Executive Search

 

WHAT IS EXECUTIVE SEARCH?

Executive search is usually a retained service to support an enterprise in planning, identifying, engaging and onboarding the best candidate for leadership roles.


Searches are primarily performed for mission critical roles that directly influence the enterprise’s ability to achieve key objectives. Taking a proactive and focused approach, executive search helps enterprises identify and secure their next leaders. 

Businesswoman

76% of hiring staff say attracting quality candidates is their biggest challenge.

WHY IS IT ESSENTIAL?

The company with the best talent thrives; staying competitive requires being proactive. Finding the best talent to elevate your enterprise takes more than a job posting on your company career page or LinkedIn/Indeed.


Leading, or aspiring to lead, enterprises understand the value of deliberately and aggressively pursuing the top talent as the best method of strengthening their enterprise.

The market is always evolving and your enterprise is always facing new challenges. New innovations require new skills and as a result, there is always a talent shortage in the marketplace. Leading enterprises shape their future of work strategy and gain an advantage in the talent market through proactively recruiting top professionals for mission critical goals.

Opportunistic Hiring

 

WHAT IS OPPORTUNISTIC HIRING?

While opportunistic hiring may sound like a fancy talent acquisition term, it simply refers to hiring good talent when the opportunity arises, rather than waiting for a position to open.

Talent shortages are increasing year over year and top talent who add value to an organization will inevitably be snapped up quickly. It’s therefore worth considering hiring an individual even when a job doesn’t exist. Opportunistic hiring allows employers to operate more strategically and gain talent for the future.

 

It is very difficult, almost impossible, for a company to outperform competition and achieve objectives without having the best talent in their team.

Successful Manager

$8.5 Trillion - Talent Shortage:

By 2030, more than 85 million jobs could go unfilled because there aren’t enough skilled people to take them.

WHY IS IT ESSENTIAL?

In an ideal world, we would have exactly what we need when we need it. Reality on the other hand is not so accommodating. When an exceptional professional becomes available, the leading enterprises understand the importance of seizing the opportunity. Having the wherewithal to identify talent and opportunistically acquire them can significantly accelerate your business towards your objectives.

An enterprise that only uses recruitment to fill current and immediate talent needs will be always be one step behind those that act proactively and focus on future hiring projections.

72% of companies reported talent shortages in 2020 - more than three times higher than a decade ago.

WHY PRESS & ASSOCIATES?

If you’re not hiring ahead, you’re falling behind.

The opportunistic hiring service we offer not only allows the candidate to achieve their career objectives, but it also gives enterprises the chance to be confidentially introduced to passive talent who could help them achieve mission critical objectives
