We have found that people seek to make personal or professional changes twice a year. On New Year’s, we seek that new job, home, or svelte body. After Labor Day, children return to the fun and excitement of school days; we have taken that needed vacation, and are ready to reengage for the final year end push!
In the words of Sam Cooke, “It’s been a long time coming but I know a change is gonna come”. Well that time is now! The Alexander Group has several changes to announce which will help us fulfill our mission of being the search firm of choice to our clients.
Over the years we have grown by nurturing our clients, many of whom have been with us since the 1980s. While our global search practice has continued to expand, the call to open a London office can no longer be ignored. The Alexander Group has formed an international division, Alexander Team Capital which is headquartered in London.
Many clients have expressed frustration at their inability to find a recruiting partner for mid-level management positions----levels below which The Alexander Group typically recruits. We are addressing this and will be making an announcement of our solution in the weeks to come.
Finally, The Alexander Group has a new web site! We wanted our web site to tell a story, giving our clients and potential clients a stronger sense of who we are and what we stand for. We engaged Douglas Newman (award winning HBO documentary maker) and Matt Williams at Mouthwatering Media to help us tell the story of The Alexander Group, our culture, and our team. Our new site includes ample career planning resources, including links to our favorite career and personal growth books, tips and advice collected from years of experience that no other search firm will tell you, and a place for you to introduce yourself to us. Future clients can search the web site by function and industry to get a sense of our breadth and depth. We also have detailed information on our team complete with their best career advice. And of course our beloved blog and social media tie-in have also established a comfortable home at our new website. So, come on in...grab a glass of champagne and stay a while. We are happy you are here.
And what changes are you contemplating for the future?
