RETURN ON LEADERSHIP
It was a pleasure to work with Ray & Berndtson. We had a couple of very senior positions to be filled, and we achieved a shortlist of good leaders in a short period of time. In addition, the discussions we had to convert the positions along with the options generated made the executive search and onboarding much easier. Ray & Berndtson's personal attention and dedication towards the assignment is greatly appreciated.

Is it any wonder that the latest Industry Week poll of senior executives found CEOs saying the management issue they would lose sleep over is ". . . finding the people their companies need to be successful?"
The right leadership determines success or survival. With fewer internal opportunities for management development and only a handful of companies investing in ongoing executive and training programs of quality, the pool of qualified talent borders on being microscopic. Ray & Berndtson's industrial products and services practice provides clients with options -- access to candidates with the talent and compatibility needed to drive their companies to the next level of creative, positive growth.
Industrial companies of all sizes and in all sectors are completely different from their ancestors of just a decade ago. New structures, resulting from mergers or eliminating layers of management to achieve a flatter, more nimble company, are the norm. Decentralized business units and global business units replace more bureaucratic, organization-centric hierarchies.
Strategies for success seem to be the opposite of those held in esteem for most of the previous century. Progressive companies are pushing profit and loss responsibility deep into the organization. Reminiscent of the drastic action taken by Allied leadership in WWII, industrial companies cultivate strategic alliances with other related businesses -- even with life-long competitors. Multi-functional product development teams, with representation from different concerns, collaborate. Some create value chains and attack the challenge of capturing value from e-Business.
Even the products are different! Organizations capitalize on the cradle to grave economic opportunities their products offer. Support services, financing, leasing, and consumables customers need throughout the life of the product boost revenues. And if these seminal changes weren't enough, companies are revisiting how they measure success.
Ray & Berndtson professionals have been providing Clients with value for money leaders and we measure our success through our the return on leadership obtained by our clients.
