Executive Search Firms

COVID-19 pandemic has forced lasting changes to corporate business structures and company culture. Organizations have been forced to recruit and onboard, even top-level talent in new and innovative ways. As businesses transition into hybrid and flexible models, there is a renewed focus on employee wellness, agility, transparency, diversity and inclusion. These trends have considerable ramifications on the way executive-level talent is being acquired and retained across the globe.

Retained executive search firms have responded to these challenges by embracing technologies like video conferencing, leveraging the power of social media and building an ecosystem of carefully nurtured connections to identify the right leadership to steer organizations. These changes have allowed firms to be in touch with many potential candidates at the same time on active searches. Consequently, the need for efficient scheduling and virtual screening have come to the fore.

We partner with retained executive search firms to build quality talent and outperform through cost optimization and faster hiring times. Combining deep domain expertise and experience with robust digital and analytics capabilities, WNS enables three of the world’s top ten executive search firms to meet their recruitment and hiring targets through support across executive search, business development and consulting.

Testimonials

“Kudos and BIG THANKS to the team for pulling together data and updating for the Board Mapping in such a short period of time!!!! Working alongside the team, I was impressed by the level of details and going above and beyond (and day and night) for this update. With this update, we have been able to provide insights on an urgent key client meeting and get a good head start for another project. Thank you again!

Knowledge Director, Top Executive Search Firm

Team - amazing, excellent work and I am so impressed with both - the quality of research as well as the highly efficient process you managed throughout the two phases the project was split in. This is a really important and valuable piece for the sector team and we could not have done this without your support. Please thank everyone who played a role here.

This gives us a wonderful start to be able to try to identify the bulls eye individuals. Thanks again to all. This is excellent team work and I am really impressed by the standard and thoroughness of this work. This is great and many thanks to the project team! I am having some good conversations and have a few people in my sights but this is a tough search for sure!
