Recruitment France : key issues
Key issues for your recruitment in France
What makes recruitment in France difficult, and how does GBO overcome critical issues?
-cultural differences: the manager you will recruit in France must be able to communicate and report efficiently with his management abroad. Therefore, we at GBO focus on this particular issue, checking not only the spoken languages, but also the experience and the soft skills in this matter.
-business specificities: in order to find candidates who know your business specificities, a direct approach by a headhunting process is usually necessary. This is the way GBO proceeds in order to succeed in your recruitment France , as detailed in our headhunting expertise
-each region in France is different: France is a very centralized country, and when conducting a new recruitment in France, the GBO consultants adapt each executive search to geographical considerations. Salaries are for example higher in the Paris area, but the number of potential candidates is also much higher. It may be some time more efficient to locate a subsidiary or a new manager outside the Paris area, as long as the communication network is efficient enough.
In any case, before starting a new search GBO always establish a job specification and a search strategy which is communicated to its client. All candidates can then be assessed according to this specification for all criteria: technical competences, management skills if required, experience, network etc. This is a prerequisite to a successful recruitment in France.
Are personality tests necessary for a successful recruitment?
We at GBO do not use personality tests systematically. However, it can be a useful tool in some cases to prepare an interview in order to focus on critical items identified during these tests. More important in our opinion are references taken by former employers, which we take for all short-listed candidates.
We know what a wrong recruitment in France could represent in euros, in time, in energy, and in lost business! Therefore, our unique goal is to secure your recruitments by using confirmed methods and processes and do our best to increase client satisfaction!
