Because of how we work when supporting our clients, we have a very unique “glimpse” into how over 5000 Executive Search companies and almost 20 000 decision makers react – the majority of which being located in Europe; and we collect and analyze how they respond; and we observe if and what kind of trends there are to leverage them into better human resources and career management & more effective job search methods. Before there are trends, there are signals which we usually keep to ourselves. But these are not usual times, so we decided to share those market signals by the end of each week. If the country / context is important, we’ll add them. Otherwise, we’ll keep it general for confidentiality. We’ve continued reaching out to CEOs, HR Directors, investors, board members and candidates that we know personally, to take the temperature. Below you’ll find their shortened quotes in no particular order. Collected Quotes from CEOs and HR Directors The vast majority of executives are with market leaders in their respective industries. By default, the board members are members of local boards; if not, we’ll indicate the exception. Retail: There’s a lot of movement in our segment at the moment. Even though a big part of our consumers switched to online shopping, the stationary sales points are still working properly. Production: The consumer goods industry has had good results and thanks to that we exceeded our goals for this year. The only problem is that we are unable to hire the people we need – it seems like there’s not many on the market.
