Top 10 Emerging Executive Search Firms - 2022

Digital transformation and candidate engagement are playing significant roles in the executive search arena. While companies push for a longer longlist, the candidate pool is becoming smaller based on the initial criteria of recruitment and the state of today’s talent market. As such, successful search firms are diversifying their hiring strategies, searching beyond the realm of specific position histories and targeting people with strong competencies suitable for clients’ goals and requirements.

As the element of having a great network and developing stronger relationships remains crucial, firms are digitalizing their knowledge with intuitive technologies in order to compete at the highest level. At the same time, today’s executive search firms are using social networks to find, attract, and hire executives. Also, social media platforms help companies to expand their network, do a direct search, and seek new possibilities that increase the opportunity for one-on-one engagement with potential candidates and customers. On the other hand, virtual reality (VR) is becoming the best tech enhancement for companies by enabling them to showcase their working environments to encourage the best talent to join their organization.

As such, the technological transitions are helping corporate companies hire the right talent in smarter, unimaginable ways.
