The executive search service that we perform can be tailored to suit the needs of the client and the business. During the engagement, we can limit our search to local talents or expand it to include global candidates, whichever the client prefers.

In order to perform a successful search, we also take local nuances into consideration that could affect the outcome of the engagement. These factors include management styles, organizational culture, and personalities.

Any candidate we wish to present to a client needs to have undergone an extensive assessment to ensure they are ideally capable and culturally fit to potentially join the organization. This type of search can take plenty of time and resources away from HR departments. In small- to medium-sized businesses, HR departments may not even have enough resources to perform the search.

Partnering with Keller Belgium ensures that companies do not have to expend their resources or put strain on their HR departments. Our team has all the tools and resources needed to headhunt on behalf of the client.

Our consultants are readily accessible at any point in the executive search process. This allows our clients to raise issues that may crop up during the engagement, so that our team can immediately address them without causing a delay in the search.

Our team of professional recruiters also goes the extra mile to send clients updates about the progress of the search.

At Keller, we value the safety of both the candidates and the client’s company. As such, we do not reveal more personal or sensitive information than what is necessary. We also do not publicly announce the search to prevent any potential backlash from stakeholders.

Our Executive Search Process

A large part of what we do during a C-level search involves balancing various elements, such as local customs and leadership styles, to ensure that a talent integrates well into a company. These factors are discussed during the initial meeting with the client and relevant stakeholders.

After the hiring parameters have been established, our consultants will begin searching for candidates through traditional and non-traditional channels. We will also utilize our extensive networks of contacts for candidate referrals.

All talents who show interest in the position will be extensively assessed and evaluated. Our assessment involves background checks, credit checks, reference checks, and confirmation of past performances and talents.

Candidates who pass the assessment are shortlisted and presented to the client. The organization can then conduct its own interviews and evaluations before hiring the new talent. Should they fail to find a suitable candidate, we will offer to redo the search.

Our team can also conduct interviews and assessments with candidates who may not be able to attend face-to-face meetings through our partners based in many major cities across the globe and in Belgium.
