6-Step Success Process

Step 1: Value Exploration

“How does your company stand out above the competition?” is our first question in our proven process. Our team conducts an in-depth analysis of position specifications, meticulously gathering requirements with a keen focus on value and what you bring to the table that your industry peers don’t. As former accountants, we’ve been in the candidate’s shoes, so we understand what messages resonate and how to skillfully showcase your company's attributes and benefits to effectively entice and retain exceptional candidates.

Step 2: Talent Acquisition Research

Our strategic planning approach to sourcing target candidates is centered around finding quality candidates that meet your identified criteria. Our research not only starts with your company, but we also dig into our library of extensive industry resources, virtual communities, influential trade and business magazines and proven cold calling techniques, ensuring we leave no stone unturned.

Step 3: Network Engagement

Our wide-ranging connections in the accounting and finance verticals enable us to attract the best talent. As we begin the recruiting process, identifying quality candidates for your pipeline, we’re sourcing our personal and industry rolodexes in addition to identifying top candidates from competitor companies and comparable industries on a local and national scale.  

Step 4: Thorough Assessment

This step is the linchpin of our process. We understand the financial ramifications a bad hire can have, so we remain committed to finding the right fit as opposed to simply filling up a candidate roster. We go beyond the resume with a combination of behavioral and targeted interviewing techniques, to ensure the talent pool we present possesses not only the necessary technical skill sets, but they also align with your culture. While speed is of the essence in the hiring process, we’re mindful of providing a personalized interview strategy that reflects a client’s needs and company culture. We’re focused on a momentum-driven interview strategy. Read more on our take here.

Step 5: Trusted Counsel & Guidance

Every candidate’s interaction with your company – no matter how big or small – leaves a lasting impression. We serve as an extension of your hiring team, improving the overall candidate experience from start to finish. We guide you through the entire recruitment process, from market intelligence, current trends and compensation analysis to setting up interviews, negotiating salaries and providing detailed feedback in advance of every interaction. Our experienced recruiters are with you every step of the way – you will have the inside scoop to find the right person, the first time.

Step 6: Compensation 

Compensation negotiations can be tricky, and that's where we come in. Our extensive experience helping close deals coupled with our market knowledge of competing offers is a value-add for employers. We help you navigate every aspect of an employment offer empowering you to make the best offer first, if the candidate is a match. Having the right fit early on is inherent in your business’ success, especially when it comes to candidate retention. That’s our promise to you – setting your firm up for success as the benchmark for talent.
