While the executive search industry is showing signs of recovery, the benefits of that recovery have not been evenly distributed.

In our latest Executive Search Quarterly Report, we explore how Q3 shaped out for the industry with an in-depth analysis of both qualitative and quantitative data. 

We gathered a panel of industry leaders for a live roundtable session to discuss our findings.

Here are a few key takeaways:

  • Industry focus has played a key role in the status of executive recruiting teams’ recovery.
  • Agile executive search teams can divert resources to more fruitful industries/functions.
  • Managing relationships with candidates and hiring managers should still be top priority for executive recruiters.
