The 4i Process

The 4i Process ensures the highest quality when filling positions

The 4i Process® draws on over 20 years of experience in executive search. With the help of our four central process steps, we ensure a consistently high quality of the placements.

The consultants at Hager Unternehmensberatung identify the most promising candidates, check their motivation to change, qualify their suitability in terms of content and personality and navigate both candidates and clients through the entire process in a target-oriented manner.

In this way we ensure that vacancies are filled precisely and sustainably.

identify
Even the very first step in the selection process is decisive for success. Using a sophisticated profile, we develop the interdisciplinary search strategy, the search fields and the selection criteria. In this way, we identify the most promising candidates.

motivate
We attach great importance to determining the candidates’ individual motives for change. It is important to clarify the extent to which the position under discussion represents a meaningful next step for all participants. It goes without saying that our experts are extremely discreet when it comes to direct contact.

qualify
The next step is further qualification on the basis of individual competencies. We distinguish between subject-related and personality-related competencies and determine these with the help of a multistage interview process. These meaningful candidate profiles form the basis for the shortlist.

navigate
Intensive process support for both clients and candidates ensures that the entire process runs smoothly. In addition to project management, this also includes feedback loops, sparring discussions and a proactive exchange throughout the process.
