Career transitions are rarely easy, they are however especially tough for senior executives. The process of outplacement takes longer for them.
Many senior executives haven’t been in the job market for years and are not used to marketing themselves. Moreover, they have a smaller pool of job options that fit their specialization and experience, combined with a longer list of personal and professional requirements for the jobs they’re willing to take. Since 60% of jobs are not posted online, the customized Reverse Headhunting is a necessary tool to shorten the job search by half.
The main focus of research in Reverse Headhunting is to connect and search for decision makers in supervisory board, family entrepreneurs and connections which are located mainly out of the local country at a regional or sub-regional level.
We customize the procedure for a senior executive’s individual situation so that they can quickly transition into a new position in which they can be successful in the long term.
It’s extremely important for companies to help outgoing senior executives successfully make their next career step. Their smooth departure generates smoother leadership transitions within the company. Even more importantly, maintaining as positive a relationship as possible with departing senior executives can forestall litigation and protect good company reputation. After all, many senior executives are thought of as leaders in their respective fields whose opinions on brands and companies can be influential.
We take into account the sensitivity required in this area during outplacement.
