  • Edward Fleischman, CEO of The Execu|Search Group, Featured in Forbes

    New York, April, 2014—Edward Fleischman, Chairman and CEO of The Execu|Search Group, was featured in a recent Forbes article discussing the rise in selectivity amongst qualified job candidates in the current marketplace and how companies can retain their top employees  through “stay interviews.”

    In the article, In The War On Talent, Use ‘Stay Interviews’ To Retain Great Employees, author Cheryl Conner highlights the importance of conducting stay interviews or informal reviews between a manager and employee to discuss progress, ideas, and/or any job-related issues. These candid reviews help managers build open relationships of trust with valued team members.

    “As we’ve grown as a company, it’s been really important to us to adapt our business with the changing times,” explains Hannah DeGiovanni, Chief Marketing Officer of The Execu|Search Group. “As technology evolves and becomes more engrained in the hiring process, we knew that a growing number of professionals were searching for jobs from mobile devices, and wanted to make sure our site was easily accessible for all of the users who were visiting us while on the go.”

    As a result, with ease of use always being a priority, in 2013 the firm re-developed their main site using adaptive technology for a responsive design in order to display content optimized for different devices – computers, tablets, or smartphones.  So far, traffic to The Execu|Search Group’s site from mobile devices has increased 46% year over year, with application rates and general engagement rates on the upswing as well.

    “With our responsive design website, the ease of use improves the process for every visitor to our site, no matter what device they’re using or what content they may be trying to find,” notes Hannah. “With one site address that reformats for all devices, the site is truly a one stop shop, and it reduces the confusion that can sometimes exist when users need to move back and forth between sites or apps for different intended actions.”

  • Edward Fleischman, CEO of The Execu|Search Group, is Featured in Forbes

    New York, January, 2014 – Edward Fleischman, Chairman and CEO of The Execu|Search Group, was featured in a recent article discussing the firm’s 2014 Regional Hiring Outlook whitepaper published on Forbes.

    In the article, Who's Hiring Now (And How To Surmount The Growing Skills Gaps In 2014), written by Cheryl Conner, Edward made note of several employment trends including the skills gap affecting the healthcare and financial services sectors. “With each new federal mandate, companies need additional specialized employees to keep their business compliant or drive their companies forward,” he commented. In response to the skills gap, employers in some industries are raising wages to attract talent and/or putting greater emphasis on soft skills when hiring.

  • The Execu|Search Group Releases Their 2014 Regional Hiring Guide

    New York, January, 2014 – The Execu|Search Group, a leading recruitment, temporary staffing, and retained search firm, is pleased to announce the release of their 2014 Regional Hiring Outlook whitepaper.

    The hiring guide aims to educate both employers and jobseekers on the factors and trends that affect the strength of the workplace in the recovering U.S. economy.  The 2014 Regional Hiring Outlook whitepaper analyzes both employment and skill trends that will be prevalent in 2014 while identifying which industries will implement steady hiring practices throughout the year.

    The Execu|Search Group’s projections for 2014 are unique in the fact that they are truly regional.  “We started as a regional firm, and remain one to this day,” said Ed Fleischman, CEO of The Execu|Search Group.  “The vast majority of our clients are located in the Northeast, and the trends that affect business in one region of the country may vary greatly compared to other areas.  As a result, we felt it was valuable to educate our stakeholders about the regional hiring trends that will specifically affect them in the coming year.”

    A couple notable trends that the firm derived from their data is that clients across industry sectors noted that, when hiring, they are experiencing a skills shortage and putting greater emphasis on “soft skills,” such as communication skills, analytical thinking skills, and drive/initiative.   As Ed stated, “We felt it was important to inform our stakeholders of these findings, so they had a stronger understanding of what they may need to emphasize or improve upon to put their best foot forward.”

    To collect their data, The Execu|Search Group surveyed 195 clients across the New York City Tri-State area and Greater Boston.  The majority of respondents were hiring decision makers who hold C-Level, Director, or Managerial titles and work within these industry sectors: Accounting, Financial Services, Healthcare, Human Resources, Legal, and Office Support.

    New York, January, 2014 – The Execu|Search Group is pleased to make a few big announcements about the firm’s expansion throughout the New York City Tri-State Area and Greater Boston!

