Having a difficult time motivating top talent to give you a second look? Engagement is at an all-time low for most executive-level employees. Relocating leadership hires is frustratingly difficult given job stability concerns and housing market stresses. Comp and incentives have had to be significantly restructured and no longer offer the bonanza of the 2000s.
While challenging, now really is an ideal time to woo the best and brightest experienced and fresh leaders to your organization. You have to be prepared to confront these real challenges while instilling commitment and energy in finalists. More than just a great elevator pitch, executive recruiters will need a strategic plan to assure talent and get them onboard.
