As a specialist Executive Search firm, we have over 15 years of experience offering diversity recruitment services that place diverse candidates into senior leadership teams. We have a fresh approach and are passionate about helping leadership teams achieve greater business performance through access to a diverse range of talent.
Our service is tailored to your business needs. As a result, some of the most forward-thinking businesses internationally trust us to help create an effective diversity and inclusion strategy, and acquire high quality, diverse senior leaders.
“The Hampton-Alexander Review team would like to congratulate Savannah Group for excelling in their work to further diversity and inclusion in the recruitment of senior leaders at Board, Executive and direct report level.”
Statistics show that gender, ethnic and culturally diverse individuals are under-represented at the executive level. Sourcing and acquiring the best diverse talent frequently requires searching beyond the obvious markets.
This far-reaching process of diversity mapping enables us to discover diverse leadership talent wherever it is, in your industry or beyond.
Savannah Group quickly demonstrated a deep knowledge of the talent pool, and were able to call on their wide ranging network to inform the search process. We challenged them for a diverse short list of high calibre candidates and they delivered. It was a pleasure to work with Savannah on this search and I’m delighted that we were able to complete this critical appointment within our targeted timescale.
Patrick Bermingham, Group HRD
Very responsive, found quality people for us and quickly understood our culture to find people that are a strong fit. Even if there have been challenges they have always found a way to solve the problems and create solutions. The partnership and collaboration has been a positive for us.
Sebastien Froidefond, Chief Human Resources Officer
We knew there would not be many people in the market with the skill set we wanted so we needed a global approach. The added complexity of the search was the accelerated pace we asked them to work at, which they did successfully without compromising on quality.
Maira Kokkinou, VP Talent Acquisition
Our partners operate at the highest level of the market, focusing on Board, C-Level Corporate Functions and appointments in key sectors. We were one of the first Executive Search signatories to the voluntary code of conduct to address gender diversity on corporate boards – an inclusion initiative that indicates just one of the ways we’re continually improving our own diversity recruitment.
We are partnered with the Windsor Leadership Trust and their programme to support Black and Asian leaders, and we regularly host events and share our thought leadership to bring awareness, enable discussion and ultimately support positive change.
We are delighted to support Windsor Leadership in the launch of their new programme to support Black and Asian Leaders.
The Inspiring Black and Asian Leaders Programme offers senior leaders from differing sectors the opportunity to engage in a challenging, thought-provoking and inspiring environment and shape an energising vision for how and where they lead in the future
Since 2018 we have been producing quarterly and annual reports providing analysis of board and executive appointments within the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250, specifically looking at gender balance. Among other observations, the analysis shows a significant increase in gender diversity amongst the non-executive director appointments however a significant shortfall in diversity amongst the executive director appointments.
