“The Kaye/Bassman Healthcare Team is extremely capable and handled one the largest accounts in the Dallas office. They had excellent client relationships and worked to deliver even the toughest of skills. The team was friendly, thoughtful, and respectful of coworkers.”
“Elaine was head and shoulders above the other recruiters I worked with this interview season in several important ways. She is intelligent, curious, thorough, insightful, and knowledgeable. She had personally met the leadership and she had seen the facility with her own eyes. She asked probing questions that compelled me to articulate my rationale for the career decisions I had made so far. She made incredibly astute inferences about the way I think based on dry biographical data. I found her to be a gifted observer, a good listener, and a real student of human psychology. I felt prepared for many of her questions, but I remember struggling with a few that cut to the core of my convictions and assumptions. It was an invaluable exercise. It made me a better and more confident interviewee. That initial experience shaped my expectations for the rest of the interview trail, but I’m afraid everybody else fell woefully short.”
“Recruiting great faculty integral to having a successful academic Department of Surgery. With that in mind we made an arrangement to work with Elaine Auerbach from Kaye/Bassman Associates to assist us in hiring additional faculty with Trauma/Critical Care and Burn Surgery expertise for Upstate University Hospital. Elaine’s ability to identify and recruit helped us to meet critical work force issues we were facing in a timely fashion.”
“In my position as Department Chair of Surgery at the Nemours Children’s Clinic, I learned about Eric through his successful recruitment of two pediatric neurosurgeons at the local Children’s hospital. As we were unsuccessful with a former recruiting firm, we reached out to Mr. Dickerson to see if he can assist in a successful recruitment of several key surgical areas in our organization. I was immediately impressed with Mr. Dickerson in his organized approach and ambitious attitude in doing what was necessary to get the job done. We have been very pleased with Eric and he has been successful in filling many of our positions. We continue to work with him currently on additional faculty needs. ”
“[This] was a new experience for me to work with a search firm. With that said, as chair of the search committee the experience was as stress-free as possible for me at the busiest time in our semester! I was pleased and relieved to be able to easily contact you and receive a rapid response to my questions/concerns – I was truly impressed with your responsiveness. I never felt that my questions were not appropriate and they were answered thoroughly, professionally and respectfully. I appreciated the timely delivery of documents needed for the search and the follow-up from you after each interview coupled with frequent check-ins to inquire if we were needing any further information. I very much appreciated the freedom and space to talk with you honestly and openly about the candidates and the process itself and that you sought clarification when needed to understand our unique needs and process. In the future if our department has a need to hire a search firm, I guarantee that your name and company will be at the top of the list. Thank you for all you did to make the experience a positive one.”
“Overall I would say I was very pleased with [Kaye/Bassman Academic Medicine]. I wanted to approach the task as a close relationship, and by setting up weekly sessions throughout the process to see where we all stood helped keep the search top of mind for both parties, which ensured getting the right person for the position. Some of the most beneficial things included the pre-work that the team did by getting a good sense of the important elements of who we were looking for, not just credentials and experience, but also personal strengths, motivations, and opportunities for improvement. The profiles you created based off these conversations were some of the most valuable tools much more tailored for this search. This process allowed us the opportunity to get the right “person on the bus” for this position and avoided presenting candidates to me that were not worth my time reviewing.”
