The Five Disciplines of Hiring
The Domain Expert
We believe hiring is part art and part science. Our Five Disciplines of Hiring are a result of decades of first-hand experience as well as studying the highest-performing teams and organizations. Each specialist is highly trained in, and passionate about, their particular discipline. Since our team is geographically distributed, we are able to tap into the highest quality specialists who are experts at finding, vetting and closing the best candidates. Learn more.
"I am convinced that nothing we do is more important than hiring and developing people. At the end of the day, you bet on people not on strategies." - Lawrence Bossidy
How We Do It
First, we match you with a dedicated recruiting team, led by a seasoned Strategist. They get to know your culture, the outcomes you want for each hire, then design a real-world hiring strategy, and start providing results fast. In four simple steps we can ramp up and begin finding the best people for your open roles.
01. Deep dive
This step involves understanding your company’s mission, goals, culture and what your ideal candidate looks like for each position. Deep dives are lead by The Strategist and attended by your team so we can accurately represent your company throughout the hiring process.
Each role has a unique strategy depending on the current employment climate, demand for the role, experience required, and other factors. The Strategist and The Domain Expert meet to figure out the best combination of inbound and outbound recruiting, then adjust as we test it against the real world.
We start out by implementing an ATS (applicant tracking system) or optimizing what you currently use. Next, we build out the framework that leads to finding the best person for the role. Including creating compelling job descriptions, developing targeted and creating a scorecard for each role.
Once a strategy is in place, our specialists get to work sourcing and filtering. This includes managing candidates through each step of the process, creating dossiers when passing on quality candidates to the in-house team for further interviews and running back-channel reference checks when an offer is being considered.
