Executive Search/Retained Search

The executive search division of Ober Consulting is designed for the procurement of senior-level executive talent typically from the Vice President level to the C-Suite. We approach all of our retained searches on a project basis with established checkpoints and fully benchmarked goals. All retained search projects are designed in close collaboration with our clients to ensure that all components of the business challenge have been clearly identified. “If we haven’t identified the challenge, we cannot find the solution”.

The Process

  • Step 1: Needs analysis. Upon client engagement, Ober Consulting will conduct an in-depth needs analysis through close consultation with all key stakeholders involved with the search assignment. The goal of the initial needs analysis is to clearly identify the business challenges so that we can map out a matrix of experience and skills that will allow us to accurately identify the candidates that best fit our client’s needs.
  • Step 2: Establishing checkpoints and benchmarks. Through close consultation with our client, we will develop a set of mutually agreed upon checkpoints and benchmarks that will allow us to measure our progress throughout the search. These checkpoints and benchmarks are designed to give structure to the search, establish accountability, allow key stakeholders to stay informed of the searches progress, and allow us to identify any areas that need adjustment or fine tuning moving forward.
  • Step 3: Conduct the search. As candidates are identified and presented to our clients, there will be an ongoing transfer of information regarding all aspects of the search to include: Detailed candidate assessments, candidate feedback on all client interactions, challenges in the marketplace (competitive insight), and more.
  • Step 4: Search completed. Upon the completion of the search assignment, Ober Consulting will provide a detailed process review (a view from the outside looking in) that has had great value in the past to our clients. Essentially, this outside in look at your companies hiring process allows you to fine tune that process to make it the best it can possibly be. We all need a competitive edge in securing the “best and the brightest” talent available to stay competitive.
