PROCESS - CLIENT'S ROLE
When filling leadership positions, DRG´s approach is to encourage active
involvement from a committee of search leaders and stakeholders. With our
help, your organization and search committee understand the process and
remain focused on core issues and needs.
A search committee is usually made up of volunteers and maybe one or two
staff members. The volunteers on this committee play an active role in
defining your organization´s present and future core issues. As the process
moves along, they assist in developing the position description, reviewing
resumes, interviewing candidates, and checking references. We encourage
committee members to spend the appropriate time with candidates and to
communicate their feedback with us.
When working with an organization to recruit a senior staff member, we
involve the chief executive officer, department directors and perhaps one or
two Board members in a similar process with the same support described
We do expect our clients to be thorough and candid with us and to respect
the confidentiality of candidates. If, along the way, you propose any
changes in your organization´s plans, we ask you to keep your DRG team
apprised. Everyone is in the search together, and therefore, everyone
involved should be pooling candidates and information about candidates
through the same process.
