It’s Where You Want to Be and Where the Legacy Bowes Group IS!
Recently a 15-month review was conducted of more than 3000 Executive Search Recruiters across the US, Europe and Asia by Hunt Scanlon Media. The results were that “The entire talent industry is at an inflection point and we therefore examine close-up what a number of executive search providers are doing – and how they’re all doubling down on their business offerings.”
The report takes a hard look at the challenges and effects of the biggest recruiting outfits - to diversify their business platforms, or risk being left behind. The results Hunt Scanlon uncovered were that “since the top-end recruitment business has expanded well beyond these large global search providers, Hunt Scanlon appraises some of the hottest boutique specialists and explores why so many of them are surging ahead at double digits.”
According to Mr. Scanlon - “It’s a dynamic time to be covering this sector, and as far as we can tell no one is being sidelined – but rather this seems to be an evolutionary period for everyone with people and leadership at the centre of the industry’s core consulting offerings.” Further, Scanlon goes on to say that “This year we look at growing holistic talent management platforms that the largest search firms are developing that integrate candidate identification assessment tools, coaching, leadership development, culture shaping and onboarding. How leaders fit into an organization culture, how they drive it and how head hunters can predict a leader’s success is the next big opportunity ahead for everyone in this field.”
When we read this at Legacy Bowes, we were quite pleased.
