AESC Reveals Clients Perspective of Executive Search in France

AESC Reveals Clients Perspective of Executive Search in France
 
In 2010, the Association of Executive Search Consultants (AESC) - in collaboration with its French mem&shybers - surveyed 140 clients of executive search in France to discover the latest thinking on retained execu&shytive search services from the clients point of view.
 
Findings revealed that clients of executive search rate the individual search consultants reputation and methodol&shyogy as the most important criteria when choosing an executive search firm, rather than the profile of the search firm itself.
 
Highlights of the study revealed:
 
The number one reason why organisations partner with retained executive search firms is to gain access to a broader talent pool and a diverse slate of candidates.
The majority of HR professionals (65%) engage the services of executive search partners for between 1 and 5 assignments per year.
 
After the individual search consultants reputation and methodology, the next most valuable asset when choosing a search firm is the insurance of ethical and professional consulting the cornerstones of AESC membership.
 
Over half the hiring professionals surveyed work with multiple executive search firms as long-term consulting partners.
 
57% of HR managers say that their choice of search partner varies (in terms of size/structure) depending on the position and circumstances.
 
The majority of hiring professionals would like to build longer-term relationships with executive search firms.
 
99% of HR professionals surveyed are happy, or somewhat happy, with their relationships with executive search firms.
 
Executive coaching is the most popular value added service.
 
French HR managers most commonly choose to work with search firms based in France, after which they look to retain partners in other European countries (outside of France and the UK).
 
The majority of respondents (84%) work for International organisations 70% are senior human resources professionals and 17% are CEOs.
