As the end of 2018 approaches, startup and technology companies in growth mode who recognize the impact of making the right hires the first time are turning to their valued recruiting partner, Millennium Search, to get the best teams in place and maximize the impact of their leadership and talent.

Exclusive Search Trend Resulting in Highest Success Rates

With greater frequency, clients have abandoned contingency strategies with multiple firms in favor of the results the experienced Millennium Search recruiters deliver under exclusive and/or retained models for Sales, Pre/Post-Sales, Marketing, Design, Product Management, and C-level searches.

Of the active 2018 client agreements to-date, 65% have resulted in hires or are in final offer status, with 82% of them as a result of an exclusive recruiting partnership with Millennium Search. 88% of year-to-date active agreements involved engagement in more than 1 search.

Founder and CEO, Amish Shah, states that “in 2018, Millennium Search has focused more of our time in working with client partners as opposed to companies in need of one and done relationships.” Shah further elaborates that by working closely in step with hiring managers, the recruiting team is able to fully learn the desired candidate's makeup and quickly deliver the right talent across multiple departments and roles. “Kicking off searches is accomplished immediately and without delay in candidate submission. This provides clients the opportunity to ramp up productivity and accomplish economic growth much sooner by working with a trusted partner,” Shah explains.

Pivot Toward Long-Term Hiring Partnerships

The experienced team of recruiters fosters relationships with clients interested in investing effort into quality discussions and delivers accordingly. After quickly discovering that the Millennium Search recruiters can handle the challenges, clients engage in long-term partnerships with the team.

“The goal of every recruiting partnership is to deliver the best results to earn repeat business, both internally as new hiring needs arise, and via referrals to other hiring managers and growing industries. Because of the Millennium Search recruiters’ ability to ingrain themselves with their clients and contacts, our firm has been able to make more of a pivot to focused retainers and exclusive search models,” shares Director of Operations, Molly Gamache.

Contingency searches are still being taken on as a useful way to win business and build long-term relationships, but the firm’s approach is to work increasingly with companies seeking help across multiple hiring roles, or building out their first teams or with non-US companies looking to build their US-based staff.

As evidenced by this year's data, the Millennium Search partnership approach works for emerging high-growth startups and technology companies climbing into Fortune 500 rankings who need to build strong teams consistently. Millennium Search was established in 2003 and has become a premier executive search firm because of their trusted recruiting team of Sandy BleichMarc FoxKathy Gwozdz, and Mark Cergol's combined 40-plus years of experience placing talent into the full spectrum of roles including C-level executives, quota-carrying sales, sales management, marketing, senior level technical/engineering, pre- and post-sales, product management, business operations, UI/UX design and data/analytics.
