We find, contact and involve top profiles (CEO, Senior Executive, Executive) in our searches. Given the extremely confidential nature of these positions, we operate with extreme confidentiality without ad serving, instead – thanks to our vast network developed over the years – we contact the best profiles on the market directly. These profiles are identified in a list of companies previously agreed with our client in order to guarantee the right applications for the product sector of interest.
SEARCH AND SELECTION OF MANAGER PROFILES
Searching for Manager and senior Manager, we evaluate the most effective methodology to be applied in agreement with our customers. In which case, in addition to direct search, we can use ad serving that will reach and evaluate a large number of applications in a short time.
ORGANIZATIONAL & COMPENSATION SURVEYS
These surveys allow our customers to understand the organization of their competitors and their compensation policies with respect to a given position or a specific business area. The knowledge of this information allows companies to compare themselves with other ones and therefore to take corrective and improving actions.
Mapping is a crucial activity for customers who want to monitor the market evolution of a particular and important professional profile or who plan to be prepared for any organizational need. In which case, we define with our client a target list of companies within which to develop the mapping then we generate a document containing relevant information on the identified professionals (position, sector of responsibility, compensation package, flexibility, notice time and/or particular contractual restrictions).
Consultancy aimed at analyzing, evaluating and increasing the effectiveness of the company organization with respect to its business objectives. We provide practical and customized solutions based on the history and identity of our customers according to their needs. Our consultancy regards the whole organizational supply chain, with particular reference to the re-engineering of the production processes and to the building of the main HR processes.
