Business principles

QUALITY-DRIVEN – Providing the highest quality client service is paramount. Though we may be involved in a wide variety and heavy volume of activity, if it came to a choice, rather be the best than the biggest.

VALUE-DRIVEN – Our raison d’ĂȘtre is to enhance the value of our clients’ business operations. We do so by systematically identifying, evaluating, and attracting the most outstanding candidates in a manner that enhances the reputation of our clients and our profession.

REPUTATION-DRIVEN – We listen, understand, document, develop insight, and consult. Only then do we act. Our key assets are our people and our reputation. If we neglect or diminish either, both are extremely difficult to restore.

ACCOUNTABLE – The introducing partner assumes complete responsibility for the quality and results of the engagement from start to finish.

ETHICAL – While we aggressively seek to expand our client relationships, client executives are strictly off limits. As members of the Association of Executive Search Consultants, we are bound by a code of ethics, and are dedicated to complying fully with the letter and spirit of the laws, rules and ethical principles that govern us.

INNOVATIVE – We stress innovation and creativity in everything we do. We have pioneered many of the practices and techniques that have become standard in the industry.

TEAM-ORIENTED – Our approach involves continuous communication and strong internal co-operation. While individual creativity is always encouraged, we have found that team effort produces the best results.

RESPONSIVE – We are big enough to undertake the largest project, yet entrepreneurial enough to maintain the loyalty, intimacy, and esprit de corps that our clients value so highly.

DEDICATED – The dedication of our people to the organization and the intense effort we give our clients are key components of our success. Our commitment to prompt, effective completion of every assignment is proven.

DISCREET – We regularly receive confidential information as part of our client relationships. All information relating to clients and candidates is treated with absolute discretion.

SOCIALLY RESPONSIBLE – We are committed to Corporate Social Responsibility in all matters of business, human resources management, community involvement and investment, health and safety, and human rights.
