CEO search partners Denver, CO? Continue Recruiting Even if You Aren’t Hiring! For some, the inherent cost of extending an offer and onboarding a new employee is not feasible at this time. As noted before, no industry or company is immune to the economic reaction to COVID-19, but some have been hit harder than others. However you communicate with your candidates, remember that transparency and honesty are key. Avoid “stringing people along,” if you know you cannot extend an offer now, be honest about it. Nothing travels faster than bad news, and a disgruntled candidate is far more likely to spread the word.
When hiring, give an edge to qualified candidates who have made it through multiple layoff rounds. They’re used to picking up the pieces after a massive layoff and are a better bet to know how to keep the operation moving smoothly. Be clear with them on company plans, and they may start imagining how to fix situations and turn things around. Identify candidates that have a track record of succeeding at things they’ve never done before. While most people can continually succeed in an upward linear fashion by building on prior experience, we are not in a linear period at the moment. The person who can repeatedly succeed in unknown situations is what some companies will need for fresh ideas and reinvention.
Each of the candidates we present to our Clients have the ability to be impactful, strong builders of high performing teams, and true business partners to CEO’s and their Board of Directors. Over 80% of the CEO’s we’ve placed and have gone through our process have hired us to build out their teams in the areas of Accounting, E-Commerce, Engineering, Finance, Human Resources, Information Technology, Marketing, Operations, Product Development, and Sales.
