Healthcare Executive Search Firms: Focus Search Partners' Quality Outcomes Lead the Industry

January 04, 2012 (PRLEAP.COM) Health News
Every executive search firm has operational performance data readily available that defines their recruiting effectiveness, according to Paul Frankenberg, CEO, President and Founder of Focus Search Partners, LLC, a retained Healthcare executive search firm with offices in Nashville, TN, Atlanta, GA, Dallas, TX and Denver, CO. However, most firms do not divulge this information to anyone outside of the inner circle. And, the reasons are obvious. Releasing detailed information that defines the firm's recruiting efficiency, 12-month post-placement retention rates, and repeat client information could adversely impact their firm's image and sales process.

This Healthcare Executive Search firm is focused on meeting the need for high-quality senior executive talent in 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 it will continue to deepen and expand," 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 these companies require of themselves."
