As the advent of technology has fueled globalization -- making the world seem that much smaller -- successful companies are increasingly seeking to build teams that mirror the world in which we live. For 30 years, CTPartners has helped Fortune 1000, NASDAQ, private equity and venture-backed companies build diverse, world-class leadership teams populated with professionals who offer differentiated experiences, functional expertise and visions.
CTPartners knows and understands that inclusion is a business priority. Based on our experience in the field, CTPartners appreciates that the surest way to build a truly diverse workplace is from the top down. In fact, the largest area of need voiced by our clients is for diverse candidates to be considered for senior level positions. Experience has shown that having an inclusive management team that provides subject matter expertise, leadership and a global view, is the swiftest way to attract – and retain – a talented, diverse workforce.
CTPartners has a dedicated team which has built one of the most unique inclusion practices within any professional services organization. We have recruited a very powerful Inclusion Board of Advisors dedicated to our practice. This group is made up of eight top business professionals who have opened doors for us to be able to resource diversity talent. They have taught us which associations we need to affiliate with, where we need to speak, who we need to know and have significantly contributed to our ability to develop our data base. Additionally, they have opened their Rolodexes to us. Our Inclusion board of advisors is made up of individuals with diverse ethnic backgrounds who have demonstrated their own interest in promoting inclusion through their own efforts before being asked to join our board.
CTPartners consultants are uniquely qualified to identify, attract and engage the "star" leading candidates who collectively will form a diverse pool of executive talent. Our success is based on a proven methodology that yields positive results. First, we invest the time required to truly understand a client’s culture. Upon assessing the environment (in terms of communications, atmosphere and existing diversity status), we then consult with our Board of Advisors, who offer insights on the nuances of engaging candidates from different cultures. Finally, we match search criteria against the CTPartners database, which includes thousands of the world's most accomplished, diverse and experienced candidates from a number of industries.
