Why it’s Crucial to Get the Hiring Process Right the First Time

Filipinos can be proud to be recognized as some of the best talent in the world when it comes to a global workforce. They are the drivers of a strong domestic economy that is growing at unprecedented levels, and they are also the leaders and workforce behind international outsourced teams or teams within global centers of excellence established in the Philippines by multinational corporations. However, these Filipino leaders are now being sought out as candidates for new roles at an unprecedented level. They are being courted by executive headhunters and internal executive recruitment teams alike. If they are great candidates, it’s not likely you’ll find them through job ads or a simple LinkedIn search. You will first need to build trust and rapport while you stand out from the myriad of everyday recruiters who are calling them and getting turned away. More than ever now, the approach needs to be done correctly and must be attractive to the candidate. Because your top-level roles influence your people, your processes and your profits, it’s imperative to thoroughly plan every step of the way.

Partnering with executive search consultants in the Philippines who know the lay of the land, who have the market mapped and who know the top leaders within sort after industries is the best way to attract talent in this candidate driven market. You need an executive headhunter in Manila who can strategically and powerfully source for you to ensure you don’t miss the best person for the job or become overwhelmed by the difficulty or nuances of a specialized search. When you partner with an executive search consultant you can gain a market-based understanding, as well as the ability to bridge the insight gap that so many local and international employers sometimes underestimate when seeking executive talent in the Philippines.
