Recruiting Process Consulting

The bigger the company, the more complex and difficult the recruiting process inevitably becomes.  Growing companies are challenged with a lack of recruiting expertise and processes that can keep them from making good hiring decisions.  Developing a world-class recruiting function is easier with outside eyes.  If your interview cycles are ridiculously long, if you’re seeing marginally qualified hires, or increased turnover at excessive cost, it’s time to look at the overall process.  We can help establish the recruiting function for a growing company or improve the efficiency and quality of what’s already in place. ETHOS Search Group will conduct a Recruiting Process audit to discover where your company’s weaknesses and strengths are and then develop the recommendations for creating optimal results.

A few critical areas of execution are outlined below:

Employee Referral Programs

Are you tapping into the network of your current employees? Get their buy-in on the recruiting process and in turn increase their motivation and loyalty to the company.  An employee referral program is the most strategic sourcing initiative.  ETHOS Search Group can help you ensure your program’s effectiveness is maximized.

Contract Recruiting

Periods of high-volume recruiting come and go.  If you know your peaks and valleys are just that, contract recruiting is a terrific solution to keep your recruiting function running efficiently and at a quality level.

ETHOS Search Group works with you to find a recruiter that is not only well qualified and experienced in your industry, but will also fit in with your workflow so you’ll see consistency in your recruiting process.  Depending on your needs, the recruiter can work either remotely or in-house, no matter where your department is located.

Behavioral Interview Skills Training

Are candidates put through 5+ interviews before a decision is made? Are your managers trained in assessment and selling techniques? Are you abiding by legal requirements?  ETHOS Search Group will train your interviewers to utilize five types of interviews to confidently screen candidates.

Personality Assessment Tools

“What were they thinking?”  We can help you answer that question with a variety of research tools that will help you better understand your current team members and how they prefer to work.  We can also utilize these tools to determine the best qualities and characteristics for success during the recruitment process.


Is your recruitment effort planned with headcount and expense budgets?  Are you aware of the time it takes to fill positions, or cost-per-hire and quality-of-hire statistics and trends?  Do you know which sources and channels are most effective?  Are you tracking EOE statistics for reporting?  Putting processes and benchmark measures in place to ensure your recruiting process is yielding the best new hires just has to be done.  If you can show the CEO these types of trends, you’re thinking strategically.  ETHOS Search Group can help.

Compensation Consulting

We can recommend appropriate compensation levels for specific job categories around the world.
