I was delighted to share my thoughts on the challenges facing in-house executive search teams in the latest edition of CIPD's People Management Magazine. With leading in-house talent professionals including Aaron Webster of Capita Plc and Andy Mountey of Aspen In-house sharing their thoughts, the article highlights the value of an in-house executive search function. It also offers insight into the biggest challenges facing in-house teams and how they can be overcome.
If you are looking to implement or grow an in-house executive search function, the article is certainly worth a read. Thanks again to People Management Magazine for inviting me to share my views.
One of the reasons in-house executive recruitment is on the rise is the availability of technology that can streamline the process of sourcing and assessing candidates. What sets great talent functions apart is that they’re called out at a very senior level in the company as having a critical role in its success. It’s more than bringing a couple of super-brains into the executive talent team – it’s more about having an executive hiring culture in the business.
