The value of a search firm is found in the knowledge, judgment, efficiency and objectivity it can bring to the whole recruiting process. The better firms have a very high success ratio, and will guarantee to work on your project until it is complete. Unbeknownst to most corporate hiring authorities is the fact that most large-scale executive search firms don’t actually have the extensive reach you might think. Before engaging an y search firm ask for their ‘hands-off’ list and check to make sure there’s room enough to service your needs.
A good executive search isn’t just about the hire, but also the long-term value it brings to your organization
