How the search process works

Our process is a partnership. We know the talent market. You know your organization. Together, we’ll create a strategic plan that leads us to the right person for your role. We’ll manage the process from start-to-finish, including:

  1. Kickoff: Creating a search strategy based on your needs
  2. Screen: Finding and vet candidates from our network and the greater community
  3. Present: Providing robust, detailed information about our top candidates
  4. Assess: Conducting interviews and facilitate evaluation conversations
  5. Negotiate and close: Finalizing offer details and timing

Accelerating new leader success:
Salo’s Accelerated Integration Solution

After a stellar candidate is selected, the next step is providing the tools they need to be successful at your organization. (Afterall, according to Gartner, over 30% of new executive leaders fail within 18 months of starting a new job.)

Salo’s proprietary “Accelerated Integration Solution” helps the new leader hit the ground running. Provided as part of our search process (at no additional cost), this unique and proprietary program includes more than 40 videos/on-demand assets and six hours of live executive coaching—accelerating time-to-productivity, new executive engagement, leadership assimilation, and overall success of the placed executive.

Salo's winning search formula: Culture + Competency

At Salo, we know effective searches consider culture and competency in equal measure. For more than 18 years, we've used that philosophy to successfully place thousands of consulting experts and permanent professionals. We also use this process to hire talent for our organization – it's one of the reasons we have been perennially recognized as a great place to work.
