Best Practices for Data Protection

AESC is the global association representing only the highest quality firms in our profession worldwide. After meeting our rigorous membership criteria, our members agree to abide by the AESC Code of Professional Practice. By virtue of selecting an AESC Member, clients can be secure in their choice of consulting firm and can reap the benefits that only a trusted advisor can deliver.

AESC Members always respect any confidential information entrusted to them by clients and candidates. Each of our members respect the confidence placed upon them. These Best Practices improve transparency and accountability, provide some level of mitigation against enforcement actions, and improve AESC member firm standards by establishing best practices.

We encourage the adoption and use of a consistent set of privacy standards for the protection of personal data in the context of executive search and leadership consulting services, with the aim of improving the protection afforded to individuals and fostering trust in the profession as a whole.
