Heidrick & Struggles and its predecessors have been a leadership advisor for nearly 60 years. The Company helps its clients build leadership teams by facilitating the recruitment, management and deployment of senior executives. Focusing on top-level services it offers several advantages that include access to and influence with key decision makers, increased potential for recurring search and consulting engagements, higher fees per search, enhanced brand visibility, and a leveraged global footprint, which create added barriers to entry for potential competitors. The Company's search process typically consists of the following steps: Analyze the client's business needs in order to understand its organizational structure, relationships, and culture; determine the required set of skills for the position; define the required experience; and identify the other characteristics desired of the successful candidate; Select, contact, interview and evaluate candidates on the basis of experience and potential cultural fit with the client organization; Present confidential written reports on the candidates who potentially fit the position specification; Schedule a mutually convenient meeting between the client and each candidate; Complete references on the final candidate selected by the client; and Assist the client in structuring the compensation package and supporting the successful candidate's integration into the client team. The Company's consulting services, which is currently less than 10% of its net revenue, includes succession planning, executive assessment, talent retention management, executive development, transition consulting for newly appointed executives, and mergers and acquisitions human capital integration consulting. The Company provides its executive search services on a retained basis, recruiting senior executives whose first year base salary and bonus averaged approximately $338,700 in 2011 on a worldwide basis. The Company's clients include the following: Fortune 1000 companies; Major non-U.S. companies; Middle market and emerging growth companies; Governmental, higher education and not-for-profit organizations; and other private and public entities. The Company's direct competition comes from four established retained executive search firms that conduct searches mainly for the senior-level positions within an organization. In particular, its competitors include Egon Zehnder International, Korn/Ferry International, Russell Reynolds Associates, Inc. and Spencer Stuart & Associates. It also faces competition from Internet-based firms and smaller boutiques that specialize in certain regional markets or industry segments.
