Few things are more important to the success of your business than getting key hires right. Engaged search provides the expertise and high-end service level of retained search, with a strong pay-for-performance aspect. Our fee structure includes a flat engagement fee to start the search, but the vast majority of our fee isn’t earned until your new hire starts. We understand that working with an executive recruiter is an investment and we’ve designed our 4-stage Recruiting Blueprint search process to ensure you get a strong return on your investment. Of course, we also offer a guarantee. Yet, we prefer to get it right the first time, which is why our last replacement was over a decade ago.
You can learn more about each of the 4 stages of The Recruiting Blueprint below, but the best way to learn if we’re worth the investment is to book a no-obligation Discovery Session to learn if Building Gurus is the right recruiting partner for you.
Our search process starts with a kick-off call to help us understand your business and culture. Then we dig into the opportunity. We can even use a patented job benchmarking process to set you up for success.
We combine your ideal hire profile and our expert-level knowledge of recruiting for top sales reps, managers and leaders in building products to design your customized recruiting strategy that delivers best-in-class sales, leaders, and executives.
With your Ideal Hire Profile at the heart of our search, we’ll identify and review hundreds of people, conduct in-depth interviews and ultimately present the top 1% of the market so you can choose with confidence.
This is when the focus shifts from recruiting to retaining. We rarely get it wrong (in fact, it’s been over a decade), but if we do you’re covered by our guarantee. When they start, we don't stop. We keep in touch for a full year after they start.
