You EXPECT RESULTS from your Retained Executive Search Firm

Executive hiring managers expect the recruiter to listen, be inquisitive, and get to know the client's need - not just working off a job spec. What we do in retained executive search begins with the Discovery Step to learn about the client’s history, your vision, financing and market share, why the role is being filled, determine the objectives of the role, and use scientifically based psychometric analysis to determine potential candidates’ role fit and team fit.We are often called upon when other search firms fail to deliver the “A players” that clients want or fail to deliver a shortlist of candidates that can truly meet or exceed the objectives of the role.

According to Leadership IQ and Mercer Management, studies have shown that between 46% of executives fail within the first 18 months and over 90% of the time, it’s due to interpersonal communications issues resulting from simply not fitting team dynamics. NextGen's retained executive search method is that we eliminate that as an issue and backup our placements with an industry leading 12 to 36-month replacement guarantee.
