Cebu today is known as a primary center for trade, industry, and culture. Its booming infrastructure coupled with the growing demand for business makes it an appealing prospect for local and foreign professionals looking to make the ‘Queen City of the South’ their home. Its BPO, KPO and IT outsourcing industries are steadily growing, maturing into robust, strong markets. As part of the government’s overall strategy to increase investment and to disperse growth across multiple regions, Cebu has become a coveted location for businesses looking to establish large service centers and regional headquarters, whilst seeking the top talent to fill their open positions.
Accordingly, the war for top talent in Cebu continues. With so much rapid growth, Cebu is a challenging market to recruit in. There is a high demand for talented executives, managers and other skilled employees. Therefore, both established companies and new market entrants alike are competing to recruit the top leaders for their businesses, always seeking ways to gain a competitive advantage to seek, attract and retain the top talent over their competitors.
Executive Search: The Hunt for Top Talent
At the executive level, corporate direction is set, company culture is dictated, and the bottom line is affected, making hiring senior executive talent a highly detailed and time-consuming process. In addition to ensuring your executives and managers have the knowledge and skills to help you run your company, they must be a perfect match for your company’s goals, culture, and values as well. To merely have experience in the role and the field simply isn’t enough to guarantee success, which is why hiring at this level can take an extremely long time. Furthermore, you won’t find many of the region’s top leaders on LinkedIn, and you definitely won’t find them through the usual job boards.
Most leaders are not advertising themselves on the market, are not concerned about updating their CVs and are not trawling through job boards. Instead, they are focused on their jobs and delivering success in their current roles. With this lack of visibility, many founders, CEOs and HR teams tasked to seek executive talent on their own are finding their access to talent very limited. This is where a seasoned headhunting service comes into play, and opens your access to the top, hidden talent for your most crucial roles.
