Talent in Key!

Companies often treat human resources as an afterthought in business strategy and generally land up paying  a heavy price for the same; in some cases the penalty for such an approach is fatal. Most of the time, the focus of most organizations are on the competition for customers and not on the competition for talent…. And there lies their limitation or reason for lack of sustained growth.

Getting the right people in the correct role at the right time is more important in achieving overall goals than any other part of a business plan. People are one of the largest, if not the largest, and the most critical investment a company makes. Mediocre and bad hires, as well as the ripple effect caused by ineffective recruiting, comes at a cost of valuable resources in terms of money, time and overall Morale. In most cases, it also costs them their SUCCESS.

We, because of our experience and expertise in this field for the past few decades are able to help organizations in their quest for talent.

Leadership Hiring

More than 40% of New Leadership hires will fail in the first 18 months. A quarter of the remaining in the next one year. More than 30% will land up just maintaining the status quo of the organizational position in the market place. No real growth will happen. Only 30% of new leadership hires will, in actual terms, SUCCEED. Why?

Why is the failure rate so high? What are the factors that are leading to a good professional failing so often in a new job? The reasons are not only surprising but also enlightening. The 4 top reasons for a new hire failure at the executive level are ….


  • 33% - Failure to establish key relationships and partnerships

  • 31% - Failure to align with the organization’s Culture

  • 22% - Failure due to ineffective People management / Team Building Skills

  • 15% - Failure to align with Organization’s core AIM


What is interesting about these numbers is the fact that the top  factors are all “Competency / Capability Based” and not “Skilled Based” attributes. This assumes great significance in Leadership Hiring, since most of our recruiters and management are prone to Skill based assessment and interviewing. Hence all these failures are due to wrong or incorrect Fitment due to inappropriate assessment / interviewing skills. That’s where we come in.


All of us at Simply U focus not just on skills and cultural fit that are easily identified but also on attributes that are difficult to measure or even identify like “network fitment” but which play the most important roles in the success probability of a new leadership hire. At Simply U, We are trained to give equal importance to:

  • Behavior as much as Back Ground

  • Inherent Ability as much as Industry Experience

  • Context as much as Content


Our Success has been our ability to understand what is and what can be.


Our Leadership Hiring practice is geared to work with you, for you to ensure your organizational aspirations are met. We can work with you in the following manner


  • Leadership Hiring Mandate

You give us the mandate. We give you our recommendations of the best available candidates. We charge a “Search Fee” for the same

  • Leadership Interviewing

You have an internal team working on your requirements. In one of the interviews, our experts join as part of the interviewing panel. We then together select the best fit. A “Fee” is charged for our services.  This service could be availed per instance, per position or even on a retainer basis where we become a part of all interviewing activities for a fixed period for all positions above a certain grade.

  • Leadership Hiring Team Training

We could train your own internal teams (includes the recruiters, managers and management) on effective interviewing and assessment skills. The training would be workshop and live interview based.  

RECOMMENDED: if you are a growing organization and are recruiting aggressively for new talents.
