How the executive search works:
- 1. Analysis of the organization’s requirements
The first stage of the executive search process recruitment is an analysis of the company’s requirements. Through a conversation with the HR director and designated people in your company, we gain as much knowledge as possible about its needs. Our executive search consultants thoroughly understand the organization’s culture and determine what requirements will be essential for potential leaders. During consultations, we often propose solutions known to us from the labor market and completed projects. This gives you a “fresh perspective” on the candidate market.
- 2. Development of the candidate’s profile
Based on the knowledge gained during the consultation, we will determine the exact profile of the candidate. It will include a detailed list of their responsibilities, challenges, required qualifications, competencies, and experience. This stage of executive search processes aims to achieve a complete understanding and select the optimal search strategy.
- 3. Searching for candidates
Based on our network of contacts, knowledge of the market, or direct search, we prepare a list of candidates who potentially meet predetermined requirements. This is also done by selecting companies that can potentially hire them. Executive search recruitment conducted in this way is conducive to attracting the best candidates for various management positions.
- 4. Contact with candidates
In the next stage of the executive search process, our executive search team contacts those listed on our list of potential candidates. Then, we arrange meetings with those interested in taking up a position. During them, we conduct thorough interviews, verifying the candidates’ knowledge and skills. We then develop a short list of suitable individuals and detailed reports.
- 5. Solid research about the candidates
If necessary, we ask candidates for references and verify them. These further allow us to determine whether a candidate is a suitable match for the needs of the organization and the tasks of the position. We also ensure they possess the critical competencies for the managerial position, thus increasing the likelihood of success in the entire hiring process.
- 6. Meetings of the candidates with the client and employment of the right person
Once we have completed the selection process, we will arrange the most suitable candidates for direct interviews with representatives of your organization. We help coordinate the meetings and support you in negotiating the terms of cooperation with the human resources department. Such a comprehensive approach to the executive search process makes most of our recruitments successful, and the relationships established with contractors and candidates become long-term.
