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!
