BIGRAM’S Executive Search team is the Polish representative of IIC Partners – one of the world’s largest networks of independent executive search companies. In Poland, just like in over 30 other countries, we focus on the search for top executives.

We offer the following services in support of top management:

EXECUTIVE SEARCH

we implement all projects relying on direct contacts (Direct Search) with people in equivalent positions at other companies, on the basis of target lists drawn up in consultation with the client.

The broad and deep experience of IIC Partners consultants, who have completed more than 300 executive search projects, provides us with the strength of informal networking.

Our Application Database, containing more than 20,000 potential candidates for top management positions, further reinforces the recruitment process. The ability to perform a thorough, multi-faceted and rapid analysis of our resources helps us to quickly direct job proposals to the right candidates.

Management Audit

It is a service that assesses the competencies of managers and their capacity to meet their goals, especially in an environment of changes arising from acquisitions, mergers or restructuring.

The combined experience of psychological consultants, methodologists (the BIGRAM S.A. Development and Assessment Department) and recruitment consultants (IIC Partners), who are strongly established in the business, allows us to make sound judgments and valuable recommendations.

TARGETED HEAD HUNTING

In addition, we take on very difficult recruitment projects in search of managers characterised by unique competencies, from narrow and very specific target groups.

Communicating changes

Communication plays a key role in the change process. Change can lead to the loss of a sense of security and spark fear of an uncertain future, followed by a drop in the motivation of the people who remain within the organisation. This makes communication process planning and management vital. Proper communication supports the achievement of company business objectives and reduces resistance to change, thus facilitating change implementation.

 

Our activities include:

  • Preparation of the scope and form of announcements
  • Development of a communication schedule
  • Supporting an organisation in the change communication process
  • Workshops for managers on communicating difficult decisions/changes

 

BIGRAM supports managers through special workshops on communicating difficult decisions. The workshops enable the managers to learn how to communicate the process and the decisions made in a consistent manner.

 

Outplacement offered by the company to its employees also requires effective communication – e.g. an information campaign encouraging employees to participate in the programme. BIGRAM consultants offer the client their advice and support in the preparation of information materials and persuading employees to take advantage of the outplacement programme.
