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.

The first question we normally receive from a prospective client is —

“Can you help us with our search need?”

Every client comes to the realization that their search requires the right search firm in order for the outcome of the project to be successful. Almost always the client is more comfortable with a search firm that has experience completing searches that are similar in nature to their hiring need. For example a client needing to hire a new CEO will always feel more comfortable retaining the services of a search firm with a solid track record of success completing CEO search assignments. “Success begets success”.

Every client who calls to speak with us about a potential search is concerned about finding the right candidate as soon as possible.

Here is an example of typical scenario:
A strategically critical position opens because a new leader needs the right person in a key position or due to a sudden resignation.

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?

Your global sales leader has taken another job with a key competitor. 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. Let’s not dwell on what you should have or could have put into the terms of the employment contract of your departing sales executive; this is more of a question for your senior HR executive.
