The traditional executive recruiting contingency model is broken. The days of companies hiring multiple contingency recruiting firms, who are simply in a race to plug a person into the job, get a big pay day, and move on with no thought as to how the candidate will properly fit into the organization are coming to an end. This model is causing headaches for business owners and human resource professionals in all industries due to the increasingly fluid employment market, and the costs and missed opportunities resulting from employee turnover. For candidates, it is causing unnecessary career mistakes and moves. There has to be a better way.

At BEST, we are engaged in all aspects of the executive search process, starting with defining a tailor-made search strategy utilizing our proprietary BEST BEHAVIORS® assessment tools all the way through candidate onboarding. BEST will continue consultation and follow-up months after the hire, since our success is based on the impact and long-term commitment of the executive hired.

Our goal is to find the most qualified candidate. Maybe it is time you got away from the old “plug-and-play” recruiting model and give BEST a try.
