Four Decades of Leadership Recruiting Success in Western New York
The pressure to make the right executive hires has never been greater. Having the right people in the right seats is essential to meeting growth targets — and right now, there are far more seats waiting for talent than there are highly qualified, high-performing executives available. If a resignation, a retirement, or period of growth has created a vacancy on your leadership team, finding, recruiting, and retaining the individual with the right combination of skillset and mindset to drive your organization forward will be no small feat.
With more than 40 years of experience as executive recruiters, we know the essentials of a successful C-Suite Executive search. CCY uses a proprietary search and evaluation process to determine the best technical fit and culture match. Statistics show that nearly a third of executives fail in the first year due to poor fit; therefore it is critical to align with an established, credible firm that has effective, proven search methods.
There is a common misperception that the first step in the executive recruitment process is to gather a list of potential candidates. In truth, identifying one or more leadership candidates with the potential inspire greatness in your people is actually one of the last steps in a complex and nuanced process.
The problem with internal HR teams is that they don’t get to the heart of the hire — the business problem to be solved by a people solution. At CCY, we take an investigative and consultative approach to executive recruitment. Our executive recruiters work with you to clearly outline the business problem at hand, envision a people-powered solution, and provide value by defining the capabilities, motivators, personality traits, and cultural characteristics necessary for your new hire to fit seamlessly within your organization.
