Other recruiting systems either don’t work for you, or work against you. Our Inside-Out Approach works with you, and continues after your executive search is completed

At Perry Martel, we believe that the “full retainer – no contingency” fee system of many executive search firms does not provide the proper incentive to the search firm to effectively execute the task.

We also believe that the “no retainer – full contingency” fee system of employment agencies seldom results in a quality search, because assignment turnover and not client service, becomes the firm’s principle concern.

A Near Perfect Success Rate

Perry-Martel’s system captures the best features of traditional systems along with encouraging your involvement in the process, resulting in a more successful project. It’s this openness and transparency of our methodology that enables us to offer our clients a One-Year Guarantee.  Perry-Martel’s aim when developing the Inside-Out Approach was to able to always produce the highest quality search so clients would never have need to use the One-Year Guarantee.

Since founding Perry-Martel International Inc. in 1988, we’ve only replaced five candidates. The level of rigor built in to the Referencing and Evaluation Process has resulted in a 99.54% success rate in an industry where a sub 30% stick rate is the norm.  That is why David was approached to write several books on executive recruiting and executive search.

Both Hiring Greatness: How to Recruit Your Dream Team and Crush the Competition, and Executive Recruiting for Dummies detail a large part of the Inside-Out Approach  which demonstrates how we can offer a One Year Guarantee.

The books are widely available in business book stores across North America and Europe.  Hiring Greatness is also now available in Simplified Chinese.
