Simply put, executive search is a means of finding the high-caliber leaders in local, regional, or national markets. We act on behalf of our clients who are seeking the most qualified and best individual for a specific position. We provide our clients knowledge of the managerial market as well as a sophisticated network of relevant industry contacts to identify candidates for each assignment.
The search process involves working with our clients to understand their organizations, inner culture, and thinking. Confidentiality is paramount. For those clients seeking the most professional managers, executive search may be the best solution to secure the individuals who possess the right mix of skills, experience, and cultural compatibility for their organizations. Our clients will always benefit from confidentiality, a commitment to recruiting the best candidate, specialist knowledge of the industry and the ability to recruit the best players in a time-scale tailored to meet their objectives.
Clients benefit from developing a relationship with Derba & Derba as a result of our unique combination of rigorous methodology and personal approach. We care about our clients' success and deliver on the promise of superior results. Thankfully, it seems to be working -- 90% of our business is from existing clients or referrals from them.
We approach your business as if it were our own, view ourselves as an extension of your organization and see our success inextricably tied to yours. Because we get to know the culture of your organization so well, we understand what allows your leadership team to succeed and incorporate that into our evaluations and recommendations. At the same time, we adhere to a rigorous methodology in both our search and personnel consulting practices to ensure that our clients are best served in all aspects of our partnership.
We are in the relationship business. Our success in executive search is the result of our ability to develop high quality relationships with both our clients, who retain us to attract top talent, and our candidates, the executives who go on to become the top-performers and future leaders of our client organizations.
The success of our business has been based on our ability to develop long-term, trusting relationships with professionals at all experience and compensation levels.
You'll find that when we first speak with you we are extremely detailed. The better we know you as a professional and as a person, the more likely we are to identify opportunities that help you achieve your career goals. If you are successful and satisfied in a position identified through Derba & Derba, we have succeeded in our goal of strengthening our candidate and client relationships.
Quite often, successful candidates who we attract to our clients in turn retain us to help them build their own teams. We have demonstrated our professionalism and knowledge of their new company. When an opportunity may not be a fit, we always appreciate when someone recommends a former colleague or friend. It can be rewarding to play a role in assisting in another's career progression.
We believe our approach to recruiting is different. Where many firms initially present an opportunity, we prefer to first listen to potential candidates. We want to get to know about their past experiences; when they were most happy; why they were successful. Was it an entrepreneurial organization that valued creativity or did they do best in a more structured, traditional environment? The better we know the candidates, the more likely we will be able to help them effectively manage their careers while also meeting the needs of our clients.
By committing the time to know both our clients and our candidates, Derba and Derba does more than simply assess a candidate's credentials and capabilities. We make sure that our candidate's personal style is consistent with our clients' business culture, and that he or she has a great chance for success. The end results leads to a "win-win" relationship for both our clients and our candidates
Confidential Executive Search is the very foundation of our business.
