Choosing a new CEO is one of the most intricate and crucial decisions for the board of any organization. The decision-making is further complicated by the fact that most boards and committee members are rarely involved with CEO selection. Hence, JobsPlan has developed a dedicated line that steers companies to be confident and geared up for an orderly and successful CEO transition at the right time. We conduct CEO assignments engaging our highly experienced consultants, all of which have distinctive characteristics.
When selecting candidates for all senior leadership positions, best practice involves where the organization deciphers both internal as well as the external options. As a result, we always recommend and assist our clients to conduct a regular endeavour to assess and develop internal contenders who could one day lead the organization. And in the event that it proves necessary to launch an external search for a new CEO, we have the capability to access the best talent available for the role globally whilst respecting the highly sensitive nature of the assignment.
We share the below comprehension:
- Long term succession - A good succession plan is more than a contingency plan; it involves talent recruitment/development and retention planning to provide the company with a pipeline of outstanding leaders who represent genuine Chief Officer's options for medium/long term milieu.
- External talent mapping - Boards should have clarity of the quality of leaders in relevant foundation who could be attracted to build their bench strength or be influential external chief candidates.
- CEO integration - A CEO's success, particularly early in their tenure, is aided by effective integration. With this in mind, we offer services that support the on boarding of the new leader in the early months following their appointment. Typically this involves two in-depth 360" reviews of their profile followed by their early tenure in the company.
JobsPlan is distinguished in its ability to counsel organizations on the identification and development of both internal and external candidates with the potential to become future CEOs. Our global networking and manpower consulting gives rise to an unrivalled level of collaboration which enables us to quickly identify all qualified candidates wherever they are located.
