InterSearch Worldwide, a leading global network in the executive search field, just revealed its updated corporate logo and new website.

The new logo was designed by Avant Design and Marketing Inc, Illinois, USA and was chosen from a shortlist of proposed designs by InterSearch Worldwide's General Assembly during the organization's recent annual conference in Budapest.

InterSearch is quite a powerful name describing our core business in an excellent way, and we want our logo to give an instant recognition of what we successfully do in more than 40 countries worldwide.  The old logo served us well for two decades but today we are implementing new ideas and strategies that need to be represented in our global and local branding. A clean and easy to read logo supports the image of InterSearch – an international organization represented by strong local partners, working in an integrated and efficient manner in order to offer the highest quality of services to our clients.  Our brand is currently registered in over 60 countries”  said Patricia Epperlein, Chairwoman of InterSearch Worldwide.

InterSearch's global website, www.intersearch.org, also underwent a major redesign in order to be in line with the contemporary brand image projected by the new logo. InterSearch's US partner, Cook Associates, played a significant role in the website's redesign. “Our website is our 24/hour online business shop which should reflect InterSearch’s identity and values: a dynamic and entrepreneurial organisation ranked among the top international executive search firms, with international approach and expertise as well as an impeccable local reputation allowing us to act as a trusted extension of our clients said Sarah Barnes, Director Marketing Communication at Cook Associates.

All InterSearch partners will adopt the new logo by the next InterSearch Annual Conference and General Assembly, to be held in Marseilles, France, in May 2010.

InterSearch Worldwide is a global network of search firms consistently ranked amongst the largest retained executive search practices in the world by Executive Recruiter News and search-consult magazines. InterSearch is currently represented in more than 40 countries, staffed by local professionals selected for their experience and reputation in their own markets and their ability to operate internationally.

Roger Piepenstock joins Amnis’ Lean team

Roger Piepenstock has joined the quality, innovation and productivity organisation Amnis to lead their Lean Team within the Local Government and Health sectors.

Piepenstock is a chief executive with extensive experience in Lean, business development, strategic planning and marketing. His experience includes the introduction of transformational change, Lean and similar initiatives, both in the UK and overseas and he has established efficient businesses around the world.

In addition to managing and leading organisations and introducing transformational change, he has supported the development of major public programmes aimed at transforming a wide range of industrial sectors.

A former pupil of Harrow School, he holds an MBA (from American International University of London). For the last ten years he has been a member of the Board of Made in London and, among other things, is a veteran of the Honourable Artillery Company.

Commenting on his joining Amnis’ Local Government & Health team, Piepenstock said: “I am delighted to be working again with Amnis’ managing director, Mark Eaton.

“Having delivered Lean to a number of organisations over the last 18 years - including being Chairman of the Manufacturing Advisory Service for London who were introducing Lean to London based Manufacturers – I’m impressed with the Amnis methodology. Unlike some other firms offering Lean support, Amnis really does transfer the skills and techniques to it customers.

“In my experience, this is the only way to make Lean programmes successful in the long term. Many Lean programmes fail because the consultants who have been driving them have finished their contract. Successful implementations are, usually, where the skills and knowledge have been transferred to the organisation and the philosophy becomes part of the culture.

“I’m impressed by my team’s experience and commitment and I’m glad to be part of such a dynamic organisation,” he added.

Mark Eaton, managing director of Amnis, commented: “It is rare to find someone of Roger’s calibre and experience who is able to share it so willingly and with such enthusiasm. We’re delighted that Roger has joined Amnis – and, we believe our clients will be too.”

  •  Search press releases and news aggregators to identify and research senior executives 
  •  Search corporate websites and business information sites for information on target companies, 
  •  Use Google to find more candidates in social networks, and 
  •  Track new appointments and resignations at your key clients. 
 All of these techniques will be taught in a way which will enable you to use them immediately – for free!

Recruiter Coaching by Bill Radin

Why You Should Hire a Coachby Bill Radin

Dear Fellow Recruiter:

Are you falling short of your full potential? Failing to "connect" with your candidates and employers? Having trouble making placements—or worse, making them stick?

If so, I can help. For a limited time, I'll be accepting new recruiters, owners and managers for my private coaching services. Whether you work alone or with a group, I can improve your productivity—and your income.

A World-Wide Lifeline
No matter where you live, I can serve as your mentor, trainer and advisor. I'll answer your questions, help you set goals and even role-play your trickiest situations.

Through the magic of videoconferencing, we can work together to improve your skills, boost your confidence and manage your time more efficiently. As a result, you'll:

Market your services with more authority;
Find opportunities that other recruiters can't;
Recruit higher quality candidates;
Increase your level of activity; and
Make more placements.

The Benefits of Private Coaching 

If you think about it, there's a successful coach behind nearly every top performer. Ask yourself: How successful would Olympic skiers, swimmers or hockey teams be without their coaches? 

Even if you already have a talented manager or supervisor, an objective, experienced coach can help you get better results. That's why top high-school students hire tutors to improve their grades and college-entrance test scores. In the war for academic talent, only the best and the brightest will make the cut.

Call Me Today
And Save Big
Together, we can design a program that fits your needs. And for a limited time, you'll receive my private coaching for only $195.00 per hour
—a huge, $100.00 discount from my standard coaching fee. 

Or, for an even bigger savings, you can purchase 4 hours of training for only $595.00 and save a whopping $585.00!

Don't delay—
call me today at (513) 624-7501 or visit me online at www.billradin.com/recruiter_coaching.htm. It could be the best investment you'll ever make.

Winning Strategies for Recruiters

EBS became member of AIMS International

Helen Volska, FCCA and Managing Partner and Director at EBS Ukraine, is positive about providing even more value to the clients by joining AIMS International 
Kiev, Ukraine – In March 2010, EBS became member of AIMS International, one of the largest Executive Search Firms in the world.

“Joining AIMS International was as much of a decision for EBS as for our clients” stated Helen Volska, after being asked why they joined the international partnership. Going further into detail, she stated that EBS took this opportunity to participate in an international knowledge and skills exchange, which will help increase the value which EBS as an HR and Executive Search Company is able to deliver to its clients. This is an ambitious goal, bearing in mind that EBS has already been successfully providing HR and Executive Search Services to national and international clients for years. But, Helen is sure that the existing AIMS International Global Practice Teams will deliver their valuable support to their new partner in the Ukraine, and based on this knowledge EBS will improve.

Helen wants to implement the international standards as soon as possible, so that EBS will be able to deliver the same high quality services and to show a true single global face to the clients.
