Search as a hiring strategy can be effective, applied to any level of seniority although mostly associated with senior hires. We see it as a proactive way of filling roles where the talent availability is constrained and/or the talent pool opaque. A well-executed search brings stacks of information and ultimately allows companies to make better-informed hiring decisions. Search is research based and the fundamental premise is to delve into the peer groups to canvass confidential views, recommendations and inside information relating to professionals. Critical to this approach is peer group trust, allowing access to information, views and opinions from inside the audiences.
We are fond of data as you may have already concluded from some of our talent articles. Needless to say that our bespoke search reports are always rich on insights into your competitor landscape.
