The KD Search & Associates Difference
When faced with the choice of filling a position unaided or with the assistance of a professional search firm, the decision is not always clear. Typically, a search firm would be selected to assist an organization in filling positions at the Board of Directors, CEO, COO, CFO, President, Senior Vice President, Vice President, Director and Manager levels.
Know what you’re looking for! In hiring, everything is situational – and seldom is a situation replicable from company to company or across different points in time. The competencies required for your critical roles must evolve along with your organization – or they become irrelevant.
Many unassisted searches only reach individuals who are actively pursuing alternative employment. However, KDSearch & Associates will actively identify and recruit people who are challenged and successful in their current positions. Typically, these individuals are not actively seeking a new position and thus, they are not reading the classified section of the Sunday newspaper or searching online and will not respond to the advertisement for employment in your organization.
During the early phase of the search process, we will assist your organization in developing an accurate Position Profile. And become very familiar with your organization and your current needs. We attract successful talent by marketing your opportunity to them. We do not wait for the people to contact us. We research the market place and directly contact the best talent available.
Finally, when retaining a search firm, you are retaining a consultant for your organization. In a sense, you “have purchased our time” for this project. We are an extension of your organization and will work on the project until the position is filled.
KD Search & Associates has a single mission; to match the track record and personality of an individual with the needs of your company. What most companies may undertake for the first time or, perhaps, once a year, KD Search & Associates does every day. We bring over forty years of experience in the business to every search we conduct!
