Long term AESC member, Transearch International, has been running a blog for over a year focused upon Executive Search and hiring practices. It is an excellent resource for both clients and executive candidates.
To get you started, here are 3 articles recently published that resonated with us here at BlueSteps:
1. Why Firing A Misfit Executive Is Nearly As Important As Hiring The Best
We all know the dangers of a bad hire, but as Transearch point out, it is how an organization deals with the hire that sets them apart from the rest.
2. Employment Negotiations at the Executive Level
BlueSteps has published many articles about how to negotiate your executive compensation, however one point we have not expressed throughout is how to use executive recruiters to assist you as a third party. Search firms are an excellent resource during this process and this is a great article explaining that.
3. Bridging The Global Talent Gap: Connecting Human Resources And The Board
Another hot topic right now is Board of Directors, from gender equality to the role Boards should play. Transearch International make an interesting argument for the increased hiring of human resource professionals onto boards. Essential read!
