Very often, and understandably so, recruiters acquired a bad name for treating candidates as pieces of assets as they are under pressure to make a placement. At the Big Bee Search, relationship and trust with people take priority over an immediate placement. We treat our candidates with full respect and empathy. We are in it with our clients and candidates for the long run. We we care about how we come across. We care even more about having a growth strategy and creating a win-win situation for everybody rather than merely making a one-off fee.
As consultants, we work on improving our market knowledge on daily basis so that we can provide a thoroughly researched, studied, and practical solution to the people we work with. We examine every situation with care and treat your headache as our own. We take time to meet with people and understand our candidates. We believe that trust and rapport can only be built in person – not via a telephone, and least of it via emails.
Honesty & Openness
We are a team of solution-focused and caring individuals. We are open and honest with client and candidates. We act as your recruitment solution and career advisor.
If a hiring mandate requires immediate action as well as a relatively long period of effort, we will tell you that a retained search is your best solution. If you are not certain about the urgency of your hire and would appreciate a fair amount of external resourcing and advices, we will advise on tackling the problem with a contingent approach. We do not force a solution on you. We help you reach your objectives. We have on-going open dialogs with clients and candidates, so as to act in your best interest.
The hardest part of the job is to be tough enough with clients and tell them ‘no’ when it is needed. Sometimes. it is just a ‘no, we can’t do it;’ or ‘no, this is unrealistic.’ We will be honest with you without being offensive. Because we are sensitive and empathetic towards the people we work with. However, we do not like to sugar-coat reality as we believe that reality checks help you get stronger, more aligned, and more competitive.
Moreover, we refer you to the people in our network who can best assist you, as a good will lasts longer.
We are not quantity-driven. We are driven by quality and quality only –in our work and in our network. We work with those who trust us, and want to work with us. We let people make their own decisions.
We approach our clients and candidates with ultimate professionalism and discretion. We mirror the way our candidates and clients work, and think. Being the trusted career advisor and recruitment partner are our goals in the process.
