Our Search Methodology

STAGE 1 Qualifying 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.

STAGE 2 Proactive Outreach

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 organizations.

STAGE 3 Development of Candidate Pool

As we uncover “A” Caliber talent in the market, we will begin to screen and interview candidates via phone, zoom, and in person (at our client’s request), leading to a presentation of potential candidates and their backgrounds.

STAGE 4 Candidate 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.

STAGE 5 Final Selection

Final candidates will be interviewed by all necessary staff and stakeholders. Upon selecting a top candidate, The Batten Group will conduct a 360-degree reference check (up to 10 references) and negotiate the offer (if the client prefers).
