Cornerstone International Group: Global Recruiter Launches Service To Non-Profits
A new specialization group focused on Non-Profit organizations has been launched by global recruiter Cornerstone International Group.
Cornerstone, a retained executive search organization with 58 member offices in 36 countries, will concentrate its new service first in North America to meet market opportunities.
Non-Profit companies often face distinct challenges recruiting senior level leaders, ranging from limited budgets to a shortage of experience in assessing and evaluating talent. Cornerstone’s new specialist team is focused on custom solutions to address these needs.
“Step one for any non-profit is to work with a Retained Search firm,” says Linda Gray, Senior Vice President, Executive Search at Cornerstone Cleveland, who leads the specialist group.
“Retained search offers a unique and custom approach to securing top talent by becoming a true extension of the organization through in-depth understanding of the motivational, cultural and organizational “fit” required for long-term success of the chosen candidate.”
Servicing the needs of non-profits is a natural specialization for Cornerstone, says President Larry Shoemaker of Atlanta.
“Non-profits represent the third largest workforce in the U.S., behind retail and manufacturing,” says Shoemaker. “They are the recipients of over $390 billion in annual charitable giving and most of these organizations fit into the target range of our member offices.”
