Executive search in consumer sectors has been around for years, but with more demand than supply in the executive sector, candidates are being more selective about future employers.

In a recent study of the top ten issues for CEO’s completed by Business Week, companies have had to adopt a revised recruitment strategy for C-level executives as employers in the sector are competing for talent when there is a shortage of candidates:

“There’s been a shift in mindset and companies are placing a higher importance on finding business leaders whose visions and values are in line with the company’s, as opposed to finding employees with a laundry list of accolades.

With a 50% chance of new C-Level executives leaving after 12 months, it’s now more important to get the executive search process right as the market is changing with more competition for the right c-level appointment.”

Testing and on-boarding

On-boarding – Research indicates that 50% of all new hires at executive level fail within the first 18 months. Given the high cost of executive derailment more organisations recognise the need for a well thought out and structured induction. An onboarding coach can be instrumental in helping new executives to prepare a robust plan for transitioning successfully, establishing credibility and delivering those crucial early wins. Successful onboarding results in accelerating the executive’s assimilation into the company and reduces the time it takes for them to contribute at the expected performance level. It has also been shown to increase engagement and retention of key talent.
