Talent Acquisition 

Most people understand that companies are nothing without people, and the best way to gain a competitive edge is to have the right talent in the right roles. However, many companies grapple with attracting, identifying, and hiring talent. Nepotism or gut-feeling hiring decisions can seem easy and tempting alternatives, but rational thinking quickly leads to understanding that these kind of decisions usually lead to sub-optimal results, and can even have disastrous results for all parties involved.

 

Hiring talent poses many challenges to businesses, with common issues including a limited candidate pool, poor talent pool identification, lengthy and inefficient recruitment process, inadequate candidate screening, misjudgment of cultural fit and of course, difficulty identifying the right skills and necessary personality traits. The resulting implications from these challenges range from productivity losses, high turnover, wasted resources, compromised brand reputation, to misaligned company culture.

 

Most research indicates that the average cost of replacing an employee can cost a company roughly 100-300% of the employees annual salary, accounting for lost intellectual capital, harmed client relationships, loss of productivity, and experience, in addition to the cost of recruiting a new hire. Mistakes in critical positions can have even harsher consequences as they have a larger impact on the company operations and culture. It's people that are the glue that hold a company together. The best talent makes the best organizations, and best organizations get the best talent. It's a self-reinforcing cycle that is common in many competitive environments where advantages tend to accumulate.

How to avoid these situations? Well, the first thing is realizing that investing in people is not just an operational necessity, but a strategic choice that influences whether an organization thrives or fails in the future. Hiring is much more than matching CV's to role descriptions, but let's be honest, that's to the extent that it is most often handled. There are many different talent acquisition strategies and it's not that one is objectively better than other. As it is with most things in life, the right strategy depends on the specifics - role, organization, strategic goals and risk tolerance.

End-to-End Recruitment

Once you've made the final decision, we'll do all the necessary background/reference checks and if needed, are ready to help with contracts, any negotiations and with off-/on-boarding.

While the exact process outline is dependent on the position and client specifics, our end-to-end recruitment service usually includes:

  • Consulting and assessing the position specifics along with identifying the key factors necessary for success in the position.

  • Analyzing the market, and creating the recruitment strategy based on current labor market situation along with industry and position specifics.

  • Designing the job advertisement and necessary recruitment materials for candidates, including position brief for direct search candidate.

  • Carrying out the direct search (headhunting) campaign.

  • Carrying out the public campaign in the designated channels.

  • Carrying out the candidate interviews and assessing the necessary competencies and experience required for success in the position.

  • Handling the candidate communication and scheduling throughout the project, including giving timely feedback to all rejected candidates.

  • Carrying out the candidate assessment.

  • Scheduling interviews with second stage candidates for our client.

  • Carrying out the reference/background checks for final stage candidates.

  • Giving personal feedback to final stage candidates.

  • Supporting in the negotiation and contract agreements.

No project is exactly the same, so and the exact strategy will depend on the project specifics. For example for some projects we might leverage job boards and various media channels, including social-, online-, and print media. In others, we might limit it to only job boards. Same goes for direct search, depending on the need and client specifics we might only do a direct search from largest job board databases, but with more specialized roles, we widen the talent pool even further, giving us the best chance to find the person best aligned with your organization's needs. To do so, in addition to conducting database searches, we actively identify your competitors and other companies within your industries of interest to identify even the most passive potential candidates.

 

We understand that a candidate's experience reflects your brand, so we always strive to ensure a positive and engaging journey. This not only improves talent attraction but also bolsters your brand's reputation.

To ensure you hire the right talent, we employ various interview methods to assess a candidate's suitability for the role. We can also incorporate additional assessment solutions into the process for enhanced precision. To provide you with further confidence in your hiring decision, we conduct reference checks for short-listed candidates, offering valuable insights into their professional backgrounds.

Direct Search (Headhunting)

Head-hunting

Sometimes running a public campaign doesn't make sense, and for these situations, we can put all of our focus on the direct search. In recruitment, the pinnacle of expertise isn't just in filling a position, it's in discovering and engaging the elusive, passive talent that remains unseen by others. This requires more than just a strategy, it requires a blend of analytical ability, empathy, diplomacy, insight, access to right tools and networks, and of course, the subtle art of persuasion. Where can you find the right talent? How do you approach the brightest minds of the industry without compromising any relationships with partners and competitors? How do you articulate the unique allure of your company, the role, and the team, not only in terms of compensation, but in opportunities for growth, innovation and impact?

DALL·E 2023-06-17 03_edited_edited.jpg

The challenge doesn't lie in the asking these questions, but in having the answers that can only be had by having vast experience in the field. Over 90% of the selected candidates in our end-to-end recruitment service come from candidates found through direct search, showcasing what effect a skillful personal approach can have.

Our direct search service usually includes:

  • Consulting and assessing the position specifics along with identifying the key factors necessary for success in the position.

  • Analyzing the market and creating the direct search strategy.

  • Designing the position brief for direct search candidates.

  • Identifying the target companies, their positions and employees.

Deciding who to interview, formulating the right questions, interpreting the responses, and tactfully declining the candidates not selected can be daunting tasks.
