How We Work
We're Selective. To provide you with the highest level of service, we only work with a few select companies at a time. This allows us to become thoroughly familiar with your company, culture and business needs.
We Care. We want our company to be an extension of yours, as a candidate's first impression of your company often comes from us. Because we genuinely care that we match the right candidates with the right companies, we take the necessary time to get to know your specific needs. We only present a candidate to you after we have carefully screened him or her and determined that there is a good fit.
We're Thorough. With every search that The Kensho Group performs, the client benefits from:
- Quality representation by a recruiter who has extensive knowledge of your industry
- In-depth interviews of candidates before they are presented to you
- Complete reference checks
- Interview preparation and debriefing assistance
- Offer and acceptance negotiation assistance
- Candidate coaching against accepting a counteroffer
- A replacement guarantee
- Follow-up to ensure satisfaction
- Willingness to customize the search for your particular needs
- Access to any or all of the Additional Services offered by The Kensho Group and our partners
