More than 35 years of experience in healthcare executive recruitment have provided Tyler & Company’s founder insight into how to run a reputable firm and maintain its values.
Steer clear of executive search firms that:
- Don’t conduct national searches and rely solely on their database of candidates.
- Don’t properly vet candidates, if at all.
- Vet candidates, but fail to provide you with negative feedback.
- Negotiate with candidates on your behalf, but not at the lowest compensation.
- Interview multiple candidates on one trip, but send the entire bill to all applicable clients vs. split costs among clients.
- Fail to disclose relationships with candidates they have placed previously or who were clients.
- Don’t follow the Association of Executive Search Consultants’ (AESC) Code of Ethics.
- Don’t abide by AESC’s Professional Practice Guidelines.
- Don’t put forth the same effort in a replacement search as they would in their original assignment.
- Don’t operate under a philosophy of transparency and trust.
