Leaders Talent Report 2021: A Report for Ireland's Senior Executives

As featured in the Sunday Independent 25th April 2021

At Principal Connections, we partner with many of Ireland’s most noteworthy senior executive teams and boards to appoint the best leadership talent from the local as well as the international market.

The allocation of financial capital has long been acknowledged as a vital driver of an organisation’s performance. The value of a robust and responsive talent-management program however, has less widely been appreciated. There is no doubt that, organisations with effective talent-management strategies have a better chance of outperforming competitors and, among publicly owned companies, are likelier to outdo their peers’ returns to shareholders.

A Report by International Executive Search Agency Principal Connections

For the fourth year running Principal Connections compiled a survey that focused on the core trends influencing the leadership talent agenda in Ireland and the outlook for 2021. The findings of which build on the foundations of similar studies undertaken.

In the latest research programme, 192 executives with overall responsibility for the human resources function of their respective organisations completed the survey. Due to the ongoing global public health emergency as well as Brexit and new trade deal arrangements, the survey was undertaken a few months later than usual this year.
