The BEST Process

The BEST Human Capital Process

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

BEST practice focus and in-depth industry subject matter expertise enable us to take the pulse of the industry­ in real-time to provide accurate information. We continuously gain the actionable data that allows us to proactively assist your business, identify and deliver C-level positions and top talent, and prepare 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 Human Capital and Advisory Group 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 resource advisory is a science, not a transaction. Our recruiting process leads to a consultative and trusted advisor relationship with our partners. Joined together with our subject matter expertise and continual 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 the BEST Leaders

Before the search begins, we work side-by-side with you to conduct a strategic human capital SWOT analysis that defines the culture, behaviors, key performance indicators (KPIs), business challenges, opportunities, and strategic company objectives. BEST then creates strategic recruitment and human capital plans. From there, we can form an ideal position profile and behavioral interview assessment to ensure we’re on track to finding leading industry candidates before taking the first step in your search.

BEST has a firm grasp on the dynamics and nuances of the industries targeted, and how they will impact your hiring goals. Supporting our experience is our breadth of reach. We cast a wide net, actively screening candidates from across the nation and globally.

Best Behavior Interviewing Models

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 a 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®.

The BEST Process

Qualifying the 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. Beyond the requisite qualifications, we also take your needs analysis, behaviors, and position profile into consideration while assessing what motivates our candidate community before presenting them to our clients.

Delivering the 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. Our BEST Guarantee provides clients with additional support. Should a candidate leave on their own volition or be dismissed due to poor performance before the stipulated time frame – BEST will replace at no additional fee.

BEST Follow-Up & Feedback

Even after the professional starts their new role with your company, we take the time to ensure all parties involved are satisfied with the outcome. We address a critical retention strategy step with the development of an onboard schedule inclusive of a 90-day follow up plan. Following-up proactively not only heads off a potential candidate/client disconnect, but it also helps us rectify any loose ends that may have gone unnoticed along the way. It also helps refine our combined process for continued executive recruiting and human capital projects to assist your company’s growth and success.
