2016 will continue to see a rapid increase in the demand for leaders with proven track records in generating rapid growth and providing market differentiation in the Managed Services arena, especially in the Cloud, Hybrid, Infrastructure, SaaS, PaaS, and Mobile segments. Our long-standing clients, already leaders in providing these capabilities, continue to face fierce competition for talent. This pressure shows no signs of abating anytime soon. It is further exacerbated by a demand for technical, product and general management leadership from adjacent sectors like energy management and automated transportation whose providers, in so many ways, have become almost pure technology providers themselves.
Another trend we are seeing (and appreciating) is a greater emphasis placed by Boards of Directors and hiring authorities on requirements beyond functional and financial achievement to include the less measurable criteria of morale management, employee job satisfaction, and sense of pride. Esprit de corps, however amorphous or subjective it may be, pays valuable dividends to technology companies who wish to retain talent in highly competitive markets.
A final note: the swift pace of change in mobile has left many companies vulnerable to having their traditional paths to the customer easily and unexpectedly compromised by new, often smaller competitors. Traditional decision-making hierarchies, well established compensation formulas, the concentration of certain categories of high-demand technical talent on the coasts, and the opportunity to work with the latest tools and technologies challenge many traditional companies to step out of their comfort zones in order to be competitive for the best and the brightest.
At the end of the day, business success is always about the people. No other asset confers the same competitive advantage. It is hard to overestimate the impact of an inspirational and gifted executive on a company's prosperity and work culture. Our mission is to put the right leader into the right environment; to find that unique chemistry that produces material advantage for both parties. What makes us different from other search firms is the level of seniority, thoroughness, and specific expertise that we bring to Cloud, Managed and Mobile executive search, in combination with our huge network of leaders in these areas.
At TrustedForce, we focus on senior executives and upper-tier candidates with long records of achievement and leadership. We bring credibility and subject matter expertise to each search, giving our clients the confidence that their culture and position requirements are well understood and represented, and giving our candidates the comfort that their career achievements and distinctive advantages are conveyed with accuracy and passion. A principled and meticulous approach is the foundation of our success and accounts for the robust, long-term support that we enjoy with our clients and candidates.
