Since 2001 Sanderson McLeod has been finding the fit for companies and candidates. We understand that a candidate is not looking for a job. They are looking for an opportunity. We also understand that emerging companies are looking for talent that can challenge a path while being a big part in achieving a successful goal.
FINDING THE FIT
Finding the fit is more than finding someone that can do the job. It is about aligning culture and vision. For the company it is about finding the person that believes in the mission, will relentlessly work to achieve the plan, and can collaborate with others seamlessly. For the candidate it is about finding the company that they can believe in, and that will place a high level in trust and value to what they are bringing to the table.
Finding the fit does not mean finding the easiest path to resistance. The best companies do not look for leaders that unquestionably toe the line. Similarly the best talent does not look to land with a company where the ideas they bring to the table are not challenged; great CEO’s need Chief Medical Officers that will make it clear how a proposed clinical strategy can help or hurt the company and great CMO’s need to know how to collaborate even though their medical training has trained them to not ask for help.
The most adventurous emerging companies are the ones that are solving a problem in a new way. Some in the medical device sector would say they are “building new modalities of therapy” that will replace standards of care. Investors in biotech might say their company has a “first in class therapy”.
However you define an emerging company, there is one thing they most all of them share in common: getting to market fast on a limited budget.
Subsequently these companies need employees that understand the sense of urgency and thrive in that type of environment; an environment that can feel like a roller coaster ride, up one day and down the next.
Sanderson McLeod has been working with emerging companies since 2001. We understand the passion that entrepreneurs have for their companies. We have seen what it takes to travel around the country raising capital to fund a dream. And we know that emerging companies do not have the luxury of hiring the wrong person.
