Our Process

Knowledge and expertise to recruit ahead of the need. 

At Klein Hersh, we believe relevancy and information are the keys to delivering real value in life sciences and healthcare executive recruiting. Our sharp functional practice focus and subject matter expertise not only keeps us relevant, but enables us to take the pulse of the industry in real time. We continuously gain the actionable information that allows us to proactively assist our clients, identifying and delivering C-level positions and other top talent, at times, even ahead of the need. 

Klein Hersh: Consultative approach delivers the right people at the right time.

From discovery through commercialization, Klein Hersh has delivered high-level, critical hires for some of the world’s leading pharmaceutical, biotech and healthcare companies. To us, life sciences and healthcare executive recruiting is a science, not a transaction. Our process and recruiting methodologies are based on a consultative relationship with our partners. Joined together with our subject matter expertise and constant communications with our network contacts, we match the right people with the right companies – time and again. 

Identifying Leaders

Before the search begins, we work side-by-side with you to conduct a needs analysis and strategic recruitment plan. From there, we can form an ideal position profile and compatibility assessment to ensure we’re on track to find the right candidate before we even take the first step in your search. 

Our subject matter experts have a firm grasp on the dynamics and nuances of the life sciences and healthcare industries, and how they will impact your hiring goals. Supporting our depth of insight is our breadth of reach. We cast a wide net, actively screening candidates across the nation. 

Qualifying Candidates

By identifying strong candidates from the outset, we can provide the fastest, most precise route to your next scientist, C-level executive, or anyone in between. Every candidate we put forward undergoes a detailed qualification assessment to ensure nothing is overlooked. Beyond the requisite qualifications, we also take your needs analysis and position profile into consideration while assessing what motivates our candidate community. 

We assess and “scorecard” each candidate based on their personal, professional and financial goals. By aligning your specific needs with candidate motives, we can more accurately pinpoint and elicit mutually beneficial, lasting relationships.  

Delivering Talent

We go beyond identifying and qualifying candidates to make sure you’re equipped to make the best choice possible. Our support extends to client and candidate interview debriefings, counteroffer consultation, and final offer preparation and closing.

Following Up 

Even after dotted lines are signed, we take the time to make certain all parties involved are satisfied with the outcome. Not only does following-up give us piece of mind that we delivered a job well done, it helps us rectify any loose ends that may have gone unnoticed along the way and further refine our process.
