Founder and Chief Sourcing Strategist
Conni LaDouceur, one of the most respected authorities on sourcing strategies for talent acquisition and competitive intelligence gathering, delivers unsurpassed ROI via research, sourcing, Search/Research Success by ExecuQuest training and consulting to companies worldwide. As Founder and Chief Sourcing Strategist of ExecuQuest Corp., her passion for the hunt has led her valued clients to top-notch hiring through multiple years of challenging labor and financial market conditions for over 25 years.
Previously with Heidrick & Struggles, Inc., Conni challenges identifying the most qualified talent via her direct, ethical telephone sourcing. These strategic tools, effective for immediate direct hiring and for successful talent pipelining, enable recruiting managers to hold their recruiters accountable to their goals. In an era of ‘silver bullet’ social networks and over-relied upon search strings, Conni and her team consistently deliver qualified, otherwise-unidentifiable talent via efficient cold-calling, identifying the heads-down, doing-their-jobs, gainfully employed, truly passive qualified talent.
Think you have a challenging or impossible position to fill? Conni will demonstrate the “how-to’s” of ethical, efficient, effective telephone talent identification for recruiting, finding the talent that no one can find online. She will identify on-target talent by telephone from the hiring managers’ most desirable target companies: hire-ready candidates and she will play the recorded calls (recorded off-site) in which she has obtained the names, titles, phone numbers, e-mail address and reporting relationships of the exact people who meet the position descriptions. What positions have been open the longest? What hiring managers are suffering the most? What is the enterprise’s cost of filling these roles compared to the cost of vacancies? Her ethical, direct techniques are effective in all industries, all functions, and at all levels worldwide and demonstrate that original telephone research delivers the added ROI your company seeks. Think you have a challenging or impossible position to fill? Let’s challenge that!
