Key talent acquisition trends for 2022: perspectives from the US

Executive search is an ever-changing landscape and times made it harder than ever both to compete in the various markets, as well as obtain and retain the best talent, especially in the larger job markets. We caught up with our colleague in the US, Managing Director at Kestria USA: 20/20 Foresight Executive Search (www.2020-4.com), Rebecca Wilson, to discuss implications for the future of recruitment from her perspective.

Reaching talent goals in a market with a shortage of candidates

In our recent blog, “How do you attract motivated candidates in a scarce market?” we introduced the concepts of the candidate journey and the candidate experience as vital factors when fostering candidate commitment ensuring the provision of the best, motivated candidates for our clients. This is something we practice every single day as professional ambassadors for our candidates and clients.

Boosting gender equality calls for diverse thinking

Diversity and inclusion are hot topics globally. At the forefront of creating a fairer, more equitable and proportional post-Covid world, gender mainstreaming, in particular, is a key focus. Indeed, gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls are key components of the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals for 2030.

We are Kestria

“Hagoort & Partners / Kestria Netherlands were instrumental in our journey of hiring a new CEO for RIPE NCC. They not just understood the nature of our organization, but also our self-managing and agile company culture. They presented us with a set of diverse candidates to choose from. On top of this all was executed perfectly in time.
I can highly recommend them for any Executive Search.”

Christian Kaufmann, Chairman of the RIPE NCC Executive Board
