Make Client Management A Concern Of The Past

Whether you're a search firm working with a client or a corporate team working with in-house stakeholders, managing expectations can be a challenge. Inviting clients or stakeholders to collaborate on executive search projects can turn that apprehension into an asset. This inclusion can be the first step to resolving or avoiding many of the common issues executive recruiters face when managing expectations.


Create An Unparalleled Efficiency 

Your clients' active participation can make or break your search. This result is because a successful search process requires not only your expertise but the input that only your clients can provide. The more you involve them in the search process, the better chance you have at successfully ending the search with a quality placement. Your clients' involvement enables you to:
  • Increase communication and transparency which in turn builds trust
  • Save time and effort by constantly moving forward with the search rather than backtracking to fix mistakes
  • Establish realistic goals that ensure both you and your clients are on the same page


Keep Clients Engaged Through A Collaborative Platform

The Clockwork platform was specifically designed to bring search firms and their clients together to revolutionize the way that they conduct executive search. Keep them involved every step of the way and increase the likelihood of a successful placement with a multitude of features backed by a proven methodology including:
  • A Client Portal so you can give your clients a comprehensive view of the search project's progress
  • Strategy outline tools to create a search strategy alongside your clients and easily make changes as you go
  • Research strategy tools like longlists, coverage reports and scorecards that allow you to cultivate transparency
  • Custom Fields that enable you to capture unique and vital information during your outreach that matters most
  • Real-time status updates and Custom Reports to prepare your client with the resources they need to make well-informed decisions
  • An interactive and intuitive Mobile App enables clients to collaborate and give valuable feedback even when out-of-pocket.

Clients are amazed and they love it

When I used the old method of sending PDFs over email to my clients, it was a nightmare. Now they are amazed to see that they can just log in, look at candidates and leave comments, whenever it is convenient for them. They love it!

Our clients love the transparency

One of the first clients I exposed to Clockwork called me after he logged in and said, “Dave, I can't believe this. You've lifted the veil on Executive Search! I've been hiring search firms for 15 years and they would come in, meet with me, and then go away. And then some weeks later they come back with some candidates and I had no idea how they did any of it. You're making the process totally transparent.”

Best of Both Worlds, Seamless communication

Search firms tend to either be hesitant to share any candidates that they haven't fully vetted, or they just sling resumes for anyone they come in contact with. Clockwork gives me the visibility into who's in the process along with the full context that it might be an early read with more work to be done. It is the best of both worlds. Moreover, it allows for seamless communication amongst the recruiters, my HR team, and my Hiring Manager, and there's a huge amount of value in this.
