Exploratory meetings

At La tête chercheuse, we’re continually meeting professionals with interesting profiles. These exploratory meetings allow us to get to know them, pinpoint their underlying motives, and help them determine what kind of corporate culture suits them best.

It’s a unique and proactive method that gives us a better understanding of the market. It’s proven to be particularly effective: 42% of placed candidates come from exploratory meetings.

Human data

Data is king. That’s why we maintain a database of about 25,000 professionals – enough data to paint a complete and accurate picture of the evolution of talent in the industries we cover. This unique database is just one of the tools we use to find the perfect candidates, and quickly.
The art of gathering data: Boolean searches, social media, market research: no stones are left unturned to find the right candidates.

The strength of a team

Our team is made up of professionals with varied backgrounds, picked from the fields where we recruit. We approach every mandate with complementary points of view and perspectives, and always with a solid understanding of that industry. The team brings to the table both business smarts and a personal connection with the most sought-after talent.

Our compensation model without commission also promotes information sharing, which ultimately benefits our clients. When you meet a headhunter, you’re opening yourself up to a world of opportunity.

Creativity to recruit

Sometimes you have to think outside the box to get the job done, and that’s why we offer innovative solutions. For example, we can help you get a better understanding of the market or a better grasp of market perception of your organization. We can use our Sourcing Service to recruit multiple candidates for a single role on your team. Or we can outsource a headhunter to your offices for a specific amount of time. Looking for a new business partner to help grow your organization? We can help with that too.

Unique & proven

In our constant quest for innovation, we’ve adopted a tool that’s unique to the market: Scout Talent. Based on a grid of skills, abilities and values (scored on a scale of 1 to 10), Scout makes hiring a smart, motivating, and relevant experience. The program creates a perfect match between candidates’ motives and skills and corporate culture.

Explore needs

The first step is to select and define your criteria. In collaboration with our team, you’ll actively participate in the briefing.

Investigate the market

We’ve mastered the art of developing research strategies that uncover hidden gems who meet your defined criteria.

Present the candidates

As a Talent Tracker TM, we present our selection of candidates. Next, you meet and evaluate the proposed candidates and compare thoughts with your team.

Check references

We don’t leave anything to chance. A minimum of five (5) references are provided by the candidate and are thoroughly vetted.

Confirm satisfaction

After six (6) months in place, we follow up with the client and the candidate. An evaluation based on motivation, skills, and corporate culture is performed, and an LTC index (a measure of satisfaction) is provided.

We are specialists in talent and corporate culture. That means that in addition to recruitment, we’re also here to help develop, coach, and train so you can retain your talent longer.

Integration coaching

To ensure that your chosen candidate fits your organization, you can enhance our recruitment services with Integrated Coaching. These services include psychometric testing, for the candidate, their superiors, and eventually their team – so we can better understand the dynamics. We can even make a mapping of internal and external parties involved, to grease the wheels of those first weeks in the workplace. Also, you can opt for 15 hours of support during the first year of employment, which you’re welcome to share with your new employee.

Training & animation

We create resources and interactive activations designed to help participants become more open, knowledgeable, and competent. Our reputation is rooted in our application of innovative concepts, inspired by extensive research and case studies.
Our ability to animate or organize workshops for teams, CAs or executive committees can help you redesign your organization, open communication channels, grow relationships, and even refocus your business strategy.

Executive support

We offer personalized support services to meet the multiple needs of our clientele, from organizations to executives. For example, we provide monitoring services and competitive analysis that will give you the power to evaluate your value on the market. We can help you reflect on where you are in your career, you can take a psychometric test, or we can help you work on your professional branding. We’ll go as far as taking on an advisory role, providing co-development services, or we can set up a mentor-mentee arrangement.

From our first meeting on, I was impressed by the quality of listening skills which characterizes La tête chercheuse’s team members. In addition to listening to our needs, I greatly appreciated the quality of the presentation of candidate profiles; with very relevant and detailed summaries. The availability of the team members, always ready to serve and guide us throughout the recruitment process, is also a remarkable skill representing La tête chercheuse.

At Radio-Canada, we have to think outside the box; we must be creative and relevant. This reality has been very well understood by La tête chercheuse. In addition to presenting the most relevant and complete candidates in the industry, they often present us candidates with a different profile. This will often allow us to question ourselves and adjust our needs. They monitoring the complete market which generates very relevant communications. They do take the time to understand the organization, its challenges and goals, and help us frame our needs realistically.

With a professionalism, the ability to listen and the proven understanding of the mandates, La tête chercheuse has proposed excellent candidates. They did not hesitate to come and meet us, and to talk to the managers in order to understand the mandate and the profile we were looking for. If necessary, La tête chercheuse is quick to adjust its search if necessary. Thanks again for the great work.
