Our Process


Retained Search recruiting talent

We always begin a new search with a discovery process by which we determine IF we are the best firm to conduct the search. We are careful always to put ourselves in a position to succeed, therefore we must ensure that our potential client's expectations are in line with their value proposition. Too often companies start a search with the wrong target candidate in mind, only to end up having to repeat the search again. We are committed to each client's success and thus we must ensure that their ability to capture the heart and mind of the person they desire is in alignment with who they CAN hire. Once we are engaged by a client, we physically meet with the key stakeholders in the company and assess the team dynamics, and company culture. While meeting with leadership we determine whether this person is expected to fit into the current culture or blaze a trail with a new culture.

All of this must happen before a single call to a potential candidate is made. Once we have a firm grasp on the ideal profile and the clear deliverables for the role, we can begin to plan where it is most likely to find the target talent. Our philosophy of talent is that the best people are very rarely actively seeking employment. Furthermore, believe that anyone who IS actively seeking a new job is doing so because of a compelling driving force. We strive to understand the individual's motivations to ensure they are thinking long term rather than short term. This driving force too often causes people to make poor decisions about their future and for the wrong reasons. These candidates pose a distinct risk to our clients, and we go to great lengths to vet them, ensuring their motivations to be appropriate for a long-term career move.

The search process has many nuances and an algorithm cannot be contained on a webpage. For this reason, we've greatly simplified the steps we go through to ensure a tremendous outcome. Just like "Outcomes Based Medicine," we believe that our short & long-term results are critical to the ongoing relationships we have. We treasure those relationships such that it informs every decision we make during this process.

  Discovery/Planning

 

 

The first step we take is to meet with the key stakeholders to develop the profile of the ideal candidate. We gather information to determine the critical attributes and experiences of the candidate as well as defining all key deliverables. Once complete, our consultants have a blueprint on which to execute their search for talent. 

 

Research/Recruitment 

Having a detailed analysis of w the ideal candidate, we carefully identify all the potential companies where the target talent may be found. Then through our extensive orthopedic industry network, we contact all potential leads, referrals, and candidates to evaluate an inclusive list of people who fit the profile from an experience point of view. The hardest to find and recruit are often the best people, so we take the time to cast the vision in such a way that the right person is attracted to the opportunity.

Validation/Slate Selection

This is where the real discernment comes into play. As we have built a long list of potential candidates we then distill the down to the very best people who fit the broader criteria of Competency, Character & Cultural fit. This is the time we separate the wheat from the chaff. After carefully evaluating and vetting the individuals, we select the final slate of candidates to be presented to the client.

Interview Staging/Final Selection

Once a final slate has been presented, we carefully schedule and stage the interviews to ensure that your preferred candidate is within reach and execute to that end. We assist in all aspects of candidate compensation, offer, acceptance, resignation and smooth transition into our client's company.

Client Testimonies

The De Angelis Group not only quickly and comprehensively captured the skills set and capabilities we were looking for in a CEO, but were extremely thorough in matching cultural and personality characteristics of the candidate(s). Hiring at the C-Level is always a delicate blend of credentials, work experience, depth of character and chemistry with our leadership team. Their process ensured we were right on target, within budget and on our timeline. I am happy to recommend The De Angelis Group and we have already utilized them again for additional executive searches.
