Perhaps you’re considering hiring an executive search firm to find the best C-suite executives to take your company to the next level of growth. Keep in mind that when the stakes are high and the labor market is tight, mid-market companies can benefit from retained search just as much as large companies.
So how do you decide which firm to partner with on your search for C-Suite talent? It’s important to separate the myths from reality… During our recent Growth Igniters® Radio conversation with Jane S. Howze, Founder and Managing Director of the award-winning executive search firm The Alexander Group, she shared this insight with us:
If you need someone who is going to impact the organization at a very high level, you want a search firm who is a thought partner and asks, ‘Have you thought about considering these types of executives and how to we identify them? Who are the passive candidates?’ Because many times, the passive candidates—the ones who aren’t looking—are the better candidates.”
