Why Should I Use a Headhunter? 5 Reasons for Employers and Employees
Relationships are everything in executive search. Employers need a trusted partnership with their executive search firm, and employees need to develop a meaningful relationship with a headhunter to get the best out of their experience.
It is through these relationships that a headhunter is able to what they do best: recruit top talent an employer could not source on their own, and exceed the employer’s expectations.
So why should an employer use an executive search firm?
- Develop a compelling opportunity
What is going to attract the right people to the open position? A headhunter can help pin that down.
- Hire the best available
Every good headhunter has a pipeline of qualified candidates just waiting for the right opportunity. They’re the best people to get the right people in the right seats.
- Save money
A mis-hire can cost you between 3 and 4 times the annual salary. Hire right the first time.
- Avoid surprises
Nothing is more frustrating than having a candidate turn down an offer at the last second and having to start from scratch. The probability of this is greatly reduced with the use of an experienced search professional.
- Gain current market intelligence
How does this role compare to the market? An executive search professional will know exactly how to position the role to compete in the job market.
