In today’s highly demanding business landscape, selecting the executive leaders who will best drive your organization forward is one of the most critical challenges you’ll face. In order to secure the right talent, you must first identify the right executive search partner—one who truly understands what’s at stake and shares in your unwavering passion for hiring highly impactful and culturally aligned leaders. To that end, RRG’s best-in-class talent acquisition team is poised to successfully navigate even the most challenging senior-level search assignments. We apply a proven, research-first search strategy that is designed to identify and attract only the highest-caliber candidates, while adding critical value to your business throughout every stage of the search process.
Our team understands that every organization has a unique story to tell, and that when presented in an authentic and compelling manner, those stories are what attract the very best candidates. That’s why we begin each search with a thorough dialogue that enables us to develop a deep understanding of your organizational history, culture, and goals, while also providing us an opportunity to discuss the qualifications and experience you are looking for in an ideal candidate.
Once we gain alignment on a target profile, we launch into the core of our search process, which is carefully designed to both find and attract the very best candidates. We begin with a thorough assessment of your competitive landscape as well as an evaluation of other markets in which viable candidates may be working. As a boutique firm, RRG has no blocking issues, which means that we can recruit from virtually 100% of your competitors.
Next, we leverage a structured and highly-proactive direct outreach and networking strategy to develop a robust list of highly-qualified candidates. Based on initial conversations and screenings, we narrow down the slate of candidates. Because 80-90% of candidates agree that a positive or negative candidate experience can change their minds about a role or company, we take extreme care not only in accurately vetting all candidates, but also in delivering a positive and professional impression of your organization in the marketplace.
As top prospects rise to the surface, we next overlay best-in-class scientific assessments and face-to-face interviews to zero in on a “shortlist” of technically and culturally aligned recruits that we endorse for client interviews. Prior to those interviews, we provide you with detailed Executive Profiles so that each interviewer has a strong understanding of the candidates’ backgrounds and can prepare for each interview accordingly. Once a final candidate is chosen, we conduct detailed 360-degree reference checks, and finally, work as an intermediary to assure a positive dialogue surrounding an offer extension, which significantly increases the likelihood that your candidate accepts the opportunity. We also make sure that no issues with counteroffers arise.
RRG’s commitment extends well beyond the placement of a candidate. Research has shown that key executives who have been expertly on-boarded produce at a higher level, yet two-thirds of companies offer executives only a basic orientation, and less than two percent have a systematic approach to accelerated integration. That’s why we offer to partner with our clients for what we call “Executive Inboarding”. Our proprietary process aids in seamlessly and efficiently integrating new executives into organizations to allow for more immediate contributions and greater job satisfaction. More specifically, we offer to pair one of our RRG certified management coaches with each placed candidate for the first 90 days of his/her employment to optimize the on-boarding process by ensuring a successful kickoff, facilitating immediate contribution, and further developing leadership competencies. We believe this complementary service demonstrates our unfettered commitment to getting the right people into your organization and making sure each relationship will be fruitful for both employee and employer.
