The 2014 CEO Career Report just released by the Association of Executive Search Consultants (AESC) and BlueSteps shows that the top career management concern for 81% of CEOs worldwide was finding new opportunities. Concurrently, the majority of CEOs are focused on finding and retaining top talent to grow their current organization, with the majority (53.3%) stating that this is their top business-related concern.
The AESC BlueSteps survey was conducted from February 2014 to April 2014 and included responses from CEOs in manufacturing/industrial, technology/telecoms, healthcare/life sciences, professional services and other sectors worldwide. Additional findings of the report include:
- Most-needed skills for today’s CEO candidates were strategic thinking (72%), decision making (38%) and motivation of people (29%).
- 61% of CEOs spend one to eight hours per week on social media for professional networking purposes.
- CEOs feel positive about their communication and working relationship with their board of directors and key company stakeholder groups.
Peter Felix, AESC & BlueSteps President, commented: “This report reminds us that while CEOs are focused on the key issues of attracting and retaining talent to their organizations, they are themselves concerned about their own career progression and the next opportunity.”
