As our clients adapt to meet the rapid pace of change across all industries, we, too, have transformed. Ellig Group was established, created organically from its legacy company, Chadick Ellig, and with much of the same team that serviced clients over the years still in place!
Our Executive Search Practice, focused on retained senior-level searches for the C-Suite, divisional, and boardroom positions, remains the cornerstone of our business. We continue to work with clients across all industries, including diversified Financial Services, Professional Services, and Healthcare & Nonprofit. Functionally, we continue to be a multi-specialist firm, with an emphasis on the Communications, Marketing, Digital, Finance, Human Resources, Legal, and Strategy verticals.
Our commitment to inclusion is the hallmark of our company and our people. We know – and the research shows “groupthink” is mitigated and that diverse leadership teams make for the best, most innovative, and most successful organizations. We are immensely proud of our unparalleled track record and ability to truly deliver for our clients: Over the past three years, 96% of our candidate panels contained women and/or diverse candidates, resulting in 75% of our Executive Placements and 85% of our Board Appointments being women, people of color, members of the LGBTQ community, people with disabilities, and veterans.
While our Executive Search Practice is the foundation of our company, it is only the beginning of our partnership with our clients and candidates! Professional development is a lifelong journey and our philosophy, offering a more meaningful and holistic approach to the full talent life cycle, is enhanced by our new Leadership Practice. Through our advisory and assessment capabilities, as well as our leadership development and onboarding programs, we provide the guidance and tools to help individual executives and client organizations reach their goals before and after the search process. We’ll share more about these services here in the coming weeks and months, but here is a quick overview of what you can expect:
- Executive Assessment: We have developed an insightful and comprehensive methodology for assessing an executive’s key drivers and critical performance factors, and his or her overall alignment with an organization’s culture, practices and rewards.
- Onboarding: Our post-placement roadmap guides leaders in making a smooth and successful transition into a new executive role. This service includes ongoing post-placement communication and advice, client alignment strategic review, candidate review to discuss priorities and identify success strategies, and executive coaching.
- Executive Coaching: We offer customized needs-specific guidance geared towards high-potential talent and executives who want to increase their performance and refine their leadership style.
- Leadership Development: We offer a variety of programs on key leadership topics, including a monthly seminar where Janice Reals Ellig shares advice and insights to talent board-ready women looking to position themselves to serve on their first board.
We want to thank you for all of the trust you have placed in us over the years as we’ve had the privilege of helping you build out your organizations’ leadership teams or navigate your own personal career changes. We are incredibly excited to embark upon this exciting next chapter of our journey at Ellig Group with you!
