The 2011 Executive Monitor Report has just been released today. It offers valueable insights into what Australian men and women are thinking when it comes to areas like;
Executives are engaging in a wide range of activities to enhance their career prospects. Nearly 53.4% registered on social networking sites, while another 49.8% registered with third-party recruiters and 26.7% with job boards. However, when it comes to finding a job, personal networks and contact reign supreme; 27.1% found a job because of who they know. Job boards continue to remain an important channel with 15.4% using them to find a job, compared to 0.9% for those using social media. Karen Jenkin from Six Figures, believes that executives will continue to endorse job boards because “they are a proven channel to reach employers, and especially third-party recruiters.”
The report offers valuable data to assist organisations looking to retain and/or attract executive talent.
The Executive Monitor, a joint project between Six Figures and Destination Talent, is the second nation wide study aimed at better understanding the behaviour of executives and high-income earners in Australia.
