Process

Sherwood Search personalizes every search and strives to serve each client by thoroughly understanding and vetting the reasons "Why" behind every search project. Aligning that understanding with prospective candidates' desires and motivations is the foundation for a successful recruiting effort. Each search process is tuned to the specific needs of the position to be filled and is continually adjusted to achieve optimum results for all stakeholders.

Shared thinking

Our understanding of your situation is directly related to the quality and quantity of sharing we do. We work closely with you to craft the dynamic characteristics that reveal and define the ideal performance and candidate for the role. The story we share allows us to influence technical leaders raising their level of interest to engage in the process. We won't stop sharing your story until the project is completed.

Setting expectations

Whenever you are looking to acquire another company's key contributors or high value people, you are going to experience retention forces that will impede or eliminate your ability to hire that particular person. We will manage everyone's expectations creating a low anxiety process benefitting all stakeholders in the process. We continually ask what you're thinking to make sure we are on the same page with you.

Need to know

When you engage us, we will be available 24x7 to address any questions or deal with any situations that may arise in the process. We will be transparent, honest and direct in our communication. When we engage candidates on your behalf there is an interest continuum buttressed by timely and accurate communication that will require your cooperation. There will be no better ambassador for your company.

Mutual agreement

Acquisition of your number one choice is the goal of all our effort. Our methodology ensures that all stakeholders have a clear understanding of the value that each party represents. Respectful negotiations are a great way to get a relationship started on the right track. We insure that you never make an offer that will be turned down again.
