Change is constant in the executive search industry. Retained executive search firms are specializing in industries and functions, across countries and increasingly using digital and social media channels for recruitment. They are also creating an enhanced set of services using sophisticated evaluation tools. Many small and mid-size companies are collaborating to build global networks under a common brand name to share clients, resources and specializations across geographic markets. This evolution has increased the operational load and the volume of data that needs to be managed efficiently. Amidst an intensifying talent shortage, executive search firms are also under pressure to reduce time-to-hire.

WNS’ large team of highly-skilled professionals with their domain expertise and experience, enable executive search firms to meet their database management, process improvement, finance and accounting, talent mapping and document production needs. Combined with our analytics capabilities and knowledge of industry best practices, we help executive search firms outperform through lower costs and faster turnaround times.
