Hiring graduates of the best universities…just became a bit less complicated

It is impossible for people to remain unbiased about who is the best at anything; do you agree? Nonetheless, we all gravitate to rankings and often put stock in them; particularly if the group compiling the ranking does a credible job. Today’s LinkedIn list of “best universities” is based upon where their graduates are actually working.

Attracting the right leaders requires the right hiring approach

 

 

China Trip 2014 671

Attracting the right senior level leadership is the most important and challenging task for your organization…
Are you taking the right approach?

• Are you feeling frustrated by the results of your current hiring efforts?
• Are some of the best people being attracted by your toughest competitors?
• Have you tried to develop a relationship with a reputable search firm?

What works and what doesn’t work is always the acid test for any task.
Why waste time pursuing aims with the wrong tools or wrong methodologies?

5/2/14 Unemployment Report …and senior level hiring opportunities

 

 

IMG_1065The news out of Washington DC today relative to the unemployment rate is very positive; 6.3% is the lowest unemployment rate in years and indicative of an increasingly stronger economy.

Our firm conducts senior level search assignments for universities and companies that are focused on research and innovation.   As the economy continues to accelerate we expect our phones to be ringing more frequently from clients who need us to help them attract the right leaders for their organization.

For boards of directors and university trustees this is an important inflection point relative to attracting the best leaders for key roles; the competition for talent will increase significantly as the year progresses.
