Organizations of all sizes across all industries have found the value of partnering with executive search firms. But why are these partnerships so successful? As organizations grow, things evolve, and their time and focus are on transforming and growing the business. Executive search partners are able to come in and help save time, provide expertise and tap into networks of talent.
Save Time & Increase Efficiency
HR teams have endless responsibilities that span beyond just recruiting for positions. By allowing a firm to come in and help with that one responsibility will alleviate the schedule of the internal HR team to allow them more time to execute on all of their other responsibilities. This ultimately increases productivity and efficiency of your internal teams.
Firms have a deep understanding of the industries they service. They keep up with industry trends and attend industry events to also stay in the know and be ahead of the game. By attending these events and keeping up with the changes, they are better equipped to know what type of talent organizations would need and who would be a good fit.
Not only do they know the industry, they know the professionals that work the industry. They continuously make connections and expand their network which enables them to find top talent for positions that need to fill. Recruitment teams typically only have access to submitted resumes, personal connections and employee referrals. While these produce good results for generic roles, when looking for a professional with a specific skillset, utilizing both active (applications, referrals, etc.) and passive (a exhaustive rolodex of contacts) is key to filling the role with the right professional.
Giving your internal team time back in their day and allowing a search executive partner to come with its expertise and pre-populated candidate pool is a win-win situation. The question becomes, do you want to find a qualified candidate, or the most qualified candidate?
