BEST human capital, industry ­knowledge and expertise to help clients proactively identify human capital talent and strategies ahead of the need.

BEST Human Capital & Advisory Group invests in relevancy and information as the keys to delivering real value in retained executive recruiting and human capital advisory. BEST functional practice focus and in-depth industry subject matter expertise not only keeps BEST relevant, but enables us to take the pulse of the industry­ in real time so as to be providing accurate information. We continuously gain the actionable information that allows us to proactively assist our clients, identifying and delivering C-level positions and other top professional talent, preparing succession, retention and organizational development plans, even ahead of the need at times.

The BEST Advisory approach delivers the right people at the right time.

BEST has delivered high-level, critical hires and human capital advisory for some of the world’s leading companies in our target industries. To us, executive recruiting and human capital advisory is a science, not a transaction. Our process and recruiting methodologies are based on a consultative trusted advisor relationship with our partners. Joined together with our subject matter expertise and constant communications with our network contacts, we match the right people with the right companies or identify human capital solutions for future organizational health – time and again.

Identifying BEST Leaders

Before the search begins, we work side-by-side with you to conduct a strategic human capital SWOT analysis which identifies the culture, behaviors, Key Performance Indicators, business challenges, opportunities and strategic company objectives to BEST develop the recruitment or human capital plan. From there, we can form an ideal position profile and behavioral interview assessment to ensure we’re on track to find leading candidates before we even take the first step in your search.

The BEST subject matter experts have a firm grasp on the dynamics and nuances of the industries targeted, and how they will impact your hiring goals. Supporting our depth of insight is our breadth of reach. We cast a wide net, actively screening candidates across the nation.

Best Behaviors

We assess and “scorecard” each candidate based on their personal, professional and financial goals along with behaviors and motivations. By aligning your specific needs with this candidate profile, we can more accurately pinpoint and elicit mutually beneficial, lasting relationships. We call this proprietary process of proven behavioral tools, in tandem with specialized assessment tools we have created: BEST BEHAVIORS®.

Behavioral based interviewing is assessment based on discovering how the interviewee acted in specific employment-related situations. The logic is that how you behaved in the past will predict how you will behave in the future i.e. past performance predicts future performance.

In a traditional interview process used by many companies the candidate is asked traditional questions which typically have straight forward answers like “What are your strengths and weaknesses?” or “What major challenges and problems did you face? How did you handle them?” or “Describe a typical work week.”  The answers do not indicate necessarily how a candidate did or does behave but elicit answers that can be scripted and or subjective.

Qualifying BEST Candidates

By identifying strong candidates from the outset, we can provide an efficient and precise route to your next middle management, technical and C-level executive, or anyone in between. Every candidate we introduce undergoes a detailed qualification assessment to ensure nothing is overlooked. Beyond the requisite qualifications, we also take your needs analysis, behaviors and position profile into consideration while assessing what motivates our candidate community before we present them to our clients.

Delivering BEST Talent

We go beyond identifying and qualifying candidates to make sure you’re equipped to make the best choice possible. Our support extends to behavioral assessments, client and candidate interview debriefings, reference checking, counteroffer consultation, and final offer preparation and closing.  BEST guarantee provides clients with additional support should a candidate leave on their own volition or be dismissed with viable cause of poor performance before stipulated time frame – BEST will replace at no additional fee.

BEST Follow-Up & Feedback

Even after the professional begins their new role with your company, we take the time to make certain all parties involved are satisfied with the outcome. We address a key retention strategy step with the development of an on-board schedule inclusive of a 90 day follow up plan.  Not only does following-up proactively head off potential candidate/client disconnect, it helps us all rectify any loose ends that may have gone unnoticed along the way and further refine our combined process for continued executive recruiting and human capital projects to assist your company’s growth and success.
