The initial meeting is crucial to assessing your firm's culture. We like to meet with as many of your team members as possible in order to better evaluate a candidate who will truly "fit in" with your company. The initial meeting is followed by a conversation with the hiring directors in order to determine the role, compensation, and incentives. A clear and accurate role description is usually followed up in writing to ensure that we have a correct portrayal of the role.
While client requirements are always in the forefront – we protect the identity of clients as well as methods of candidate search for the benefit of both client and candidate until the point where anonymity is no longer essential to either party.
Once candidates are identified, our comprehensive vetting process commences. We meet with candidates to not only evaluate their skill set but to ensure they are a personality match to your firm culture. We outline the role in great detail to the candidates in order to set accurate expectations on their part. The presentation of a structured shortlist can occur during anytime at the clients' request. Typically SSG presents candidates as soon as they are identified and available.
From the inception of a search to the hiring of the candidate, we strongly encourage feedback from clients as well as alternative avenues of persuasion tailored to your company's strengths.
SSG understands the most difficult aspect for a candidate can be the transition itself. We are dedicated to keeping in contact with your newly hired candidate to ease him or her through the transition process. The result is someone who is committed, dynamic and productive at your firm.
