How does Valdivia support companies and candidates on the route to their common goal? Our new series “Valdivia Internal“serves to provide you with a look behind the scenes of Executive Search at the highest level.
Our Response to Change in Executive Search
New requirement profiles, new and digitally supported procedures, and a stronger focus on sustainability — a paradigm shift is all around and it includes Executive Search. A recent study (¹) published by the International Executive Search Federation IESF only confirms this. In the midst of this new and as yet rather unexplored world, we at Valdivia have decided to favour a systematic process that blends new with established procedures that have been tried, tested and proven over decades.
Depth as a Trademark
Executive Search, the search for top executives and managers, requires profound engagement with the people and circumstances involved. At Valdivia, however, this is only the starting point. In addition to a passion for what we do, we offer specialisation in the real estate sector and excellent market knowledge. We have comprehensive command of all facets of the real estate industry’s professionalism. We speak the language of our clients and the companies and proceed with scientific diligence. In this way, we achieve a comprehensive understanding of the requirements and opportunities on both sides — yielding sustainable results.
Travel Guide in a Highly Specialised Process
A special feature at Valdivia are the four milestones of our search and selection process, which stretch from the initial phase through the selection phase all the way to successful integration. Today’s article is the kick-off to the following issues of “Valdivia internal”, a new series in which we will focus and eloborate on each of the four milestones of our Executive Search process:
- First Contact
- Job Specification
- Bringing Candidate & Client Together
This is how, in a sophisticated, controlled process, we guide all parties involved step by step towards the common goal we share — a fruitful professional cooperation.
This process also includes diligent process documentation, which means that the project status is transparent and visible for our client at any time. For this purpose, the client receives personal access to our client portal, a “real-time CRM system”. In addition, Valdivia creates individual, detailed weekly progress reports. Together with the client, we define frequency and content of this report right at the outset of the search process. This can be adapted at any time in the course of the project, depending on the client’s respective needs and project status.
It is this combination of experience, commitment, expertise, and control that puts us in a position to offer corporate clients and customers a service that meets the highest standards.