    On January 13th, the firm officially opened its Hartford, Connecticut office at 100 Pearl Street, Suite 1402.  Headquartered in New York City with additional offices in Melville, New York, Stamford, Connecticut, Bridgewater and Parsippany, New Jersey, and Waltham Massachusetts, this is the firm's seventh office and second in Connecticut.  To oversee the development of the Hartford office, The Execu|Search Group hired Kevin Bracken, who has over 10 years of healthcare recruiting and staffing experience, as Managing Director.

    “We felt that opening the Hartford office provided us with the perfect opportunity to expand our market presence along the Northeast Corridor,” explained Kyle Mattice, President of The Execu|Search Group’s Health Services, Temporary Division.  “Establishing an outpost in Hartford will also help link our business in the state of Connecticut with our activity in the Greater Boston area.  To build this connection, we felt that our Health Services practice area was the best place to start, and as we see more opportunities for growth, we will continue to expand.”

    In early January, The Execu|Search Group launched its Engineering division.  Under the leadership of Danny Myers and Joseph Amador, the division will connect businesses with talent across the fields of civil engineering, environmental engineering, and manufacturing on a full-time, temporary-to-full-time, and contract basis.

    The firm also expanded its Financial Services team with the addition of Sara Katz and Adam Harwood.  As Director, Sara joins Execu|Search with over eight years of prior recruiting experience and is responsible for the recruitment of Hedge Fund front office professionals.  Her areas of expertise include: portfolio managers, traders, and analysts, and she will continue to be exclusively focused in those areas.  Adam also joins the firm as a Director, responsible for the recruitment of front office professionals.

  • The Execu|Search Group’s Jesse Siegal Featured on Mediabistro.com

    New York, January, 2014 – Jesse Siegal, Managing Director of The Execu|Search Group’s Temporary Staffing division, was featured in a recent article discussing the firm’s whitepaper titled, The Rise of the Contingent Workforce, published on Medibistro.com.

    In the article, New White Paper Reveals the Rise of the Contingent Workforce, written by Vicki Salemi, Jesse commented on the temporary staffing trend specific to the media industry.  “Often times, employers in the media industry today are more apt to rely on a contractual temporary employee to fulfill employment gaps while working on a particular project,” noted Jesse.  “This is due in large part to the rate at which technology is evolving, which is often faster than the companies and industries that they are intended to support.”

  • The Execu|Search Group’s Edward Fleischman Featured as a Guest on Bloomberg TV

    New York, January, 2014 – On Friday, January 10th, Edward Fleischman, Chairman and CEO of The Execu|Search Group, made a guest appearance on Bloomberg Television’s “Taking Stock” with Pimm Fox where he discussed The Execu|Search Group’s hiring projections for 2014.

    The projections, which are also featured in The Execu|Search Group’s 2014 Regional Hiring Outlook whitepaper, covered top challenges clients are facing in growing their business, the skills gap, and the increase in demand for staffing services.

    “We’re finding that close to 50% of the clients we surveyed have reported that the top impediment in growing their business is hiring talent,” explained Edward.  “They have a need for certain skills and are having a difficult time finding candidates who possess these skills in the marketplace.”

    To bridge the gap between hiring needs and the skills shortage, which according to The Execu|Search Group is especially prevalent in the Healthcare sector, Edward noted that employers must be willing to pay more for the talent they do find, and if they can’t find the talent they want, he advised employers to “get people on board who possess drive and initiative, and train them.”

    Edward also commented on the need for talent internally at The Execu|Search Group.  “We’re a function of the marketplace and if our clients are hiring, we have to hire people in our firm so that we can meet their demands.  For instance, in 2013, we experienced a 23% increase in headcount.  As the market continues to have this demand, we at Execu|Search will continue to grow.”

  • The Execu|Search Group temporary employee, Christine Mathurin, chosen as a finalist for the New York Staffing Association's Staffing Employee of the Year Award

    New York, May 2010 - The Execu|Search Group is proud to announce that one of its temporary employees, Christine Mathurin, was nominated for the New York Staffing Association’s Staffing Employee of the Year Award. She was chosen as one of four finalists invited to attend the awards ceremony and luncheon presentation hosted at the Association of the Bar of the City of New York on Tuesday, May 18, 2010.

    Healthcare Staffing Coordinator Amanda Bleakney nominated Christine because she feels that Christine embodies the five key messages of the American Staffing Association: jobs, flexibility, bridge, choice, and training. The five messages relay what the organization believes to be the major benefits of working as a temporary employee.

