“Other firms rush in; don’t do the deep dive to understand needs that BSG does. PE firms value their time and BSG understands that. They do not waste time on people that are not a fit. BSG use of video is key to the success of the process - this twofold approach is unique to BSG. Likes that the Fireside Chat is available to candidates but also feels that our candidate videos are a huge plus in screening candidates before actually interviews. Allows deeper dive with candidates. BSG’s systematic interview process far exceeds what we have experienced with other search firms.”
"We chose BSG because we felt that their approach would be more systematic and more transparent than other Executive Search Firms that we have used. Indeed, the weekly reviews which were always conducted on time and efficiently, the access to their candidate development list, and our ability to preview recorded candidate interviews before meeting with candidates all supported a very effective process.
Beyond that, BSG's ability to listen to our requirements and their ability to design a search around our specific requirements was the ultimate key to the success of our CEO search. We never felt as if we were receiving a recycled list of "the usual suspects" and we were impressed that they continued to carry out candidate development to the very end even as we began to focus on our finalist. We highly recommend them.”
“BSG filled the CEO position with an excellent candidate in an extremely short time period, and more important, this candidate turned out to be a world class CEO with extreme market knowledge and experience that was unique to our company."
"The tools that BSG used helped them understand our culture. No other search firms we talked to used them. Also, BSG has a unique process that allowed us to get to know the candidates more quickly, a very efficient way to do so. BSG was very professional, we felt we were in good hands. They sourced a lot of good candidates relatively quickly."
“Our most recent search with BSG had a number of complicating and potentially competitive features. Getting alignment from all the key stakeholders was important and doing in a way that each felt heard and thus supportive of the search process was critical. The BSG team did an excellent job setting expectations and gaining consensus on our executive search.
BSG has a depth of research and pattern matching methodology that really drives to understand not just what the candidate work experience had been, but also what their work style and culture fit parameters are. The right resume with poor chemistry to the management team is not fit at all. The opposite is true. BSG was able to find candidates who were on paper over qualified for the position, but ended up having such a strong connection and chemistry to the company's industry and its team, that we were able to consider superior candidates for the position.
A number of the candidates that I talked with claimed the one of the special tools BSG uses to introduce the company was particularly influential in taking the next step with BSG on the search. BSG’s tool was a great way to provide candidates a better understanding of who we were and generate interest and excitement in our company.”
