Today’s business environment is complex, competitive, and ever changing. Businesses that can consistently recruit the best people not only thrive; they survive in uncertain times. Consider the following as you contemplate engaging a search firm:
Many times, a hiring manager is left to guess what is motivating a candidate. A candidate is much more likely to tell a Search Consultant why they would consider making a career move. The recruiter acts as a third-party negotiator concentrating on bringing the two parties to a mutually benefiting relationship. What’s more, their reputation is reliant upon their ability to clear red flags, ask tough questions and mitigate risks to ensure both parties are making a good decision. The best candidates can be recruited by the combined efforts of a Search Consultant and a successful hiring manager.
A Search Consultant works all day talking to hundreds of people. They know your competitors. They know who’s doing the business and who is not. They know what it would take to recruit a key player from your competition, but most of all they know how to help you keep your key players on your team.
Companies tend to advertise locally, therefore, usually attracting local talent. Advertising is not cheap and to advertise in multiple locations could be as costly as paying a Search Firm. A Search Consultant will stay local, if needed, or go out as far as necessary to find the best possible candidate.
