The Gaspar Partners Approach

  1. WE UNDERSTAND YOUR ORGANIZATION

    We meet with key members of the team to learn more about company structure, operations, business strengths, and opportunities for your organization and marketplace. Going through this process prepares us for discussing the company and position with prospective candidates and enables us to assess possible candidates in terms of their styles and "fit."

  2. DEVELOP THE POSITION DESCRIPTION

    The position description outlines the basic responsibilities, title, reporting relationships, compensation, education, experience, and personal characteristics required to perform in the position that we are retained to help fill. This is developed following our initial meetings and, once approved, will serve as a selection guide during the course of the search.

  3. IDENTIFY QUALIFIED CANDIDATES

    A search to identify persons with qualifications that closely match the requirements sought is initiated after the position description has been finalized. Our experience shows that the best candidates are discovered through research that is designed for the specific search engagement. We utilize our network candidates known to the firm as well as targeting candidates that have been successful in your current business ecosystem.

  4. INTERVIEW CANDIDATES TO ASSESS QUALIFICATIONS AND EXPERIENCE

    The best qualified potential candidates are personally interviewed to evaluate their accomplishments, capabilities, style, and potential. Following our interview of candidates, we introduce them to the client via written summaries describing their past work experience, education, and other relevant information.

  5. PRESENT THE BEST QUALIFIED CANDIDATES

    Based on discussions with our client and further assessments by us, the candidates best qualified for the position are presented to the client and their interview team.

  6. CONDUCT REFERENCE CHECKS

    To protect a candidate's confidentiality, multiple references are generally conducted only after an expression of strong mutual interest by a candidate and the client.

  7. FINAL SELECTION AND SUCCESSFUL COMPLETION

    The final selection and offer of employment are usually made by the client. We are available to assist in negotiating appropriate compensation and structuring the compensation offer. We are also available to provide "new manager assimilation" and transition consulting.
