We're aware that there are numerous ways to determine if someone is right for a job position, but YES Partners believes that a global executive search firm is key to getting the most of its potential. What does that mean, and why is it important to make the distinction between different approaches? A recent article on Forbes can be used as a way to learn some of the differences if your company has never dealt with this issue before.
The writer of the article, Ken Sundheim, specifically discusses why one would pick a retained recruitment firm (that is kept exclusive and paid upfront) as opposed to other "contingency" options that may give a company slightly more freedom.
"When you work with a retained recruiter, you do have to pay an upfront guaranteed fee and there is more risk associated with that account," Sundheim writes. He goes on to say that the advantage is that this retained firm will be more loyal to you and, theoretically anyway, devote more time to your case.
That's a virtue that any recruitment firm should attempt to embody: there's no reason not to make your customer feel like they're at the top of your list, in any business. YES Partners proudly offers the determination and resources of a retained service alongside the more affordable kinds of rates you might expect from a contingent recruiter. And since we don't charge retainer fees with our no-risk model, companies searching for executives can think of what we provide as a pleasing blend of these two schools of thought.
Finding people is easy, but finding the RIGHT people is not. YES Partners helps companies FIND the right people – for all company functions, across many industries and globally.
