In order to find high-level candidates to fill key positions, your human resources team must sometimes deal with a recruiter working for a recruitment firm. But be careful: before signing the service agreement, make sure the recruiter is a member of the Ordre des conseillers en ressources humaines agréés. Here’s why. 


The advantages of using a recruiter who is a member of a professional association

Because the consulting profession can be practiced without membership in a professional association, some “free agents” receive no training. As a result, some companies have had bad experiences with their recruiters’ lack of professional ethics. Here are the benefits of working with a consultant recruiter who is a member in good standing of the CRHA Order:

Supervision, control mechanisms and ongoing training 
Recruiters who are members of the Ordre des conseillers en ressources humaines agréés (CHRA) are bound by a code of ethics. They are not just efficient “headhunters” who recruit experienced managers, general managers and executives. The supervision they receive from the professional order guarantees you a quality service that respects the standards of the profession.    

By hiring a recruiter who is a member of the Ordre des CRHA, you can be assured that the recruiter will follow the practice procedures as outlined in the code of ethics. This code is also a reference tool for human resources departments that use the services of recruiters. 

In addition, professional audits conducted by representatives of the Ordre des CRHA monitor the following points: compliance with deadlines for completing the mandate, the quality of the candidates proposed, and the thoroughness of the follow-up with the candidates and the client company. Ongoing training also allows members to keep their knowledge up to date. 

Respect of professional secrecy 
For companies, the fact that the recruiter is certified by the Ordre des CRHA is a guarantee that he or she will respect professional secrecy. Membership in a professional liability insurance plan is mandatory for members, which ensures that they will be able to answer financially for their actions in the event of a leak of confidential information. 

Professional ethics 
In the exclusivity contract signed with the certified recruiter, you will find a description of the recruiter’s duties and work environment, the standards of business ethics that will be respected, the fees, the schedule and the service guarantee.  

Before accepting a mandate and to maintain ethical practices, the consultant recruiter will take the time to learn about your company’s situation and its business strategies, and will then objectively evaluate your recruitment needs. He or she will perform a rigorous analysis of the mandate you propose, taking into account the following points: 

– Position requirements, skill set desired and your expectations in
terms of results;
– Compensation offered;
– Opportunities for advancement;
– Occupational risk of the position;
– Challenges presented;
– Reputation and health of your company;
– Geographic location;
– Reasons for the departure of the previous candidate;
– Company values (so that proposed candidates can meet them).

The certified recruiter will be able to advise you on the most beneficial recruitment strategies for your company.
