Healthcare Executive Search Firms: Kraft Search Associates' Quality Outcomes Lead the Industry

December 05, 2008 (PRLEAP.COM) Health News
Most healthcare executive search firms keep their quality outcomes private. Kraft Search Associates is leading healthcare executive search firms in continuing to publish quality results. Actually, this is the third consecutive year Kraft Search Associates has led all healthcare executive search firms with reporting quality outcomes. Will other healthcare executive search firms report?

Every healthcare executive search firm has performance data readily available that defines recruiting effectiveness, according to Paul Frankenberg, CEO and Co-Founder of Kraft Search Associates, LLC, a retained healthcare executive search firm with offices in both Nashville, TN and Dallas, TX. However, most healthcare executive search firms do not divulge this information to anyone outside of the inner circle. And, the reasons are obvious. Releasing detailed information that defines the healthcare executive search firm's recruiting efficiency, 12-month post-placement retention rates, and repeat client information could adversely impact the healthcare executive search firm's image and sales process.

This Healthcare Executive Search firm, Kraft Search Associates, is focused on meeting the need for high-quality senior executive talent throughout the Healthcare industry. "We are keenly aware of the increasing trend within Healthcare to effectively monitor, manage, and report on a variety of metrics pertaining to key quality outcomes. Quality reporting is happening in more and more segments of the Healthcare industry and I believe Healthcare Executive Search Firms should be proactive," reports Mr. Frankenberg. "As a result, client companies have a right to expect the same level of measurement and accountability from their healthcare executive search firm as they require of themselves."

Since Kraft Search Associates' inception, the healthcare executive search firm has been an innovator in linking a client's business strategy to the executive search process and outcome.
