Working with the Right Search Firm for your Organization

Today I was speaking with a friend who is a recently retired university president. We were talking about his experience with search firms.

“I can tell you Keith, that I really like to deal with a search consultant who wants to work closely with me in understanding our strategic imperatives, threats and opportunities before, during and after presenting me with candidates for a key position in my cabinet.”

This was music to my ears because it is exactly what we strive to accomplish every day here at KULPER & COMPANY.

Meeting hiring goals and objectives…

What are the hiring goals and objectives of your enterprise?
Every company, university or not for profit association we support has a set of goals and objectives that include aims such as: revenue growth, increased profit margin, market share, customer satisfaction and product development. What about the degree of enthusiasm of your colleagues for the work at hand, though…often evidenced in the perception of the enterprise over a longer period of time. How smart are the people in the organization? Do they make a contribution to the industry or field in which they compete or operate? Are the products or service solution they offer considered just OK and priced to sell, or are they truly first rate?

Consistently attracting “A Level” performers is a big challenge, but well-worth the effort.

Surprise Resignation of a key revenue producer?

What to do when you are confronted with a
Surprise Resignation of a key revenue producer?

While she had a contract that included severance and other guarantees from your company there was no provision inserted to prevent her from resigning her job and going over to a competitor—and begin delivering new revenue for them immediately upon arrival.
