Our Enduring Core Idealogies
These codes of operation represent our firm's ethical priorities and the method by which we conduct the business of Executive Search.
- Our firm's greatest assets and the foundation of our business are built upon the development and enrichment of relationships.
- Integrity must precede every decision we make.
- We shall accept assignments only when our firm is the most qualified solution.
- We must always respond with immediacy to the needs of our Clients.
- We can never lose sight of the impact our profession has on the lives of the individuals, the families, and the companies we faithfully represent.
Principles of Practice
The extent of our firm's growth and development rests solely on two beliefs:
- The quality of the relationship and trust between our Clients and our Partners must be impeccably regarded and maintained.
- The level to which we respond to the needs of each Client we serve must exceed all accepted industry standards.
Establishing a Vehicle for Accountability
Our commitment to communication is integral to the ideals of our process. This extends far beyond routine updates at various intervals of the search. We report our progress with frequency and present critical market perspectives and competitive insights during each search. Our Clients are entitled to know what factors are aiding or restricting their ability to attract top talent.
We Understand the Value of Time
Time management is an essential component of the success of our services. We understand how quickly our Clients desire the final result. Equally important, The Ransom Group will identify potential inhibitors that may affect a Candidate's interest or impede the Client's ability to secure a Candidate for the position. The achievement of this goal is directly related to the efficiency of our process. Our formula is simple and direct. It begins with the high level of dedication and resources that we focus at each search. Additionally, we closely monitor the amount of work we accept. It is rare for a Partner of our firm to begin more than one search simultaneously. We believe that managing multiple assignments can greatly reduce the quality of Candidates and unnecessarily prolong the completion of the search. We adhere to these basic principles that others may simply overlook. By doing so, we ensure that our search consultants devote efficient and dedicated time, with all the necessary resources, to the successful completion of each project.
Bringing Focus to the Search
No process involving humans can provide a guarantee of results. The executive search process is no exception to this reality. However, much can be done to identify and minimize, if not eliminate, these human variables. At each stage of the process, we evaluate 'candidate deliverability' and potential obstacles to the acceptance of an offer of employment. This evaluation demands a trusting relationship with each Candidate and an understanding of his or her sincere motivations behind pursuing competitive career opportunities. This analysis seeks to uncover factors such as Candidate relocation, compensation, counter offer, or competitive opportunities that may impact the search. These 'moments of truth' can greatly impact the outcome of any search. Therefore, these issues are discussed often and early to limit the potential of an element unrelated to the position itself causing the search process to fail.
We work with unyielding commitment to enrich our clients' human capital through identification & acquisition of the world's greatest leaders.
