A targeted and structured approach is based on a clear concept/vision. The 'Specify' process stage is about understanding the overall context of the vacancy to be filled. In doing so, we do not regard the isolated vacancy, but consider your corporate vision and mission and the added value our staffing can contribute to them. The core element is our methodical position intake, which we have continued to refine over the past decade. In the process, we clarify among others the following questions:
- Where do you want to be as a company in 5-10 years?
- What specific role will this result in for your intended manager?
- What talents, skills and experience does your company need - today and in the future?
- What challenges does the executive need to overcome?
- What kind of character is necessary to fill this role in the best possible way?
Only when these and numerous other questions have been comprehensively clarified, a clear shared perspective, that enables targeted profiling.
Once the analysis phase is complete, the strategy development phase follows, which we call 'Strategise'. It is crucial to the success of a search, as we translate all the elements from the position intake into a search and approach strategy:
- How can we successfully approach the identified executives?
- Where do we find your target person?
- Which staffing strategy is ideal and what is the appropriate time and project plan?
This step-by-step planning, which is carried out in close coordination with you, forms the basis for sophisticated and result-oriented recruiting. In this way, we optimize the chances of success and create numerous positive impressions during the candidate journey, which continue on even after the project has been completed.
During the third step we launch the active search and approach, which means that we carry out our recruiting measures, which have been intensively optimized for your success for many years. We focus on the following areas:
- We activate promising candidates by direct approach and consolidate the candidate pool with the help of structured interviews and sound assessment tools
- We inform you on a weekly basis with executive reports and updates regarding the progress of the project and the response behavior in the candidate market
The search phase is the heart of our recruitment process. It ensures that an exclusively selected number of suitable candidates is at your disposal. This facilitates and accelerates all subsequent decision-making stages. The search phase ends with the presentation of the candidates and the seamless transition to your company-specific selection process.
The Select phase incorporates for one thing the selection and presentation of the most auspicious candidates and the competent support during the interviews and staffing steps on the other hand. Our focus lies on the following measures:
- We manage the application process and accompany all interviews personally and professionally. In this way, we can provide comprehensive support to both sides and ensure that no ambiguities remain, or questions are left unanswered.
- With our tried-and-tested division one candidate journey elements, we ensure a consistently positive experience on the candidate side. This process conveys security through comprehensive information, transparency and professionalism, thus increasing the likelihood of a contract being signed
- After the interviews, we advise you on the best possible final candidate selection, support you with our expertise in drafting contracts, and accompany you through all issues up to the successful filling of the position.
- We conduct an in-depth and scientifically evaluated personality test among the final candidates to verify a sustainable character fit to your company.
With the completion of the 4th step, the appointment of your vacancy is completed, but not our support. The subsequent Secure phase ensures the long-term success of all measures taken.
As part of the Secure phase, we provide support to our candidates until the end of the probationary period, ensuring that your manager quickly settles into his or her new area of responsibility and optimally fulfills the related tasks. In doing so, we focus on the following areas:
- Maintaining contact in the pre-boarding phase (during the notice period) ensures a further emotionalizing and retainment of candidates
- We accompany the onboarding process on both sides and are in regular contact with you and your new manager.
- We conduct a survey among all parties involved as part of our quality assurance process
- We offer optional onboarding coaching, which boosts the performance of your new corporate member even faster and increases employee loyalty.
Our actions are shaped according to our motto "We create careers and develop companies". We want to create not only satisfied clients and candidates, but enthusiastic brand enthusiast.
