What Makes the Jordan Search Model Unique?

When healthcare organizations come to Jordan Search Consultants for recruitment solutions, one of the first questions they ask is if we operate under a retained or contingency model. Considering these are the two most highly-publicized search models, they are often surprised when our answer is, “it is not that simple.” After all, recruitment must be customized; one size does not fit all.

Increasingly, research supports that a flexible partnership between an organization and a search firm provides the most competitive advantages. That’s why we collaborate with our clients to customize a service offering that works with your internal resources to further your recruitment goals. We believe that delivering and retaining top talent doesn’t fit into recruitment model boxes. The methodology differs based on the position, the organization, internal resources, and more.


Next, organizations want certainty. Specifically, they ask about a placement guarantee.


There is never a “guarantee” of placement because successful recruitment is dependent on a myriad of factors, especially in the ever-changing healthcare environment. Jordan Search Consultants is proud of our 99.3% placement rate. And, we are so confident in our behavioral interviewing techniques that if your recruited employee leaves after less than a year of working for your organization, we’ll conduct a search to replace them at no cost.


You see, what makes the Jordan Search model unique is that we’re dedicated to more than position fulfillment. We know that strategic recruitment directly affects your organization’s revenue, reputation, and retention rate of staff—and that a function so critical to organizational success cannot be left to chance. That’s why our primary goal is to optimize the process and positively impact your bottom line.


How do we do it? We’re glad you asked.
