Hunt Scanlon saw a piece that we originally wrote back in 2014 entitled “When Should I Use an Executive Search Firm?” and asked if it could feature our advice. The Good Search Founder and Chief Executive Officer Krista Bradford says, “We enjoy sharing executive search best practices in recruitment. One key question that search buyers have is how to determine whether they’re ready to use a retained executive search firm.”

Hunt Scanlon’s shares Ms. Bradford’s insight that the search must be important enough to warrant investing in a retained search,

“I use the word investment for a reason,” said Krista Bradford, founder and CEO of The Good Search, in a recent report. “A retained executive search will likely cost you a minimum of $50,000 and averages $100,000 or more — one-third of a candidate’s first-year total cash compensation. Typically, these are senior-executive roles with salaries averaging $300,000 or more.”

The Hunt Scanlon article also highlights Ms. Bradford’s advice on how to do the math,

“The importance of a senior executive role can be measured financially,” Ms. Bradford said. “How much money might this executive make for your company? If you don’t find the right person, how much money might this company lose? If the cost of not filling the role with the right candidate is significantly higher than the cost of the search, then you may be ready to consider investing in the services of a retained executive search firm.”
