Four Key Trends in Executive Search

As we roll into the second quarter of 2023, political, social, and economic forces continue to create a complex situation for Hiring Managers and CEOs to deal with. Let’s take a look at some emerging trends in Talent Acquisition:

  1. A stronger focus on DEI initiatives: “Clients are continuing to push for more diversity at the executive level, said the report. As a result, they require more diverse candidate pipelines and seek partnerships with external experts (such as executive search consultants) to make that happen.”

  2. Increase in Interim Hires: The value of a strong interim executive, particularly in finance, is recognized by a growing number of organizations. An expert who can guide a company through a transition and provide a strong strategy to follow is very much in demand.

  3. Succession Planning is more important: “C-Suite retirement is continuing to increase, and many executives are opting for alternative career arrangements such as consulting or interim roles, resulting in the need for proactive succession planning.”

  4. Shift in Candidate Priorities: Candidates are looking not just for work-life balance, but organizations that are economically and culturally resilient .
