Smaller Search Firms Praised for Expertise and Better Results

Smaller, boutique search firms have a higher level of expertise and yield greater results, according to research findings published by Hunt Scanlon Media and reported by Wilmington Biz and London based Executive Grapevine.  More than 1,000 human resource professionals took part in Hunt Scanlon Media’s Executive Search State of the Industry report.  The study says that “independent recruiters, those boutique specialists concentrating on just a small number of business sectors, are truly redefining a field once dominated by a handful of large, generalist search firms.”

Big firms certainly have their benefits, the Hunt Scanlon report says, including brand name recognition.  But one of their biggest drawbacks is their recruiting restrictions.  According to the report, “Boutique search firms promise more attention to the client’s needs – they tout themselves as more nimble, flexible and high-touch.”  Heads of talent acquisition are becoming more accepting and reliant of these specialists running their mission critical search assignments, reports Hunt Scanlon.  The report indicates, in fact, they are driving the trend.

Fit, these recruiters say, has become the new mantra, with cultural sensitivity trumping a candidate’s skill set.  Boutique firms are uniquely positioned to meet these new requirements.
