There are five cornerstones to our success:
Our Bilingual/Bicultural People
All of our associates are fully bilingual and bicultural (English & Spanish) and are absolutely the best trained in our industry. They are all Certified Personnel Consultants and have an average tenure of nearly 10 years. They all have conducted extensive business in Latin America and have lived in Mexico and the United States.
Our Specialist Approach
We differentiate ourselves from other search firms by offering a specialist approach by specializing in specific industry sectors, functional areas and geographic locations (Mexico, South America, United States…). Each of our search associates specializes in a particular function, for example sales, accounting, or manufacturing. They learn the language, intricacies and salary structure of their specialty search practice. Most importantly, they develop key contacts in these fields to find the right talent for our clients. Our clients know that a BIP search associate is a specialist who understands their needs and is an expert in identifying talented passive professionals who might not otherwise come to their attention. Our associates ensure that the candidate is a perfect fit. We become your trusted advisor and in doing so provide valuable market intelligence to our clients, and advice on benefits, compensation, and hiring practices. This provides a unique advantage to our clients particularly in countries like Mexico Brazil, and Argentina.
We also provide comprehensive human capital solutions to our clients through our sister company, Challenger Gray & Christmas and our acclaimed specialist team of bilingual Certified Outplacement Career Coaches and Master Certified Executive Coaches focused on the Mexican and Latin American region.
