“By guiding an executive search in the right way, you can be more confident in finding the right candidates, have meaningful conversations with the right candidates, and bring aboard the right person.”
New York, NY (PRWEB) March 30, 2010
The Executive Search Group has released a new e-book for the busy CEO and HR executive who must drive her company’s strategy for establishing gender equity at the highest levels.
In March 2010 The Executive Search Group conducted the company conducted an online survey of 7,800 U.S. executives, asking 9 brief questions related to gender equity in the workplace. More than 600 people responded, and a majority thought that their employer does “get it.”
“The top take-away is that, although research shows gender equity pays off, and although many employers have the right goals regarding gender equity in talent acquisition efforts and business succession planning, in practice something is missing,” said e-book author and chief executive officer of The Executive Search Group LLC Tim McIntyre.
For example: of the 600 people who responded to The Executive Search Group’s Women in Leadership Roles 2010 Survey, 78 percent rated their current employer as either a good or excellent gender-diverse place to work compared to other places they have worked; but 49 percent of the female executives who responded to the survey said they had considered leaving their employers for the lack of advancement opportunities. Of those who had considered leaving, the two most common reasons were:
- They felt their contributions were not being valued, and
- They were being excluded from informal networks among the execs
This 12 page e-book, available for instant download, covers:
- Do Women Leaders Help Companies Perform Better?
- Putting More Women on the Leadership Track
- Gender Equity Is Not Affirmative Action
- The Business Case for Gender Equity in Management & Leadership
- Tips on Building Gender Diversity in Your Organization
In Executive Recruitment and Gender Equity author Tim McIntyre gives the business case for fostering gender equity; notes top recent studies and articles on the issue; and suggests ways to build a more equitable executive team. The material is short and easy to grasp and helps HR managers and CEO's stay up to date on the latest information and best practices.
“In the current economic climate, it’s become mandatory to optimize your leadership team,” said McIntyre. “By guiding an executive search in the right way, the CEO can be more confident that the company will find the right candidates, have meaningful conversations with the right candidates, and bring aboard the right person.”
