In a fully retained executive search you can expect to be guided through a process that ensures engagement of your key constituents, utilizes networking to bring you qualified, interested and engaged candidates and helps you select and hire confidently.
Typically a retained search process entails:
- Learning the needs of the organization, facilitating consensus around the expectations for the role, and developing a narrative that attracts candidates to the role.
- Robust recruiting of passive candidates who are deeply aligned with your mission and have the skill-base required of the role.
- Preparing the organization, typically a search committee or Executive leadership for interviews and substantive conversations that allow the people with the best cultural and skill fit emerge.
- Shepherding the search process from need definition to start date, facilitating all the decision making and process design to ensure the right people are engaged, and consulting on negotiations and onboarding.
