Our Approach to Executive Search and Professional Recruiting

What we do

A Proprietary Process That Produces Results - Guaranteed

We understand that you are not simply looking to fill an open position, but rather you’re looking to solve a business problem with an extraordinary new leader. HCS has built a proprietary business platform with recruiting and discovery tools that successfully align companies with top professional talent. Using our unique discovery method, Zero-Based Position Description Design, and facilitation process with clients and candidates, we significantly reduce the subjectivity of the hiring process and identify top-performing leaders for your organization. We are so confident in our process and approach to executive search that we back our results with our Performance Assurance Guarantee.

How we do it

Our 3-step Approach Delivers Real Results


Client Discovery

Our executive search approach starts by taking you through a proprietary discovery process where we learn about your culture, values, unique needs, and the true impact that your employees have on your organization. Our unique Zero-Based Position Description Design, which is comprised of our Desired Outcomes Questionnaire, Department Current State and Subdiscipline Assessment (DCCSA) GAP Analysis, and Position Description and Performance Guide, allows our firm to target top-performing talent that is the optimal fit for both the competency and subdiscipline requirements for each client’s unique culture.

Together we discover the “real” organizational culture and achieve hiring team consensus through:


Candidate Match

Armed with your company voice, we utilize recruiting strategies that can help you hire high-performing players that intimately match your company culture.

We determine the candidate’s mutual interest, qualifications, career stage, values, competency, and organizational alignment using our assessments and evaluations:
