PfB Knowledge and Expertise
When the candidate profile calls for an external hiring, we apply specific selection techniques and take advantage of our broad network of scientific experts. We use “pull” activities, meaning advertising our jobs in all means available in order to attract active candidates or use our own candidate database. However, we mainly focus on “push” activities, meaning actively and directly addressing the market, in a methodical and thorough way, in order to locate and attract the most talented candidates out there. After assessing them, we choose the most suitable, those who are the “best fit” and present them to our clients.
Having worked in numerous projects, we possess both the experience and the critical recruiting skills. We know what to say and what to do when approaching a candidate who is already employed. This ability provides us with a great competitive advantage. This is why the gap between those who passively source and those who actively recruit remains wide.
Our added value is not limited to successful hirings. For newly appointed executives, the first few weeks and months in the role are critical. They must quickly understand corporate culture, set the right priorities, and establish credibility with colleagues and stakeholders. BONDING START includes a series of sophisticated questionnaires, answered by both the placed executive and the line manager. By analyzing the answers, we help them better understand each other, boost their communication and maximize the expected results. In this way, line managers learn how to enhance communication with new members, how to motivate them, how to help them in overcoming obstacles, thus reducing the induction period and moving forward to productivity. The placed executive on the other hand, acclimatizes and understands the aspects of own new role faster than before.
Working with a large number of companies in different sectors, we have a deep expertise in the following roles:
Director, Scientific Research
Food Technology Specialist
