Why Use Executive Recruiters
As an HR Director or Manager of a growing medical company, you may find yourself asking the question, “When do we need to utilize the services of a executive recruiter or executive search firm?” In today’s economy we are all forced to tighten down on spending and consider each dollar that we spend. The decision to utilize a executive recruiter for a particular search should include these key considerations:
First, do you have an approved requisition within your company to hire this position? Sounds crazy, but often companies reach out to recruitment firms to fill a position that has not solidly been approved by appropriate management.
Secondly, how vital is the position to your organization? Does this position need to be filled within a specific time frame? If the answer is yes, then using a recruiting firm to assist you in filling the position quickly would be beneficial to your bottom line.
Thirdly, have you exhausted your own resources? This statement also may sound absurd, but the last thing a recruiter working on a commission only basis wants to hear is that you filled the position internally.
Many medical device, pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies today post their open positions on internet job boards to attract talent. While this may appear to be a cost saving option, internet job boards may not always be the most effective way to fill a position. Posting a position is easily accomplished, however, managing the responses from the posted opening can be difficult. If your company does business with the Federal Government, you may be regulated by the OFCCP. If this is the case, you must track any responses to jobs posted on these boards.
Another option for your company may be to hire an internal recruiter to assist in recruiting and retaining top talent within your organization. These recruiters are typically a part of the human resource department within the organization. If your company is growing, adding an internal recruiter may be beneficial. However, depending on the amount of company turn-over or growth you experience, you may need several internal recruiters to do the job right!
