THE HEALTHSEARCH PARTNERS PROCESS IS CALLED PRO|FILE ℠
It begins with a thorough in-person collaboration with our clients, developing a comprehensive analysis of
the position to be filled, the culture of the company, and the attributes of the ideal candidate. The goal is to create a sound foundation on which to screen candidates and generate interest in the position. The Pro|File℠
process has proven to put the right person in the right position, time and time again.
At the outset of the retained search, HealthSearch Partners will prepare a detailed engagement letter that clearly identifies the scope of services to be offered, including both client and consultant responsibilities as well as the scheduled fees and expenses.
In order to gain important knowledge and insight about the specific recruitment position, the HealthSearch
Partners consultant(s) will visit with the hiring executive and/or the Selection Committee.
A Pro|File℠ synopsis will be prepared that outlines the duties, responsibilities and reporting relationships for the position, as well as the education, experience and personal characteristics sought in the ideal candidate.
We will conduct necessary research to develop a target list of prospective candidates and sources. We employ resources such as national professional associations, regional and local trade organizations and societies, and the vast depth of the Internet to identify ideal candidates.
We will contact as many prospective candidates as possible to discuss the opportunity. We actively recruit
well-qualified individuals and encourage referrals from candidates either not interested or not qualified.
We conduct in-depth, personal interviews with potential candidates to obtain a thorough understanding of their backgrounds and career goals, judging their suitability against the established position specifications.
We prepare a written biographical and interview summary, and present the information to the client under a "Personal and Confidential" cover. We consult and advise the hiring executive and/or Selection Committee throughout the interview selection process.
We submit regular written and verbal reports to the appropriate representatives throughout the course of the search.
We directly contact superiors, peers and subordinates from current and past employers of the final candidate(s). Our reference checks verify factual data and explore strengths and weaknesses to gain insight into personal and professional style. Our findings are summarized in writing and presented to the client.
We verify the education of candidates and present written evidence on the Confidential Candidate Report summary for each final candidate.
We will assist in structuring and negotiating the terms of employment. Our counsel can include compensation negotiations, offer letter preparation and verbal extension of offers.
FOLLOW-UP AND ONBOARDING
After a search is completed, we regularly communicate with both the placement and the hiring representative or HR partner to help ensure a smooth transition. This often takes the form of executive
