Nashville, TN, United States, 2008/01/07 - Most executive search firms keep their quality outcomes private. We’ve published our quality results here. Will other executive search firms do the same?.
Every executive search firm has performance data readily available that defines their recruiting effectiveness, according to Paul Frankenberg, President and CEO of Kraft Search Associates, LLC, a retained Healthcare executive search firm based in Nashville, TN. However, most firms do not divulge this information to anyone outside of their inner circle. And, the reasons are obvious. Releasing detailed information that defines the firm’s recruiting efficiency, 12-month post-placement retention rates, and repeat client information could adversely impact their firm’s image and sales process.
Kraft Search is focused on meeting the need for high-quality senior executive talent in the Healthcare industry and is keenly aware of the increasing trend within Healthcare to effectively monitor, manage, and report on a variety of metrics pertaining to key quality outcomes. “It’s happening in more and more segments of the Healthcare industry and it will continue to grow,” reports Mr. Frankenberg. “As a result, our clients have a right to expect the same level of accountability from their suppliers of high-value executive talent as they require of themselves.”
Since its inception, Kraft Search Associates has been an innovator in linking a client’s business strategy to the executive search process and outcome. And, that strategy has paid off! Kraft Search Associates was named one of the top five Southeastern-based firms in Modern Healthcare magazine’s “Top 25 Healthcare Retained Search Firms” ranking.
Kraft Search Associates is proud to report its key quality measures for 2007, as follows:
The company achieved a 98% candidate retention rate for all newly hired executive’s first 12 months of employment.
The company averaged only 65-days from initiating each search until final candidates are delivered to our client.
Approximately 85% of recruiting revenues were generated from repeat clients.
Kraft Search Associates is one of the most productive search firms in The Modern Healthcare ranking, beating several recruiting industry leaders.
“Quality results provide a competitive advantage, and our results demonstrate our commitment to remain one of the top performing executive search firm in terms of our ability to consistently deliver high-caliber retained executive search services to investors and operators throughout the Healthcare industry,” according to Mr. Frankenberg.
