What are the Executive Search processes?

The search process starts with the search and rigorous understanding of the business and the needs of the client-company. After this direct and personal study, our consultants will project the best search process.

Among several key information for the adequacy of the work, we can obtain data on:

Company and market: peculiarities of the client's market segment and its positioning, including mission, vision and values.

Organizational structure: hierarchical structures, policies and management guidelines.

At this stage, our consultants seek to describe the aspects of the position and the knowledge, skills and attitudes that the selected professional should present. The verified aspects are:

Job profile: reason for hiring, objectives, responsibilities, challenges, expected performance indicators, hierarchical position and career goals.

Necessary knowledge and skills: academic background, professional experience, technical domain, specific knowledge.

Attitudes and personality characteristics: definition of behavioral attitudes to be identified in the professional to ensure proper job performance and integration with the work group.

Intended salary and benefits: definition of direct and variable compensation, as well as the benefits inherent to the position.

This phase refers to the activity of mapping the labor market as a way of identifying, attracting and analyzing professionals with a job profile.

Mapping takes place in two stages. :

Target list : In-depth study of the competing market or similar activities of the Client Company to identify the so-called “talent barns”.

Talent identification and approach: identifying and attracting the potential candidate.

The selection stage is the moment for investigating the professional's career, technical and behavioral skills, as well as market references.

The selection is held in two stages:

At this stage, professionals who are in agreement with the needs of the Client Company will be invited to participate in individual interviews. A thorough investigation of the candidate's professional history, technical and behavioral skills, career development and key achievements will also be undertaken. The selection stage is complemented by talent behavioral inventories and ends with the finalists being presented to the Client Company.

Professional references: at this stage our consultants seek professional references from previous companies that the professional has worked.

After performing the selective phase, 4Search will present the report of the finalists showing the technical and behavioral profile according to the needs of the Client-Company. The report contains a set of information about the selected professional, with enough information to justify the presentation.

At this stage, our team monitors the interview process and negotiations that take place between the Client-Company and the finalists.

Our consultants help to promote an open and transparent conversation between everyone involved. Thus, if the process evolves into negotiation, we ensure that it is advantageous for both parties.

The On-boarding Coaching stage begins shortly after hiring and extends throughout the project warranty period.

During On-boarding Coaching, our consultants advise both the Client-Company and the hired professional to ensure adaptation between them and increased performance.
