Frequently asked questions

IS HUMAN FACTOR COMPANY CAPABLE OF RECRUITING GENUINELY HIGH-CLASS SPECIALISTS?

“There’s lots of good fish in the sea…maybe…but the vast masses seem to be mackerel or herring, and if you’re not mackerel or herring yourself, you are likely to find very few good fish in the sea.” This marvelous phrase by David Lawrence, an English writer, excellently describes work in the field of Executive Search. We cooperate with the market leaders and definitely know that our honorable clients need not “mackerel or herring”, but “sharks”, “barracudas”, and “marlines”. Our company offers only “big fish”. We fish out only those the market requires and open the doors for their career Gulf Stream. That’s our job and we are truly proud of it.

ARE YOU CONSTANTLY LOOKING FOR NEW TALENTS? WE HEARD THAT HEADHUNTERS OFTEN WORK WITH THE SAME GROUP OF SPECIALISTS…

“Guitar groups are on their way out.” That was the wording used by the record company Decca Recording, when refusing the young music band from Liverpool. As the saying goes, let it be.

Another bright example: a big Swedish publishing house once decided not even to print out three quite massive manuscripts, sent by an unremarkable journalist. Few years later, the crime novels by Stieg Larsson appeared at the top of the best-seller list worldwide.

There is no need far to seek! Fifteen years ago, FC Dynamo Kyiv was offered to put a sixteen-year-old promising Portugal forward on the team. Dynamo coaches considered him to be quite frail. This young football player was Cristiano Ronaldo, the current leader of Juventus, whose legs are insured for the amount of 100 million euros.

Why are we thinking of this all? The reason is that nobody wants to go down in history as a fool who missed, slipped up and blew a rising star. We are a prosperous company and we are interested in success. That’s why we are in a constant search for those who will take leading roles in the teams of our clients tomorrow. Finally, it is a reputational issue for us.

WHAT ABOUT CONFIDENTIALITY?

Imagine Mark Zuckerberg calling Bill Gates to tell him about the novelties he is going to launch on the market. Or Warren Buffet at lunch telling all comers what bonds he is going to sell tomorrow. Or Jose Mourinho announcing the tactics and squad for the final match in the morning press. Sounds ridiculous, doesn’t it? And that’s what we think. Thus, information on people searching for employees, or those seeking for a job, remains our professional secret.
It would be no exaggeration to say that confidentiality is a cornerstone of a headhunter’s profession.

HOW MUCH TIME DO YOU NEED TO FIND THE REQUIRED SPECIALIST?

People are our main value. They matter to us as diamonds for a jeweler, marble for a carver and air for an aviator. There will be no us without them. Thus, we are the foremost interested to find the right person for you. It goes without saying, that it is equally important for us to do our best to recruit a specialist as quick as possible.
