Discovery: Partnering for Success
An understanding of all critical factors relevant to the position is acquired
by conducting detailed discussions with key management, search team members
and other identified sources. These discussions provide an opportunity to
appreciate the business strategy and the culture of the organization and also
the expectations in terms of competencies, attributes and performance of the
successful candidate. At the conclusion of this phase, a Position and Person
Profile is developed and approved by the selection team. This is the key document
used as the primary communication venue to approach, solicit and attract potential
Candidate Generation: Confidence in People
The objective is to generate a high quality candidate pool. Potential candidates
for the position are identified during this phase of the assignment. There
are four steps to this process.
There is a discussion with the client to benchmark organizations where
the key leadership individuals have demonstrated comparable skills and competencies.
In discussion with the client and in consideration of the market we jointly
determine the marketing or advertising strategy that would be most successful.
A concentrated initiative is centered on networking or direct contact.
This is where having a search professional who is well known in the
industry or has direct credibility in the role makes a significant difference.
A search is conducted which includes current candidates in the AMKOR databases,
approximately three thousand five hundred, qualified and referenced individuals.
We also use a number of high profile and economical mediums such as MBA
alumni, professional organization websites, and other professional networks
and databases to ensure all reasonable and related sources are investigated.
Assessment: Focusing on Success
Motivated and competent candidates are personally interviewed and assessed
for suitability, screened to provide an assessment of personal attributes,
qualities, professional qualifications, competencies, previous experience
and potential fit.
Recommendations: Providing Insight
A confidential report is provided on each short listed candidate. These reports
are confidential to the selection committee.
Interviewing and Facilitation: Ensuring Due Diligence
The Search Team may desire assistance in organizing the interview and facilitating
the assessment of candidates. This service will be provided in accordance
to the preference of the hiring leader. Development of behavioural based questions,
tours of the organization’s facilities, opportunities for second and
third level interviews at the request of the Search Team will all be coordinated
by the search consultant if required.
Successful Offer and Acceptance: Committed to Building Relationships
Once a candidate has been selected, the search professional can assist with
both drafting the letter of offer and facilitating the offer discussion. Details
of compensation, start date, key accountabilities and reporting relationship
are essential issues to be agreed to prior to sign off.
At AMKOR we recognize the importance of initiating timely interaction with
all candidates, both successful and not, to express gratitude for their time
and interest during the search experience. Our diligence in providing all
candidates with specific feedback is we what we believe at AMKOR sets us apart
from other executive search companies.
Confidence in the Successful Candidate and Guarantee
Although it is impossible to guarantee performance, we will stand behind
the quality of the candidates presented and specifically the individual selected.
If the successful candidate should leave, for any reason, within the first
12-month period, a second search at no additional professional fee will be
undertaken providing the profile has not been changed.
