Successful executives must:
An analysis of your requirements, culture and organizational structure is essential. Ideally, we like to meet with key individuals in your organization at the beginning of the mandate. This is part of our due diligence process. It allows us to classify the information and better understand your needs.
This meeting also helps us to better understand your business vision, objectives, and the challenges your company faces. Finally, this first stage allows us to determine the scope of the challenge the selected candidate will face. This analysis becomes the basis of our search strategy.
In the second stage, we describe the services included in our agreement. Topics covered include the company profile, a description of the position to be filled, a profile of the desired candidate, the search method, guarantee, fees and charges, and a timetable.
Before we proceed with the search, we ask you to approve the service offer.
Each mandate is unique for us. It is also important to develop a strategy for each project so that we can identify, evaluate and attract a sufficient number of qualified candidates to allow you to make a choice.
This step allows us to determine the industries and companies to include in our search, as well as the geographic parameters involved. We also look into the potential for knowledge transfer.
A structured market study is carried out for each mandate. We systematically prepare a list of companies in which we believe we can find potential candidates.
We then analyze each of these organizations. We essentially try to reproduce the organizational structure of the target company and identify the individuals who hold positions of interest for the purposes of the mandate.
Before we contact individuals directly, we consult with key resource people. Our goal is to gather as much information as possible about the people in our market study and identify the leaders. This allows us to identify candidates who should definitely be contacted. This is the preliminary reference check phase.
We systematically and confidentially contact potential candidates directly. We then conduct a telephone interview to assess the candidate. By the end of this stage, we usually have a curriculum vitae for each of the best candidates and know their compensation levels.
After an initial analysis of applicants identified during the search, we interview the individuals who best meet the requirements of the position. From this group, we select the individuals we feel are best qualified and submit a detailed career profile for each. We then provide a written evaluation for each of these candidates.
At this stage, you meet with the selected candidates.
We methodically check references and help you negotiate the final agreement with the selected candidate.
After the candidate is hired, we follow up regularly with both the client and the candidate. This allows us to evaluate the success of our process and helps the candidate integrate into his or her new environment.
