Executive Search Services in China

The competition for qualified executives in China is fierce and the risks associated with an unsuccessful hire can be catastrophic. Widely cited research indicates that nearly half of new CEOs don’t make it past 18 months, and the costs of replacing them are staggering. 


Direct costs include compensation, the impact on sales or lost market share, and duplicated recruiting investments. More indirect costs include lost momentum and negative impact on organizational, market, and customer confidence. Research confirms what business seasoned leaders know from experience: the wrong hire affects employee morale and productivity, client relationships, and economic performance. 


These risks can be reduced and the converse benefits enhanced by leveraging sophisticated management assessments, executive search, and due diligence processes.
