations and are deeply entrenched in processes and initiatives. While these candidates are not actively looking for new employment opportunities, they would consider ones that offer growth and can satisfy their personal goals, ambitions, and family considerations. They are attracted to positions that can offer new and different challenges.
Progressive human resources, senior-level, and C-suite executives understand these facts, which is why they seek a search partner who will function as an extension of their organizations, helping them to refine their business models and achieve their objectives. These executives need and want focused and deliberate talent acquisition. They appreciate the value of strong human capital and want to be engaged in search strategies. They want to understand the marketplace and the talent that is attainable, from determining sources of candidates to evaluating how well certain individuals may adapt within their organizations.
Succession planning, talent pipelining, key executive replacements, executing initiatives, and reaching goals – these are all situations that we understand, and we deal with variations of these with each and every search. While we typically work closely with executive-level management or human resources directors, we have conducted many assignments involving boards, search committees, chancellors, and other special executive teams.
