Confidence Among Executive Recruiters Continues to Climb

February 21, 2011 – Confidence among executive recruiters continues to climb as an increase in management recruiting activity confirms that more companies are thinking about growth in 2011 and more business leaders are poised to explore their career options, according to the results of ExecuNet's Recruiter Confidence Index (RCI). In January, the index revealed that 75 percent of 188 responding executive recruiters are “confident” or “very confident” the executive employment market will improve over the next six months, up nine points from December and reflecting a five-month surge in recruiter confidence. “Companies are using their networks and employee referrals to recruit new management talent into their organizations, but we're also seeing more employers turn to executive search as a means of upgrading or replacing management talent to meet business growth objectives,” said Mark Anderson, President and Chief Economist of ExecuNet. “What may be more revealing for the longer-term is that very few companies continue to eliminate management roles.”
