You know you need the best professionals and executives BUT here are your problems:

  • Speed to hire – It often takes too long. Projects don’t wait and operations can’t stop.
  • Quality candidates – You’re just not getting the best candidates. There must be better people out there.
  • Have you covered the market? You don’t know.
  • Need foreign talent since not enough local talent. Who can you trust to deliver?
  • Retention – Will the person fit and stay? The cost of hiring the wrong person is very significant!
  • Inconsistent recruitment – Suppliers don’t fully understand your needs. Internal processes cause unnecessary delays. Recruiters don’t deliver consistently. You lose great people to competitors & have to start again!
