When time, complexity and confidentiality are critical, retained search firms are a sound option. Retained search is particularly appropriate when the need is urgent, the vacancy is causing significant pressures on company performance, or new projects emerge that must be quickly addressed.

Retained executive search represents a commitment from both sides and sends a strong message to candidates that the company highly values this opportunity.

Our performance-based pricing structure ensures that you are provided with:

  • Higher priority
  • Lower risk of bad hires

  • Headhunting capabilities
  • Access to resources you don’t have
  • In-depth Assessment strategies

At Bastian Consulting, our Consultants are committed to and accountable for filling your positions. The result of that singular dedication is an extremely high success rate for retained executive search.

To ensure that the candidate you hire will ultimately drive business success for your company, our retained search experts invest upfront in comprehensive research. For critically important hires, getting everything right the first time is crucial. By clarifying expectations and minimizing misunderstandings at the outset, we ensure that your organization moves efficiently through the retained recruiting process.
