Soft skills : la clé d’une intégration réussie

A la difficulté de recruter dans un contexte de concurrence accrue, d’attirer les meilleurs talents, s’ajoute un autre problème souvent sous-estimé par un grand nombre d’entreprises : retenir ces talents.   Une statistique est éloquente : seuls 72 % des recrutements externes sont des succès.

We take in charge the entire mission:

· Context and position definition: to provide an external vision and a pragmatic expert opinion to analyze the context, identify the content of the position to be filled, study its coherence with the company's ecosystem, its integration and its impact up on the organization, its feasibility.

· Description of the profile, targeting and identification: we propose to validate the ideal profile, then a list of target companies relevant to guide our research. This indicative list does not exclude our usual and trademak "out of scope" search. The identification phasis then allows to sharp and focus in the approach. 

· Qualification: we are searching identified candidate individually and their professional career is qualified during a phone call of about twenty minutes. This phase allows us to understand their own professional project and to measure their motivation for mobility.

· Individual interviews: we interview a selection of identified and qualified profiles in face-to-face to deepen their project and their career path, validate the adequacy of their personality and ensure compatibility with the function and the company.

· Presentation: we then present a short-list composed of 3 to 4 qualified candidates, adjoined with a personalized and detailed file.

· Conclusion: we assist the company and the future partner in the crucial phase of the offer proposal, the contract preparation, the agreement constitution... then we help the future titular during his departure and resignation.

· Integration monitoring: we then folow-up the newcomer during his first months in the position, by regular individual meetings with him, his manager and the Human Resources department of the company.
