N2Growth Launches Cloud-Based Platform Vue

April 11, 2024 – N2Growth, a Philadelphia-based management consulting and executive search firm, has launched cloud-based Vue. “Vue marks a significant leap in the executive search industry, offering unparalleled transparency, collaboration, and data-driven insights at every stage of the search process,” the search firm said. “In an era where data and transparency are paramount, we’ve engineered Vue to reshape the customer journey in the executive search industry,” said Kelli Vukelic, CEO at N2Growth. “Vue is not just a tool; it’s the future of executive search. It’s designed for a more informed and precise hiring process, ultimately empowering our partners to build effective long-term leadership strategies.”

Vue’s holistic approach enables a global, real-time, comprehensive overview of all ongoing executive and board search assignments. N2Growth notes that this approach liberates stakeholders from tracking documents, reports, notes, and feedback across disparate systems.

The platform enables an all-encompassing whole-person analysis of each candidate, evaluated against an organization’s specific business and leadership needs, providing 50+ data points on each candidate – from leadership competencies to their ability to drive business outcomes, along with personalized executive coaching recommendations assessed by N2Growth’s certified executive coaches. Vue also supports anti-bias candidate review and evaluation processes, using AI to eradicate biased language, and continuously assesses candidate pool diversity.

“Vue combines the power of technology with the human intelligence of our consultants to facilitate a data-driven executive search process that is adaptive and responsive to the evolving competitive landscape,” said Ms. Vukelic. “It allows our clients to measure and adjust the search strategy in real time to co-create a swift and successful leadership placement.”
