We create each search to fit our
client's specific goals; this flexibility is one of the keys to our success.
However, certain basic elements are part of every search.
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
Identification of Candidates
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.
Evaluation of Candidates
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.
Verification of Candidates' Backgrounds and Credentials
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.
Presentation of Candidates
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.
Interviews and Negotiation
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.
