When companies look to fill C suite or leadership positions, they tend to look for talent in-house or attempt to conduct the entire recruitment process on their own. While this may have some advantages, studies indicate that an organization may not have hired the most qualified person for the job. For one, the most qualified candidate may not be available through standard recruitment agencies or may not even have applied for the potential vacancy. The organization must therefore conduct a comprehensive and research-based study of who fits the bill; but this is not easy.
A survey by the Corporate Executive Board suggests that one in five hires in Executive Search doesn’t fit the bill, and companies actually regret the final decision. The key to success in executive search is to assess a candidate’s background thoroughly; in the context of the person’s capabilities, as well as the companies in which these have been seen. This requires thorough research which traditional recruitment agencies may not do or don’t have the required wherewithal for. Moreover, traditional headhunters may not know the industry in which your organization operates, and so identifying and hiring the right candidate may not give the right results. In addition, enhancing leadership diversity or looking for rare leadership skills may not be found through traditional approaches. In today’s data-driven world, focused talent research can help make the process of Executive Search successful; especially in locating talent that lies just below the radar and which an organization may not have the resources to find.