    Christine’s flexibility in choice of assignment allowed her to work at four different clients of The Execu|Search Group.  Her work as a temporary employee helped to bridge the gap until she found a permanent job offer.  She was able to choose when and where she worked while gaining experience and knowledge of a variety of organizations.  With these assignments, Christine increased her population-specific skills through orientation and free training thus increasing her overall marketability as a great candidate.

    “Christine Mathurin has always been a pleasure to have working on our assignments,” said Staffing Coordinator Amanda Bleakney.  “She is positive, flexible, a great communicator, always gives extra effort, and is a shining example of what we look for in our temporary employees.” 

    The Execu|Search Group congratulates Christine on her nomination and a job well done for exemplifying the qualities that all employers are seeking in their ideal candidate.

    New York, October 2009 - The Execu|Search Group has established itself on various social media sites in order to connect with job seekers in the City of New York and Tri-State area. Adding to a 20+ year track record of innovation and excellence, The Execu|Search Group is one of the first regional recruitment firms to launch a social media initiative to assist job seekers.

    Utilizing multiple Twitter accounts, a Facebook fan page, LinkedIn, and a company blog (blog.execu-search.com), The Execu|Search Group interacts with job seekers and career people alike, sharing the latest career-related news, job seeker tips, and up-to-the-minute job opportunities. The Execu|Search Group believes that staying on the cutting edge of technology is necessary to success in the recruitment industry.

    With more job seekers turning to the internet each day for networking and job opportunities, we are pleased with our online presence- particularly on social networking sites,” said Edward Fleischman, CEO of The Execu|Search Group. “It allows us to interact and assist them with their job search in ways that were not possible just a couple of years ago.”

    Social media is just one part of the innovative online resources The Execu|Search Group offers job seekers. Earlier this year, The Execu|Search Group website was listed as one of “The 20 Best Job Search Web Sites” by PCMag, one of the world's best-known publishers of leading technology-based digital content products. Links to all of the company’s social media profiles can be found on the company’s website by visiting www.execu-search.com/socialmedia.

  • The Execu|Search Group’s website named one of “The 20 Best Job Search Web Sites” by PCMag

    New York, March 2009 - The Execu|Search Group’s website, www.execu-search.com, was listed as one of “The 20 Best Job Search Web Sites” by PCMag, one of the world's best-known publishers of leading technology-based digital content products.

  • The Execu|Search Group’s CEO Edward Fleischman tells CNBC: “Finding a new job can be done"

    New York, February 2009 - Edward Fleischman, CEO of The Execu|Search Group, was recently interviewed by CNBC’s Mark Koba in regards to the current job outlook in the Financial Services industry. While recent turmoil on Wall Street has left many finance professionals without a job or, at best, without job security, Fleischman believes there are good opportunities available for professionals willing to be sensible and strategic in their search.

    While there has been a substantial drop in hiring within Financial Services, other industries are not only hiring - they’re growing. Professionals willing to expand their search to other industries – for example, Health Services (i.e., Pharmaceuticals), Technology, Government, and the Legal field (i.e., law firms specializing in investment banking) – are more likely to find success.

    It’s also important to remember that the number of job seekers has increased substantially in the City of New York and the Tri-State area over the past several months, and that means extraordinary competition for fewer jobs. Job seekers would do well to look beyond New York City and consider re-locating as firms in many other areas of the country would love to hire experienced New York talent.

    Fleischman also points out that looking for a job is, in itself, a full-time job, and it is vital to devote as much time as possible to the process. In addition to utilizing recruitment firms and personal connections with friends and former colleagues to assist you with your search, online professional networking services such as LinkedIn can be an excellent resource and a great way to get your foot in the door. Recruiters from all divisions at The Execu|Search Group can be found on LinkedIn and are always open to connect with those seeking employment.

    Above all, says Fleischman: “You have to have a good mental outlook. Wake up every morning and go find it.”

2008 News

  • The Execu|Search Group ranked as one of the “Top 50 Best Places to Work in New York City”

    New York, December 2008 - Based on the results of Crain’s 2008 survey of “The Best Places to Work in New York City”, The Execu|Search Group has landed among the elite top 50 companies recognized. Our firm is proud and honored to have been among the most highly ranked workplaces in the area, and we are grateful to all of our employees for their decisive part in this achievement.

