We have hands-on, extensive experience recruiting human resources executives to startup, mid-cap, and private equity-backed organizations, and Fortune 250 companies. Some of the global client sectors we serve include:
Today in human resources, we are at a crossroads of old and new. Technology and big data have changed the speed and precision around talent management, predicting and assessing gaps, and integrating talent acquisition with performance management.
When we partner with clients, they look to us for a higher level of fit and service. Interviewing techniques are the tip of the iceberg. We have to thoroughly answer the question, in a way like never before, ‘Why do we want to present this person as a candidate to our client, and why don’t we?’
Being art and science, interviewing and assessing need to be augmented by other points of validation, such as rigorous reference checking. This takes an extensive, current network to do well. Exhaustive social media research and how they treat people on the phone when they are being scheduled are other important points. It often sounds like we are presenting a business case, but, when we present candidates to our clients, it is balanced with soft skills, agility, motivation, grit, and character. There are multiple points of confirmation that come together to create a picture of a strong fit.
It is not one thing – it is everything coming together to validate the picture of a perfect fit.
