The Process

Recruitment and selection process steps

Our rigorous seven-step process, combined with open and honest communication, has enabled us to develop long-lasting partnerships with all of our clients and candidates.

  • 01
  • Developing the mandate

    When we first meet with clients, we take the opportunity to get a feel for the organization’s culture, to understand the nature of the position to be filled and to clarify the required qualifications and key competencies. After this meeting, we put together a job description and list of key responsibilities and share it with potential candidates.

  • 02
  • Methodology and search strategy

    For each mandate entrusted to us, we plan a strategy to search for and identify relevant applications in the job market. Our approach is based on identifying candidates using multiple technologies, our database and our extensive professional networks in all corporate functions.

  • 03
  • Making contact

    A successful recruiting effort attracts the right candidates during the selection process and does a good job of representing your brand as an employer. We know our clients and we know the challenges of the positions. We communicate these so as to attract the best resources during the evaluation stage. We take a direct and confidential approach, one that is of the highest professionalism and that focuses on the candidate. Throughout this crucial step, we send our clients weekly market intelligence reports and updates on how the search is going.

  • 04
  • Evaluating candidates

    We hold interviews that are professional, confidential and behavioural-based for all candidates under consideration. It is important to know what you seek, but also to be able to predict success.

  • 05
  • Presenting the list of candidates

    We recommend the best available candidates and meet with clients to discuss the profiles. We include curriculum vitae along with an evaluation of the candidates, based on the required and evaluated competencies.

  • 06
  • Coordinating logistics and negotiating salary

    We coordinate the logistics with our clients. To keep candidates active and engaged during the process and to support you, we do the following:

    • Plan client interviews
    • Check professional references
    • Coach and provide constructive feedback for candidates who are not hired
    • Administer a psychometric test to finalists
    • Negotiate salary and advise on compensation
  • 07
  • Orientation and post-hiring follow-up

    We offer orientation coaching for the selected candidate and post-hiring follow-up with our client for the first six months after hiring. Our goal is to set up everything to ensure that each person hired is a success story.


Being involved with our clients and our community is one of our fundamental values. Premium Ressources humaines believes that every one of us can have an impact and improve society. That’s why for each mandate we complete, we set aside a certain amount of money and, at the end of the year, we present this money to selected organizations or foundations on behalf of our partners and ourselves.
