As a specialized, technology-enabled executive search team, we are experts at seamlessly integrating with your in-house team or RPO providers. Together, we can deliver an end-to-end process. Our work identifies, engages and hires the right top senior talent for your organization.

With our talent acquisition leadership, you will be able to search for passive candidates using the industry’s best practices. We leverage tools to accomplish this, including market mapping, competitor insight and new market entry analysis. Moreover, everything we do is designed to complement your executive recruiting efforts.

We act as your executive search firm. We have completed more than 4,000 searches across multiple industries, including healthcare, life sciences, education, financial & business services, oil & gas, advanced manufacturing, engineering, consumer goods, technology and media. With a truly global footprint, we can carry out the hiring process in any region.

As executive search and leadership consultants, we employ a highly targeted approach to identifying the individual candidates and potential talent who will best help you accomplish your goals. We have the flexibility to accomplish this as a single assignment or as part of a multiple senior hire engagement. Our research and insights services include: 

Talent pooling

Building a talent pool includes researching, mapping, and sourcing passive candidates to create your talent pool from direct competitors or other targeted segments. Your internal human resources team can then use this information as a base to recruit for current or upcoming needs.

Talent pipelining

We succeed at building a talent pool by identifying, screening and continuously engaging talent with the highest potential or relevant skills who are currently working for your competitors or in complementary fields.

Organizational charts

It can be helpful to know how competitors are structuring their departments and what services they’re offering in specific geographies or product lines. We can gather that competitive intelligence for you, customized to your preferences.

Compensation benchmarking

Part of being able to land top talent is knowing what the competition is offering. We will let you know what you’re up against from a total rewards perspective, and make recommendations on what you need to do to stand out.

Diversity mapping 

You define the criteria, we map the talent. Whether you need to know education, cultural background, languages spoken, diaspora, gender diversity, or other relevant data, we can gather it for you and apply it to the search.

Competitor intelligence 

We offer a custom-made, market map of competitor talent. This includes organizational structure, business strategy and model, and scale and size. This information is critical for when you want to expand into new markets or launch new products.

Our state-of-the-art, cloud-based technology allows our global team to provide a transparent, informative, data-driven, high-touch service. We employ best-in-class executive talent acquisition strategies to develop long-term solutions for when your company needs candidates. This means we can:

  • Manage, track and communicate feedback, and present external candidates to you in a single platform. You will have real-time access to candidate data 24/7.
  • Provide rigorous, collaborative, and consistent service to all clients. Anyone we find for you, regardless of what time zone they’re in, will get the highest-quality candidate experience.
  • Reduce executive search costs versus what you would encounter at traditional search firms. Our teams are incentivized through bonuses – not commission. We charge you less, deliver faster results, and provide more transparency and collaboration, all while future-proofing your pipelines for executive talent.
