Executive Search Quarterly Report: Q1 2023
Opened searches increased nearly 12.5% quarter over quarter in Q1—the largest single-quarter growth since Q3 2021—but some sectors of the market aren’t yet seeing that turnaround.
Overall, it seems, we are in an environment that has created three very different markets.
Our report highlights key developments in the macro environment, within each asset class and the technology sector specifically, as well as executive compensation and search velocity benchmarks by asset class.
2023 Executive Search Pulse Survey

Executive Compensation & Hiring Benchmarks 2022
Throughout 2022, we saw a rapid decline in leadership hiring—with search volume declining by 43% in Q4 from Q1, a huge contrast to 2021. Through an economic cool off, companies pivoted in 2022 from a focus on growth-at-all-cost to efficient, sustainable growth–creating demand contraction. Thrive’s annual benchmarks report quantifies what all this means for our industry.
