The Kensho Approach to Talent
The Kensho Group is driven by a deep belief that employees drive the success and failure of businesses. Unfortunately, the most important capital of a business, human capital, is not consistently chosen well. At the front end, recruiters often do not deliver consistently high quality service to their clients - issues range from the recruiter truly not understanding the industry space they are working in to an inability to grasp the key aspects of what the hiring manager is looking to achieve in filling the position. Kensho provides a more enlightened approach by providing a level of service that hiring managers and HR professionals need in the following ways:
- We are a true extension of the hiring manager (we recruit and interview with the same mindset that you have). With The Kensho Group principals, you are hiring seasoned technology executives that have hired people at all levels and across many different functions. Throughout our careers we have built strong teams that have delivered outstanding results - we know first hand how to identify the characteristics, traits, and experiences that separate average performers from the top talent that drive teams to excellence. Kensho operates in a consultative manner - we work with the same care toward helping you create a superior team just as if it was our own group.
- Kensho brings a proven, effective and systematic process to work for you. The key talent that you need is most likely someone who is currently generating value for another company, possibly your competitor - we make it our business to locate those top people. And then we follow a highly effective process that results in only the few best candidates being brought to the hiring manager for consideration. At this stage, we present candidates' relevant data and strengths in a thoughtful, well-executed manner that provides insight and helps the hiring manager's decision making process. It is not acceptable to "throw candidates against the wall, and see which ones stick".
- We represent you with care. At Kensho we take very seriously our role in being your representative to prospective candidates. Our clients' image and reputation are very important to us. We believe that all candidates that interact with us in regard to your company should end up with a positive impression no matter what the outcome of the engagement. Members of The Kensho Group conduct all their relationships with the company values of Integrity, Commitment, Hard Work, Honesty, Enthusiasm, Ingenuity, Excellence, Agility, and Results-Orientation.
- We believe that the Right Match is the key to success. Therefore, The Kensho Group delivers the highest quality consultation to both clients and candidates. We ensure we understand what our clients need beyond job experience and education - what is the company's culture, what skills will be the best addition to the existing working group, what "soft skills" are needed? And then we conduct in-depth candidate interviews with real interest and concern for their objectives and future (a key step beyond most recruiters). We truly believe the only successful outcome is to find the Right Match between the client's needs and the candidate's goals.
- The Kensho Group takes a long term view. Finding the right people to make you more successful is one of the most important things you will ever do for your company. When we partner with clients on this critical activity, we want to build a relationship that is valuable to you long beyond a specific placement. Similarly, we provide further coaching and guidance to candidates if they are ultimately not chosen for your position. Maintaining those strong relationships with your industry's top talent ultimately benefits you the next time you have a position to fill.
In general, Kensho practices the philosophy that only by giving generously can one expect to truly gain and form strong mutual inter-dependent win-win professional relationships. A truly more "Enlightened" approach to providing Human Capital Solutions.
