Using Affiliate Providers to Fill Executive Level Positions

2017 is predicted to be the year of technology, life sciences and industrial sectors when it comes to executive level hiring according to executive search firm ON Partners. That’s a result of the continued economic recovery, digitalization and cyber-security concerns, according to the search firm.


Among the list of top executive jobs in life sciences and healthcare is chief strategy officer and director of virtual medicine, whose responsibility is applying technology to patient care.


When the shoe doesn’t fit

Making the selection for an executive level position is not for the faint of heart mostly because the impacts can have far reaching effects.


A survey of more than 6,000 hiring professionals worldwide conducted by CareerBuilder revealed that 27 percent of the U.S. employers surveyed said that just one poor hire cost their company more than $50,000.


However, the costs go beyond the dollar amount when factoring in negative impacts on employee morale and client contentment. If the erred position is of an executive level the ramifications can quickly balloon.


Increasing your bets  

On the contrary, making the right choice can be a game changer for an organization.


Leaders become great, not because of their power, but because of their ability to empower others.  – John Maxwell


Executive leaders are selected to be in it for the long haul in most cases. They set or maintain company culture and make subsequent organizational and hiring decisions that can have lasting positive change. Success breeds success, and when it comes to healthcare organizations, patient care relies on empowering leaders to pave the way.


With so much at stake with an open executive position, organizations often look for help in identifying the best and brightest talent in this increasingly competitive marketplace by utilizing affiliate providers.
