OUR SEARCH METHODOLOGY
STAGE1Qualifying the Position
The first step in an efficient, successful search process is identifying the culture and unique attributes of your organization, the nuances that will create a positive hire for client and candidate.
Our process begins with extensive market research and analysis to understand your organization’s needs.
If necessary, we will conduct an on-site meeting with key stakeholders to ensure a perfect match.
Using our knowledge of your organization and market, we’ll create an appropriate description for the position.
Once the position has been qualified, our extensive outreach will begin, starting by connecting with top professionals in nonprofit, business, government, and academia, including targeted organization.
STAGE3Development of Candidate Pool
As we uncover “A” Caliber talent in the market, we will begin to screen and interview candidates via phone and in person (at our client’s request), leading to a presentation of potential candidates and their backgrounds.
STAGE4Candidate Selection & Interviews
When qualified candidates have been presented, final candidates will then be selected for the first round of interviews. We will help to tailor the interview process based on your talent needs.
Final candidates will be interviewed by all necessary staff and stakeholders. Upon selection of a top candidate, The Batten Group will conduct a 360-degree reference check (up to 10 references), make the offer to the candidate and handle appropriate negotiations.
