Increasingly, corporate clients ask us to vet internal candidates by creating a panel of external peers. In the past, companies used retained firms to do this, at great expense, or tasked unwitting contingency firms that sent a confused message to the candidate market.
Our project-based model solves their problem nicely. Our research recruiters go to market and assemble a panel of peer candidates to provide a reference point for our client’s hiring committee. Our client then decides if they want us to recruit some or all of those in the panel.
The results represent a market survey of a discrete talent niche, and can be used to inform compensation, title, management scope, and diversity considerations. ~
