How could it be that some of the top performers in your organization don't really know where they stand with regard to their advancement potential, their rewards for superior output nor their future with your enterprise?

That question has been raised many times by former General Electric chief Jack Welch, and it was raised yet again at the 2012 World Business Forum in New York City, where ExecuNet exclusively reported, because the message of putting people first apparently still isn't gaining traction with business leaders.


It's not likely you'd cold-call a C-suite executive and audaciously ask for a job at their company, so why would you dial up a recruiter and expect them to find you a position?

ExecuNet's exclusive Executive Job Creation Index ticked up seven points in September. This is a rebound from the low level reached last month. Recruiters report that one in five companies are now looking to add executive level positions in the next six months.

ExecuNet's exclusive Recruiter Confidence Index continued at low levels in September and remained below 40 percent. It says that while there are pockets of opportunity, recruiters are not seeing a broad-based improvement in the overall executive employment market for the next six months.


What World Renowned Business Leaders Have to Say

Many of the world's top business leaders, from a variety of industries, gathered in New York City to share their views on business and the challenges today's leaders will face in the coming years. Attendees learned how visionaries from a wide range of management disciplines define the process and commitments required to realize the potential for raising organizational performance in a time of lingering economic uncertainty and a changing global economy. These are can't miss insights for any business executive!
