What Services should Executive Search Firms provide to Employers in Malaysia?

As an employer looking to place a critical role in your company have you ever wondered what to expect from an Executive Search or Permanent Recruitment firm?

What should your reasonable expectations be when working with a good firm?

When we have an exploratory chat with our potential clients who are looking to engage our help forย permanent recruitment, we ask that question very early on.

The 3 most common answers we consistently get in terms of expectations of an Executive Search firm are:

๐—™๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ฑ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด ๐—š๐—ผ๐—ผ๐—ฑ ๐—–๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฑ๐—ถ๐—ฑ๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ฒ๐˜€

They should only be presenting us with vetted and qualified candidates for review.

๐—™๐—ฎ๐˜€๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ฟ & ๐—”๐—ณ๐—ณ๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐—ฑ๐—ฎ๐—ฏ๐—น๐—ฒ ๐—›๐—ถ๐—ฟ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด

They should understand job requirements and help us fill our vacancies quickly & affordably.

๐—š๐—ฟ๐—ผ๐˜„๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด ๐—ข๐˜‚๐—ฟ ๐—•๐˜‚๐˜€๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ฒ๐˜€๐˜€

They should help grow our business by providing us talent and minimising interruptions.

Based on these consistent findings we’ve built our whole practice here at FirstWorks on fulfilling those 3 key requirements.
