GreenSearch® is the premier human capital solutions organization dedicated exclusively to meeting the employment-related needs of companies and organizations in the green industry and allied trades nationwide. Our search services deal primarily with assisting our client companies with locating excellent candidates for their difficult to fill mid to senior level management, professional, and sales positions as well as consulting with our client companies on unique ways to improve their company’s performance through smarter utilization of people and total rewards strategies.
What level of positions do you target for your key management and professional searches?
Typically, we place senior-level operations management and sales leaders in all segments of the green industry.
What are your specialties?
We are a generalist firm, that is, we strive to completely understand our client’s business so that we can recruit and perform consulting services across all disciplines throughout the green industry and allied trades.
Do you represent the candidate or the hiring company?
The company or firm that hires candidates that are sourced, recruited and submitted by GreenSearch® compensates us. Our client is, accordingly, the hiring company or firm. However, candidates who present themselves to GreenSearch® represent the primary component of the executive search services we provide. Therefore, we value our relationships with both our clients and candidates.
Are you a “retained” or “contingency” firm? How are your fees structured?
Our main focus is primarily retainer-based assignments. That is, we are paid some portion of the fee to begin the assignment and the remainder upon completion and total satisfaction of the client company.
Why should our company use GreenSearch®?
That’s easy. Not only are we the most experienced provider to partner with you toward the identification and placement of outstanding key management or professionals to join your team, but we also can help you integrate the talents of this person into your company. For example, many times, hiring a new, well-qualified manager may give you new options in restructuring your company, installing new compensation programs, or defining new and more effective policies and procedures. Our human resources consulting skills give you a “one-stop-shopping” capability to take the information we already have about your company and use it to help you make new and necessary changes to benefit your people strategy.
