Why should you delegate Executive Recruitment?

As an exec­u­tive search com­pa­ny, Glasford’s activ­i­ties revolve around procur­ing high­ly qual­i­fied can­di­dates for exec­u­tive job posi­tions on behalf of our clients. The advan­tages of hav­ing Glasford sup­port­ing you in the recruit­ing process are among others:

  • We pro­vide a spe­cial­ized and per­son­al­ized ser­vice: our consultants are experts in find­ing the best tal­ents in the func­tion­al roles we cov­er, and our process takes into con­sid­er­a­tion all the neces­si­ties of the posi­tion offered and the nuances of your com­pa­ny to search the ade­quate can­di­date pro­file to match your needs.
  • We opti­mize your human cap­i­tal, by con­nect­ing your com­pa­ny with com­pat­i­ble can­di­dates, econ­o­miz­ing your time and resources.
  • Our ser­vices rely on an indi­vid­ual con­sult­ing process care­ful­ly ana­lyz­ing our client’s work envi­ron­ment to direct the search for can­di­dates match­ing not only the skillset required for the opened posi­tion but the cor­re­spond­ing per­son­al­i­ty traits, enhanc­ing the chances of a long-last­ing con­tract, accord­ing to the company’s need.
  • A healthy and well-bal­anced work envi­ron­ment is fun­da­men­tal for sat­is­fac­to­ry pro­duc­tiv­i­ty and obtain­ing employ­ee loy­al­ty, and we aspire that our clients obtain that from our select­ed candidates.
  • The work envi­ron­ment is the com­ple­tion of phys­i­cal space, work con­di­tions and com­pa­ny cul­ture, and dif­fer­ent char­ac­ter­is­tics require the analy­sis of diverse per­son­al­i­ty traits of the prospect employ­ees to assure that they are fit­ting for each oth­er. That is rel­e­vant in all lev­els of employ­ment, but most cru­cial for man­age­r­i­al posi­tions, as pos­sess­ing the tech­ni­cal com­pe­tence to admin­is­trate a com­pa­ny does not auto­mat­i­cal­ly reper­cuss on hav­ing a com­pat­i­ble pro­file to work on the prop­a­ga­tion of the enterprise’s values.

When does it make sense to hire executive search firm?

Stakes are high when key posi­tions are staffed. The wrong can­di­date in a strate­gic posi­tion can cost firms mul­ti­ples of that person’s salary, let alone the incurred oppor­tu­ni­ty costs from lost busi­ness and lost momen­tum. The impact on the bot­tom line can be substantial.
Hir­ing an exec­u­tive search firm makes sense when suf­fi­cient resources for top-lev­el search­es are unavail­able, when con­tacts in the mar­ket­place are not estab­lished, and when skills to scan the mar­ket­place are not in place. Con­duct­ing exec­u­tive search­es is a full-time job whose effort should not be under­es­ti­mat­ed. Does your com­pa­ny have enough band­width to spare in-house staff for those search­es that last weeks? Out­side consultants car­ry out search­es dai­ly; we go and find your can­di­date. Our mar­ket knowl­edge depth and broad net­work are cru­cial dif­fer­en­tia­tors for part­ner­ing up with us.

Our Executive Search during the Pandemic

Exec­u­tive search process­es tend to rest on per­son­al con­tacts and selec­tion inter­views. This prac­tice has been fraught with dif­fi­cul­ties in recent years against the back­drop of the pan­dem­ic and dig­i­tal­iza­tion accel­er­at­ing faster than ever.
Despite rapid advances in dig­i­tal­iza­tion, we main­tain per­son­al con­tact when select­ing can­di­dates for your busi­ness. These face-to-face inter­views are impor­tant as they con­vey a lot of infor­ma­tion that is oth­er­wise lost in online envi­ron­ments. Our work depends on a very per­son­al assess­ment. For most com­pa­nies, it is too risky to hire top-lev­el can­di­dates with accord­ing­ly high salaries based on an online impression.
Our exec­u­tive search ser­vice remains per­son­al and indi­vid­ual, help­ing your firm tak­ing the right hir­ing deci­sion and avoid­ing the costs of wrong evaluations.

What is Important in Executive Search?

Each open posi­tion in a com­pa­ny should be filled with the most com­pat­i­ble can­di­date. Respon­si­ble recruit­ing goes beyond fill­ing a posi­tion; it requires the skillset, orga­ni­za­tion­al com­pe­tence, tech­ni­cal knowl­edge, and a detailed analy­sis of the char­ac­ter­is­tics of the job to trace and pro­file the ide­al can­di­dates. Only after iden­ti­fy­ing the hir­ing company’s needs can a recruiter start to scan and active­ly search for the prop­er nominee.
