Career Event: Myths and Facts. New Era of Leadership Recruitments

In the current dynamic market, leadership tenures are becoming shorter and more transient. Getting leadership hiring wrong is proven to be time-consuming, costly, and even harmful. Prioritizing shared values encompassing diversity, equity, and inclusion is crucial, along with a focus on individual skills, knowledge, potential and abilities over traditional metrics like education and experience. Efficiency is key to reducing time-to-hire and recruitment costs across job levels and organizational life cycles. Technology is already transforming recruitment processes by assisting organizations to screen candidates faster but helping candidates to write better CV. Recent studies reveals that over 70% of people sugarcoat their resumes and at MBA and Doctoral levels this figure is over 80%.

The focus is shifting. It’s not just who you hire, but how you do it. AI is reshaping the landscape and traditional recruiting industry is challenged and renewing the way C-suite selection is done.

  1. How is the recruitment landscape changing and how should organisations adapt?
  2. How to ensure diversity & inclusion as your key hiring cornerstones?
  3.  Is adopting capabilities for skill and knowledge-based recruitment crucial?
  4.  Are traditional hiring mechanisms equipped to meet the rapid changes and demands of the evolving job market? 

Join us in this topical Henley Careers Event, discussing what the future of recruitment looks like and how you can start building capabilities to manage the change.
