We limit our executive search activities to positions where success has a strategic implication for the client’s future. The selection ratio of available talent for these assignments usually is 13:1000 or less. However, we have completed projects where the probability of the match was 1:2,500. For us, search is bespoke and a serious affair. Executive search is an exercise in network mapping, intelligence gathering, data analytics, behavioural analysis and relationship management. We augment our corporate data mining with a network of international researchers and referral ambassadors across three continents. This approach allows for a global perspective while leveraging nodes of local knowledge.
International Researchers & Referral Ambassadors
Our analytical rigour is core to our competency in identifying and attracting superior talent. Our Researchers and Referral Ambassadors are current with economic and industry trends, which allows sources to share their network with confidence, and for a prospect to be open about their career aspirations.
Our performance assessment tool is complex, with less than one hundred certified practitioners worldwide. At 85%, its accuracy for predicting high performance exceeds similar tests by more than 30%. Many Global 2000 firms consider our science-based methods for predicting a candidate’s potential to perform as world-class.
High Performers Need a Reason to Change
We take a genuine interest in helping talented prospects achieve their potential. We’re not in the business of half measures when it comes to ensuring a successful match for both parties. Where feasible, when we find an executive who benchmarks within our 13:1000 ratio, we will act in a market-making capacity through our Talent Agency and quietly promote them to a targeted list of employers and PE firms.
