Finding the right leaders for C-suite, board and other senior roles can be daunting. For Crossover Search, it’s all in a day’s work. We have access to a wide network of top life sciences leaders, and a solid track record in executive search. Successful placements include:
How does your staff interact with one another? What are your operating norms? How important is collaboration? Culture is key.
Searches at the executive and board levels are more complex, and often require a broader strategy that considers team and organizational dynamics. Multiple talent management tools come into play, such as:
Talent Mapping: This proactive technique uses competitive research and analysis to build a robust “map” of high-performing and high-potential candidates, both internal and external. The result is a flexible talent pipeline that can form the basis of a succession plan for meeting any future needs that arise, whether through growth or organizational change.
Cultural Assessment: An applicant can meet or even exceed your hiring criteria, but cultural fit often dictates what happens once they’re on the job. Employees who integrate well with their company, colleagues and managers have more job satisfaction, perform better, and stay longer. Therefore we work with you to define your culture, and weave this understanding into the search process.
Organizational Development: Rooted in behavioral science, this process looks at how your organization’s structures and processes either support or impede performance and motivation. This information is used to develop your organization’s capabilities by aligning strategy, structure and management processes with the right talent – particularly at the executive level.
