We're Not Like the Competition. We're Better.
Here’s the honest truth: anyone can call themselves a recruiter. All you need is a proverbial shingle to hang at your door and you’re in business.
That’s where we’re different. After more than 20 years, we’ve built our company on our unique industry experience, our proven process and our proprietary tools and methods. And our recruiters are better than anyone else in the business. We call it the 20/20 Difference. And here’s what that means to you.
A dedicated team of experts.
You’ll have seasoned recruiters, researchers and consultants dedicated to your search. In addition to years of recruiting experience, every recruiter also has experience working in your industry. And we all have one thing in common: a strong work ethic that won’t quit until the search is successful.
The industry’s best database. With the contact information of more than 100,000 candidates and 20,000 companies, our digital database is updated in real time and used by all of our recruiters.
The latest technology. Our in-house Research Department uses sophisticated digital directories and methodologies to find the most qualified candidates. From Jobscience to LinkedIn to our proprietary database, every search benefits from the latest technology.
An extensive candidate evaluation system. We don’t just locate the best candidates for our clients, we find the right candidates for the job. That’s why we screen, interview and evaluate every candidate.
A hybrid fee structure. There’s a small retainer to start work, then the remainder of the fee is due when—and only when—the right candidate is hired. If we don’t find a candidate, no further fee is due.
Candidate guarantee. It’s our mission to find the best candidates for our clients. And we stand behind our work. Our contract provides:
- A full money back guarantee if you’re dissatisfied with our service.
- A one-year guarantee on all positions.
- A two-year replacement guarantee for C-level executives.
Accountability. We build our client relationships on collaboration and transparency. That’s why we share our progress and invite your input to help focus the search. Throughout the search process, you’ll receive detailed updates every 5-10 days. Want more transparency? Just ask.
Proven results. Over the last 20 years, we’ve created an executive search process that’s proven successful. Compared to industry averages, we consistently outperform the competition.
- 80% of our searches are completed within 100 days. If a tighter turnaround is required, we can fast track your search to 45-60 days.
- 95% of our searches are successful. The industry average is 65%.
- 89% of our placements are still employed 3 years after their start date. This is our “stick rate,” and it beats the industry average of 48%.
