In today’s global marketplace, companies are competing like never before to attract the best leadership talent. The most critical decision a company can make is its investment in human capital, especially their higher-level positions. Making a bad hire in your top management can have devastating consequences for your company. According to a study done by SHRM, this error could cost up to five times the annual salary of the failed hire.
Companies are turning to a retained search approach to make sure that their leadership positions are being filled successfully. A retained search firm invests time and resources in understanding their client’s industry and individual needs. Given the strategic importance of these positions, Search Solution Group understands that there is often a degree of urgency and/or confidentiality that accompanies this type of search. Retained searches are given priority status in terms of the level of consulting talent assigned to conduct the search and the time and resources that are dedicated to the project. When using our retained search approach, Search Solution is dedicated to you and the success of your search engagement.
