Managing the Process
Conducting the initial search is only the first step in helping your company find the talent it needs to compete and grow. The Chatham Group saves you time and money by managing almost every aspect of the hiring process including contacting, pre-screening and presenting candidates.
Once potential candidates are identified, we make contact with them on a direct, personal basis. This phase, possibly the most critical time of the search, involves two activities:
Identification of Candidates
The Chatham Group becomes your spokesperson, representing your company in the same professional manner in which you would represent it yourself. We present the objectives, opportunities, responsibilities and advancement potential associated with the positions you need to fill. We compare the qualifications of the candidates against the comprehensive profiles developed during the planning stage. Only when a strong mutual interest between you and the candidate is determined does the process continue.
Presentation of Impact Players
Once our thorough screening process is completed and candidates have been evaluated, only the outstanding impact players are presented for your consideration. We also assist you in scheduling and monitoring the interview process with your management team.
The Decision and the Offer
While you alone make the decision on the best talent for your organization, we can assist you during this critical phase. Reference checks provide you with valuable information, which helps you make the right choice. We advise and facilitate communications on salary terms, relocation and benefits. We also assist the candidate through the emotional process of resigning his or her present position and dealing with counteroffers.
