Executive search firms play a critical role in leadership matchmaking by connecting the most eligible candidates with companies looking to fill senior roles. C`Elites, as a firm, not only has comprehensive industry knowledge, but also a good network of professional industry contacts which we utilize to make successful searches efficiently. We have a proven executive search process that has helped us establish our credibility in the market.
Priority setting is our first P in the equation. We examine and dig deep into the requirements attached to each and every role based on the job description. We help clients in stream-lining the job description if needed and set the search priorities in terms of areas of expertise, domain, and the industry being focused on.
Planning for the search is our second P in the equation. We create a team and set up a plan to execute the search based on the information shared with us. We determine the various candidate target pools based on industry, competition, and references. A crucial part of the plan is setting up a communication schedule for the client to apprise them of the search progress. This keeps the recruiting team regularly updated in terms of the search we are targeting, as well as the candidates’ background and relevance.
Procuring candidates is our third P in the equation. The assigned team works as per the plan and starts sourcing candidates. They follow a certain pre-determined threshold to establish the relevance and discuss the candidate profiles with the team internally. They continue the efforts until everyone is on the same page and we have a list of candidates to be considered for a discussion.
Positioning candidates is fourth P in the queue in this equation. Shortlisted candidates are then evaluated as per C`Elites standards using our methods to qualify them before they are being assigned deemed fit for the batch. This process is repeated with all the shortlisted candidates till they become the part of the overall best suited candidates batch.
Presenting candidates is our fifth P in this equation. The final batch of candidates is presenting to the client. Based on their availability they are scheduled for phone and in person meetings. The senior leadership roles warrant the need to know and understand the candidate from various different perspectives. Therefore, we require them to meet the team and board members to ensure they have the right cultural, technological, and team fit.
Placement and final closure is our last P in the equation. We help our esteemed client with their final questions and concerns, including background checks, package discussions, joining dates, and last but not least, the final overall negotiations once everything else gets settled.
