The Executive Monitor 2011 report is ready for download.

The annual study is an on-going attempt to better understand the behaviour of executives and high-income earners in Australia. This year we revisit familiar themes, addressed in the first study, like education, remuneration and work, but also touch on new subject matters. In particular we looked at the issue of workplace diversity and discrimination. We also explored the view of executives on recruiters, jobs, social media, best places to work and study.

Executive Monitor – Understanding the Behaviour and Intention of Executives in Australia



ExecutiveMonitor

Three months ago we embarked on a study to better understand the behaviour of executives in Australia. The results from the study, involving 1332 executives across Australia, can be downloaded here.

The study offered many insights but also raised new questions,a nd many of the findings merit further exploration. In the coming days, I will explore in greater detail many of the topics covered in the report. Without doubt this report is a first step in a journey of discovery. For now, it is my hope that the findings will trigger discussion within organisations on how they recruit, engage and manage executive talent.

The media is relentless with their ‘sky is falling’ reporting.

The good folks at AESC (Association of Executive Search Consultants), a global association of executive search firms, paints a more optimistic picture with their latest membership survey report.  Some of the key findings:

  • 45% expect the economy to rebound in the second half of 2009, while 40% expect it will be the first half of 2010.
  • Healthcare, Government, natural resources and pharmaceuticals/biotech sectors will continue to hire.

How to hire software developers
When hiring software developers the traditional method of resume and interview proves ineffective. Many company are starting to practice ‘extreme interviewing’.

Jobs distribution
As job boards, specially the niche players, assert themselves, we will see a wide range of new partnerships.  Sixfigures partnership with Australia’s Women Online is a case in point.  Very soon a job board’s worth will be measured by its networks and the partnerships it keeps.
