Traditional Research Methods
Several years ago, traditional research methods were key components in building an extensive database. Consultants and recruiters would saturate phone directories, do cold calls and heavily rely on referrals. Some would even sponsor events or create organizations as a strategy to secure clients and candidates.
Nowadays, modern day methods have made recruiters life easier through numerous online-based portals and applications.
There are several HR management consulting and executive search firms in the Philippines who would claim that their competitive advantage from other executive search companies is the use of technology-based platforms. They position this as a unique selling point to speed up their recruitment process.
The potential for executive search consultants to add value in the digital era is significantly higher now than it has been in the past. Technology has made the dynamic executive search industry more exciting, interesting, and challenging.
Linkedin, Artificial Intelligence, and Big Data are just tools that help recruiters’ job become faster and more efficient.
Digital Era is not a Threat
While there is no doubt of the positive impact of the digital era has on the executive search industry, the fact remains that it is the interpersonal relationships that search consultants build with their clients and candidates that lead to successful partnerships. Consultants place the “HUMAN” aspect in the process while leveraging on accessibility and reliability of technology-driven tools.
RGF Executive Search Philippines Inc. a top executive search firm in the Philippines, has been in the industry for close to 2 decades and continues to provide exceptional customer service by combining traditional and innovative best practices. This is their competitive advantage among other executive search firms in the Philippines.
As a leader in executive search, RGF values its clients and candidates by focusing more on relationship building coupled with a rigorous recruitment process while upholding corporate social responsibility, and ensuring highly ethical and professional engagement with partners.
