Our work does not end once a candidate has been appointed. Around 40% of executives leave within the first 18 months of starting a new role, according to Fortune magazine. This is hugely costly to an organisation but can be avoided through better recruitment and more effective induction.
We work with clients to prepare leaders for transitioning into a new role by equipping them with the skills and insights needed to achieve immediate success.
From day one we support candidates by smoothing the transition and helping them build productive relationships. Our rigorous approach helps executives understand the organisational culture, learn how decisions are made and how to implement ideas successfully. And our unrivalled knowledge of the business and client landscape enables us to tailor onboarding plans to specific roles.
