HR Consulting

Mapping & Sourcing

This is a cost effective approach to executive and senior technical searches.

Once the scope of the search is established, we develop a sourcing strategy to meet the requirements. We employ a variety of techniques to fully explore the target market and build a strong candidate pool.

We conduct research using industry and professional directories, association rosters, national computer databases and various social media sites, in addition to our own networks and databases. We research, identify, and contact individuals employed in appropriate roles who may be personally interested and/or able to provide constructive leads and referrals. A copy of the final map is provided to the Recruiter and/or hiring manager.

A mapping & sourcing campaign is 30 – 45 days and involves making as many calls as necessary to identify qualified candidates. We establish a list of “A” candidates from initial phone contact and/or resume review, provide weekly reports to recruitment team representative and/or hiring manager.

Internal Sourcing Model

If your company is looking for ways of shaving money off your recruitment budget, you’ll want to consider implementing an internal sourcing model. Our consultants have experience helping companies eliminate 3rd party usage, saving them between 1 – 3 million dollars a year in 3rd party fees. If your company spends in excess of $200,000/year in 3rd party fees, an internal sourcing model is worth considering. This model guarantees saving and better cultural fit of candidates for your company.

Customizable Exit Interviews

When an employee leaves your organization, an exit interview, conducted by one of our seasoned interviewers:

  • Establishes what your organization is doing well
  • Pinpoints areas where you can improve in your organization
  • Identifies companies that are attracting your employees
  • Explains why employee are leaving

Exit interviews are conducted face-to-face, or held over the phone since these two mediums have the highest response rate and allows us to explore responses and ask probing questions.  We are happy to work with your team to customize an exit interview that provides the data needed for making improvements.

Reference Checks

With years of experience working internally on recruitment teams, our consultants know the importance of fast, reliable, reference checks.  You can be assured that your reference checks are conducted by seasoned professionals who know how to spot any red flagged answers and how to ask probing questions.  We customize your reference checks so they meet your company’s needs.  Our consultants are available evenings and weekends to ensure references are reached and conducted as quickly as possible.  We also provide updates regularly to stakeholders of your choice as to the progress of the references.
