What Is Gained From SC&C Pre-Boarding?
Stewart, Cooper & Coon has documented that companies typically spend less than 25% of the time and resources required to conduct a thorough executive recruiting process:
1) Executive level position descriptions often do not highlight skills and value systems required to be compatible with company culture and the current team mix.
2) Internal candidates are not always spotted, owing to a lack of talent intelligence inside the company.
3) Hiring managers may not be fully trained to partner with their retained search firm and often may be tempted to economize with a recruiting partner that under-performs.
4) Informal interviews may be misleading: only 10% of interviewees respond with total honesty.
5) Formal interviews may not be customized to best advantage: 360-degree or psychometric tests are not tailored to the company and their search leadership team's needs.
SC&C’s Pre-Boarding clients are able to spend the quality time and exercise the disciplined process required to ensure successful executive hiring results.
