Every year, we reach out to thousands of senior executives – both candidates and clients to gather feedback about their experience with search firms across the US and Europe. In a guarded industry such as executive search, where public feedback is hard to come by, often potential clients have very little data to help them make the right decisions.
This is where our survey becomes relevant and significant – our survey ranking is the only trusted source of recent and genuine feedback directly gathered from the market. With strict controls in place, we detect duplications and attempts of manipulation.
Our survey focuses on retained executive search firms that uses research driven methodology to identify and select the best available candidates. The ranking covers executive search firms that are headquartered and has the most number of Consultants in the US.
Our survey data and ranking are the go-to source for executive search buyers who are keen on placing their time and money for the best results.
In 2022, our public survey ran from 7 th October to 23 rd October and forms an integral part of the overall ranking process. With over 7,800 respondents from over 54 industries and sectors, both candidates and clients provide valuable insights into their view of the market.
Our ranking is not solely based on revenue or size of the business. “Revenue-only” approach to ranking puts smaller firms and those not willing to disclose revenue at a disadvantage even though they are deeply valued and trusted by candidates and clients alike.
