We begin with an
in-depth assessment of your organization and your needs.
Knowing you is critical to making an excellent match with a qualified
candidate. We learn your structure and culture, study your strategic
goals, understand your leadership needs. We
interview members of your management team and the people who will
interact most directly with the person in the position to be filled; we
visit on-site to gain direct experience and insight. This early phase
of the search is also the time for developing goals and timelines, for
creating strategic paths around any possible roadblocks, and for creating
a written report which, once approved, can be shared with interested
We use our
extensive proprietary database plus various other networks including
professional associations to target potential candidates across all key
industries. We connect with candidates by telephone, email, targeted
direct mail, and when appropriate, advertising, and single out the
individuals with experience and skills that fit your unique needs.
Once we have an
initial pool of identified candidates, we use extensive telephone
interviews to screen and evaluate each one, not only for compatibility
with your specific organization but for serious interest in the
position. This narrows the group of candidates further and singles out
candidates who are most likely to fill your position successfully.
Candidates' Backgrounds and Credentials
We do in-depth
research on each candidate, which includes speaking with current and
former employers to gain a consensus on the candidate's management
style, skills and strengths. Naturally we also verify each candidate's
academic degrees, and professional licenses and certifications.
Within thirty to
sixty days, we will have further narrowed the search to a handpicked
group of candidates who are the most qualified for your position, the
best matches for your criteria, and who have a demonstrated serious
interest in your position. You will be presented with resumes and
detailed reports on our interviews and screening process for each
candidate. Because we will have talked to each candidate quite
extensively at this point, we will be able to discuss each one's
qualifications and background with you in detail.
Once you have
selected the candidates you wish to interview in person, we offer
guidance, feedback and insights to help you narrow the field. Our
experience and broad knowledge of current practices and conditions in
the healthcare field is at your service as you negotiate terms, salary,
benefits, and other issues.
