Do you plan to hire executive talent in your organisations in the next 3-6 months?
Do you intend to focus on development & succession of senior leaders in your organisations in the next 3-6 months?

'The movement at senior level is being driven both by organisations that need leaders with both digital and commercial acumen, and by candidates who want a strong workplace culture, more opportunities and a better remuneration package.'

Stephen Phipps - UK & European CEO

'ExCos can succession plan more effectively by starting now - even if you don't think you'll need it for years. Look both internally and externally, actively develop multiple successors for a role and partner with search firms who will help you cast the net wide, challenge your assumptions and offer objective advice and guidance.'

Elle Robinson, Director, Talent Solutions  

'Forward-thinking businesses are able to make an immediate and sustained difference to exiting employees with outplacement support. It's not only the right thing to do, it also delivers additional benefits, such as brand efficacy and engagement of those leaving as well as those remaining. If you want to stand out as an employer of choice, you need to make sure you look after the employees who have served you well.'

Joe Wells, Director, Talent Solutions