    Results of the survey were based on responses from more than 25,000 employees at over 300 firms in the New York City area. Conducted by Crain’s in partnership with Quantum Market Research, the survey measured the extent to which employees felt valued, trusted the company’s leadership, and felt they were provided with opportunities for advancement. It is a privilege to be in the company of all of the highly successful, respected organizations whose employees earned them this distinction. (View the complete list here)

    At Execu|Search, our employees are unified around the same mission – to provide top-level, uniquely personal service to every client and professional with whom we work. Valuing and respecting our employees for that service is, quite simply, a given, for, without their hard work and dedication, The Execu|Search Group would not have developed the longstanding and leading reputation in the recruitment and staffing industry that it has since we opened our doors more than 20 years ago.

    To that end, our workplace is also built around the notion that great work should be recognized and rewarded. Firm-wide social events ranging from monthly charitable fundraising events to daily gatherings in the firm’s Recreational Room for games of ping pong and billiards help us to achieve a balanced work environment. We also believe in providing performance incentives and growth opportunities; for example, we have initiated a firm-sponsored “Chairman’s Circle” event in which the firm’s top performers are rewarded for their top service with a weekend-long getaway at a major resort.

    Interested in learning more about what it’s like to work at The Execu|Search Group? Our employees would love to tell you more!

  • The Execu|Search Group’s CEO Edward Fleischman interviewed on BBC’s “Alvin Hall’s Wall Street Walk”

    New York, October 2008 - Edward Fleischman, CEO of The Execu|Search Group, was interviewed by BBC’s Alvin Hall for a special report titled, “Alvin Hall’s Wall Street Walk.” The special uncovered untold stories of people in and around the Wall Street Community and how their lives were impacted by the crash in 2008.

    Hall, who worked on Wall Street for more than 30 years, was interested in calling out the ripple effect of the crash and its impact not just on executives, but on everyone from charitable organizations who depend on Wall Street donors, to administrative workers and their families, and beyond. Meeting with laid-off businessmen, small business organizations, and even a psychologist, Hall asked how each was uniquely affected by the Wall Street crisis and whether or not they thought they could survive the credit crunch.

    Edward Fleischman was chosen for the interview based on his 25+ years of experience in the recruiting field. Hall asked for his observations on the effects of the crisis on the job market, the job seeker’s mental psyche, and the likelihood that those laid off on Wall Street would be able to find a job. Remaining optimistic, Fleischman believes there are opportunities available for professionals who are willing to be sensible and strategic in their search; however, he acknowledged that sacrifices, such as relocation and pay cuts, may have to be made.

    Part of a BBC’s Radio 4 series, Crash, this interview was aired on Thursday October 23.

  • Jeff Rossen of WNBC-TV interviews Edward Fleischman, CEO of The Execu|Search Group

    New York, September 2008 - In the wake of Lehman Brother’s collapse, reporter Jeff Rossen of NBC –TV, took time to interview the CEO of The Execu|Search Group, Edward Fleischman.

    Standing outside of the Lehman Brothers building, Rossen asked former Lehman employees what their next step would be. “I have no idea,” one former Lehman employee answered. Seeking tips and insight for the increasing number of white collar job seekers, Rossen visited The Execu|Search Group at its headquarters in New York City -- home to one of the largest financial recruiting firms in the City of New York and the Tri-State area.

    Upon witnessing the Execu|Search financial recruiters receiving a flood of phone calls and resumes from worried workers, Rossen spoke with Edward Fleischman to gain some insight on the financial crisis and its effect on the job market.

    Answering questions about first steps, the job market, and what white collar job seekers can do to find a job, Fleischman discussed the effects on the employment situation for the financial services sector, from college grads to senior executives.

    “The people who are going to have problems out there are the people who just graduated and just got a job, or who may be a year or two out,” Fleischman said. “They will have problems in this market place.” In regards to senior executives who are seeking new opportunities, Fleischman recommended using all possible networks, including recruiters and niche job boards, to find a new position.

    Utilizing existing skills in another industry to make a job change is also possibility, Fleischman explained. For example, an investment banker who specialized in dealing with hospitals could transfer his skills to work as a financial executive in a hospital setting, or could join a consulting firm dealing with the healthcare industry. He went on to suggest that because New York City is very rich in financial talent, it may be wise to expand the job search to areas with less concentrated pools of talent. Firms in other regions of the world would love to hire experienced New York finance professionals. Job seekers should be open to relocation and be willing to take a salary cut, if needed.

    Finally, Fleischman closed with optimism, “There is a job out there - you have to stay positive, be smart, and put in the work to find it."
