WHY DID WE BUILD THIS PLATFORM?
- To provide companies with the ability to directly, and continuously, identify a diversified group of (a) highly qualified directors, who are free of conflicts, and (b) senior executives, so companies may field the most competitive team.
- To decouple the quality of the search solution from the experience level of the search consultant and his/her research team.
- The search process is a repeatable model, with participants that change every day. The Platform identifies every candidate who meets a Subscriber's search criteria, every time, on demand. The platform is agnostic with respect to candidate identification; no candidate is ever held back or omitted because of "off-limits." Our data, from S&P Global, and a Subscriber's searches are updated nightly so search for directors and senior executives is now a continuous process.

TWO LEVELS OF DATA
COMPLEX DATA MANAGEMENT
Initially identical to Computer Data until "touched" through the Member Portal with proprietary data added by each Member (ethnicity, language abilities, age, geographic preferences, board preferences, work history, reporting relationships, LinkedIn URL, Skills, Knowledge, Experience, etc.) as each Member "perfects" his or her Board profile.
Brought in nightly through the Data Importer with records automatically updated unless "touched" through the Member Portal.
Data discrepancies are resolved through Member and Director Search team.

The Director Search Platform is merit-based and agnostic, and will identify every candidate, on demand, who meets a Subscriber’s search criteria, without any bias, omission, or hold-backs for “off-limits” reasons. The Platform handles all conflict checking as well as candidate affiliations to Board members, two levels deep. Subscribers also can use the Platform for succession planning and benchmarking.
RHR International can assess any candidate who the Platform identifies to help Boards and executive teams ask the right questions about “fit” with the Board and the company. Our Combined Solution provides a powerful outcome to help Boards and companies with their search for top talent.
