Canopy One's Talent Acquisition Process:

DEFINITION OF ASSIGNMENT

We research our client's company, the specific division that requires the resource, the industry, markets and competition

We then meet our client's key executives. Our perspective as an outside consultant enables us to objectively assess the demands of the position. We apply lessons and marketplace realities learned from other searches to source the right talent

Needs are analyzed and a position description is developed for client approval, which includes, responsibilities, qualifications, personal attributes and required talents.

SEARCH PLAN AND RESEARCH

A search plan is developed and tailored to the client's unique needs.

Dates are set for a status review, first candidate interview and closure.

Using a planned program of research on target companies, we systematically identify the names, location and title of the broadest population of potential candidates.

CANDIDATE RECRUITMENT

Confidential, direct approaches are made on a personal basis to prospective candidates.

A background profile is developed on interested individuals. This includes: Personal data, education, work experience, technical qualifications and current responsibilities

We provide the candidate's resumes which we reformat for consistency and ease of comparison.

STATUS REVIEW

Three to six weeks from the start(based upon the initial search plan) we set a meeting to review interim candidates, accumulated research, present our observations and obtain approval to screen the leading candidates

At this point we formulate a new plan for the next stage.

CANDIDATE EVALUTION-SCREENING

We conduct interviews with leading prospects and document their personal accomplishments, style, background, and motivations.

This interview report also covers "capturability" and projects our estimation of client candidate compatibility

CLIENT INTERVIEW

We brief and debrief candidates and client management, then arrange an introduction to the client's department where the talent is needed.

The extent of direct participation in the interview is dictated by our client.

OFFER AND ACCEPTANCE

Written reference and degree checks are submitted on the finalist candidate(s).

Our recruiting experience and outside perspective enables us to assist in designing a compensation package calculated to attract and capture the preferred candidates

We serve as the intermediary to work out all details which have a bearing on acceptance of the offer by the chosen candidate

ACCULTUR-ATION

We monitor the progress of integration by frequently communicating with both the hiring manager and the new employee to anticipate and avert potential problems and adjust as needed
