“Edenstone Homes is gearing up to the next stage of our development, with a huge target for growth in the next 5 years.
At the beginning of 2020, we called Human Capital Group (HCG) to help us identify a Senior Board Member who could help us achieve our goals of growing to a 3-5 region business.
The director, Gerard Ball, listened to what we wanted, how we wanted to achieve it and consulted with us on the best way forward. This was not Gerard simply taking down a list of wants and needs, but a real consultation making us think hard about what we are looking for and challenging us and our expectations.
HCG did everything that their LTAS system promised. They delivered a long-list of candidates within 24 hours, we had access to the list and could see clearly who was being approached and the outcome of the approach. HCG had covered well over 80% of the people listed and 100% of the prime targets.
Within 2 weeks a short-list of some exceptional candidates was delivered, we interviewed them and would have been very happy to engage every one of them. Unfortunately, COVID happened and our plans had to be put on hold.
However, HCG stayed in contact advising us of market conditions and an exceptional individual emerged during the pandemic who had already achieved a big part of our goals for another company, with the ideal set of skills and personality we were very keen to move forward but still had the issue of the pandemic. HCG made a number of suggestions on how we could make it happen in a way whereby both parties would be happy. We’re happy to say that the individual joined us on an initial consultancy basis, which we have now made permanent.”
