The Executive Mobility Survey, conducted by the AESC from July 12th to October 15th 2007, investigates key factors driving senior executives to make job changes. In an effort to gauge the search field’s level of understanding of these motivating factors, the survey was posed to both executive level candidates, members of the AESC’s BlueSteps, and to AESC member search firms.
Respondents to this survey included 933 BlueSteps members and 152 AESC member firms. Of the BlueSteps respondents 502 are from North America, 278 are European, 96 are from Asia Pacific, 30 are from Central or South America, and the remaining 23 come from other parts of the world. Forty three percent of BlueSteps respondents are aged 45-54 and 38% are aged 35-44.
