By knowing and understanding your talent pool and the senior level candidates available, you can ensure you are ahead of the competition when hiring for business critical positions. Now, how do you build a comprehensive picture of the best candidates available? Through mapping and scoring individuals against key criteria and leveraging insight at every available opportunity, hiring managers can ensure they know not only 'who is who?', but perhaps more crucially, 'who is great?'. It is this comprehensive understanding of your talent pool that will result in hires of real strategic value to an organisation.
C-suite level candidates are assessed on different criteria and there is a need to dig deep into the individual’s capabilities. There is also additional pressure on hiring managers to ensure that the candidate is the right fit, as the roles they are being considered for are as major company decision-makers. As such, hiring managers will normally deploy different recruitment channels such as internal referrals, direct sourcing, partnering with search agencies and market mapping to reach out to a wider pool of candidates.
