Our Approach

Torch Group’s team of experts takes a highly-personalized, yet structured and strategic approach to identifying and proactively recruiting candidates that best meet our clients’ executive leadership needs. We start by closely communicating with each client and investing the time to learn about the organization, its people, and its culture. We become an extension of your company, adding value by keeping your best interests at heart, and using our knowledge and expertise to make recommendations and guide you.

We start each search assignment by setting a clear timeline for deliverables and providing our Search Criteria Checklist, a mutually agreed upon roadmap for evaluating and delivering qualified candidates. We next employ passive candidate research and initiate our proven 8-step Signature Search Process™, which includes both competency and values-based behavioral interviewing.

We listen carefully to all of our candidates in order to understand their career aspirations and motivations and then invite those who fit your cultural criteria and functional requirements to consider your opportunity. We believe that this relationship and partnering methodology is the optimal way to identify, evaluate, and present our clients with high-impact candidates who are truly a perfect fit and will make a significant difference within the organization.

When it is time to present candidates to our clients, along with a résumé, we submit a written interview report that provides insights into each person’s potential fit into your organization, their strengths, career potential, and developmental needs. As a result, our success and retention rates exceed industry averages. Torch Group guarantees* that our recommended candidates will be a solid cultural fit and long-term asset.
