The Colonial Group offers various search options from which our clients may choose. At the most basic level, we offer contingency searches. These searches work best for the lower priority searches for very basic roles. These searches are often chosen because of their ease of use and require no up front financial commitment.
We also do a great deal of our business in the retained search area. In the end, these searches typically cost no more than contingency, but are guaranteed to be worked on as a priority until filled. Our retained model offers our clients the best experience and the quickest fill rate.
In either search choice, our placement ratios are well above industry standards. In fact, they are generally 4-5 times better than the rest of the market. On retained searches our placement ratio is 100%.
Our search completion times are typically half that of other search firms. In addition, we take great pride in our success rate in supporting diversity candidate initiatives.
