SRI specializes in management recruiting solutions for clients looking to fill top leadership positions. We understand that there is intense competition for the very best management talent today. A 2011 Harvard Business Review survey found that only 15% of companies in North America and Asia believe they have enough qualified management-level successors in key leadership positions. The demand is even more intense in emerging markets and is expected to continue for another two decades.

While traditional management skills will always be in demand, there is now an increased need for additional competencies. Today’s managerial candidates must understand the holistic cost/risk relationship and must also positively impact productivity without restricting creativity and performance.

SRI’s recruiting specialists see the demand for management talent with integrity, who have proven track records as leaders within their companies and within their communities. Learn more about how our focus in this practice area sets us apart.

Facilitating Partnerships

Key to SRI’s success is our multi-step talent identification process. Recruiting for management talent requires more than a scan of a resume. Intrinsic personal qualities like character, judgment and decision-making capabilities can only be brought out through in-depth interviews.

SRI’s management recruiters uniquely assess talent to make sure that skill sets and mindset are aligned with your company. We create partnerships between clients and leadership talent that pay off with a higher return on investment through dedication and longevity.

Many of our management recruiting consultants have come to us from careers in management. Their breadth of experience allows them to have rich discussions with leadership candidates and identify the best fit with potential employers — quickly and efficiently.
