Better Hiring Decisions! The Power of Executive Search


Executives depend on the quality of their people to achieve their corporate and personal career goals.

The job offer – a fad or necessity?

Job offer

Quite often we draw on international experience. This goes for all fields of our lives, which renders them simpler. In order to facilitate the recruitment process, we have also borrowed a few things from international companies, namely the signing of the “job offer” between the candidate and the employer.

Support to businesses or total control? Staff check of businesses


The State Labor Service of Ukraine (SLSU) has announced its intention of establishing a stricter control over businesses employing new staff. The corresponding checks will be also conducted with the support of the employees of the SLSU, National Police, employment centers, The Pension Fund, local authorities, etc. The main goal of these checks is to reveal any unreported employment.

Executive partner to the specialized agency “Financial personnel”

The client is a recruitment agency “Financial personnel”, founded in 2007. The unique advantage of the agency is its specializing exclusively in the field of recruitment of accountants and financial experts (economists). The fact that all of the agency’s recruitment consultants are required to possess a prior professional experience in one of the aforementioned fields plays a key role here. 

Why you should not provide candidates’ CVs on a rolling basis

Every recruiter surely knows the answer to the question “When should the candidates’ CVs be submitted?” - “Against the clock!”. Such a short dialogue is a harbinger of problems. Unfortunately, not every recruiter can be just as frank giving away the big “secret”: if a company wants to get the CVs against the clock, the search should have started well before yesterday. The longer the process, the more problems will arise. Normally, an employer keeps insisting, saying, “I am not going to wait for you providing me with CVs of 3-5 candidates. I want to get CVs on a rolling basis!” By consenting to do that, a recruiter makes the same big mistake, which in 99% of cases will inevitably lead to dire consequences. What are those consequences? 

Heading towards a bright future and overcoming the economic crisis after quarantine is over

The quarantine restrictions are still in place. However, the government needs to carry on working. Hence, the announcement of the quarantine exit strategy for Ukraine had been expected and important to all members of the Ukrainian society.   

Telecommuting – a temporary necessity or a step towards the future?

People are gradually getting adjusted to the new reality. Hence, due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 many a change has occurred in different domains of human activity. Obviously, a full isolation cannot take place within a society, and the most important economic sectors have to carry on functioning. The majority of state organizations have introduced telecommuting. In general, telecommuting is something people have been aware of and practicing for quite a long time now, since lots of organizations practice it, maintaining that this step towards the future is quite important. Therefore, such transfer could be foreseen. Now, the question has arisen about how organizations are supposed to resume their work after quarantine has been lifted. 

Things will surely get back to normal with the whole working process not exempt. Therefore, working hours and the optimization of the working process are being handled right now. In this regard, the prime minister has announced the Ukraine’s strategy of getting out of quarantine. For the time being the strategy contains some preliminary steps to be taken. Nevertheless, it is promised that “by the beginning of May Ukraine will have resumed working”. In light of this, a wide range of problems will need solving, such as creating new jobs, providing assistance to small and medium enterprises, lifting public transport limitations and taking decisions regarding working conditions. 

A significant number of surveys have been conducted with a view to finding out the employers’ attitude towards telecommuting. According to the results, a vast majority of them would like to get back to the normal office workflow. This is caused by technical inconveniences, problems with controlling the working process and decrease in employees’ productivity. 20% of the respondents have also indicated a positive side of telecommuting – cutting down on expenses. 

Due to the present situation prompt and productive decisions are to be made. One can treat telecommuting differently. Some organizations have had the intention of introducing it for quite some time, some have been faced with this necessity for the very first time, whereas others may be not as lucky: the quarantine limitations have led such economy sectors as hotel and restaurant businesses, tourism, shopping malls and entertainment centers, beauty services and others to experience financial problems. Naturally, telecommuting is not possible in these sectors. 

To sum up, we may here quote the old adage “What doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger”. Thus, by joint efforts we will stay healthy, overcome the crisis and come up with new and original ways to solve any problems.
