When starting up or expanding your business what matters the most, besides capital, is your team. Your brilliant, well researched and unique business plan will not succeed without a decent team. More often than not, people depend upon professional executive search companies to help them find the right candidates for their business. Most of the budding entrepreneurs also depend upon them to find CLOs and other high ranking Supply Chain professionals for their team. Sometimes, this has to be arranged even before the proposal request for funding is sent to the VCs. Roger J. Zetter, CEO of the leading headhunting firm Optimum Supply Chain Recruiters, tells us what you need to ask from your headhunters.
The most essential thing is to ensure that your executive search company follows the ethics of the industry, says Zetter. A professional and genuine executive search company depends upon contacts to survive and succeed in a long run. They can act as an extension of your Human Resource Department and help you find the right person for your company and project.
According to Zetter, the only way to anticipate the quality and professionalism of a headhunting company is its reputation and history. This is a business that depends entirely upon mutual contacts and trusts, Zetter explains. These can be acquired only over an extended period of time. He points also out that a professional headhunter would never recruit any staff from their clients.
He makes a further point: Not only have venture capitalists, but also the angel investors evaluated the capabilities of your team before giving
you any money. Even if theyre convinced by your idea and business plan, they are very less likely to fund you if they think your team is incapable of carrying out the operations in their desired way.
Ensuring that youve hired a good headhunter is the first stepping stone towards success. It exponentially increases your chances of getting funded, as well as getting success in the business at a later stage.
