Integrated People Solutions sets the standard for Retained Executive Search. We believe the best way to positively impact our clients’ performance is through providing them with high quality leadership.

When you choose IPS for retained executive search, you will Hire Greatness.

Our core business is identifying, assessing and recruiting leadership talent into our client’s key positions in support of their business plan. Our fresh approach to executive search includes behaviorally based interview processes and assessment tools, precise candidate evaluation and systematic talent delivery. We often hear from our clients that our approach yields seamless execution of the impossible search. We are uniquely positioned to deliver future leaders for our clients.

The IPS Approach

Integrated People Solutions’ main focus is to identify and place executives that positively impact your organization’s bottom line. The following is a typical search timeline:
1. Assemble Search Team
Identify the search lead and researcher with appropriate industry experience.
2. Finalize Position Specification

The Position Specification serves as a working guide to the search staff and helps us narrow the focus to those candidates who meet or exceed all of your criteria and expectations.

3. Develop Search Strategy
We develop a search strategy that includes the industries and companies that will yield the most fertile source of recommendations, referrals, and potential candidates.
4. Confidential References

Confidential and discreet reference and background checking occurs throughout the process and is integral to how we identify potential candidates.

5. Presentation of Candidates

Once we have identified, interviewed, and evaluated these individuals, we will present the best qualified to you by means of an in-depth candidate profile.

6. Final Selection and Negotiation
The final selection and offer, of course, are your responsibility, but we remain as involved as you desire throughout all negotiations, and monitor the successful candidate between acceptance and start date.
