"Reinventing the retained executive search experience": It's a pretty bold claim, but what does it really mean? At Maitland Partners, we looked at the standard retained model and asked our clients, "what don't you like about it?"
The answers: Too heavy a reliance on job boards and candidates in transition, a low understanding of the value of assessments, little skill or structure to interviews, a fee structure (% of compensation) that can result in significantly higher fees than initially anticipated and monthly expense fees that reflect overhead cost, not search-related expenses.
- World class research performed by highly qualified professionals experienced at sourcing executive talent that aren't necessarily looking for their next job
- Detailed assessment tools and behavioral interviews completed by experienced Organizational Development professionals
- A Tiered Flat-Fee structure - what we agree to up front is what you pay
- Expense charges that relate to the search only (travel, video conferencing, etc) - with no "general expense" charges
The end result - a full service retained executive search experience that saves clients thousands of dollars!
