Information for Employers
Holden Associates conducts retained
as well as contingency executive search in the Point of Purchase
arena to include display companies, brands
and retailers. There is a natural synergy among those three
entities and we strive to capture the networking advantages that
Clients engage us because they are competing for
the best people in their field. In order to provide you with the
highest caliber of candidates in the most cost effective manner,
we work closely with your decision makers to capitalize on direct
feedback and enable us to target our efforts most accurately.
When we begin an assignment, we take the time
to learn about your company. We conduct briefings with you and relevant
members of your staff to solicit input and determine what the expectations
are for the position. The information gained from this research
provides us with an understanding of your needs and a clear definition
of the candidate most likely to thrive in your corporate environment.
We then contact and interview prospects to assess
their qualifications and interest in the position. Armed with the
information gleaned from our briefings with you, we create a portrait
of your company that is designed to capture the interest of prospective
candidates. That done, we introduce you to those candidates whom
we believe can best meet the challenge.
Once interviewing has begun, we debrief you and
each candidate to determine interest level, concerns, reservations
and enthusiasm. We act as a sounding board to evaluate responses
and help move the process toward a successful completion. Our "distance
from the situation" permits us to objectively interpret the
feedback, eliminate misunderstandings and bring the process to fruition.
Inc. strives to build long term relationships with clients
and gain a thorough understanding of their needs and culture. Let
us help you grow.
