We’re proud to announce that GRN has been recognized by Forbes for the third year in a row as one of America’s Best Professional Recruiting Firms in both executive and professional searches. While it’s great to be recognized for the hard work that everyone involved with GRN has put in, we’d be remiss if we didn’t consider how we got here in the first place. Here at GRN Mid-Cities, when we got the news that GRN was in the top 25 for the third year in a row, we celebrated and reflected on this important question:
What makes GRN a top recruiting firm?
We Don’t Waste Your Time
In the recruiting world, it helps to have a leg up on your competition if you want to see real, tangible results. My background in the investment industry makes me a powerful player when it comes to recruiting in the finance and investment realms—and it shows in our stats. We have a process that works, and we don’t waste people’s time. The numbers speak for themselves: 93% of our submittals get the 1st interview and 70+% advance to the 2nd interview.
We Are Made Up of Quality Connection Builders
From excellent communication skills to honed networking strategies, we are connection-builders first and foremost. Recruiting all about building quality relationships, both with clients and candidates, so we strive to make first-class connections founded on trust and respect. With years of advancing these professional relationships, we are well-positioned to connect our candidates to the best companies and provide our clients with a candidate that is hand-picked according to their values, culture, and long-term goals.
Our Recruiters Are Able to Adapt Quickly
High-caliber recruiters have to be able to adapt quickly to new situations and adjust their goals accordingly. Whether it’s a client who needs something a little off the beaten path or a candidate with a stellar but unusual set of skills, great recruiters are able to pivot quickly and head in the right direction without too much downtime. At GRN Mid-Cities, we have been able to adjust to the market and then listen to the needs of our clients in order to pivot our business accordingly.
Our Best Team Members Are Good Listeners
You might think that as a sales-oriented industry, recruiters are constantly just tooting their own horn, or someone else’s for them. But that couldn’t be further from the truth here at GRN. Putting our clients’ needs first is what really sets us apart. An essential element of recruiting well is the ability to listen well and ask the right questions so that you gain a genuine understanding of your clients and candidates. We strive to understand our candidates on another level so that we can place them in a position that goes beyond checking the boxes and is the right environment for their personality, experience, and skills to grow.
GRN is an exceptional organization with big dreams for the future—continuing to lead the way in professional transition. My team at GRN Mid-Cities is proud to be a part of this, and my background in the investment industry gives me a unique edge in the areas we specialize in. If you’re looking for qualified executive candidates, I have your next best talent acquisition waiting in the wings. Ready to hire? Contact me today to get it done.
