When it comes to selecting the right executive search firm to fill a critical role or key staffing need that is not at the executive or management level, you have a CHOICE. In choosing engagement vs contingency recruiting, you can actually get the huge benefits of a laser-laser-focused retained executive search process but at a cost-savings in an Engagement based Search, where you'll receive a shortlist of qualified candidates who can meet or exceed the objectives - OR receive lesser qualified applicants using a contingency based search.
For these types of open positions, you have three choices - overseas based RPO which rarely brings forward anything resembling even a "B player", contingency recruiting which by and large post jobs on Linkedin and delivers active job seekers, or engagement based recruiting, which strictly delivers the top 14% of the workforce - the "A players" who output is 8 to 10 times more than even B players and are NEVER looking at job postings. After review, you easily can see why engagement vs contingency recruiting is a no-brainer in the better choice.
