DRi’s executive search process is designed to ensure that our clients and candidates are positioned to work effectively together from day one. But the early days of working together require a great deal of coordination to learn a new a set of expectations, processes, personal styles, and more. For the most senior positions, this process can be just as daunting as finding the right candidate—and to steward the resources you’ve invested in the hire, it needs to go well.
DRi applies its comprehensive knowledge of non-profit operations to the onboarding process. We work with leaders to ensure that they not only acquire knowledge, but even more importantly build relationships, in their opening days. That may require working with Board members, executive leadership teams, volunteers, donors, partners, and members. Engaging such critical stakeholders is a routine part of DRi’s work. We marshal our expertise and resources to prioritize the most important activities, streamline logistical processes, and monitor results and make changes in real time.
