One of life’s great regrets is wasting your time in the wrong job, or working with the wrong team, or doing work that doesn’t matter. We have a profound respect for the joys and benefits of work, and know the pride and satisfaction that comes from working with the right people and doing a job well.
Yet in most organizations, nothing is remotely as inefficient and uncertain as the hiring process. Hiring does not need to be random. It’s possible to consistently hire top performers.
Every search firm has placed a few good people. That’s not hard. What’s difficult is developing a process that helps managers make great hiring decisions every time. That’s the complex and thorny problem that drives us. We don’t leave anything to chance when it comes to understanding who will thrive in an important job.
