Executive search partners are the eyes and ears within the industry and in the marketplace. They understand the needs that companies face because they work in the industry day in and day out. They understand the employment marketplace as a whole and intimately know the industry in which they serve. Not only do they know what companies are doing, but they know what top talent is doing. This is all information that companies wish they had and by leveraging a partnership with an executive search partner, this information is at the tip of their fingertips. Here are few signs that a partner is worth exploring:
- Industry Events – Sure, reading articles and blogs can keep people in the know about the industry, but attending industry events such as tradeshows is a sign that they take the time to truly dive into the industry.
- Proven Success – Ask what their success rate is in placing candidates in positions. A good executive search partner will have proven success over the years, in the industry to back up their methodology.
- Grit – A good executive search partner does what needs to be done to understand the industry, their clients and the competition. Chris Hillman of SearchPath of Chicago, Inc. makes an average of 12,000 phone calls. He uses these opportunities to investigate the competition, knowledge of products sold to the same customer base, industry trends, candidate reputation, and much more.
Chris will be attending SupplySide West show in Las Vegas, October 15th-19th. He’ll be available to discuss the needs of your company and how he can help identify, locate, and recruit the talent that you need to continue to grow your team and business.
