Ex­ec­u­tives like to stay put

The Weekend Australian - Travel - - Career One -

MO­BIL­ITY is not as com­mon among ex­ec­u­tives as com­monly be­lieved. More than half the ex­ec­u­tives in a sur­vey of 900, con­ducted by bluesteps.com for the As­so­ci­a­tion of Ex­ec­u­tive Search Con­sul­tants (AESC), re­veal they will have worked for four to seven or­gan­i­sa­tions in their ca­reer.

This is a fairly low num­ber, says AESC pres­i­dent Peter Felix. ‘‘ Given the cur­rent skills short­age among se­nior ex­ec­u­tives around the world, I would have ex­pected ex­ec­u­tives to be an­tic­i­pat­ing nu­mer­ous job move­ments through­out their ca­reers.’’
