- Candidate Assessments
RefineValue provides clients with an accurate and candidate assessment of its capabilities to perform your search. That assessment includes a firm’s internal resources, knowledge of the function and industry in which the search will be conducted, and an understanding of the client’s cultural or regulatory environment.
Clients should be sure to meet with the individual consultant and the team who will handle the search assignment and request that the search consultant disclose the resources available to support the assignment and the sourcing strategy.
- Understanding the Organization and its Hiring Objectives
RefineValue develops a thorough understanding of the organization and its hiring objectives. Effective, successful searches require that the consultant possess a deep knowledge and understanding of a client’s unique executive talent needs, organizational culture, customer strategy and regulatory challenges.
- High-Level Consultative Relationship
RefineValue works in partnership with a client to help define the assignment, identify candidates, assess using sophisticated methodology and select and onboard those best suited through comprehensive, quality-assured search processes.
- Information in Strict Confidence
The executive search process requires that clients divulge highly sensitive information. The ethical search consultant treats any and all information with the utmost confidentiality while only providing necessary information to candidates.
- Detailed Status Reports on Progress of the Search
Depending on the position to be filled, the availability of talent, and a host of other factors, a successful search can take anywhere from a few weeks to several months. RefineValue ensures effective, ongoing communication regarding all aspects of the search, including market response, list of candidates being developed, and any potential challenges that may inhibit the search.
- Candidate Presentation
RefineValue presents qualified candidates who fit the position and the culture of the client organization. Our Executive search consultants present a range of qualified candidates and partner with clients in assisting with their internal assessment of candidates, including interviewing techniques that avoid unconscious gender bias.
