Resources to help take your Executive Search firm to the next level of success.
Here at Clockwork we often extol the virtues of client collaboration. In our Executive Search Performance Benchmark Report, we can clearly see that projects with online client collaboration have a 21% greater chance of ending with a successful placement. We’ve come to consider it as self-evident that collaboration is better.
Yet, when you peel back a layer there’s even more value to collaborating. It's not just better because the client is kept in the loop, expectations are set, and possible missteps are avoided. The search team actually does better work too!
2020 has been challenging in many respects, and we've all had to adjust to changes throughout the year. One thing that hasn't changed is Clockwork's commitment to continually upgrading our users' experience. Throughout the year, our team has been busy developing new and improved solutions that give our users more power with less effort.
If you’ve been in the executive search industry for a while then you know the importance of having a process in place for managing your projects and business leads. What many new executive search professionals just entering this industry may not realize is what a good executive search process should look like. Furthermore, many don’t realize the importance that a good process can have on the success of their growing business.
So you’ve successfully placed the top candidate and have (hopefully) exceeded your client’s expectations. It is cause for celebration, but rather than sitting back and wiping your hands clean of the search project, it is key to stay engaged. In this moment of success, when the client is most impressed, there is a big opportunity to find future search work. In fact, this stage is so full of business development opportunities that, when done right, you’ll have the work coming to you rather than you having to seek it out. Let's take a look at the top 4 most important action items after the search is complete. And be sure to follow along with our Search Closeout Checklist.
