NewConfig will set the foundation.
Once the blueprint is set, the construction team can get to work. An executive hiring company, like the company constructing your house, is responsible for installing the foundation of your business. The C-Suite is the group of employees who drive value, motivate lower-level employees, and set the overall structure of the organization.
When you’re considering your next executive hire, you probably weigh the advantages of hiring on pedigree vs. potential. Both have their advantages—someone with pedigree has the education and the connections but perhaps isn’t well-versed in your specific business needs. Someone with potential is perceptive, knowledgeable in industry trends, and able to help you stay in front of the competitive curve.
One Gallup poll asked business leaders what they found to be valuable in a potential candidate: pedigree or potential? The survey found that 84 percent of business leaders tout industry knowledge as a highly crucial characteristic; nearly 80 percent thought that applied skills trumped basic qualifications such as college degrees or connections.
There is a vast web of candidates that you have to comb through to find your next executive hire, each with varying levels of pedigree and potential. As the foundation of your organization, it’s imperative that you fully understand each candidate’s accolades, and this is something that an executive recruiting agency like NewConfig excels at.
When you choose to make the investment of building a home, you know that you want to get everything right. You want that roof over your head to last a lifetime. The same is true of your executive hiring process—finding the next leader of your organization is time-consuming and costly, and if it’s not the right fit right off the bat, you’re back to square one trying to fill that void.
This is what NewConfig can help you avoid. With our expansive network of candidates, expertise in the hiring process, and ability to be receptive to our client’s needs, we will help you build the “house” of your dreams for your business.
