Allen Adell only provides services to the Healthcare industry and has a demonstrated knowledge of the unique culture and roles organizations play. The firm is constantly building and sustaining its network of top Healthcare talent by being on the front lines and communicating with healthcare professionals daily. The basic nature of the process of sourcing candidates is to identify where the talent is, directly contact and fully qualify them, and if appropriate, introduce your opportunity. Allen Adell specializes in building its clients by delivering top 5% talent ("A" players) across multiple functional areas, a success model that yields great benefits for Allen Adell's clients.
By limiting its number of client partnerships, Allen Adell does not encounter the conflicts and recruiting restrictions experienced by many firms. This strategy allows the company to develop in-depth relationships with its customers in order to understand their strategy, organizational capabilities, competencies and culture. By truly knowing its clients and utilizing a uniquely cultivated recruiting methodology, Allen Adell is able to achieve outstanding performance. Since 2003, the firm has completed 100% of its searches and over 71% of its business has come from either referred or repeat clients.
Allen Adell works with hiring managers to drive talent as a source of competitive differentiation. This differentiation is leveraged to produce both top and bottom line results. Whether it is a top-grading strategy, expansion, transformation effort, backfill or the development of a nucleus of current and future leaders, our track record of success easily answers why clients have chosen Allen Adell as their partner in talent acquisition.
Unlike most big name firms, Allen Adell does not delegate search assignments to junior associates. You will be solving your management needs with a hands-on owner principal who shares your concerns and knows your business. Since 1989, the Managing Partner has been helping clients and candidates achieve their goals by building long-term relationships based on trust, professionalism, and results. The trust established with candidates is evident in the fact that many of these candidates eventually have become clients, and many clients have continued to use Allen Adell's services for years.
