Executive search: the advantages of hiring a head hunter
Are you looking for a new executive? Turning to a head-hunting company can help you find a professional who will make a real difference in your company, especially in these times when supply and demand are discrepant and finding qualified personnel seems increasingly difficult.
Companies need to keep up and quickly find the talent that will contribute to the continuous improvement of the company, also known as continuous improvement. Timing is therefore an important aspect, because an organisation cannot be without a key figure such as a manager and it is crucial that the manager is found within a few weeks.
The Head Hunter has a database of high-calibre professionals by area of specialisation available to the company within a short period. Deciding to go to a Head Hunter is like deciding to have a pass to have access to the best candidates, which the company would otherwise not have.
Without forgetting that there are aspects that only an experienced Head Hunter can examine in depth. These include the ability to assess a candidate as a unique individual, with his or her skills, experience, values and potential. This guarantees a customised assessment, avoiding harmful standardisation of the process, which would risk bringing the wrong figure into the organisation with high damage both economically, in terms of image, and team cohesion.
How executives are chosen by a Head Hunter
The head hunter chooses an executive on the basis of a precise strategy that takes into account the company’s needs. From there, a list is drawn up, also making a comparative analysis of people in the same role in competing companies. Being specialised in the sector in which the search is being conducted, the headhunter interviews the candidates, speaking their own language and being able to concretely assess the professional. Once the interviews have been done, the list is skimmed and handed over to the client company so that together they can choose the right person. The head hunter also supports the company in the negotiation phase with the candidate so that both can gain the greatest benefit, so that a profitable and long-lasting win-win relationship is born.
Turning to a Head Hunter for the search of executives is the best choice for those seeking a real advantage from this process, so much so that, if once it was only large companies and multinationals that turned to head hunters, today even SMEs are choosing this route, because it guarantees a faster, more professional process (which is also important for the company’s reputation) and a greater likelihood of success.
