Is it possible to combine headhunting and ethics?

We are committed headhunters, but in concrete terms, what are these commitments?

In order to detail and share them, we are currently drafting a Responsible Headhunting Charter. It serves as an ethical reference framework within @Mutual Benefits and in our relations with our stakeholders (clients, candidates, headhunters, ecosystem).

And as in any charter, we share our commitments. Far from being values plastered on a pretty sign, they are our compass.

The first one? Honesty 🗣

Honesty towards oneself and others, a pillar of integrity, strengthens us, individually and collectively, and is the cement of our cooperation. We are committed to it and expect it to be reciprocated in our partnership relations.

Saying what we do and doing what we say, we challenge ourselves and work daily to put into practice NVC, the 5 Toltec Agreements and collective intelligence.

🔍 A concrete example of this value applied recently at Mutual Benefits?

At all stages of our activity, whether we are a hunter, a candidate or a client, honesty is a cocktail whose main ingredients are: knowing what we want, knowing our strengths and limits, recognising our mistakes, evaluating our risk, sharing our doubts, communicating by inviting both our intellect and our emotions, asking for feedback, putting our ego at a distance, recognising our part and that of others in everything we do.

It's a fact: honesty is one of the qualities that really makes the difference between candidates at MutualBenefits. In order to make honesty a cornerstone of our dealings with our clients, our business model is designed to eliminate a harmful bias in the relationship between hunters and clients: what do you think this bias is?
