Want to Win the War for Talent? Join Us On the Front Lines!

In 2023, we’ve seen a year that’s not always been predictable for hiring new leadership. While businesses dealt with economic uncertainty and inflation risk, they also faced a talent shortage. 38% of CEOs in a Deloitte survey say they expect labor/skills shortages to continue disrupting business in 2024. At the same time workplace shifts—from virtual work to a now-critical focus on employee retention and wellbeing – call for excellent, innovative People leadership now more than ever. Yet it’s not as easy to hire the right leaders as many CEOs and executive teams may hope.

In recruiting this year, we’ve heard clients voicing myriad questions: How do we make sure our top candidate will accept an offer—without risk of a last-minute change (or a competitive offer)? Or: we expected hiring in this market to be easy. Why isn’t it?

On December 7th, my expert colleagues Randy Schmitz and Beth Ann Namey, Partners of the firm, will hold the first in a series of webinars we’re excited to produce. They’ll share tips, observations from clients, and insights into hottest HR roles now – all geared to help you hire that next great People leader. Please join us! (Register here.)
