As the talent market grows ever more competitive, you may find yourself struggling to compete. It’s tougher than ever to find and attract the executives you need to lead your team to success.
When planning your talent acquisition strategy for 2019, there are four important reasons a premier executive search firm should be part of your toolbox. Consider the following.
Access to Talent
An executive search firm doesn’t passively wait for resumes to flood their inbox. They selectively reach out to industry thought leaders who are successful in their current position and persuade them to consider your company. Thus, you’re seeing more than just the best available candidates; you’re seeing the very best talent — even those who may currently be working for your competitor.
The hiring process can be complex, particularly at higher levels. Your recruitment partner can help manage the many steps involved, from defining the search parameters, where to search, how to best screen, compensation recommendations, offer consultation and onboarding. The recruiter remains laser-focused on successfully placing your ideal candidate, so you can remain focused on business.
It’s the recruiter’s business to understand everything about the talent market in your area or industry. They know who works where, who may be ready to move and what it may take to make them part of your team. They have benchmarked compensation and understand the trends, allowing them to be a professional advisor for you.
Time and Cost Savings
As an executive search expert, your recruiter can fill open positions faster, more accurately and efficiently, so you can focus on revenue-driving activities. Recruiting is what they do best, and they have systems in place to manage every detail of the recruiting process including how to best market your firm as well as setting up interviews and debriefs.
