Our Signature Methodology-
The Road Map to Top Talent Method
When your team is not consistently rising to the challenge and busting goals, it will always come back to bite you.
If you find you are ever reporting less than acceptable numbers to investors, it’s time to think about a long term strategy. If you can’t get your team to surpass goals and consistently meet deadlines even during a pandemic, you know you are in trouble.
Exceptional leaders who can identify, hire, and retain top talent are the ones who succeed in their careers. And even if you are already there, the bigger the leader, the harder they fall if your team cannot consistently meet deliverables set by investors, partners and owners.
This leaves YOU vulnerable to being replaced.
No matter how good you think you are, if you want to stay competitive, you need a defining factor. You need to prove you can hire the best and keep top performers in every seat to rise above the competition. For your company and for your career.
‘The Road Map to Top Talent Method’
Recruit, Hire, Onboard And Retain Your Dream Team
Take a look at what we offer…
In true collaboration to elevate your career and help your company GROW, we learn what your company needs the most in your next top talent hire by interviewing you and/or your own top performers to create a baseline or ScoreCard to evaluate potential candidates for the role.
In full transparency, we conduct a Market Map and Salary Evaluations then share the results with you to enlist a practical pipeline of talent for your future growth plans. We begin with our own network of top talent, then attract hard to find talent using our Employer Value Proposition Optimized Positioning campaign.
EVP Optimized Positioning
We focus on all relevant social media outlets where your MVP resides and share your optimized EVP mirroring your brand image in the market. Complete transparency in partnership delivers the best results. We share your EVP with our proactively sourced network of top CPG talent, the existing talent of your competitors.
Top Talent Validation
We screen engaged candidates using your company criteria and a proven metric based process which separates the top 10% of talent from your entire candidate pool.
This process is based on the metrics set to capture talent similar to your dream employee.
Upon selecting your top candidates, we ensure your potential new hire is thoroughly engaged and thrilled to accept a written offer. We use a unique process in reference checking to validate your potential hire’s complete work history before the offer stage delivering peace of mind and confidence in your hiring decisions.
We guarantee your new hire for up to 12 months and stay in touch with you and your new talent to ensure the ongoing fit. We continue the conversation through ‘touch base’ meetings at 30 days, then each quarter for the first year to ensure you and your new talent is confident in the performance expectations set at the time of hire.
Drive Your Career Further, Faster.
It’s not your fault. No one would have thought it would come to this.
Leading, much less hiring during a global pandemic has got to be the #1 thing we weren’t prepared for in business.
Fortunately, Recruitment Marketing is fairly new, and just like the days of door to door sales, Digital Marketing has dominated traditional recruitment and made it nearly obsolete.
There is no going back to the old way and expecting it to work even in good times.
If you’re worried about…
Getting your product out on time even during CRUNCH MODE
A DELAY in your launch date (because of any number of things piling up)
OR have that one employee who seems to STIR the POT and gets the team riled up and off-track…
You have HUGE goals ahead of you. Any empty/ ill-fitting seat on your team is a wrong turn to meet those goals.
Dealing with outside recruiters can cause even MORE stress when they send you the same resume you already have in your database, GHOST candidates while representing YOUR company and worse…
They offer the same ‘perfect fit’ candidate to your competitors…They seem to work for the candidate’s best interests, but you are the one paying the bill…
Or- the same resumes you’ve seen over and over again.
Having a solid candidate pipeline in place for key roles is vital to your success as a leader. Waiting until someone hands in their resignation to begin your search puts YOU in the desperate seat. Why would you do this to yourself, and to your career?
Hire the Top 10% of Talent to Drive Your Career Further and Farther
We‘re a Recruitment Consultancy Firm specializing in the Digital Games industry.
We help companies like yours win the War for Talent, even over larger companies.
With just over a decade in Recruitment, I’ve interviewed thousands of candidates, worked side by side with hiring staff and understand what a company needs to not only survive, but to THRIVE.
We identify TOP talent through a unique process I created using the same techniques as large firm’s top headhunters and recruiters in the industry without the same blacklist of clients.
We don’t post your opportunity on job boards to the few only looking for a J.O.B. NOW.
We MARKET to Top Performers and SELL your Employer Brand and Opportunity
Why CLM Careers?
Opting for an engaged search gives you true peace of mind as engaged searches give us the opportunity to map out the market and do a truly “deep dive”, focusing on the 80% of the people who are not looking for a job (and truthfully probably never really ARE looking for another job) as they are comfortable working, and SUCCEEDING, for your competitor.
This is the service you THINK you are paying for. Yet most ‘staffing agencies’ will just copy and paste your job to a job board and see what the tide rolls in…
An engaged search tells US you are committed and serious about filling the position. Aren’t just kicking tires, aren’t comparing outside people (applicants) to inside people (employees) and WE are committing to YOU as well.
Failure to deliver is NOT an option on an engaged search. Our reputation is on the line and we WANT to build a relationship with you for future searches LONG TERM. We are truly invested in making sure we are successful.
What Makes Us Different?
Our focus is on “Direct Recruiting” passive candidates for your search. Our engaged and retained searches are supported by social media “direct marketing”. We target exceptional competitor employees, find their contact info and educate them on your unique employer proposition to attract them to your opportunity.
Exceptional talent is RARELY found on job boards. We find the people that have their heads down doing a great job for the competition. Most contingent searches say they direct recruit but do very little of it because of the lack of commitment.
On engaged searches, you get first right of refusal to any candidates we source for your search, and we won’t send them to any other searches until you decide you don’t want them.
ENGAGED searches are about QUALITY. We find and send the best.
Get What You Pay For with CLM Careers
CONTINGENT searches are about speed, because there’s always the fear that another recruiter or the company will be looking for candidates so the recruiter HAS to send in ANYONE who is remotely feasible for the position so they have at least a SHOT at the fee.
Even though it’s a “deeper dive”, the retained and engaged searches tend to end more quickly as we are ACTIVELY targeting the perfect fit. The process is laser-focused, and we are compelled to spend time on your search, because we know we are both committed to a great hire.
Engaged and retained searches attract a higher quality of candidate because we share all of the company information with the candidate. Contingent searches hold back and the recruiter never shares the client name with the candidate. If they do, they risk the chance that the candidate will apply directly to the company, or call friends at the company and “bypass” the recruiter resulting in no fee and a recruiters wasted time. So contingent recruiters are purposefully vague and won’t share details about the company. Because of that, there is a lack of trust between the candidate and recruiter; and many of the direct-recruits feel like it’s a waste of time to discuss a position without all of the details.
In a contingent search, candidates are often approached by multiple recruiters which “cheapens” the view of the company to top-level talent. Not a great way to make a good first impression on rock star talent.
Our engaged/ retained search guarantee is for 1 full year versus 60 days for most contingent searches.
We simply provide a better service. And with the fees of staffing agency contingent searches industry standard being 15-30% of a full year salary, you’ll end up paying just as much either way. So why not make the smart move and call today.
