At Invenias, we're continuing to see an increase in the number of enterprises looking to build an in-house executive search function. The London Conversation, hosted by our partners at the In-house Recruitment Network, was a great opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the hot topics, challenges and issues facing enterprises as they look to recruit top talent. The opportunity to establish relationships and gain insight from leading organisations is invaluable, particularly given that in-house teams are increasing looking to Invenias for solutions to the challenges of executive and strategic hiring. 

From a personal point of view, I particularly enjoyed Transport for London's presentation on their success in establishing an in-house executive function as well the great work done by Schneider Electric in driving diversity and inclusion. Invenias CEO, David Grundy, wrote a recent insight on the value of a diverse workforce, if you haven't read it, it's worth taking a look: Diversity - it's more than just a tick box exercise. Other hot topics included the value of assessment and scoring of talent on key criteria and the benefits of building a talent pool. 

All in all, it was great to meet so many people and hear from the specialist speakers. The round table discussions also provided real food for thought for the Invenias team.

If the successes of Transport for London and their in-house team were a source of inspiration, join us at our next in-house event: 'How to build an in-house executive search team'. At the round table breakfast on 29th June, our specialist guest speakers will share their insights on building or extending an in-house executive search team.
