The landscape of recruitment and employment has changed drastically over the years, producing a unique challenge for modern businesses that are struggling to navigate the always changing business environment. For many business owners, the choice to outsource recruitment efforts can be a big decision – one that requires extensive research and consideration. From which staffing firm
to work with to determining if you can fit outsourced recruitment into your hiring budget, there are many factors to consider. However, when it comes to staffing, one factor reigns supreme – value. The value that an excellent placement brings to a company simply cannot be underestimated. At IS&T, we understand the value of an ideal fit for executive positions. That’s why we’re dedicated to providing retained searches for some of the most critically important positions for businesses throughout Houston.
Why Choose a Retained Search?
When it comes to filling the most critically important positions for your business, not just anyone will do. For C-level and executive level positions, it takes not just a qualified candidate, but the ideal fit across multiple levels of consideration. At IS&T, our retained search experts excel at building consultative and meaningful relationships with our clients so we can perform highly efficient searches. The result? The best possible match that meets all of your criteria.
High Level Positions Are Perfect For Retained Search
A retained search is ideal for high-level positions in businesses and corporations whose needs are time-sensitive, complex, or require confidentiality or specific expertise. Retained search placements often have an immense impact on company culture, performance, and short- and long-term success, making this type of staffing decision a significant consideration for both the company and the staffing firm. By implementing a retained search, your business is committing to filling a position with not just an okay candidate but the right candidate who is the exact fit you need for your high-level position. Retained searches also send a strong message to candidates that your company is not taking the placement lightly and that the position is one of distinct opportunity.
