We are re-envisioning standard industry models to produce a sharper focus that creates real value for organizations while respecting the integrity of every candidate. This keeps our clients at the center of everything we do and provides a framework for implementing best practices that align with our clients’ long-term business goals.
The Acertitude way
We’re committed to revitalizing the executive placement experience for clients and candidates alike. Our approach is rooted in five key guiding principles:
We believe our success and the success of our clients are inextricably linked. At every level of our organization, the Acertitude team is seamlessly aligned with our clients’ goals. This applies to the people we hire, the depth of our client partnerships, the shape of our training investments, and the foundation of our unique compensation and performance systems that reward teamwork and tie to client satisfaction. This approach frees our team to deliver exemplary client service.
Our placement practices align with our clients’ business goals, and our performance metrics tie to client satisfaction. In addition to customary measures, our self-imposed barometer gauges the impact of our work well beyond the initial placement, measuring stick rates, promotion rates, ROI, and other business factors.
Our goal is to improve our clients’ experience. Our model focuses on listening attentively, anticipating needs, and offering truly innovative solutions — throughout every phase of the client partnership. That journey begins with in-depth analysis of the client’s needs, proactive talent mapping, and original research for each engagement. This enables us to identify the best available talent through state-of-the-art assessment tools, ensuring a deep and insightful evaluation of each candidate’s cultural fit.
We believe the true measure of a successful placement lies in the positive, meaningful impact that the new executive makes on a client’s organization, rather than simply candidate placement. We help clients reach and surpass that tipping point — at which candidates deliver substantive, lasting value to the enterprise — through long-term strategic guidance and ongoing client service.
Treating candidates well
Acertitude’s approach is rooted in treating people fairly and honorably. For the candidate, that means making a concerted effort to understand their goals and talents so that we can match their aspirations with the right cultural fit. For our clients, we pay close attention to our role as talent brand ambassadors to ensure their organizations are top destinations for talent.
