A lengthy, inflexible hiring process run by a bloated executive search firm, charging you 6 figures without any guarantee of a successful outcome...
Or the wild-west of agency recruitment, where multiple recruiters throw CV's at you on a no-win-no-fee basis in the hope that something will stick.
Stuck between a rock and a pile of shit.
Sometimes, things worked out. You got the person you wanted, regardless of the pain you felt along the way.
But times have changed, and those methods are producing less and less fruit.
'Little black book' executive search only gives a snapshot of the talent pool and kills any chance you have of tackling your diversity problem. And the less said about the 'spray and pray' agency approach, the better.
On the one hand, the best leaders have never been easier to access (thanks, LinkedIn) But because of that, it also means they've never been harder to meaningfully engage with.
To attract the very best, you need to cut above the noise and do something different. That's where we come in.
