Why Our Retained Search Works

Prior to client review, we utilize proprietary tools to assess the fit and qualifications of all potential candidates against the customized opportunity profile, saving our clients time and money.

Unlike other firms, our entire process is conducted by senior partners with years of corporate experience across a variety of industries. In addition, each placement includes assimilation and transition support along with a 12 month guarantee. As our partner, your success is our success.

Don’t Stop At “Hired”! Transition Services Are Critical For Candidate Success

Are your executive hires performing how you hoped they would?

In this white paper, we analyze the effectiveness of the typical "on-boarding" program. Many companies still operate through the "Sink or Swim" mentality, or use a "Basic Orientation" program to familiarize the executive with their company. 

However, time and time again, these approaches prove to be less than effective at assimilating an executive into their new role. Download our white paper to discover why executive transition services are critical for candidate success.

Executive Assessment

Growing today’s employees into tomorrow’s leaders.

In addition to retained search and executive outplacement, Kinsley Sarn also provides executive assessment services with validated, fact-based analysis that is vital for talent selection and succession planning, as well as placement or promotion decisions. When appropriate, our assessments can be used to supplement in-house recruitment processes. 

Our team firmly believes in the power of growing today’s employees into tomorrow’s leaders. We are well-versed in identifying employees who show high performance levels in addition to high growth potential. Mentoring, special projects, practice, continued education, reflection, and opportunities for growth all contribute to professional development, and are all part of our executive assessment process. As experienced senior executives ourselves, we have been accountable for making thousands of successful selection, executive placement, and promotional decisions.

The Benefits of Executive Assessment

We will provide data-based answers to key questions including:

Is this person an effective leader? Do they have strategic orientation? Can they deliver the desired results? The answers to these questions and ones like them will help to minimize the risk of costly recruitment, selection, placement, and promotion errors. 

Additionally, a detailed and analytical succession planning process provides a more robust assessment of a candidates’ readiness for promotion, and establishes a clear path for development, thus increasing the retention of top talent.
