What are the deliverables?

In all cases, Summit provides a slate of quality candidates that are pre-screened based on the criteria you set forth.  In addition, clients are provided with detailed reports containing competitive intelligence that has been gleaned from the marketplace. This report can be used for future sourcing as well.

At Summit, we provide transparency in all our work.  At any point in the search, we will provide reports of the work trail (individuals we have contacted and any information we have learned from the marketplace).

Do you use an applicant tracking system?

Yes, we use an applicant tracking system that enables us to be well-organized during the process.  The system tracks EEO data and we can create reports for you that contain the specifics you need for reporting purposes.

Why does transparency matter?

Transparency in the search process means that we provide you with data at any point during or after the project.  We are committed to partnering with clients and sharing candidate and market data openly. You will know exactly how your search dollars are being spent.

Who will be managing and sourcing my research project?

Each search is co-led by our President, Carrie Coward, and a lead search consultant.

Can you ensure a diverse slate of candidates?

We can ensure that we are talking to individuals who are doing or are qualified to do the job.  Our placement stats demonstrate an impressive record of diverse placements; however, the process and the candidate slate is driven by demographics by job type, geography, and marketplace. We work diligently to create sourcing plans that include diversity outreach strategies.  We track this work and share the data with you.

Do you have a defined geographical scope?

Summit works with companies throughout the US and Canada.  Many of the companies we work with have international locations.  Summit has physical offices in North Carolina, New York, Colorado, and California.

Are there other services you provide in addition to recruiting?

We transfer our time-tested research skills and conduct primary research for clients to uncover key competitive information in their respective markets.
