Why Use a Boutique Search Firm in Times of Economic Uncertainty?

The COVID-19 crisis has shaken the executive recruitment industry all over the world. This significant impact has forced organizations and their leaders to make quick changes and scale back budgets and plans. Others, however, are pivoting and thriving as they see this as an opportunity to hire top talent.

Since 1998, The Christopher Group (TCG) has become the preferred partner when companies seek to hire top talent.  Our Agile HR Solution-centered firm of former HR professionals has become known for our critically acclaimed process, flexible solutions, industry knowledge, and deep relationships.

During these times, boutique search firms like TCG have a unique view of the talent market. We can see in real-time who is hiring, laying off, and furloughing due to our vast networks and relationships. More importantly, we can see where unique talent opportunities exist and can move quickly to help clients engage with that talent.  We also have access to talent that is passively looking and not directly impacted by a COVID-19 environment.  Companies will severely limit their search by only targeting active candidates or not being able to access the highest performing talent.  Working with the right search firm in times of economic uncertainty is important because of the long-standing relationships, and immediate access to the top talent they can bring to bear. TCG’s expertise across all industries, nationwide makes the search and hiring process as painless as possible for both sides.

If you are not ready to hire a full-time executive, our rapid deployment of HR contractors is designed to support unplanned vacancies, maternity/paternity leaves, business surges, interim CHRO/HR executive needs, and/or other unforeseen HR-related needs. Our interim HR leaders provide fully vetted, highly qualified, and dependable resources with high-touch ongoing account support and management for all areas of HR functions.

Not sure where to start? Our Consulting Services Division can immerse themselves into your business model, goals and objectives, current systems, tools, and processes.  They will then provide strategic, high impact HR solutions to real business problems enabling, liberating, and empowering your business to achieve its goals and objectives within all HR functional areas like Diversity and Inclusion, Talent Management, Organization Development/Effectiveness, Compensation, Benefits, HRIS, Talent Acquisition, and Employee/Union Relations.
