Companies hire the right candidates about ⅔ of the time. That leaves a lot of room for improvement. Hiring decisions are often made based on “gut feel” about the candidate and their fit with the role.
BroadBranch has developed a set of best practices for hiring senior executives that relies on a handful of key skills including:
- Identification of the best candidates for the role
- Various testing methods that qualify and quantify a candidate’s actual ability relative to other candidates
- Deep business and industry knowledge that can help
These leadership search skills can be applied in-situ during a broader strategic assignment that requires the hiring of a high-performance leader, or ad-hoc based on the needs of a company.
