What We Do

DBL Associates partners with your executives and, in effect, becomes an extension of your company to source and recruit the person who is the right “fit” for your organization.  To do this properly, it is important that you feel comfortable with us and our approach to the recruiting process.  We provide a very personal approach to finding quality professionals, believe in the “golden rule,” and work closely with our clients to fulfill their staffing needs.  We recognize it takes a great deal of hard work and persistence to uncover and attract the person you ultimately hire.  DBL Associates identifies and interviews every candidate, regardless of the level of assignment, and only recommends qualified candidates.  We try to treat everyone with respect and candor.  We understand a company’s most valuable assets are the people they hire and retain.  Using current technology tools, social media, and especially the broad network of candidates cultivated over thirty years, and personal experience, we are able to locate the one person who will be the perfect fit to your organization.  We understand we are only as good as our last assignment.  We have been told by many clients we are the best recruiting firm they have ever hired.

How We Do It

DBL Associates conducts search activity on both an “exclusive contingency” basis and a retained basis. Our retained search approach is structured so that the pressure is on us to perform. A small portion of the fee is paid upfront (to cover operating costs) and the remainder of the fee is only paid when the selected candidate accepts the offer and begins employment. To properly identify the best candidate for your organization we:

Obtain a thorough understanding of the strategic and tactical objectives of this role;
Work with the hiring manager to understand his/her management style and get a clear appreciation of the company’s culture;
Review interview techniques with the hiring manager to assist in the interviewing process; work with the hiring manager to identify areas not easy to evaluate in an interview;
Conduct formal interview with each candidate prior to recommending to determine if their qualifications and behavioral traits are aligned with the objectives of the company;
Conduct formal reference checks on each final candidate;
Assist in the pre-negotiation, offer, closing, and job transition process.
