Human Resources Case Study — Executive Recruitment

A local nonprofit healthcare organization needed assistance with recruiting a Vice President, Development for its relatively new and unknown Midwest office. The client had tried to fill the position several times, but they were unsuccessful in finding the right candidate.

Realizing their need for a professional recruitment assistance, the client engaged Warren Whitney to lead their executive search. We cast a broad net for recruiting candidates using a combination of Internet postings and tried-and-true networking tactics. After developing a sizable pool of qualified candidates, finalists were referred to the client’s search committee to select the best candidate to join their executive team.

The position was successfully filled with a highly qualified and experienced executive. Due the success of the search, the client reengaged Warren Whitney a few months later to recruit a Vice President, Development for it’s Richmond, Va. headquarters.

“I cannot begin to thank you for your help. You are such a professional and have the perfect touch. People were able to speak openly and honestly and confront their questions and concerns. It seems to have broken something open. Sitting back and watching gave me a wonderful perspective about the way folks process information which will be invaluable moving forward. I was able to learn a lot by watching you.”

“It has been delightful working with you! You did a wonderful job throughout the entire process… you were always timely in your responses to our requests, and in keeping us up to date. You selected top notch candidates which made our job much easier. All the candidates were great and it made you wish you had more than one position to fill.

When we need a recruiter you’re the person we want.”

“I attended the seminar this morning and heard from several HR pros from Warren Whitney. They did an EXCEPTIONAL job walking the group through the new FLSA Regulations that are getting ready to take effect. They were great presenters and very knowledgeable when answering questions and offering suggestions. I have been to several presentations and discussions on the policies, but today was definitely the best. It is good to feel like I have a much deeper understanding of all that is involved.”

“I just wanted to thank you for all the hard work you have done in your search for our new Executive Director. The candidates you presented were all excellent individuals and all were extremely qualified. Your professionalism and dedication is very evident in everything you have done.”
