LOS GATOS, Calif., Sept. 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- A new series of online videos by executive search firm Arnold Partners provides practical knowledge for executives, founders, and HR leaders looking to hire the highest caliber C-suite executives. The videos focus on how to improve the outcome of executive search by engaging the right search partner. Retaining a search partner is a common practice for both companies and nonprofits seeking to make an executive-level hire; however, only about 70% of retained searches get completed, according to search industry publications. Regardless of whether the search is completed or not, the organization typically pays 100% of the fee.
"Engaging a search partner is an important and expensive decision that ideally leads to making a hire that adds tremendous value to a company. But little information on the process is available, and a lot of mistakes are made. Either the search is not completed, or a less-than-stellar executive ends up getting hired," said Dave Arnold, founder of Arnold Partners, the leading independent executive search firm for technology companies looking to hire CFOs, which is based in Silicon Valley. "A major reason for failure is that CEOs and hiring managers aren't asking the right questions when selecting a search partner."
