Professional Executive and Management Services
Strategic Hospitality Search has demonstrated a unique ability to locate and attract talented and creative professionals, and match them perfectly with client cultures to optimize their creativity and productivity.
Strategic Hospitality Search is committed to understanding every client’s vision and every candidate’s career objectives. The result: highly personalized, effective and efficient service as well as expert counsel to clients and candidates.
As an integral and dependable partner, we exponentially increase client efficiency by delivering talent otherwise unobtainable via conventional recruitment practices.
Successful business managers make more investments than they incur expenses. Money spent on expenses is forever gone, but an investment bears fruit today, tomorrow and for a lifetime. Your relationship with Strategic Hospitality Search is an investment, a partnership, within which you save valuable time and you enjoy a substantial return.
Conventional recruiting efforts, no matter how clever, do not deliver the results Strategic Hospitality Search does. Thousands of top professionals confide in us, and will never see your advertisement.
- Perhaps your posting is running in Phoenix, but the BEST fit lives in San Diego.
- The biggest portion of the most talented candidates simply do not seek out your postings.
- Our staff spends hundreds of hours each week qualifying candidates so we can respond quickly when you call. We use a potent combination of resources to fulfill your search.
Our agency specializes in the many areas of hospitality, and the synergy is very evident.
- Perhaps the BEST candidate for your food service operation is currently working in a restaurant, but they would never think to consider your opportunity unless it was personally presented to them.
- Perhaps the BEST fit for your private club is a Food & Beverage Director who lives just 20 miles away, but it requires a consultative approach to discuss the position with this candidate.
We think outside the box, giving you an edge over your competition.
As with any worthwhile partnership we need to get started right, keep the lines of communications open, and ensure our goals are mutual throughout the process.
Our professional services agreement is signed so that both parties are secure in the services being rendered and fees involved. We offer an evaluation period, providing security for your investment.
A Strategic Hospitality Search professional learns your expectations and requirements for the position to be filled.
Candidates are presented to you via email. Your recruiter will contact you via telephone to review the candidates. It may be old fashioned, but we prefer the phone versus email.
Your recruiter provides excellent service by arranging all interviews and completing reference checks.
Your recruiter will present your offer, counsel candidates through transition, and assist with relocation if necessary.
You saved time not having to “screen out” scores of candidates that “looked good on paper.” You worked efficiently by letting a professional schedule interviews at your convenience. The probability of success with your new hire is multiplied because the field of selection was improved several-fold.
Can’t I get the same results by spending loads of money on job board postings?
No. No matter how much money you spend on advertising, there will always be a population of candidates we represent and we reach who are unobtainable through conventional corporate recruiting methods.
It might be good for those huge corporations, but can I afford it?
Can you afford not to ensure you hire the best person for the job? Operators spend thousands on equipment, fixtures, china and silver only to hire a chef or manager who walks in because they saw a sign in the window.
PEOPLE are your most valuable asset. Invest in a search process that is thorough and accurate, giving you the highest probability of success.
How much does it cost up-front?
Nothing. If your search is a contingency search, which most management searches are, you pay absolutely nothing until you hire one of our referred candidates.
If the candidate does not work out, isn’t my investment is lost?
No. One thing we offer that no advertiser can is an evaluation period, a period of time after the hire in which we will remain on call should things not work out during the first several weeks.
How can I keep my recruiting process completely confidential, even from others in my own company?
Conduct a confidential retained search. We know how to handle the most tender of situations at the corporate, regional and unit levels.
Don’t recruiters just tell you what you want to hear so they can earn a fee?
While some agencies will do whatever they can to make a sale, we take pride in our legacy of integrity and our references will concur.
There are so many hospitality-specific agencies from which to choose. Why should I choose Strategic Hospitality Search?
Yes, there are several agencies. However, you will be hard-pressed to find an agency with the dedication, commitment, legacy of integrity, resources and service that comes in a partnership with Strategic Hospitality Search.
