Our Headhunting Process

Our Services

At Keller, we are committed to helping companies achieve long-term success through our stellar headhunting services. Our services are tailored to the specific needs of each of our clients, breaking away from the generic one-fits-all approach to headhunting and recruitment many agencies use.

In our nearly two decades of collective personal and professional experience, we have come to understand that these types of generic approaches to recruitment often fail to meet client requirements and result in subpar placements. Instead, Keller offers customized headhunting solutions unlike any other.At Keller, we value the privacy and security of our clients.

Our services are conducted with the utmost respect for the safety and confidentiality of our clientele, and we commit ourselves to responsible and ethical practices in everything we do.

Our Process

To ensure that our searches are successful, we begin our process by identifying the business’ needs and goals, its organizational culture, the role requirements, and what is expected from the candidate.

Once these parameters have been established, the next step for our team is sourcing industry experts who meet, or perhaps even exceed, our client’s hiring requirements.

All candidates we identify during this search step go through a rigorous assessment and screening process, which involves extensive background, criminal, and reference checks. We also assess candidates for other, more intricate factors, including their cultural alignment, management style, motivational drivers, personality types, and work ethic.

This results in a shortlist of talent ideally suited to our client’s needs. The final step in our process is providing said client with this shortlist so that they may conduct interviews and make the final hiring decision.

Why Does Keller Use a Customized Approach?

Keller’s approach to recruitment and executive search has been influenced profoundly by the personal and professional experiences of our team members.
Initially, Keller stuck to a one-size-fits-all method in our searches, which had worked for the few clients we’d had thus far. However, our recruiters still remember vividly the project which created a turning point for us.

We were tasked with placing a senior executive for an important client, and the generalized method we had relied on until that point failed. The candidate we placed did not have the skills and experience needed for the role and struggled to adjust to the company’s unique culture.

While this project was not a success, it helped us realize the significant limitations of using a generic recruitment strategy, and emphasized the importance of providing our clientele with professional, tailor-made recruitment solutions. Shifting our strategy to focus on each client’s unique requirements allowed Keller to foster lasting client relationships and achieve the successful track record we are known for.

We have helped numerous clients over the years to find their ideal leaders, and Keller has become synonymous with top-tier recruitment and executive search as a result.

What Happens if Keller is Unable to Fill a Role?

Keller’s team goes above and beyond to ensure a successful placement is made. However, we acknowledge that there may be rare occasions wherein a placement we make fails to meet the expectations of our clients. For these situations, Keller offers a 90-day guarantee to replace any candidate who does not fulfill client requirements.
