Building Better Teams
BIGWIN GROUP MANTRA
We Build Better Teams
The Bigwin Group was created to "re-invent" talent management through creativity and innovation. We offer a wide range of valuable and unique talent management assets to our clients and candidates and challenge the status quo. What we do is not only limited to leadership recruitment, but it also extends to the defining of roles, coaching, strategy, onboarding and retention strategies.
At the Bigwin Group, we know that great businesses are not built alone
◯ SENIOR LEADERSHIP
The Bigwin Group partners have held C-suite positions and understand the kind of talent required for an organization to be successful.
◯ ADVISORY COUNCIL
The Bigwin Group Advisory Council is a diverse group of accomplished business leaders who act as a “brain trust” for the Bigwin Group.
◯ GLOBAL REACH
We have established a global affiliate network of 21 partner offices on five continents.
WHAT IS BIGWIN GROUP’S DISTINCTIVE VALUE?
Bigwin Group assesses talent using as many as three sets of world-class diagnostic tools. The goal is not only to ensure the best candidate fit, but equally, to prevent a costly “mis-hire”.
We believe so fiercely in our work, that we guarantee it. If at the end of the search, we have not met or surpassed all of our commitments to you, we will credit back up to 66% of our fee. (Conditions apply)
Most firms in our industry will guarantee candidate placement for 6 to 12 months. At Bigwin Group we offer an unrivaled two-year placement guarantee.
Talent Scouting is an initiative that Bigwin Group performs to give you a deep insight into the potential candidate pool for any given role.
In 2014, we launched “Sharpen Your Axe” series as a place to explore “hot topics” and a forum to host and stimulate important conversations in the business community.
Senior partners of Bigwin Group lead all aspects of the search process right from spec out to onboarding of the successful candidate.
WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
"So much about who you choose to partner with for an executive search is about the people you get to work with. We have and continue to use Bigwin Group for our executive level searches because of their people as well as their boutique approach to our specific search needs. Hands down their service and candidate detail trumps the large scale executive search firms. We hear it from the candidates we meet as well. They have proven flexible and responsive, but more importantly, they take the time to understand the nuance of each search, our culture and the role itself as well as the hiring manager’s style and expectations. The customized approach and the hands on involvement with the search team we work with always leads to a better result. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them or work with them again."
Erika Van Noort Vice President, Candidate and Employee Experience, Softchoice Corporation
"Hart helped me build out the executive / management team at Kobo. Unlike anyone I’ve ever worked with in the space, the candidates that Hart brought me were almost instant hits (shortening the cycle time to hire execs) and they all have been winners. Pretty tough (impossible) to do that when you are talking about hiring nearly a dozen C- or EVP-level execs."
Mike Serbinis Founder & CEO, LEAGUE Inc.
"The executive search process is challenging. The talent pool is relatively small and when you are looking for the perfect culture fit it can be a very high-risk exercise. Hart understands this. He gets to know the culture of your organization, core values, what makes the leadership team tick and then seeks out some top candidates that have the right expertise and values alignment. Hart treats every hire like he is bringing the candidate into his own business. It is a true partnership."
Sandy McIntosh EVP, People & Culture & Chief Human Resources Officer, TELUS
"There is no lack of choice when it comes to executive search firms…however, Hart and his team were exceptional. They took the time to really understand our business and provided hands-on services of the highest caliber. Bottom line, we would use Hart and the Bigwin Group again for our critical talent management needs."
