Ep 363: Evolution of Executive Recruiting
One of the topics I get asked to cover frequently is the growth of the corporate executive recruiting function. So with that in mind, I've partnered with ESIX, The Executive Search Information Exchange, to bring you a series of three interviews exploring the key trends and issues in corporate executive recruiting.
In the first interview of the series, my guest is Simon Mullins, Chief Facilitator of ESIX. ESIX run a yearly membership, and in our discussion, Simon gives us an exclusive preview of the results of this year survey, highlighting the key trends the pandemic is driving in corporate executive recruiting.
In the interview, we discuss:
▪ Background to ESIX
▪ The growth of the corporate executive recruiting function
▪ Pandemic driven trends
▪ Reducing time to hire
▪ The executive talent market
▪ Interview and assessement
▪ Location flexibility
▪ Diversity challenges
▪ How onboarding is changing
▪ Simon's hopes for the next 18 months
