Many of the CEOs, Managing Directors and Business Owners that we have worked with have faced a number of scenarios where they need to recruit a senior leader or executive for their business. Clients typically:
- Are in a period of growth or in a fast moving business transformation and change program, where new executive skill or diversity of skill is required in the boardroom.
- Have a senior leader or executive who is exiting their business unexpectedly and a potential lack of a succession plan leaves a key executive role vacant.
- Are in an acquisitive or disposal state where specialist skills are required on an integration project.
- Are needing to replace a key senior leader who is under performing and negatively affecting business operations.
In order to address these situations, Clients face a plethora of problems when seeking to attract, recruit and retain Top Executive Leaders that will provide competitive advantage and deliver outstanding results for their businesses.
Firstly, they don’t have time to look for executive candidates particularly when they are in a period of growth and/or in a fast paced and demanding operating environment with little time to spare.
Secondly, they are not quite sure where to look that will allow them access to the ‘complete market’ of candidates in a timely, cost effective and efficient approach.
Thirdly, they are not quite sure the best approach which will attract the right candidates and how to communicate their brand, their Employee Value Proposition and what they are about as a company.
Fourthly, they are not quite sure how to structure a suitable package which will attract, recruit and more importantly retain the right candidate for the longer term, without causing an imbalance in their current pay structure.
Are you or your company struggling to attract Top Leadership candidates for your business? Are you put off by what you perceive to be an ‘out of reach’ executive search service due to cost? Do you struggle to retain executives and find that their tenure with you is fairly short? Have you felt disappointed with high fees and lacklustre results or worse, having paid fees only to reach the conclusion of an executive search to find you have no candidate to show for your investment?
