Understand the Executive Search Landscape
The cost of a wrong executive hire can result in staggering losses for a company. When hiring executive and board level positions, business leaders can take one of three general approaches to hiring executive level personnel: executive search consulting, contingent recruiters, or in-house recruiting.
While executive search consulting and contingent recruiting are often thought of interchangeably, they differ greatly in their methodology, target assignments and overall value for both clients and candidates.
The best executive search firms partner with clients, providing deep expertise in the industries, functional roles and geographies in which their clients operate.
