We take immense pride in helping organizations find the right structure, strategy, talent and operations plan that result the biggest impact they can create. Not only are we proud of the work we do, but we exceed industry standards in many of our service areas:
According to a recent study conducted by Clockwork Recruiting, analyzing over 23,000 anonymized retained Executive Search projects between January 2015 and August 2018, the global average placement rate for the retained executive search industry is 71%. We knew better was possible: S&C’s cumulative placement rate is 93%.
Retention rates for those placements within their organizations can be another metric of success. While at a certain point, a person’s departure has little to do with the search firm’s efforts, we believe it’s worth at least monitoring a one-year horizon. For S&C’s executive searches, an average of 97% of our placements are still with their organizations after the first year.
