Our Approach to Executive Search
At Keller, we offer bespoke executive search services to our clients. Our search strategy is tailored based on our client’s business needs and goals as well as their expectations of candidates.
All potential leaders we source for the client go through a rigorous assessment process to ensure they are the best fit for the role. However, before we engage with any candidates, we first take part in detailed, open, and collaborative discussions with our clients to determine their leadership requirements. This helps streamline the search process and ensures we find the best talent for the role.
Our expert team of executive search consultants also takes more than qualifications and expertise into consideration when searching for potential business leaders. We evaluate each candidate to ascertain whether their personality and management style align with your existing company culture. We also go the extra mile to assist your organization in onboarding your new hire so they integrate smoothly into their role.
Besides identifying candidates who meet our clients’ executive recruitment needs, we also emphasize diversity and inclusion throughout the recruiting process.
Once we finalize our initial search and assessments, we present the shortlisted candidates to our client, who ultimately decides who to hire to lead their team.
To summarize, our comprehensive executive search process includes a thorough understanding of our client’s organizational goals, operations, and industry nuances. Using these parameters, our executive search team utilizes our global network and in-depth market knowledge to identify candidates who resonate with our client’s leadership needs.
The Advantages of Partnering with Keller for your Executive Recruitment Needs
Engaging the services of an executive search firm like Keller can offer numerous advantages for companies, especially when seeking the best talent for senior leadership and management positions. Here are some of the primary benefits that we can offer your business:
Cost efficiency Although we will charge you an upfront fee for our executive search services, the long-term value of hiring the right leader – who can drive your business toward success – will far outweigh this investment.
Time and resource savings The process of recruiting an executive can use up valuable time and resources that your company’s human resources department may not have to spare. Hiring an executive search firm like ours can expedite the process, ensuring that the position is filled faster and with the right candidate for the job.
Thorough vetting Our team of executive recruiters has rigorous assessment processes in place, such as background and reference checks, in-depth interviews, and skills assessments, to ensure that all candidates are thoroughly screened before we introduce them to our clients.
Executive search expertise Executive search firms like Keller specialize in identifying, assessing, and recruiting top-tier talent at the executive level. As such, we are familiar with the nuances of executive roles, which are usually very different from mid- or entry-level positions.
Industry knowledge Many executive search firms specialize in specific industries or sectors. Keller is no exception. This affords us deep insights into an industry’s trends, challenges, opportunities, and talent pool.
Market insights We can offer insights into what competitors are doing, current market compensation trends, and other industry-specific knowledge that can be invaluable during the recruitment process.
Access to a wider network Part of our success in finding the right leaders can be attributed to our extensive network of passive candidates – professionals who are not actively seeking a new job but might be open to the right opportunity. This broadens the pool of potential candidates beyond what your organization’s internal HR might have access to.
Onboarding support Our services do not end with the right candidate placement. We go the extra mile to assist with the onboarding process to ensure your new executive transitions smoothly into the existing position at your company.
Negotiation skills Our team of executive search recruiters are experts in negotiating compensation packages, ensuring that both your business and the executive are satisfied with the terms.
Objective assessment As an external entity, we offer an unbiased perspective on candidates that is devoid of any internal company politics or preconceptions. This can lead to a more objective evaluation and recommendation of potential candidates.
Unconditional guarantee If an executive we place does not meet your expectations or leaves your company within the first 90-180 days, we pledge to find a replacement at no additional cost.
Confidentiality Keller exercises the utmost discretion when there is a sensitive role to be filled, ensuring that news of the vacancy does not prematurely reach the market, competitors, or employees.
In addition to all these benefits making the executive search process smoother and more efficient, Keller offers fast, reliable services with rigorous attention to detail, recognizing that every organization is unique and providing tailor-made solutions for each client.
Overall, engaging an executive search firm is a strategic move by companies to ensure they find the right business leaders while also potentially saving time, money, and resources.
