RSI Follows a Proven Search Process

As an established recruitment firm, we know that a successful journey always begins with a plan. In our case, the search and recruitment plan relies upon a tried-and-tested template consisting of 25 steps. Time and again, this finely tuned process has led to satisfying long-term hires and boundless growth and success for our clients. Our approach utilizes a unique blend of assessments — including background and reference checks as well as behavior-based tests and interviews — to measure the quality of each candidate.

During our search process, we’re on the lookout for specific skills that set candidates apart. Successful manufacturing executives will embody characteristics such as:

  • Strong leadership capabilities
  • A strategic mindset to minimize and manage risk
  • Efficient work behavior
  • A detail-oriented and analytical work ethic
  • The ability to work independently and collaboratively
  • Exceptional project management and decision-making abilities

At the heart of our process are the people involved. Our team strives to work together as a community, treating each candidate and client with respect, patience and dedication. Throughout our tailored 25-step recruitment plan, you’ll experience a regular set of touchpoints, enhancing transparency and ensuring every party stays in the loop. We welcome feedback and questions, and we work to react as quickly and effectively as possible from the first step to the last.
