Human resources solutions
Finding talented people is essential to most organizations’ success. While our search process reduces hiring risk, onboarding and engagement risks often arise after employees start their jobs. That’s why Mandrake services support the entire talent lifecycle: acquisition, acceleration, and retention. We also offer transition services for organizations looking to restructure their workforce.
Our executive search clients often ask us to fill manager and director positions, which we can do. In fact, we pride ourselves in supporting our clients’ businesses with premium talent acquisition services. Under the right conditions, our consultants can leverage our other recruitment platforms or solutions, including Mandrake Connect!
Mandrake frequently undertakes interim engagements to bridge the gap between an executive departure and a permanent hire, or for projects where a client prefers a full or part-time contractual arrangement. Interim hiring requires a speedy go-to-market strategy, which we accomplish through our unrivaled relationship network.
Mandrake Connect! enables Mandrake consultants to evaluate each project and its required search strategy. This platform allows us to identify the appropriate price, terms, and service offerings to suit each individual role, providing project leadership and strategic alignment, as well as operational efficiencies.
Most organizations acknowledge a gap between their expectations of a new hire and the results. But what kind of onboarding do these organizations do? Whether through promotion, transfer, returning from leave, or hired from the outside—how a leader starts has a huge impact on their long-term performance. A failed start can result in up to 10 times the cost of the actual hire to the organization.
Running Start™—Mandrake’s proprietary coaching program—reduces time to contribution by guiding a leader for the first 100 days in their new role. Our 10-step process includes a comprehensive workbook, complete with templates and guided conversations, both live and online. Running Start™ is the best talent investment you will ever make at a fraction of the cost of hiring. It unlocks performance and prevents avoidable issues, in effect, adding a layer of insurance to an executive hire.
Mandrake works with executives to improve and maximize their performance, helping organizations and individuals achieve their needs and goals. Whether executive or managerial, our coaching and training services can remediate performance issues and elevate your best employees to achieve more.
