InterSearch Worldwide Chairman Frank Schelstraete shared his views about the future of Executive Search with the HR community attending Zukunft Personal Hungary in Budapest, a specialised HR event combined with more than 130 professional debates and workshops led by subject matter experts.
“the real Executive Search is a highly-targeted and labour-intense process, which doesn’t have anything to do with building a candidates’ database”.
“when we talk about Executive Search we talk about individual companies and individual talent able to do something that makes the difference in a unique professional environment and company culture. How to identify the perfect match in such unique combination, it can’t be done exclusively by A.I. tools – only the human mind is able to sense that.”
“we simply must do it better than our clients, with the most updated practices and highly qualified Researchers and Consultants - University Master degree or PhD and fluent knowledge of at least two foreign languages are requirements for all my growing team.”
His key message to the audience:
“Having passion and drive in the HR profession is very important. As a Head Hunter I find it when I meet exceptional individuals as clients and even more exceptional people as candidates, and those moments are my “professional joy” – definitely a feeling not belonging to A.I. tools, at least for the time being…”
