We Leverage a Broad Range of Resources Our Six Steps to Sharpness
Arthur Diamond believes an organization’s corporate personality, the industry in which it operates and its employee dynamics are predominant factors in establishing the basis for the best candidate criteria. With the firm’s knowledge and experience, we pride ourselves on presenting candidates that will match the client’s right brain, and left.
Our search philosophy has developed from over four decades of positive client experience and feedback. We carefully screen each promising candidate to assess character, intellect, proficiency and management qualities. Our experience in this process allows us to factor in such subtle characteristics as temperament and even sense of humor.
Since the top candidates are not typically looking for a new job, we draw on our broad network of contacts to discreetly identify and speak with potential candidates. Our goal is to ascertain what motivates these desirable individuals and to acquaint them with the opportunity and special challenges of the new position.
This search process yields the most accomplished candidates. We continue a search, regardless of the time and resources required, until we are confident that we have assembled a highly pedigreed short list of possible candidates for the position.
Our experience across multiple industries provides insight and a diversity of ideas and candidates. As veterans of the executive search business, we are able to locate the ideal candidate through targeted networking and personal contact. We diligently network to expand our sources and select the most qualified candidates for each executive selection assignment. Through this approach, we are able to provide high quality candidates and minimize the length of a search.
We help our client determine the position’s basic responsibilities, reporting relationships, goals and objectives, management responsibilities, interpersonal skills needed, and compensation. We will also assess the education, experience, personality and all other qualifications needed to meet the position’s requirements. In addition, we identify and assess the intangibles that equate with success. From these sessions, we develop our “Dream Sheet,” which describes in detail the comprehensive capabilities the new hire should bring.
