Today’s Challenges

Today’s automotive companies face significant challenges when recruiting and retaining senior leaders. In many economies, talent shortages and an aging workforce leave automotive organizations short on the key players needed to keep up with the relentless pace of technological change and evolving consumer demands. With much of their talent budgets allocated to hiring qualified professionals, automotive companies must also find a way to balance the ongoing cost of developing internal bench strength and retaining best-in-class executives.

Whereas the automotive industry has become more of a closed shop with its own rules and approaches over the past decade, widening the scope of executives and finding people who define the future rather than optimize existing businesses is a key challenge in today’s automotive market.
